Caricature live sketching for a wedding dinner

2 hour event at Raffles Hotel, for the wedding dinner of Joelle Lau & Jos Briggs.
Think this sketching service is part of the wedding package the couple got from the wedding specialist - Heaven's Gift.
My job is to sketch the guests' caricatures before the dinner starts.

The lady who controls the crowd for me.

One of the VIPs for this dinner. Guessed she's the mother of the groom.

What a pity! She blinks while I snap this photo. I think this caricature looks very much like her.

This is a good one, I think.

Sketched half way, and he needs to be in the ballroom, as the wedding dinner is starting soon.
Don't want to ink his caricature based on imagination, as many details and resemblance will be lost.
So while waiting for him, I inked in the torso and fingers part.

Since all the guests are in the ballroom, they request me to shift into the ballroom.

Not much time, and this is the last guest to be sketched before I leave.

Feedback received from the client's email on 21st May 2008:-
"Hi Jit

Not sure if you remember us but you did a "live" caricature session at our wedding on 28 March 2008. Our relatives and friends who got their caricatures drawn at the wedding were all very pleased. Thank you so much for making our party livelier!

I also wanted to let you know that Her World Brides wants to cover our wedding in one of their issues later this year and have asked for the contact details of the vendors at the wedding. I found your contact details on your website and I hope it is ok to forward the details and your web address to them. Please let me know if it's not ok.

Many thanks for being part of our celebration again
Joelle and Jos"

"Great! Thanks Jit. It was such a mad rush for us that day that we did not have the chance to say hi to you. I think you were there when we were getting ready for dinner and when dinner just started. Sorry about that. We saw your works through our guests afterwards though and wished we booked your services for a longer duration! Thanks again. We will let you know when the issue is published. "
