Mark was a fabulous addition to our wedding, he is an absolute professional and so unbelievably talented at what he does. We were delighted with the drawings, as were our guests who had so much fun with them. Would highly recommend Mark.

We were delighted with Mark's caricatures at our wedding! We really hoped that people would catch on to it and there was a queue for the whole night! Also very generous in staying for the full three hours despite a late start (our fault, not his!) he was very approachable and everyone seemed to enjoy the experience. His caricatures were fantastic and generated plenty of amusement!! It was something a bit different to have at the wedding and everyone was very taken by them????

We had Mark do a signing board for our wedding and also do live caricatures at our drinks reception. Mark is really easy to deal with, and professional-booked everything through email, always prompt with responses. We had the signing board well in advance of the wedding-and Mark was happy to add little personal touches, like our jack russell in the picture. All our guests loved Mark on the day, they were raving about him! People were delighted to have a caricature to bring home with them. Would definitely recommend Mark for your wedding.

Keith and I had a small intimate family wedding mid August . Mark's caricatures were a big hit with our guests, adults and children alike. The caricatures are a novel and great keepsake of our day. Mark is a true professional to deal with and went the extra mile to ensure all guests were drawn to perfection. Thank you Mark for your professionalism, putting our guests at ease and drawing a particularly flattering sketch of the bride and groom. We would not hesitate to recommend Mark and his caricatures - the best entertainment ever.

Mark was brilliant. It added a fun factor to our wedding and our guests loved getting their caricatures done. Some guests have framed them and are on display in their homes. It was great fun and something a little bit different. I would highly recommend mark, if anyone is in two minds about mark I say go for it, you will not be disappointed.

Instead of favours on the table we had Mark come and do caricatures of our guests while we were getting photos taken. He is lovely guy and very professional. Everyone loved his work! It was fun ice breaker too for our guests. We also asked Mark to do a signing board instead of a guest book. He was very patient with my requests and changes to our portrait I cant recommend him highly enough! Thanks Mark for everything!

Hi Mark Thank you ever so much for adding an extra something special to our wedding. Everyone absolutely loved you! All our guests raved about you and said what a wonderful idea it was. You are a real professional and a complete people person. Even those who were just watching you were enthralled. We have our caricature framed in our house and will treasure it. Thank you also for the extra time you took to draw my mum. She had been in the queue but had to leave and when she returned she was at the back again! She really loves hers and I am very grateful that you were so accommodating. Once again many thanks. I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone. It really is a great idea and just adds another little personal touch. Best wishes Vikki

On behalf of Kenneth and myself we want to say a big thank you to you. Your caricatures were amazing! Throughout the day / night guests were raving about how good you are. I would also like to thank you for the additional time you gave us to finish off the caricature of my friends parents, Claire & Greg. They had been in the queue for a while but unfortunately I think a family member or two of mine, skipped them..! So thanks again! They were delighted with it and have it framed and hanging in their house already! Thanks again Mark and we would highly recommend you to family and friends.

We had Mark perform at our wedding on the 18th March 2011. He entertained the guests for a few hours after the ceremony and before dinner. All our guests really loved it and thought it was a very unique fun idea! If you want to add a little something "different" to your day and give your guests an additional memento to take home, this is just the thing!

We had Mark Heng at our wedding last year and he was a huge hit. We didn't tell anyone beforehand that we had him booked, so it was a great surprise for everyone. I was a bit unsure on whether or not people would go over to have a drawing done, so we asked one of the groomsmen to go over as soon as he started. Loads of people went over to have a look and then of course wanted their's done so Mark was kept busy for 3 hours. He started straight after the speeches and continued for about 3 hours (while the band were playing). It was a great way of getting the crowd to mix because everyone wanted to show off their drawings. Loads of people have had their drawings framed and have them hanging up in their homes, so I definitely think it was a good idea.
