  I was back at the amazing Warwick House today for Jack and Becky’s wedding. I was booked by them at the Open Evening last year. Today was a lovely and sunny day- Perfect weather for a wedding! They booked me me for my most popular package. Firstly this is mix and mingle after the ceremony. I go around the guests in the bar area or garden and get everyone in the mood. Then it is around the tables during the wedding breakfast. Finally it is some special bride and groom tricks at the Top table as seen in the photos. The  photographs are screenshots of a video taken by a guest using my camera. This is something I do in order to make sure the reaction of the happy couple is captured.

Feedback

” We booked Owen for our wedding at Warwick House in Southam. If I am perfectly honest, I am lost for words! Owen melted my brain with so many different tricks. All of the Children were stunned at what they were seeing. At some points I wasn’t even sure if what I was seeing was just a trick. I am pretty sure it was real magic. Thank you so much Owen, hope to see you again soon” As I am now a recommended supplier at Warwick House, I will hopefully be doing many more weddings here. One of my first weddings was here, so its somewhere I am very fond of. One of my business cards features a photo from this first wedding. I now have a small gift that goes in every   goody bag that prospective brides and grooms get. I will also be at the open evenings that they hold a few times a year.

 It was the first time in a couple of years I was back at The Bond Agency in Birmingham City Centre. This is such a lovely and unusual Venue, situated in the Industrial heartlands of the City Centre. It is beside the canal, which makes for some amazing and unique photos.

Today it was for the Wedding of Emily and Thomas. They had seen me online and booked me to perform during the “lull”. This is the period after the meal and before the evening reception. This is a great idea at Venues such as the Bond Agency, as there is no accommodation. This means the guests literally have no where to go and can sometimes get frustrated whilst waiting for the evening reception. Therefore I circulated the tables at guests sat there performing some close up magic.

I was not the only entertainment, as there was a Photo Booth form Save the Date Imagery and a band as well. It was nice to see Jo Spurr from Save the date Imagery after we did a Wedding around the same time last year at Westin Hall. She was helping out a trainee photographer to make sure he was capturing what he needed, which he seems to do effortlessly. We popped outside to do my “Special Tricks” for the Happy Couple, and you can see the reaction shots below.

It was great to be back at New Hall again for the wedding of Jake and Stacey. I met them both at a wedding fair at Swinfen Hall, where they booked me on the spot.

 

 

 

First it was mix and mingle magic after the ceremony, followed by table magic during the meal. This is the most popular booking I do, for two reasons. Firstly its a great ice breaker for the two sets of guests, because a to of them will not have met before. It means that whilst Jake and Stacey were having the all important photographs taken, the guests were entertained and didn’t get bored or anxious.

Similarly, the same thing can happen during the wedding breakfast. The “perfect” table plan does not exist, meaning people will normally end up sitting with people they don’t know. Magic is the perfect thing to not only entertain the guest between courses, but become a talking point as well.

During the table magic it was time for my special Bride and Groom tricks, and the photographs capture these wonderfully.

Talking of photographs, the reason the photos from this wedding are so amazing is quite simple. There was an amazing photographer in Sally Wood Photography. Ive done many weddings with Sally over the years, and her work is always outstanding. She ( as the pictures will testify) always captures the reaction of Brides/Grooms/Guests perfectly. This is quite an art, and its amazing how many photographers fail to capture this. Sally never fails, and this is why she is the recommended photographer at New Hall.
