It was a windy but Sunny day at Crown and Sandys in Worcestershire today. Sarah and Matt had found me online and having had a good look around the weisite, decided to book. It had come on the back of a recommendation of one of the guests who had seen me before at another wedding.

They booked me for my Platinum package, which is by far the most popular package I do. Firstly it was mix and mingle magic around the guest as soon as the ceremony was over. 

This is a get ice breaker for the two sides of guests, as many will not have met before. It means i can involve everybody and provide a talking point, so guests quickly get to know each other. As yo can see there were some amazing reactions from the guests.

Having done that it was time to then work the tables around the wedding breakfast. I dont perform while guest eat, as they should very much be allowed to enjoy the food in peace. However I work the tables as guest sit down and in between courses. It means that every single guest gets to see me perform, and most like to get involved in the magic.

It was then onto my Special Tricks for the Happy Couple. These are tricks that I only d for the Bride and groom, and provide not only great reaction phots, but mementoes for them to keep.

It shows the room in all its splendour, and allows the couples to taste the various food options. Its always a great night and I am very privileged to be invited to them.

Liv and Rich were great fun both on the taster evening and on their special day. There was not a cloud in the sky. They booked me for my Platinum package.First it was Mix and Mingle magic in the beautiful garden. Secondly it was table magic around the breakfast, including my special tricks for the happy couple. The photographer didn’t wish to photograph me when I performed for them both. Thankfully I always get a guest to do this for the happy couple, so they had the great reaction shots you can see.

Birmingham Magician Owen Strickland at Festival Wedding Wedfest. A first for me in Shropshire today;- a festival wedding. I was booked for the post ceremony drinks reception at http://www.morrellswoodfarm.co.uk .Firstly it was mix and mingle with the guests, then some tricks for Andrew and Angela.

Two amazing Tips were erected.One for guest to have drinks and food, and the other for the band to be playing in. Andrew, the groom, is in a band, so it was only right that they play a set to wow everyone!

There was an American Bus to serve food, and a well stocked drinks bar! The weather had been unsettled early in the day, but by the time I got there it was blue skies and quite warm. Perfect English evening weather.

A big bonus for me is that the amazing Ben Fones Photographer was there to capture the day. Ben is an amazing photographer, there really is no better around. It says it all that two of my business cards have photos that Ben took on them. There are also numerous featured in showreels/flyers etc. He is a magicians dream in that he just knows how to capture the reactions perfectly.

5 Tips to Enhance Your Event

5 Tips to Enhance Your Event

 

Whether you’re planning a corporate event, getting married, or just throwing a party for the hell of it, there’s a lot that goes into planning your party.

Once you’ve got the basics planned, it’s time to think about how you can take your event from “just another party” to “OMG how good was that?”

Here’s a look at five ways you can enhance your event.

1.   Make it Magic!

Magic is always exhilarating to watch. Whether you have a table magician who casually takes part in your event or have a full on performance as the centrepiece entertainment of your party, a magician is sure to get people talking, scratching their heads, and asking what just happened.It will also provide you with some amazing reaction shots, that will last long after the day has ended 

The beauty of booking a magician is that you don’t just get the magic show element, but the camaraderie with guests and additional performance elements, such as comedy, too.

2.   Surprise with Fireworks

Fireworks are the ideal addition to a party. The versatility and fun they give you means they’re always an added dimension to any party.

Fireworks can be used at the beginning of the party as a way to greet arriving guests. They can be used for a traditional grand finale at the end of the night, or you can even use indoor fireworks, from small sparklers to full on indoor pyro, if you’re cutting a cake, giving out awards, or even just to accompany the DJ or live band’s performance.

Which brings us nicely onto our next tip…

3.   Choose Live Music

Every event needs music – it helps to create atmosphere and entertain your guests even when there’s nothing special taking place at that moment.

While it’s rather easy to hook your smartphone up to a speaker and stream your playlist these days, having live music is always a much better idea. Live musicians can enhance the mood and pick up on the subtle signals your guests might be sending. For example, a great band is instantly able to play more upbeat songs if the mood seems to be dying down or slow it down if the situation calls for it.

A great live band really can make your event!

4.   Get Guests Sharing

It’s not for everyone, but it’s hard to deny that social media is a big part of our lives as well as the events we attend. The use of hashtags at events is widely encouraged and one fun way to get people sharing more is to have a social media wall at your event. This is a big digital display that’s updating with the tweets and posts people are sending using different platforms. It can work well in a big event and get everyone involved in the different things happening around the venue!

If you do this, just be sure to manage it well – you might want social engagement but you also want to ensure the people there are actually “present” at the event and not just on their phones!

5.   Opt for Smart Lighting

Finally, you can enhance your event with the use of smart lighting, sometimes referred to as intelligent lighting. These are, essentially, solutions allowing your lighting to respond and change according to different things. For example, you could use lights to display a seating chart on a big wall and then have it transformed into a wall of stars by the end of the night. Your smart lights could also follow the dancers on the dance floor and so on. The options are endless and smart lighting will add to the atmosphere of your event or party – it’s also an affordable way to decorate without having to buy physical décor items!

The above five tips will help you transform your event and enhance the mood of your occasion, whatever the reason for your party!

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.

I was back at the amazing Warwick House today for Gordon and Stacey’s wedding. I was booked by them after a series of Facebook Ad’s. Today was as this summer continues to be-lovely and Sunny. Perfect weather for a wedding!

Gordon and Stacey booked me me for a very popular package, the “lull” . This is the period of time after the Wedding Breakfast and prior to the evening reception. This works particularly well at a Venue Such as Warwick House. As there is only limited accommodation at the venue, guests have nowhere to go. Thus they can often get frustrated and bored in the gap between the breakfast and the evening. Having me to perform magic in this session allieviates the boredom.

 

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 frost wedding. I am also no putting a small gift in the goody bag that prospective brides and grooms get. I will also be at the open evenings that they hold a few times a year. To have a better look at the venue this is the websitehttps://www.warwickhouse.co.uk
