martinus von tee

Martinus van Tee has drawn thousands of guests at hundreds of events throughout South Africa, and many top musicians, comedians and other celebs have been at the mercy of his pen at various launch parties, corporate functions and television appearances. His super fast caricatures are drawn in three minutes, providing laughs and entertainment, as well as a personalised keepsake of each event. When not drawing caricatures, Martinus illustrates children’s books and irritates his friends with his David Attenborough impressions.

Thank-you so much for attending our wedding. You were amazing, and the guests were in stitches with the caricatures you masterfully created, which, I might add, look exactly like each and every one of them! You brought a real fun element to the ceremony and we will always cherish that. Thank you again for being absolutely amazing. – Craig & Kerry

Our tips: Book your wedding entertainment

Discover some of the top entertainment companies in Cape Town. 

Wedding must-haves when it comes to entertainment are music, a DJ and/or a live band. But that is not where it needs to stop! Many couples opt to bring in extra entertainers especially during pre-drinks, before dinner or later in the evening, post-dinner.

Depending on your style and personality, there are so many options to choose from! From Marimba bands (to add an African flair) to Caricature Artists, Fire Dancers, Photo Booths and Mixologists.

One of our most popular choices is fire performances later at night. This is the most spectacular and jaw-dropping way to entertain your guests.

You don’t have to bring out the circus animals, but by adding a little extra touch or surprise element, you will help make your wedding a very memorable one.
