A wedding day is indeed a special day for all parties involved. To celebrate this memorable occasion, people engage in all sorts of entertainment and fun. Take for example photo booths, the bride and groom, family, friends, as well as wedding guests get together to take photos and entertain themselves. But one must think, doesn’t everybody do that? Perhaps it’s a bit worn out. Therefore, many people have now turned towards hiring a wedding caricaturist to create exceptional caricatures for their wedding events. In this article, I will elaborate on the newly rediscovered phenomenon that is wedding caricatures.

What is a Caricature Artist?

Wedding Cartoonists are essentially illustrators who illustrate people and scenarios on the spot and these illustrations are usually filled with humorous depictions of the people at the wedding. It is always intriguing to know different perceptions of you, and wedding cartoonists try to act on that fascination. These illustrations capture and lift the mood of the wedding perfectly often becoming the highlight of the wedding day. The method of illustrating followed by your wedding cartoonist depends on what you and your partner prefer. You can opt for Illustrations that are drawn by the traditional style on paper, or they can be digitalized or digital caricatures (Illustrations drawn on a drawing tablet).

Wedding artists usually mix and mingle to get the feel and mood of the wedding and different guests that are attending, they then proceed to translate that in the form of illustrations. The artists being hired are experts in their field, and they make sure that the final art piece lands perfectly for the person drawn as well as the rest of the audience. These illustrations often end up on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or TikTok accounts of people and some even frame it! Most people consider wedding cartoonists to be the perfect form of entertainment on the most important day of their lives


The style or type of illustration you can get varies from one artist to another. The illustration style you could ask for can either be based on impressions, realistic depictions, or an abstract form. The realism art style focuses more on paintings that are a pure reflection of real-life, almost photograph-like sketches, whereas, the impression style focuses more on what the artist’s perception is of people and the surroundings, while the abstract form of paintings incorporates different shapes and forms to encapsulate an idea. Some artists tend to use a mix of all these techniques. These artists are experts who have the ability to best judge the type of illustration that may depict or portray a specific scene.

They can adeptly read into scenarios and use their vision to encapsulate that into their illustrations with a specific style. You can always discuss and let your wedding cartoonist know what style of artwork you desire in illustrations, or you could know what they are best at, in order for the final product to turn out perfect. However, it goes without saying that the best way to receive an artwork that embodies your vision is to give the artist as much creative freedom as possible and to let them know ahead of time about any unique preferences you have concerning the art style.
