Newton Hall Caricatures

5 stars - Barrie Draws Caricatures are Highly Recommended booked Barrie Draws Caricatures for their Wedding

“We booked Barrie James for our recent wedding and he was fabulous and went down an absolute treat with our guests who loved his caricatures. He is so quick with his drawings and all our guests were talking about their caricatures all day, there were lots of laughs about the drawings!! It was a fabulous ice breaker for guests whilst we were having our formal photographs taken. If you want something that little different that all your guests will love (and something for them to take home) then I would certainly recommend you book Barrie x”


Cumbrian caricatures

5 stars - Barrie Draws Caricatures are Highly Recommended booked Barrie Draws Caricatures for their Wedding

“We booked Barrie for our wedding & from the first enquiry to the actual night he was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Professional but totally personal too, accommodating & went that little bit extra for us. Everyone loved their pictures on the night - wish I could have kept them all!! Barrie also did a drawing for us from some pictures prior to the wedding, which I gave to my groom as a surprise - we both love it & it’s already on the wall. Thank you so much Barrie, you totally rock !”
