Picture the scene – it’s 2006 at Cruz 101 – One of Manchester’s premier gay nightclubs. There’s two drunk girls on the dance floor, their eyes meet across the crowded dance floor and the rest… well, we now have a happily married couple who have recently just had their first child!
I first met Kim and Jill at my sister-in-law’s wedding and they were both so full of fun. They both wanted to hire a caricaturist for their wedding so it seemed like serendipity when I got chatting to Kim in the queue for the buffet (my favourite part of any wedding ha ha!).
They had looked at other entertainment options for their wedding and had already started researching possibilities.
“We’d been looking online for photo booths and wedding entertainment, and then came across the idea of having a caricaturist to entertain our guests.
We wanted something special and slightly unique. Neither of us had been to a wedding with this kind of entertainment before. We also liked the idea of the guests being able to take home a permanent memory of the wedding night and just thought it would add a real ‘fun’ element to the night.”
They were a little worried whether the guests would embrace the idea of having their caricature drawn.
“But when we booked Beefy, we had no doubts whatsoever. First impressions were great! You were very approachable, friendly and a great personality. We knew you would be perfect for our wedding and had also seen how good your drawings were. We didn’t need to contact anyone else.”
I had a great evening drawing at Kim and Jills wedding. Their guests were so much fun and EVERYONE was on the dance floor. I drew non-stop for the 3 hour booking, and was paid to extend my booking ( a service I can offer if I am not booked for someone else later).
“You were brilliant and made a great contribution to our wedding day experience from both ours and our guests’ point of view. Everyone really embraced it and you stayed longer than initially booked as you were in such high demand! Seeing how much the guests were enjoying having their pictures drawn and you staying later made the experience better than we could have hoped. All our friends and family said you were wonderful and that it was such a good idea! We would definitely recommend you in the future.”
The best part of being a wedding caricaturist is contributing to someones special day and being part of their warm memories!
