Add some magic with a Close-Up Magician

Another fantastic choice for entertainment during your wedding drinks reception, wedding breakfast or indeed evening reception is to hire a close-up magician.  These talented individuals will amaze your guests as they perform illusions and sleight of hand tricks using small objects such as playing cards, coins, bank notes and more.  They can either perform from a central location, or we highly recommend letting them “work the room” as they perform to small groups of guests, attracting attention and of course providing a fantastic talking point for them afterwards.   A close-up magician will also require volunteers to work with them in their magic and this can be very memorable.  Want to find a close-up magician for your wedding?  Click here to browse our selection!

Keep children entertained and book a balloon modeler

If you are having many children attend your wedding, it is always a good idea to arrange entertainment to keep them happy.  We have scoured through all of our Children’s entertainers and we feel that balloon modelers are by far the safest choice when it comes to wedding entertainment.  As much as you might like the idea of a face painter, you wouldn’t want your wedding dress getting covered!  Balloon modelers are a clean, relatively quiet and fun form of entertainment for children as they sculpt animals, flowers, hats and more from balloons and making children’s faces light up as they see it happening all before their very eyes!  Play it safe and book a balloon modeler for your wedding day!

For something completely different, why not book a Belly Dancer?
