Botanical Gardens Birmingham Wedding Magician Owen Strickland
A lovely traditional British Wedding today at the Gorgeous Botanical Gardens in Birmingham. Congratulations to Jo and Rich. Jo is a Wedding Co-ordinator at another venue, so it was a big honour that she booked me.She had met me when I was at her venue for a wedding fair some time ago.
The Botanical Gardens is truly a hidden gem in Birmingham. However its staggering how many people have not been to see it. It has some lovely tropical glass houses with fish filled ponds and exotic plant life. It has aviaries, children playgrounds and beautiful lawns overlooking a bandstand. Peacocks wander around as you walk and are certainly not scared of humans!
There is also a lovely butterfly house on the far side of the gardens. There are so many different types in their and they fly around freely. If you are lucky, they will land on your hand or head, which makes an amazing photo. My friend Rachel Brown is a big butterfly fan and has built her own butterfly garden at home. She has written this article on how to help these amazing creatures
Back to the wedding-the photographer was Sutton’s Lisa Carpenter who took these amazing photos. They capture me performing at the tables during the wedding breakfast and then doing my special tricks for the bride and groom.
