First the couple booked me for mix and mingle magic after the ceremony. A nice change for this wedding though. They wanted guests to stay down at the beautiful island area where the ceremony takes place. Unbelievable I had never been down to the island, as usually everyone returns to the hotel. However I have really missed out, because its beautiful down there.This meant I was going round the Island area and performing for the guests in small groups. .The weather just about held out as their had been a lot of rain this week. Thankfully it passed just in time and it actually ended up quite a warm day.

Then it was around the tables between courses during the wedding breakfast. Again this involves doing a small show at each table. The advantage of this is that everyone at the wedding gets to see me perform. Because Andrea and Jake booked my Platinum Package, the fact that they did speeches before the food was served made no difference. I dipped out f the room as they happened, before returning to do the tables.

Finally it was my trade mark special tricks for the bride and groom.

Bordesley Park Magician Owen Strickland was back at the venue again today for the scorching hot wedding of Zoe and Dan.

The couple booked me after meeting me at an open day at the venue last year. As the Bordesley park recommended supplier I exhibit at all the open days (where Im available ) and appear in the brochure. Exhibiting at the open days is a brilliant opportunity to show coupes what I can add to their day. There was a funny incident with Zoe’s mum at the o[en day, that gets mentioned a lot when we have been speaking in the last 12 months. Lets just say she got rather “excited” when watching me perform for them.

Today was the scorching hot day we have been waiting all June for. The car temp said 34 degrees as I pulled up, and not surprisingly the marquee side was taken down. This left guests an uninterrupted view of the amazing Worcestershire Countryside.

The Lull

Zoe and Dan booked me to perform mix and mingle magic during the “lull”. This is the time between the wedding breakfast and the evening reception. This is really popular at Bordesley, as there is no accommodation for guests to go to. That means they can get a little bored after the meal waiting for the evening guests to arrive. Therefore having me go round and entertain to small groups at a time,  helps them pass the time. As ever it was finally time for me to perform my special Bride and Groom trick for the happy couple. Zoe’s face says it all.

It was a double bonus today as when I got there I realised Tom Humphries Photographer was the official photographer for the day. Having done numerous wedding fayres with Tom it was nice to finally do a wedding with him. also there was Kev from Music Wedding Video. I managed to sneak a guest appearance in his last video at Penfrell Hall and can’t wait to see what his vids of today will look like.

Staffordshire Magician at Dovecliffe Hall today for Claire and Jamie’s Special day

Dovecliffe is a special venue for me, in that my sister got married here many years ago. I was also best man at that wedded, and this was my first visit here since. I have to say they have made a lot of improvements at the venue, and its money well spent. 

Clair and Jamie found me online and I went to visit them at their address in Tamworth where they agreed to book me. They booked me for my Platinum package, which is mix and mingle magic during the drinks reception, and then table magic at the breakfast.

Sam and Rhiannon booked me after meeting me at a wedding fayre last  year at Lea Marston. They booked me for mix and mingle magic during the drinks reception and then table magic around the wedding breakfast. I mingled both on the terrace and the cooler bar as the official photographs were taken by the Fb Natalie Banner. This was also my second wedding with her this summer.It was also a nice surprise to see Dawn and Karl from Everthine Videography there keeping the Walsall end up!!

 Then it was down to the marquee for the wedding breakfast. I went round each table before perfuming my special tricks for the Happy Couple. Neither the guests or myself realised that some surprise singing waiters had been booked. One of them played the part of an “annoying ” venue manager very very well. He was genuinely winding guests up and getting reactions. Its a shame i had to leave before he revealed who he really was, because it would have been amazing to see.

It was an unusual wedding in that it was at their home in Lichfield. The family own a beautiful farm and had a marquee erected at the rear of the property.It also had the best garden ornaments  ever seen. Cast iron statues of the Predator and Alien! That demanded a selfie!!

The couple booked Owen to perform mix and mingle magic as guests arrived from the Church. This included a trick for the Bride that can be seen here, together with her reaction!

Then it was table magic around the wedding breakfast. Finally it was some special tricks for the happy couple at the top table.

On hand to capture the day was the amazing Wedding Photographer Faye Ford Photography. Ive had the privilege of sharing a number of weddings with Faye over the years. Her photos of me are amongst my favourite ever!!

Staffordshire Magician Swinfen Hall

Staffordshire Magician Swinfen Hall

Staffordshire Magician Swinfen Hall. Today I was thrilled to be back at Swinfen Hall for Maddy and Joe’s Special day. The couple booked me after meeting me at a fair at the venue last year. Wedding Fayres are where I get a lot of my Wedding Bookings from. They are a perfect way the couple can  meet me in person. They can see my magic and I can help talk them through how I can improve their day.

They booked me for the lull between the wedding breakfast and the evening reception. This is a really popular booking. This can be a bit of a dead time at a wedding. Magic helps entertain the guests stops them getting bored.

As it was beautiful sunny evening the guests were out in the terrace. The is such a stunning spot at the venue. It overlooks the ornamental gardens and water features. Firstly I went around the various tables and the reactions you can see. Then it was time for the bride and groom tricks. Maddy is a magic fan and it shows above!!

I performed my special tricks for the happy couple quite early into the booking. It was extra fun, as they cam and sat at a very lively table. This meant the reactions were even better as everyone got involved. Despite bring a predominately Birmingham City fan attended wedding I had a great time.

Im honoured that I will be performing at the wedding of the owner of The Limes later in the year. The following month Ill be performing at his daughter and wedding coordinators birthday. Its a good sign that I’m doing ok when the owners ask you to do their events!!

Hogarths Magician Owen Strickland back at the venue today for Kate and Matt’s Special day.

The couple booked me having met me a the wedding fair at the Venue last year. One of the many advantages of being the Venues recommended supplier is that i can meet couples at the venue. It gives me 5 minutes to show them the kind of thing I can do at their wedding.

Staffordshire Magician at Sandon Hall

Staffordshire Magician at Sandon Hall

Staffordshire Magician at Sandon Hall today for Kirstie and Tom’s Wedding.

This was actually my first time at Sandon, and what a stunning venue it is. The entrance drive of around a mile is impressive enough. Then the view of this stately hime really hits you as you approach

They had seen me at a previous wedding and it was a lovey surprise to see Claire at the wedding. I performed at her  and Marks wedding back in 2016 at Aston Marina. This was one of my first bookings at Aston Marina, where I am now the recommended supplier. Like I said to her at this wedding, I partly have her to thank for that !

Staffordshire Magician at Sandon Hall Staffordshire Magician at Sandon Hall Staffordshire Magician at Sandon Hall

Kirstie and Tom booked to perform for the lull after the breakfast and before the evening guests arrived. However the delays meant it became more of just performing at the evening reception. Not a problem at all as this was my final booking of the day. Therefore i went between the orangery and main reception room performing for all the guests. As ever I then performed my special tricks for the bride and groom. These can be seen above

Staffordshire Magician at Somerford Hall

Staffordshire Magician at Somerford Hall today. Owen Strickland was at Somerford Hall for the wedding of Lauren and Ryan.  

The mother of the Bride booked me as a surprise for the happy couple. This meant my surprise waiter appearance again. Thsi is a great idea where I approach the couple after the ceremony. I pretend to be a waiter and ask if they would like a complimentary drink.Whatever the Groom orders, I say ” we have run out sorry”. After a few different choices , and an annoyed groom, my notepad transforms into a pack of cards. It makes a brilliant surprise and I had contacted photographer Natasha Ince in the week to inform her.  Hopefully the photo from this moment will be epic.

After the surprise they booked me to perform for the drinks reception and the wedding breakfast. Despite heavy rain all morning, the sun came out literally as Lauren and Ryan came out of the ceremony. Therefore I did  mix and mingle outside the front of the venue where guests were congregated. There were some amazing reactions and everyone was a great laugh.

They then booked me to go and perform for the guests during the wedding breakfast. This meant performing after the speeches were concluded, so going round each table.

Finally , as ever, it was time to perform my speial tricks for the bride and groom at the Top Table. Laurens face on the pictures is classic !!
