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!

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.

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

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.
