Having spoken to Marilia at Warble Entertainment, Mark was suggested as our best option for what we wanted. I spoke to Mark a week before our party, he asked what we require and what he felt able to do. Mark arrived in plenty of time. Mark was able to look and decide the best place for him to be. He was able to draw everyone that asked for pictures including singles doubles and groups. We found Mark polite understanding of what people required. They main thing Mark was able to do was draw people, the pictures are so good. Our guests are so pleased with what he did. I would recommend Mark to anyone. I would be happy to recommend Mark in person.

Excellent service, friendly and efficient, would not hesitate to use Warble again. Mark was absolutely amazing! He worked non-stop, earnt every penny of his fee and more. He was extremely popular with our guests and his pictures were amazing! The pictures on his section do not do his work justice! Mark was so popular with our guests we had to ask him to stay a further hour and he stayed even longer than that and worked non-stop. Thank you very much.

Mark arrived punctually and worked incredibly hard right the way through the party. He was always surrounded by people and remained calm and unflappable. We had a wonderful souvenir at the end of it with all the guests on one piece of paper which my daughter can frame, it will always remind her of her 18th. Thank you Mark!
