Here’s a selection of live caricatures from a wedding in the Radisson Blu Hotel Limerick from the weekend! It’s so great to be almost back to normal at weddings and the buzz these days is just amazing. So much fun with these people on Saturday and it’s clear that people are loving being able to see each other in numbers again. Special thanks to Sian and the team in the Radisson for making me feel so welcome too. Looking forward to doing more weddings down there!
Here’s a selection of live caricatures from a recent wedding in the Village Barn Tyrrellspass. The Barn is a cute rustic alternative venue right in the middle of Tyrrellspass, full of lovely greenery (just look at my photos, that was indoors!). This was another deferred from 2020 wedding and I was delighted the happy couple … Read more
The bride in this one is a big Harry Potter fan so on went the Sorting Hat and wand! Also pictured are this family’s 3 pet cats, some weightlifting and a football with the Arsenal logo on it. This caricature was then printed on canvas which is mounted on a 40x60cm wooden stretcher by my friends in The Canvas Works in Kinsale and delivered straight to the venue (always good when you can tick one more thing off the list for the couple getting married!) If you’re interested in a personalised caricature signing board for your wedding just drop me a line. They make great wedding presents too!
Canvas Wedding Signing Board: with weddings now back in style my canvas signing boards are starting to move again and here’s one I created for a lovely couple earlier this year. It features symbolic objects from their lives including teaching, science, PE, technical drawing, engineering, and farming (you can see the prize bull in the background!)
When you order one of my canvas signing boards for your wedding, I create a unique caricature from photos of you both and incorporate as many jokes, hobbies and other references as you like. There is a short order form to complete to capture these details as well as your eye colour and hair colour (not always obvious from photos!). You then receive a 40cm x 60cm canvas print on a wooden stretcher, with white space around the caricature for your guests to sign on the day. It can either be sent to your home address or delivered straight to the venue, whichever you prefer. They’re supplied ready to hang but are also suitable for framing. Price at time of writing is €250 including delivery and 2 fine tip black Sharpie markers. You can see this signing board in place at the venue waiting for the guests signatures below! If you’ve any questions about my personalised canvas signing boards just drop me a line!
One of my first weddings back after lockdown was in Jack’s Old Cottage in Islandeady near Castlebar, a meticulously restored cottage museum in the heart of the Mayo countryside. After the long gap in live wedding caricatures due to lockdown I’m always anxious I’ll have forgotten how to do it but as you can see from the gallery below I think I’ve still got it! Each couple below took less than five minutes to draw. I suppose it’s like learning to ride a bike, once you can draw quick caricatures live you never forget! The cottage is open to the public and is free to visit and is worth stopping by if you’re in the area.
