I just wanted to send you a quick email to say a massive thank you for drawing at our wedding. You were by far our most popular entertainment with people still talking about it and showing off their pictures over 2 weeks later! I will definitely recommend you to all who have events coming up.
I'm sorry for not being able to talk on the night. I didn't realise how busy I'd be right up until the very end!!
I really hope to book you again in the future.
Paul, Just a quick message to say thanks for such a wonderful evening of entertainment we had a fab time and everyone is thrilled with your work. Alexander Mann solutions will definitely be booking you again!! First class from start to finish and so accommodating to our requests....thank you (posted on my facebook page).
Thank you so much for the wonderful sketches you provided for our guests at our evening reception.
They were truly wonderful and a real talking point and even guests who I didn't think would have let you draw them were laughing and so please with their pictures.
You were so polite and friendly and make a real impact on the evening.
Thank you so much,
Linda and Nick x
Thinking of having Paul at your event or wedding? My recommendation - do it! He really added a special touch to our big day and people loved the portraits he drew so much they are having them framed. There was a constant queue and buzz around him throughout our reception, and he was super friendly and easy to deal with beforehand and after the big day with a few additional portraits over email. Cannot rate highly enough!
We were pleased when Paul was free to attend our wedding. Paul was professional, smart and friendly and did a fantastic job at entertaining our guests with his drawing skills. Everyone loved their drawings, they were brilliantly done and were a talking (or in some cases laughing) point throughout the night, and even now! Everyone also loved the uniqueness of having a caricaturist at a Wedding. Paul has a real talent to capture people's attributes in a very quick sketch, the likeness of them was remarkable! We love the fact our guests have a memory from our wedding too. We hope to have an occasion in the near future where we can call upon his services again. There would be no hesitation at all to recommend Paul to family, friends and strangers. Thanks again Paul, great job!

We met Paul at a wedding fayre earlier this year and he drew us a couples caricatures in colour super quickly. We were sold and booked him for our wedding which took place on August. Paul was so much of a hit with our guests at the wedding we ended up paying him to stay on for an additional hour and it was worth every penny. Thank you so much for being part of our special day. A drawing of the top table was also a lovely surprise touch and a perfect memento.

Good Morning Paul,
Just a quick note to thank you for Saturday....everyone loved their drawings and so many people commented on how great you were! Thanks for fitting so many people in!
We are now both back from honeymoon and wanted to just tell you how pleased we were with your services on our big day!! Whenever I walked past your area there was a massive queue and always lots of laughter and smiles. So many people were talking about how good your caricatures were and I saw some cracking efforts the next day!
Thank you so much for all your help for adding that "extra touch" to our day and I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family in the future.
All the best

We must apologise for replying to you so late after our wedding day. We were away on our Honeymoon for 3 weeks, which was amazing.
Our feed back for you from our guests was wonderful, they all thought it was an amazing idea & you put our guests at ease having their picture drawn by yourself.
We would therefore like to say a huge Thank you to you for making our Wedding Reception memorable not only for us but for our guests too.We will definately recommend you to anyone who asks about you.
Once again Big heart felt Thanks

Dear Paul,I wanted to write to say a huge thank you for 'drawing the crowd' at my birthday party last night. I have had so many texts, calls and emails today thanking me for such a lovely evening and everyone mentioned how much fun they had had being drawn by you.
From children to Grandmothers you captured everyone so well. Your warmth and friendliness put everyone at ease and as you realised - it was not easy to get away from the party as everyone just wanted more! I cannot recommend you highly enough to others! Kind regards and many thanks again,
Jane - Beaconsfield
We wanted to thank you for making or Wedding so extraordinarily special.
All of our guests really enjoyed having their caricatures drawn by you at our wedding at Brocket Hall. They are still talking about it, we love ours, it is soon to be framed and hung as a great reminder of our lovely day.
Thank you for all you did and being such a nice guy and making everyone at ease.
It was lovely to meet you and discover that you only live around the corner from us.
Very Best Wishes
Steve and Hilary
‘I would like to thank Paul for helping to make the BPMA’s Summer Party a success.
The caricatures gave our guests a good talking point and provided a great memento of the event. Paul was very accommodating – even producing an overprint that reflected the organisation - and a pleasure to work with. We seemed to keep him busy for most of the evening and a number of the staff caricatures are now up in the office!
Highly recommended – thanks again Paul!’
Sarah Campaign Events Assistant, The British Postal Museum & Archive
Thank you for your patience with our many demanding guests on Saturday - I hope your arm and pencils got a rest yesterday!
We really appreciated having you there and you were a huge success. Everyone was so pleased with their "portraits".
I will certainly recommend you to our friends.
All the best.
Jane & David
We just wanted to contact you to say a huge thank you for your superb work at our wedding on 14thJune 2014. We had a fantastic day, everything we could have wished for and more. Everyone said what a great idea it was to have a caricaturist and how great you were. But I think you must have known people loved you by the fact you we so popular and ended up staying so late! Sorry we didn’t get to see you before you left (you probably escaped whilst you had a chance! J), but we really did appreciate all your hard work.
This is the caption one of our friends put next to her drawing which she copied on to Facebook:
“Our picture drawn at Michelle's and Dan's wedding . Bloody brilliant, one of the best things I've seen at a wedding : ) The guy got Scot to a tee I think!! www.facebloke.co.uk “
Please feel free to use any parts of this email on your website / advertising materials as a testimonial to the fact that we would highly recommend you to anyone wanting something at their event that will keep their guests amused as well as mean they have their own drawing to take away with them, which is also a lovely touch.
We’re still waiting for our ‘official’ photos, which should be with us soon, and then I’ll send you the across of us with you and our drawing. J
Dan and Michelle
The feedback from our wedding day regarding your drawings, has been positively overwhelming (just a shame we didn't get the chance to meet you personally). We would like to thank you for doing your stuff to make it the day that it was, so....
Clare & Vin Lewis
I would like to thank Paul, for his patience and his understanding of what we require, we were only able to send in photos and we were very limited on information, but the pictures we have received back and the excellent timing was unbelievable, I sent over 21 pictures and everyone came back in excellent condition and you could tell who was who with the added giggleI would highly recommend Paul as the attention to detail is amazing.
Dan and sarah holmes. (To be)
Just to say thank you for adding that extra special surprise at my party. All my guests loved their drawings and thought having you there was a fabulous idea. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you, and I know when the opportunity arises, our friends will also be contacting you. Thanks again
Just a short line to thank you for drawing caricatures of some of the guests at my daughter's wedding. Every one thought it was a wonderful idea and there were a lot of pleased guests who left with a drawing.
Thank you for being a part of our special day, you did some fantastic drawings I know you made a lot of kids and adults very happy.
They loved your caricature, especially the detail you captured, which meant so much to them.
We revealed it on an easel which gave the attending members of over two hundred the opportunity to see Barry & Kathy's reaction, which would've been a picture!
Thanks again Paul for your timely and quality work, it helped make a memorable evening, which I know Barry and Kathy will both treasure.
I am writing to show my appreciation to you for making our evening's entertainment even more fun than usual at this year's corporate Christmas Party.
Everyone had a great time and the 4 hours passed in a flash, I do not think there was a time when you didn't have a queue of couples waiting to be drawn by you, and there was much hilarity this week in the office with everyone comparing their caricatures.
Right from the outset you were charming to deal with, and far too modest, the caricatures were exceptionally good, even the one of me!
I have no hesitation in recommending you to others, and very much look forward to working with you again in the future.
All the very best for 2014

We cannot thank Paul enough for adding something so original and enjoyable to our evening wedding reception. He captured our Guests beautifully in ever caricature he drew and they couldn't wait to show us the end results. Several of our Guests commented on what a great idea it was to have him there and we noticed that he always had a queue of guests waiting to be drawn by him. His communication with us prior to our Wedding and his follow up after cannot be faulted. We would not hesitate in recommending Paul & Facebloke to others.
Have a great Christmas and a very happy New Year,
Jen and Grant
I booked Paul as a surprise; to entertain our guests and to give
them a fun, take away momento of the day.
He was punctual, in demand immediately and worked solidly for 4 hours; his work rate was phenomenal.
We had to keep him for an extra hour to meet the demand.
Throughout, he maintained a friendly, chatty rapport with our guests (like one of the family).
I have no hesitation in recommending Paul to anyone planning a celebration; one of the best decisions I made.
P.S. Remember when booking to factor enough time to allow for the demandClive M. (Father of the Bride, June 22nd 2013)
My husband and I requested Paul Vale for his caricaturist work at our wedding at Wasing Park in Aldermaston. Paul was helpful and informative from the beginning so we knew what service we would be getting. When out big day came Paul arrived with plenty of time and I was set up and ready to start drawing our guest before we knew it.
Our guests loved their drawings and people were gathered round watching all night. Paul's caricature pictures were a talking point all evening and Paul was fantastic entertainment. Polite, funny and enjoyable from start to finish.
Paul was sensitive when required and added more humour and risk with more confident guests.
It was an absolute pleasure having Paul there for the 4 hours of our evening reception and he really added something special to our wedding for us and our guest.
I would highly recommend using Paul's services for any event where you may consider a caricaturist he was fabulous with everyone from our children to grandparents. And well worth every penny of the very reasonable price he charges for the large amount of work he gives.
Fiona and James Pearson
Thanks Paul you were amazing! Everyone was talking about you and saying what a great thing to have at our wedding. Thank you so much for spending the extra time and being a part of our special day.
Cheers Ashley and Kevin
Matt and I are just back from Egypt and wanted to thank you for doing such a great job on the wedding day and for kindly staying on. I am pleased you were kept busy and everyone was delighted with their drawings. My team and I have arranged for our team picture to be framed and mounted in the office – its excellent!
Louise & Matt
Very many thanks Paul for joining us yesterday at Monkey Island. Your skills were a great success and very well received by all your 'subjects'. Thanks Again.
Sorry for the late response, Italy was amazing and we're settling into married life.
Thankyou so much for helping to make our day extra special. Everybody there was so impressed with your work, we have our picture hanging up already.
We're still visiting friends who also have them pride of place at home and it brings back great memories of the day.
Thanks again, we will be recommending you to everybody and hope we cross paths again soon.
Mr & Mrs Robinson
Thank you very much for your contribution to our entertainment last Monday. The caricatures drawn by you at our wedding reception at the Elvetham Hotel were greatly enjoyed by our guests and that was reflected by the fact that a majority of them lined up to be “caricatured “over 2 ½ hours!! We would gladly recommend you to our family & friends.
Barbara (& Krystof)
Just a quick thank you, for attending our wedding in June. You were a real hit and lots of our guest commented on what a fab idea to have a caricaturist. We already have ours framed although still think you gave me too much hair. I also know you created many young artists that night and the kids loved their pictures and watching you work your magic, plenty of oohhs and laughs every time one was finished. Would recommend you for any event it’s great what you do. Thanks once again
Marcus & Kay
Paul created an amazing piece of caricature art entitled the ‘Iron lady’ as a retirement gift stylising Cathy in a Maggie-esque fashion. Cathy was thrilled & amused when she opened it but not half as much as her colleagues! Great job Paul!
Thanks again and sure to speak again soon!
Cheers, MikeGlobal Quality & Food Safety Director
Paul came to our sons 6th birthday party this afternoon and had a big task to get through 15 children in an hour and a half. He handled the kids really well given he had to deal with changing attention spans! Everyone loved getting their portraits done to the point they were lining up, we would highly recommend Paul - he put a lot of smiles on faces.
Rhett & Rebecca
It was a marvellous surprise when you appeared at my birthday party as I had no idea that my wife had booked you. It was a really nice idea to have a caricaturist there and it was obvious that my guests were really enjoying the results!
My family are all very pleased with their caricatures and I am having them framed to remind us of what was a very enjoyable evening!
Best wishes, Martin
Thanks Paul. Yes, we thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the caricatures - loads of our guests said how good it was, what a great idea etc. I've mentioned you to lots of my clients too and will past you details on. It was a great success, so thank you.
Paul made us feel relaxed and able to enjoy the moment while he drew our picture. He is so quick but the quality is so high. I would recommend his services for all events as he brings a different dimension for guests to remember and take a special memento away with them.

Paul, thank you so much for coming last night. We raised an incredible amount and are absolutely delighted. I can see peoples profile pictures on Facebook being changed to their caricatures.
Hi Paul, Thanks for today you were fantastic, sorry it went on longer than planned but it will be something people talk about for a long time. It was great to have a really good laugh on a work day, plus involve the center team who have helped us out along the way.

Roberto loved his caricature- unfortunatly we didn't have a camera to take any photos of him with it which is a shame! All my mates loved it too and we probably all want one now so i'm sure you'll be hearing from me again soon!
Thanks once again for all your help!
It was brilliant!

Apologies for the delay in writing but we always fulfil a promise eventually!Thank you so much for your contribution to our Family Party on 30th June, everyone had a great time and I think you were probably the star of the show with children, young people and adults all amazed at your talents but also having something so unique to take home.Malinda and I were exhausted after the party, and I am sure you were too, but for us it is always a huge buzz to be able to give the kids a good time and we could not have done it without you, and our wonderful team of helpers.We wish you well for the future and would certainly recommend you for any future events/corporate occasions.
