Birmingham Magician Owen Strickland at Pendrell Hall

Birmingham Magician Owen Strickland at Pendrell Hall

 

Birmingham Magician Owen Strickland at Pendrell Hall over Christmas for Jon and Claire’s Wedding.

Pendrell Hall is such an amazing venue at any time of the year, but even more so at Christmas. The dark wooden floors and real Christmas trees and fire make it such a warm and cosy feel. 

Jon and Claire only booked me a month or so their Special Day. They actually only got engaged in August, so it was a very speedily process until their actual Day. Everyone was in such a festive mood from the off, and it was a unusually mild day for mid December

Firstly I did mix and mingle magic around the guests in the bar and drawing room areas. This is such a good ice breaker for the two sets of guests.Many had not met before so it was a great way to introduce them to each other.

Then it was onto table magic around the wedding breakfast. I visited every table in the room which meant that every single guest got to see some amazing magic. finally it was then my well renowned special tricks for the Bride and Groom. The are what the photographs are above. As ever, they got a great reception and reactions.

Just to prove what a small word it is, about two weeks after the wedding i was in a pub in the Clent Hills on a Sunday afternoon, and happened to bump into the Happy Couple. a crazy coincidence!

For more information about the amazing Pendrell Hall take a look a their website here https://pendrellhall-venue.co.uk. It prides itself that they are available every single day for weddings, and do not charge a corkage should you wish to supply your own wine.

Birmingham Corporate Magician Owen Strickland Christmas Season

Birmingham Corporate Magician Owen Strickland Christmas Season

This Christmas has seen my busiest ever month. It has topped off a really successful year for me. I am so grateful to all the lovely clients who have booked me this last year.

 

The Christmas season saw me literally tour The Midlands for a range of corporate events, and a couple of weddings. The weddings i will cover in a separate blog post, but this will mention the Corporate events.

First it was off to Ardencote for the Faset AGM. I not only performed close up pre dinner, but also did a 10 minute stand up piece on stage. The went down really well and finished dinner off in style. The following day it was off to East Midlands airport for a 30 year anniversary for a company. This was with my great friend and amazing magcian Chris Congreave.

Then it was back down to Warwickshire for the PSSA Awards, followed by a Xmas party near Worcester.

As December progressed it was a repeat booking at Hinckley Island and again with Chris Congreave.

New Hall was next on the list, with BMW Sytner Group being the Clients. Then it was off up to Knutsford for Crawford Healthcare at the beautiful Mere Golf and Spa Hotel.

A last minute booking for Birmingham University Medical School was followed by a law forms Christmas Meal at Piccolinos. Then my only nightclub booking at Nuvo, before mu usual booking at the ICC for JDB events. This is usually the largest gig of the year, and JDB did an amazing job decorating the room in New York style.

Birmingham Corporate Magician Owen Strickland was at Park Regis Sky Bar for Saviils Estate Agents, before a couple of weddings.Finally my usual New Years Eve event at Woodside in Kenilworth. Some of these are pictured above.I also even managed to perform for Aston Villa Legend Gordon “Sid” Cowans, which was a particular highlight.

It would be remiss of me not to say that JDB are an amazing events company and their website can be seen here https://www.jdb-events.co.uk.

Alrewas Hayes Magician Owen Strickland

Alrewas Hayes Magician Owen Strickland

Alrewas Hayes Magician Owen Strickland back at his favourite Venue for John and Amelias Autumn Wedding.

I first met Jon and Amelia at The Alrewas Hayes Wedding Fayre earlier in the year. After meeting me they booked me for their special day in October. 

They booked me for the “lull” period between the wedding breakfast and the evening reception. This is a really popular package and particularly at Alrewas. This is because at venues where there is not a lot of accommodation, such as Alrewas, most guests are not staying overnight. This means that after the wedding breakfast, they are stuck in the various rooms with no where to go. In the summer this can mean a nice sit outside in the sun, but in the darker Autum months they are literally stuck with no where to go. This is such a good time to have me perform, as it keeps the energy levels high as guests wait for the evil reception to start.

I went between the dining area where some guests were, and the bar area and performed mix and mingle magic to the guests as they relaxed. Every was such fun and as it was a mild night, even a few ventured outside. 

It was then time to perform my special tricks for John and Amelia, leaving them with some keepsakes to remember me being at their Wedding.

On hand to capture some of these moments was my good friend Jon Thorne, one of the best photographers around. I’ve known Jon for many years and actually first met him at Alrewas. A nicer man you could not wish to meet, and his photographs above speak for themselves. The first two are from John and Amelias day, and the other two are from the taster evening earlier in the year. To see more of Jon’s work or to contact him, please take a look at his website here https://www.thorneweddingphotography.co.uk

I make no secret that Alrewas Hayes is my favourite Venue. The owners Toby and Bonnie do an amazing job, and really care about every single Couple that marry their. The accommodation is stunning, with no two of the rooms looking the same. There is a weeding fairy there on March 17th, and i cannot recommend a visit highly enough. The website for Alrewas is here https://alrewashayes.com

Birmingham Magician Owen Strickland-It was wonderful to be back at Moxhull Hall for the wedding of Dave and Vanessa. Vanessa had originally met me at a wedding fair at Swinfen Hall, and decided to book. A quick visit to their home to meet Dave, and it was all confirmed.

The day, as most days this summer, was a scorcher! 

 

First it was mix and mingle magic around the stunning gardens of Moxhull. Dave and Vanessa were getting their all important photographs taken, and Peter Blanchflower was on hand to take them. As you can see from teh photos above, Peter always manages to capture teh exact moments of reaction. He is one of the most respected photographers across the region.For more info about Peters work you can see his website here http://www.peterblanchflower.co.uk

Next it was table magic during the wedding breakfast. Each table had a number of tricks before finally performing my special tricks for the Bride and Groom. As you can see from Vanessas’s reaction, they loved it.

Staffordshire Magician Owen Strickland at Schoolhouse

Staffordshire Magician Owen Strickland at Schoolhouse

Staffordshire Magician Owen Strickland at Schoolhouse again for Connell and Gemma Special Day. The couple had booked me at a Wedding Fayre the previous year. They booked me for the lull between the wedding breakfast and the evening. This is a really popular booking, especially if there is no accommodation at the venue. This is the case at The Schoolhouse, so there is a natural lull between the breakfast and evening.

I went around the tables as guests were still sitting, and also visited those who had ventured outside. It was, as ever this summer, a glorious sunny day. Tis showed The Schoolhouse in all its splendour. h

Debbie and Mark from Priory Photography were on hand to capture the reactions of the guests as I circulated. As you can see from the photos they managed to get the amazing reactions perfectly. I finished off by doing my special Bride and Groom tricks for Connell and Gemma. You can see Debbie and Marks work at their website here http://www.priory-photodesign.co.uk

I had these lovely words form Connell after the wedding “Top Magician. Owen performed at our wedding and wowed all of the guests, his tricks take you completely by surprise and you have no idea how they’ve been done”

The Schoolhouse

The Schoolhouse is such a lovely venue, situated between Lichfield and Tamworth at Weeford. Im very lucky to be a recommended supplier at the venue. I am booked to do the Wedding Coordinators’s sons wedding there next year. As well as a very popular Wedding Venue, it also is an outstanding restaurant as well. I have eaten there many times so can give it my personal thumbs up. For Weddings it has a lovely permanent Marquee at the rear of the building with a Sun terrace next to it. It has amazing views over the stream and bridge in the fields below. These make an amazing photo setting.

Mill Barns Magic with Owen Strickland

Mill Barns Magic with Owen Strickland

Mill Barns Magic with Owen Strickland. There is a brand new wedding venue that everyone in the idustry that all suppliers have even talking about. Its the Mill Barn in Alveley, near Stourbridge. I was lucky enough to go twice in the summer to this venue and my thought? STUNNING.

Gemma and Chris

My first visit was for Gemma and Chris. They had booked via my website having seen the large numbers of wedding I do. I was nice and early and had chance to take in this stung venue. I performed mix and mingle magic after the ceremony and then table magic during the meal. On hand to capture some amazing phots were the Dignums. I had never worked with these guys before, but it was soon clear they knew what they were doing and more! You can see the photos above and get in contact with them via their website here https://thedignums.com

Kim and Oli

My second visit was for the Special day of Kim and Oli. Another gorgeous Summers day saw the reception on at the same time as the England World Cup match with Sweden. As a result the roads were very quiet on the way, which is always a bonus.

The photographer that day was Nick Brighman who I see regularly. He took these great photos and his website is https://www.nickbrightmanphotography.co.uk

The Mill Barns Alveley

Wow what a venue, that has to be seen to be believed. Two huge timber wings, and a large timber terrace overlooking a large pod in between. As I drove up the driveway i just thought “Wow”.

It has been designed as a brand new Wedding Venue from the ground up, so is ultra modern. The owners are also the owners of Pendrell Hall where I do a lot of weddings. They know this bunnies inside out and do weddings 7 days a week. It is easy to see why this venue is fully booked for years at weekends. The website for this beauty is https://themillbarns-venue.co.uk/exclusive-use-wedding-venue/
