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!!

Michelle and Chas booked me after meeting me at an open day at the Venue earlier in the year.

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.

First the couple booked me for mix and mingle magic after the ceremony. This meant going round the terrace area and performing for the guests in small groups. the photos above tell the story better than words can.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.

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

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 !

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 !!

Staffordshire Magician at Aston Marina today for Lindzey and Ashley’s evening reception. 

It had been a day of rain but the changed to sunshine as I arrived for the evening reception. Lindzey and Ashley booked me having seen me at a taster evening at the venue earlier in the year. This is where the room is set as for a wedding and they can taste the various food courses. It’s an ideal opportunity for me to go around the tables and perform for the couples and their families. Its exactly how a wedding breakfast is organised, so couples can see what I can add to a wedding.

Birmingham Magician at Moxhull Hall today for the amazing wedding of Becki and John. 

With what has been an awful week weather wise, the weather God’s were kind to Becki and John today and the rain stopped to allow an outdoor wedding.

Unusually for me,I went to the actual ceremony. I never have been to this before at Moxhull, and its a beautiful secret garden. 

Firstly Becky booked me for mix and mingle magic for the guests as soon as the ceremony was over. I mingled around the garden area whilst the amazing Sally Wood Photography did her thing, and performed magic for all the guests. This was the second wedding n a week alongside Sally, who is truly one of the best photographers in the country. Her images speak for themselves.

Worcestershire Magician at Bordesley Park today for Nikki and John’s Wedding.

It was looking like a rainy day early doors, but it soon brightened up and what a day it turned to be. Nikki and John had met me at one of the open Days during the winter at the Venue. These days are perfect for Couples to both look at the wonderful venue, bit also see the recommended suppliers. Im lucky that I have been the recommended magician at Bordesley for a good few years now, and appear in the Venue’s brochure.

The guests at the wedding were a younger bunch, and clearly it would be a fun wedding from the off.

First off, Nikki and John booked me to perform Mix and mingle magic after the ceremony. This is the perfect time for a magician as I can walk around the guests as they meet for the first time, and help break the ice. It provides entertainment as the couple have the all important photographs taken.

Finally it was my signature Special tricks for the Happy Couple before I left. These are again captured brilliantly by Dave Causon stills from the video I had taken of me reframing them

Wedding Magician at Pendrell Hall. Today it was my first visit of the year ro Pendrell Hall for Matt and Nicola’s Special Day. Nicola booked me from seeing me perform at Moor Hall a number of times. She works there, as does Matt.  

Firstly,Nicola booked me for mix and mingle magic after the ceremony which was at a nearby church. This meant guests would arrive over a period of time, meaning magic meant that the early arrivers didn’t get bored. I moved around the group ,in the stunning gardens and performed close up magic.I even managed to perform for Aston Villa’s latest signing, a young lad who performed his professional fore earlier that day!! 

One of the best photographers in the country, Sally Wood Lamb was the photographer, so I continued performing as she was talking the all important happy couple photographs.I have zero doubt these will be amazing, because they ALWAYS are with Sally.
