Celebrity Weddings Part 2
Thu 15th Sep 2016
Back in June 2007 I had a call from a well known agent asking me to go to Blenheim Palace at short notice to do a wedding. He did say that it was someone high profile and he couldnt tell me who at that moment. I felt really important as I drove through security at the gate past a number of paperazzi. It turned out to be none other that then England football captain John Terry. All the England players were there, Rooney, Lampard etc, although I tend to leave those people alone when it comes to drawing caricatures as I find a better response from the lesser known guests.
One thing I remember about the job was when me and a magician were just going backstage for a break. There wasnt much laid on for all the people working at the event, but we spied a little area that had a red carpet, luxury setee, drinks and a large fruit bowl all nicely set out. We were just going to settle ourselves down on the setee when a security guard came over and said " Sorry lads this area is set aside for Lionel Richie!" Apparently Mrs Terry is a great fan of the singer, so when your husband is a multi millionaire, and its your wedding... call his agent!!
