Wedding Magicians perform mind-blowing magic up close, for small groups of guests as they sit at tables, or as they move around and mingle. Expect dazzling tricks and card flourishes, as they turn a twenty pound note into a fifty dollar bill with a flick of the wrist, or make a bouquet of flowers disappear in a puff of smoke.
Magicians are an excellent choice of entertainment to book for weddings, where they are experts at keeping guests entertained while photos are being taken, or moving from table to table at your wedding breakfast, making guests roar with laughter and gasp at genuinely awe-inspiring magic. This is also a great way to encourage guests who don’t know each other to mingle, and get the conversation flowing.
At your evening reception, they can add some enthralling extra entertainment, while your band performs. Happy to work in a busy, noisy room, or in a quieter area, they will engage your guests one by one, so that everybody gets their turn to be involved in some real magic.
Close-Up Magic appeals to children and adults alike, so it’s the perfect family-friendly entertainment, great for keeping kids busy and they may even get the chance to learn how to perform a few tricks themselves. If you expect to have a lot of children at your wedding consider booking one of the many types of children's entertainers including specialist kids magicians so the yournger guest get a show of their own.
So, if you want to delight and thrill friends and family and make your special day truly magical, hire a Wedding Magician to provide a mixture of close-up magic, comedy, mind-reading and a level of showmanship that is rarely seen in other forms of entertainment.

WHAT SET UP REQUIREMENTS ARE THERE?
Wedding Magicians do not generally have a lot of equipment or set up requirements. They carry their props in their pockets (and up their sleeves) and move around from group to group. They will usually arrive around 30 minutes before they are due to start performing, to smarten up and prepare.
All they require is a backstage area in which to get ready. If there is no purpose-built dressing room available, a lockable office or back room should be sufficient. You should also offer your magician water, soft drinks and tea or coffee. If they are performing over a long period, they will also need a meal.
