It's that time of year again... Wedding Fair Season!
If you're looking for some wedding inspiration, here are the fairs and shows that Cornwall Caricatures will be exhibiting at in 2018. Come along to any of the following dates and you can also claim your free caricature! I hope to see you soon...
I was absolutely thrilled yesterday to win Best Wedding Entertainment at the Simply Weddings Awards 2017!
Having only been in business for 2 years, with a big chunk of this spent having a baby and taking time out of working to be with my son, I was shocked to discover that I had still come out on top, beating some absolutely fantastic competition.
What makes these awards so special, is that only real brides and grooms can vote, so unlike some awards which can be in danger of becoming a popularity contest, the Simply Awards are very authentic as they rely on the testimonials and experiences of genuine couples who have booked each supplier for their own wedding.
I was thrilled to have won and the award now takes pride of place on my mantelpiece (away from inquisitive reaching baby hands)!
I just want to say a tremendous thank you to each and every one of my couples who took the time to send me such incredible testimonials just like the one below. I cannot thank you enough. It warms my heart to read what an impact I made for your most special day, and I truly am living the dream, getting to call this my full-time job.
Cornwall may be one of the most popular destinations to get married in the UK, but it's never seen a large scale Bridal exhibition...until now!
The Biggest Wedding Exhibition ever to be held in Cornwall, The Bridal Show Southwest, takes place across 2 days on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th April from 10am-5pm. Set in the exhibition halls at The Royal Cornwall Showground, over 100 wedding professionals will be showcasing everything that Cornwall has to offer for your wedding.
Cornwall Caricatures are delighted to say that we will be exhibiting - you can find us on stand number 38!
Not only will you be able to chat to Cassie about caricatures for your day, but you can also pick up one of our new brochures, and of course get your free caricature portrait drawn!
As well as your free caricature, there are also free horse and Carriage rides from Devon and Cornwall carriages, a children's fairground to keep the little ones entertained and even a specialised wedding creche so you can relax and browse to your heart's content.
On the main stage are three catwalk shows everyday at 11.00am, 1.00pm and 3.00pm, so don't forget to get your VIP tickets to book your reserved seating. Also on stage will be many other live acts from Jazz singers, opera singers and guest speakers.
On 2 smaller demo stages will be live demos from makeup and hair, magic, and even info on how to tackle all the legalities of getting married.
Tickets are now on sale - click here to purchase.
Cornwall Caricatures hope to see you there!
I was delighted to be booked by Orange Chilli Events as Entertainment for the South West Wedding Awards 2016 at Liskeard Public Hall on 17th March, alongside the amazing magician, Dan Brazier.
I started the night at 6pm in my caricature drawing area, where guests arrived for their welcome drinks and swiftly started to queue for their caricature portraits.
Dinner was then served, so Dan and I worked the room, entertaining guests at the tables - him with his tricks and me with my clipboard and pens.
Once the ceremony was over, I then drew for the after party, before packing up my pens at 11pm.
I drew caricatures for Cornwall and Devon's top wedding suppliers, and some even took to the photo booth with their caricature drawings!
Tina, of Orange Chill Events, said: "Cassie had a busy night at the South West Wedding Awards 2016. She delighted all our guests with her wonderful work. My only regret is I didn't get chance to sit down with her. I would highly recommend her to anyone."
A big congrats to all the winners and finalists.
The tree is down, the selection boxes have been finished (Toffee Pennies and Bountys don't count!) and we are now well into January.

Wow just wow! We booked Cassie for our wedding at Trevenna in August and she was absolutely amazing. She is so talented, extremely professional and so lovely. From the moment she sat down our guests were mesmerised with her caricatures and there was always a huge queue. Her drawings are fantastic, and our guests loved being able to take away a memento from our celebrations. We loved having Cassie at our wedding and would highly recommend her to anyone. She works so hard and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you, Cassie, for capturing myself and Rob and of course our guests with your amazing caricatures. Love Sarah and Rob x
Cassie is extraordinarily talented. We hired her to draw at our wedding in July and every one of our guests commented on how fantastic her drawings were. There was a constant queue of people waiting to have their turn. So much so that when her initial 2 hour booking had come to an end, in order to avoid disappointing those still queueing, she agreed to stay for longer and invoiced us after the event. A professional service from start to finish. We can't rate her highly enough. A beautiful keepsake of our special day.
We had Cassie draw at our wedding on Saturday 16th June her caricatures are amazing . All our guests absolutely loved it . If you are looking for something different to highlight your day then we recommend booking Cassie it’s also great that your guests get to take away a personal momentum.
Cassie is a lovely lady who talks whilst she draws she’s got such an amazing talent .
Can’t thank you enough Cassie you helped enhance our amazing day X
We had Cassie at our wedding on the 26th May 18...It is one of the most fun things you can ever have at a wedding..... Cassie is fantastic at what she does and everyone agreed.... We even had to book her for an extra hour as we run out of time....Cassie is highly recommend in our books.. ���
Brilliant idea. We saw Cassie at the Royal Cornwall Show last year and her drawing of my daughters we used for a fathers day present. Then we booked Cassie to come to my bday party and her pictures were brilliant. Everyone loved them. Now considering her for another event as well. Couldn’t recommend highly enough. She is a brilliant artist and lovey to have at any event as well.
Csssie drew at our wedding on 12th May , she really is fantastic at what she does , a real hit with our guests who all thought she was very clever . If your looking for something fun and quirky to book for your wedding then Cornwall caricatures is the one �
Can’t recommend Cassie enough. Everyone had an amazing time and it provided great entertainment for the afternoon. A lot of people are getting frames to hang them in their homes now also so it’s been a fantastic wedding gift for all!
Cassie was friendly, welcoming, chatty and very accommodating when we made a last minute decision to extend the duration on the day. Couldn’t have asked for better service!
Cassie was amazing, our guests haven’t stopped talking about her and they all loved their caricatures. It created a real fun buzz at our wedding yesterday and really was one of the highlights! Thank you so much Cassie for helping make our day so special x
Cassie drew our guests at our wedding on the 7th April and she was absolutely amazing!!!! Everyone loved having her there and she had everyone spot on. There were even some celebrity resemblances �. Would highly highly recommend Cassie she's such a lovely lady and is amazing at what she does. Xx
Cassie’s talent is absolutely incredible. She drew lots of toddlers (and 2 men toddlers!) at my daughter’s 2nd birthday party. Very happy Parents and children with their caricatures to take home. Highly recommend xx
My Husband and I met Cassie around 2 years ago in Cornwall while on a short family break. Not only is Cassie talented in what she does providing a hilarious lasting memento, but she is a lovely lady herself. We asked Cassie if by any chance she would provide her skills at our wedding in 12 months time, she agreed and was our most unique and friendly entertainment for our special day. Our guests still talk about Cassie and her brilliant service and the most fantastic thing is when we go and see our friends and families we can find their caricatures on walls and in frames.
Nothing was too much, we are so grateful. What a wonderful lady!
Mr and Mrs Griffiths
Can't recommend Cassie enough, she is fabulous !!! We knew we wanted a caricature from early on and Cornwall caricatures did not disappoint. Cassie arrived and started to draw as the meal was ending which was a great time for us to avoid the lull between day and evening. All the guests loved their drawings, they are a great keepsake. Don't hesitate to book you and your guests will love it.
We booked Cassie as our evening entertainment for our recent wedding and it was a total joy! Cassie is so warm, friendly and funny, she spent most of the evening surrounded by guests watching her draw. We were all totally amazed by her skills! She was happy to stay on extra time to ensure all of our guests (and us) got drawn. It was a unique experience for our guests and worth every penny!
Thank you Cassie for your amazing work!
