This colour caricature in pencil drawing was for a wedding present from a guest at this lovely couples wedding.
I had a fantastic time having a glimpse into this very special day and to draw a fun caricature incorporating very personal details of the bride and groom, such as their love of boating, the wedding venue, love of champagne and how they met.
Congratulations to you both and I hope this drawing makes you smile for years to come.
