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.

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!!

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.

As Lindzey and Ashely went to get some photographs taken in the first sunshine of the day, I was left to entertain the guests. I went round the tables and performed for everyone at the wedding. As the event guests arrived i also entertained them at the bar area.

The photos show a couple of examples of me performing for the guests. It was then time for me to perform my special tricks for the bride and groom which went down well, as ever

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.

Then it was on to table magic in and around the courses of the wedding breakfast. It enabled me to get some great photos and work alongside David Causon Photography.As you can see below David takes some wonderful photos, and had a lovely unobtrusive style with the guests on the day.

 

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
