Absolutely fantastic, would recommend him in a heart beat. The quality was fantastic and would highly recommend the pre-drawn item.
Michael was amazing, we are so glad that he was part of our wedding day. Unfortunately he was slightly delayed due to train issues which were not his fault however, he informed us that he was going to be a little late which wasn't a problem but we really appreciated his communication. We had so many comments from our guests saying how friendly he was and what a good job he had done with their caricatures! He even stayed late to fit in the last few people. Would definitely recommend and use again in the future!
Michael arrived early and stayed late. He was very friendly and professional and his art work was excellent. He made a really good impact with my party guests. Thank you
Everyone loved Michael. As soon as he arrived he had a crowd around him. He was obviously passionate and really enjoyed his work... Great work. Captured everyone perfectly. Highly recommend him.
Michael arrived, on time and smartly dressed. Our celebrations, by this time, were in full swing and Michael began to circulate, introducing himself and drawing caricatures of our guests. During the evening all my wife and I could hear were riots of laughter from the area where Michael was working. During the three hours Michael was with us, he got through a phenomenal amount. We would recommend him. Alma & Dave Coltman
Michael and his colleague were brilliant on the evening of our wedding. They were friendly, polite and the caricatures were great. Our wedding guests were very impressed with our surprise only wished we could have booked him for a bit longer as so many people wanted him to sketch them :) Very happy with Michael the caricaturist.
Michael really helped make it a very memorable day indeed. He was part of a wedding proposal, and he played his part superbly. The art and style of Michael's artwork was just perfect, and is now just waiting a perfect frame to match his art work, before we place it pride of place above the fireplace. Could not recommend Michael more highly, and was so impressed, we're trying to work out how we can fly him to Brussels for the wedding! Dream day - thank you.
I cannot recommend Michael highly enough!! Friendly, funny and a great artist!! He was such a hit with our guests!! Warble have been great - Niki has been Ã¼ber efficient. Great work. Thank you once again.
Went down a storm at our event. Pictures were fab and everyone enjoyed it.
Michael was very punctual. He delighted our customers with his drawings and even took photos to send us. Great job!
I thought Michael was great. He worked the crowd very well without being intrusive, so it worked well. His images were great too. Mine is going in a frame!
Michael is an absolutely gem! A pleasure to have him use his creative flair on our special day.
Oh my, what can l say... Michael was an absolute star, his talent as a caricaturist is second to none. He arrived on time with a smile on his face and once settled to do the sketching he made the guests feel comfortable chatting to them so he had an idea of what to put in the sketch. All my guests were delighted with them and all asked where l had found him. He gave more time than booked for because there were a couple of guests still needing to be sketched, Michael was more than happy to extend his time to do them. As a said earlier... A Star!! As a company Warble are excellent, the booking was easy to do and any queries l had were met with quick professional replies whilst maintaining a friendly approach. I cannot speak highly enough of the whole experience l received from your company and from Michael. I would not hesitate to recommend you at all and Roger (the birthday boy) LOVED it. Thank you once again, best wishes, Michele

How many people can you draw per hour?
Pen and ink caricatures - between 12 and 14 per hour
iPad caricatures - between 7 and 10 per hour
How do we get the iPad caricatures?
The caricatures are immediately sent to guests by email. You can choose to add instant printing too but this will cost a bit extra
If we want you to stay longer, can we extend the booking on the day?
This will depend on the time the original booking finishes and also whether the artist is available and happy to do so.
Can you draw my family/friends from photos during the event?
It's not ideal to spend the booking time drawing someone's family and friends from photos while other guests at the event are queuing up. Exceptions will only be made for the host, bride and groom, birthday girl or boy. The other situation is if the artist has drawn everyone at event before their booking time has finished.
With the iPad caricatures, do you just add a filter or just photoshop an image?
No, the caricatures are hand drawn on iPad using drawing software and an apple pencil.
Caricature Place Cards & Wedding Favours
Won't my guests be offended?
Our stationery is what we describe as subtle caricatures - because we want your guests to enjoy their drawing. You could say our drawings are more cartoon than caricature.
How big are place cards?
The caricature are A6 size which is 148mm x 105mm
How do I send photos of my guests?
We will create a gallery where you can upload photos of your guests as you get them. You can alternatively send the gallery link and password to your guests asking them to each upload a photo or selfie by a certain date.
If I send the link to the guests, will it not ruin the surprise?
No, the site where photos are uploaded doesn't have our names or any caricatures so the only thing that your guests will see when they log in is photos of other guests. The artwork is uploaded in a completely different gallery which we will give you access to.
What about the guests that are not good with technology or don't have internet?
You can ask relatives or friends to take a photo of them or you can take a great photo from their Facebook or Instagram and upload it into the gallery.
Can I just collect photos of my guests and upload them all myself?
Is there a minimum number of guests for place cards, seating plan and guestbooks?
