I would just like to say how much everyone enjoyed Neil at my daughter's wedding last night. He was so friendly and mingled very easily... worth every penny.
Guests loved the touch and it was good that Neil was not staying in one spot as well.
Definitely recommend Neil. Punctual, polite and professional. All the wedding guests love their drawings. Thank you so much.
Five out of Five!
Neil was brilliant, happy to interact with our guests and very professional. If we are in Aberdeen for another event I would happily use him again.
Neil was great on the day. He was friendly and very professional. My guests loved it and thought it was such a nice touch and a good ice breaker for all the guests and he brought many laughs too! We would highly recommend Neil for any function, but for a wedding he's perfect to add that little extra to the day!
On time, pleasant and got as many pics done as he could. Everyone loved it.
All the guest loved their drawings, they were great. Would definitely recommend Neil.
Neil was fantastic at our wedding. All our guests commented on how unusual having a caricaturist was at a wedding, but they loved it. All the caricatures are so similar to the people too, they are ace haha! Thanks again Neil x
He looked great in his Kilt and Fez! Thank you Neil, everyone was so pleased with your art work xxxxx
Neil was a complete success! I booked him as a surprise at my sister's wedding and everyone ended up with a fabulous memento of her special day. The caricatures were excellent and they were all framed and displayed at the blessing party last Saturday! Neil made everyone feel relaxed and everyone had their pictures done and everyone loved them - even Bailey the dog was included! Thank you very much Neil!
Us and the guests were very happy with Neils work. The top table loved their pre-drawn caricatures and guests on the day enjoyed getting drawn. We weren't there during the drinks but Neil told us he was busy. Thanks again. Mr & Mrs Friday
Hello Charlotte, we were delighted with Neil's brilliant caricatures. I am sure he went home with writer's cramp! Everyone wanted to be a subject! Thank you for your help in setting this up for us, we will not hesitate to use your services again if required. Many thanks.
Neil the caricaturist was absolutely fantastic! All the guests loved him and the drawings were fab!
Fantastic service, fantastic day. Neil was amazing. Thanks again.
Everyone at my party thought Neil was a fantastic caricaturist. The people who didn't want their picture drawn seemed to enjoy looking over his shoulder and admiring his work too. He worked quietly away in the background. Surprisingly he managed to do about 20 pictures in 2 hours. Value for money, nice chap, I'd recommend him.
We decided to have that element of fun at our wedding and Neil proved to be just that, he arrived just before time and started mingling with our guests, and before you knew it everyone knew he was there and was trying to get there picture done with him. Even after 3 weeks guest are still speaking about him at the wedding. I would definitely recommend Neil.
Neil fitted in brilliantly with our family and guests. He was friendly and unobtrusive allowing people to come and go either having caricatures drawn or watching. It was a great talking point and something to take away from a special occasion. We have all enthused about him and thoroughly enjoyed having him with us. Thank you very much.
Neil was amazing, he was so quick in his drawings, all our guests thought he was brilliant. Definitely money well spent. Couldn't recommend Neil highly enough.
If 5 is excellent then Neil should have a 10 he was more than excellent. He engaged with colleagues really well, I hope we can use him again in the future.
Neil was brilliant our guests are ecstatic with their pics! I love our one and wasn't even aware Neil was there when getting our one done! Would highly recommend Neil.
Neil was great - arrived on time (a bit before which which was helpful). Very polite and chatted well. Worked to our specifications. Checked with us before he left. Many thanks, Helen
Neil was our chosen entertainer at our Valentines Day wedding reception at the Hetland Hall Hotel near Gretna. He arrived on time and looked very smart in his tartan waistcoat! We hadn't told anyone he was coming and the whisper went round that there was a magician - much to our amusement! Neil just mingled with our guests effortlessly and when we heard the roars of laughter after his first drawing, we knew we had chosen the right man. Everybody commented that it was a fantastic idea and about how well Neil had captured everyone. We would thoroughly recommend Neil to anyone looking for a wedding entertainer!!! Many thanks, Michelle & Michael Cox
Only one word to describe the artist ''Excellent''. The drawings were wonderful and caused quiet a giggle. Our guests commented on what a novel idea the artist was and would most certainly recommend. Thank you for making our evening special, Danny and Louisa Pye

Excellent. Captured caricatures of all the guests of which there were around 30 and guests had a great keepsake of the night. Very professional and good value for money.
Hi, sorry its taken so long to reply! Just wanted to thank Neil for his fantastic creations on my daughter's big day, it was a real icebreaker and had everyone talking.

Thanks for adding that wee bit of something different to what was a most perfect day.
