Would definitely recommend Mike as the caricatures were very true to life - our guests loved them. He manages to capture and exaggerate their features without being cruel. He was also a lovely guy, chatting to guests as they sat for their portraits and happy to explain how he created them Thanks Mike! :-)

I just wanted to write to say thank you so much for your work at our wedding. Everyone loved your caricatures, it is lovely to go round to people's houses and see them framed up on the wall. Such a lovely keepsake and brilliantly done.
