Hi :)

I am an Irish, visual artist specialising in flattering LIVE CARICATURE entertainment, and quirky Wedding Invite / Signing Board designs too.

My rate for Live Caricature Hire is

€120/hr 

I provide discounted hourly rates the longer you hire me for: 

2 hours €240 

3 hours €300

4 hours €380

5 hours €460

6 hours €520

7 hours €580

8 hours €630

Hiring me for art entertainment will have kids and adults occupied and enthralled as semi pro models ;) and art skill appreciators watching their friends’ and family’s resemblance come to life over my shoulder. Many people find it a relaxing and interesting experience and I always do justice to their best wedding look leaving them with a frame-worthy, unique and lasting memento of your big day. 

I can draw live using either traditional paper and pen (which guests take away with them) 

OR

I can use my iPad Pro to draw them digitally, which are emailed to guests afterwards. I can wirelessly stream my digital drawings to any larger screen in the wedding venue for greater viewing entertainment :)

Pre-ordered gift caricatures drawn from photos for invites & signing boards can contain a great deal of character, history, and humour. I work closely with clients to capture as much of the couple's personality as possible. Brainstorming on creative designs is part of the fun (or you can easily leave it all up to my experience) and rest assured that I will put my very best artistic sheen on top.

Prices vary depending on the level of detail requested - Line, Black & White, Colour etc. Please contact me directly for a tailored quote.

Let’s get crafty,

My husband and I highly recommend Andrew who was an amazing addition to our small covid wedding. He offers such a professional service and the communication thought out was fantastic. He offers excellent value for money as watching the drawings come to life entertained everyone as well as providing the best keep sakes. So lovely to deal with and very accommodating. He is very skilled and we love the caricatures so much we want to frame those of our immediate family to hang in our home.

Andrew is a very talented artist, a dream to work with and excellent value for money to entertain our guests. All our guests enjoyed getting their portrait during the drinks reception. I also commissioned a family portrait as a surprise to my husband and kids which he completed the month before our wedding. Andrew created an amazing piece we will cherish in our home forever. We would highly recommend Andrew for your wedding day.
Response from Andrew Goti Caricatures
It was a pleasure to get to meet you and your family in person after having studied your faces in detail :) Good choice on your surprise present ;) Was flattering to see both the original drawing framed and also an enlarged print at Glasson Lakehouse. Thanks very much for your kind words.

Andrew was fantastic all the guests loved his friendly demeanor and he is a great artist. I would highly recommend Andrew and he is very flexible. He did not get time to be a few portraits so he completed them at home and made sure they were delivered after the wedding which is thoughtful. Thank you Andrew for being a reliable supplier :)

Thanks Sana & Eoghan for having me at your wedding. Very happy everyone liked their drawings. All the best :)

Andrew was the caricature artist at our wedding in Sept this year. It was a last minute decision for us, but are we glad we did it now!!! Highlight of the day for some of our guests and he even did one for us with our dogs in the background from a photo of them. Andrew was so accommodating and always responds in rapid time. I couldn't imagine not having or picture now, it's just fantastic and so close to the real thing as was everybody's. I couldn't recommend him enough. He interacted with all our guests and found out all he needed to know to make the best picture of them. Don't even think about it, just book him!
Response from Andrew Goti Caricatures
Aww shucks. Love a bit of flattery I do. Thanks for the review Natalie and Ciaran. Glad to hear everyone enjoyed their drawings and particularly glad you and your dogs love your follow on caricature:) See you for that pint soon. Cheers!

Andrew was amazing!!! I'd recommend him to anyone. He came all the way to Galway for us, was highly professional, arrived early, stayed far later than he was booked for and really made a great effort with our guests. They all loved him, he is very easy to talk to. I wouldnt hesitate to book him again! Thanks again Andrew :)

We hired Andrew for our wedding day and were very pleased with his service. He did a fantastic job and stayed quite a long time until the vast majority of people had been drawn and the drawings were fantastic. You could easily recognise most of the people in the pictures without knowing who he was drawing. They were very accurate. I would highly recommend him, it's definitely worth the money.
Response from Andrew Goti Caricatures
Cheers Declan. Glad you and your guests enjoyed the drawings. I am available for any party to draw live or do a pre prepared detailed gift caricature. Hope to see you again in the future.

We booked Andrew to do some of his amazing art work for our wedding to keep our guest occupied while we were off getting photo's. This went down and absolute treat and everyone commented on how great he was and how friendly he was while drawing the caricatures. In terms of value for money, we were pleasently suprised at the cost and would have paid double for the service he was offering. Would 100% recommend!

Dear Weddings Online, I don’t feel a review is necessary for this talented artist when you can see the fruits of his Labour on this site. However, I do feel there’s a need to give feedback and a review of my own experience to show how much his artistic magic and inter-personal skills made our wedding the talk of the town for weeks and months after. Words from the guests “We want to emulate your wedding” and then asking for all the contact details/business cards including Andrew Goti’s. What do you need in a wedding caricature artist? Talent-Andrew has abundance of it and is able to interact with his subjects to tailor make a finished piece that you will be proud and excited to take home. Personable and social – with blend of Irish and Italian blood, his charm and banter helps get the best out of his subjects. Affordable and Flexible – Andrew ticks the box in both these categories. He undercuts many reputable artists and he’s self-sufficient and was not a something/someone we had to worry about during a busy&hectic wedding schedule we had to plan. All I can say, this is a great opportunity to hire a professional to add joy/laugher and a memory your guests will get to take home with them. Do something different, make your wedding stand out from the crowd. Instead of spending and extra 100 or so on fancy name tags for the tables, hire this proven artist for a few hours and you won’t regret it. If I am wrong, write a review about me not being able to give reviews. Yours in Wedding planning Jonathan and Ania Whitty. Wedding: 24th October 2015 Poland
Response from Andrew Goti Caricatures
I can verify outright that your review ability is top notch ;) Cheers first for the invite, for the kind words here and glad yourself, Ania and the wedding party enjoyed my caricature service so much. It was a fantastic weekend to be a part of. Andy

Our picture was presented to us by our family at our wedding, so it was a complete surprise !!! We loved how he captured my love of Camogie and combined it with my husbands occupation as a plumber. Andrew stayed with us for the evening in the Keadeen hotel doing caricatures for out wedding guests, it went down so well and guests were delighted to have the opportunity to bring it home then afterwards:-) Our picture hangs proudly in our house today....I'd highly recommend this to be apart of any party or wedding !!!!

We had Andrew at our wedding in trim castle and I cannot recommend him enough! Our guests loved the idea and he is very talented he was very flexabile as we wanted him for the drinks reception and 2 hours after the meal which wasn't a problem for him. He had took pictures of guests on his phone and the pictures ready for them after there meal which was amazing as more guests got to get a drawing. He was also very good to send me on pictures after the wedding he had drawn of the guests so we got to see them all 10 out of 10 nothing was to much trouble for him
Response from Andrew Goti Caricatures
Cheers Lauren and Gary for the nice review. i enjoyed working at your wedding too. Glad to see Gary still uses his caricature :) https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=977333812304654&set=a.144880985549945.19210.100000841339400&type=3&theater
