Your wedding is a truly special occasion and adding a magician is a great way to make your day even more memorable for you and your guests.
A question often asked is when do I perform?
I would recommend either the day time champagne reception or the evening party, don't worry about me working while there is a band on or disco, I am used to it and it gives the people that don't want to watch the band something else to see.
Most weddings work like this: (please bare in mind I am yet to attend a wedding that runs on time).
The Day Time: (2 hours)
2pm Ceremony starts runs for about half an hour.
2:30pm Guests are now arriving at the venue for the champagne reception, at this point I start to entertain your guests until you arrive.
After you’ve arrived the photographer will often take you to one side to do some pictures of just you two. Again I’m there to entertain while you’re having this done.
The group shots are next so my job is:-
A: Entertain them while they are waiting to have their picture
B: Stop anyone wondering off that might be needed for the
Just before the line-up I will take you to one side and perform a trick that’s so special only the bride and groom ever get to experience it all based on fate.
3:45pm Line up starts as guests go into the room to be seated, at this point I will be going round the tables and asking your guests to put messages on the back of playing cards, this special pack of message cards is for you to keep as a souvenir of your special day.
4pm The food or speeches are about to start so just before I go (and if you want it) I do a trick in front of everyone with the Best Man (ask me about the best man trick for more details).
4:30pm The speeches start (at this point you really don't need me now as you paying for time that I'm just stood around watching as I can't perform while they are on).
So you see I’m only needed for 2 hours.
From experience I wouldn't worry about the in between bit as guests staying in the Hotel will go freshen up as will the ones that live close by - (every bride and groom worry about this time, and I have worked it in the past when people have really wanted me to, but trust me I end up performing to about 10-15 people and its a waste of you money).
The other thing is I have to finish the day time slot around 5pm in order for me to get to the next wedding for the evening.
The Evening time (2.5 or 3 Hours packages are available):
This is the most popular time slot as its when you have everyone from the daytime plus the evening guests.
I normally start at 7:30pm and perform walk round and table magic till 10pm or 10:30pm (depending on package) when I sit down with yourselves and do a special performance for you both all based on fate. This is the strongest trick I perform and is only ever performed for the bride and groom (although others are welcome to watch).
In the 3 hour (heart package) I also carry an extra pack of cards that will over the night become a special pack of memory cards for yourselves with messages on them from your guests capturing your special day.
