Mike was absolutely fantastic - from first booking him through to turning up on the day. He was always prompt at responding to emails, very polite and gave useful recommendations as to best utilise him on the day. Fast forward to our wedding day and he turned up on time, well presented and made himself known to both of us, I then asked him to set up where he feels best. The guests arrived and he began his work, somehow combining his talent with humour, I have received countless compliments about him and everyone was thrilled with his work, it was great to see people laughing from beginning to end while he was drawing them. I cannot recommend Mike enough, book him and you will not be disappointed.
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.
