 It was the first time in a couple of years I was back at The Bond Agency in Birmingham City Centre. This is such a lovely and unusual Venue, situated in the Industrial heartlands of the City Centre. It is beside the canal, which makes for some amazing and unique photos.

Today it was for the Wedding of Emily and Thomas. They had seen me online and booked me to perform during the “lull”. This is the period after the meal and before the evening reception. This is a great idea at Venues such as the Bond Agency, as there is no accommodation. This means the guests literally have no where to go and can sometimes get frustrated whilst waiting for the evening reception. Therefore I circulated the tables at guests sat there performing some close up magic.

I was not the only entertainment, as there was a Photo Booth form Save the Date Imagery and a band as well. It was nice to see Jo Spurr from Save the date Imagery after we did a Wedding around the same time last year at Westin Hall. She was helping out a trainee photographer to make sure he was capturing what he needed, which he seems to do effortlessly. We popped outside to do my “Special Tricks” for the Happy Couple, and you can see the reaction shots below.

Today I was thrilled to be back at New Hall in Sutton Coldfield. It was Jake and Staceys Special Day, and what an amazing wedding it was. I met Jake and Stacey at a wedding fair at Swinfen Hall in the Autumn and they booked there and then.

Firstly it was mix and mingle magic during the drinks reception that was partly n the bar area, and partly in the garden. Despite being December, it was a bright sunny day and temperatures were above average. All the guests were still in a Christamssy mood, and everyone was such fun.

It was then on to the wedding breakfast, where I performed at each and every table in the room. One table in particular was amazing fun, and the pictures are below. It was then the “special tricks” for the Happy Couple

Talking of pictures, the photographer on the day was the amazing Sally Wood Lamb. Ive performed a number of wedding over the years with Sally, and she’s simply one of the best!! Its why she is the recommended and “go to” photographer for New Hall, and her pictures speak for themselves!! Sally is doing a friends wedding this year after i recommended her, and we also have other weddings where we have both been booked

For more info about Sally’s amazing work take a look at her website here http://www.sallywoodphoto.co.uk

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.

There are also some amazing professional phots from Dan Round Photography. Its a while since Ive done a wedding with Dan, but after seeing these phots I can’t wait to do another!! You can see more of Dan’s fab work here https://www.danround.com

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.

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.

It was lovely autumn wedding today back at the beautiful Warwick House in South. I am very lucky to be the recommended supplier at Warwick House, which I take as a real honour 

Today it was Matt and Gemma’s wedding. I met them at one of the recommended supplier open evenings at the Venue. These are held a few times of year, and are perfect for meeting couple who have already booked at the venue.

They booked  me for an hour of the lull after the wedding breakfast, and an hour of the evening reception.

This is such a good idea as it stops the day guests getting wrestless whilst they wait for the event reception. Certain Venues don’t have accommodation,  so guests can be stuck with little to do after a heavy meal. It also then allows the evening guests to get some magic when they arrive. They are often a little on edge on arrival.This can follow not being involved on the day.Magic can help  them to get settled quickly. Plus this mix of two sessions means that every single guest at the wedding gets to see some amazing magic

As ever I had time amongst everything to do my Special Tricks for Gemma and Matt. Theses photos show the reactions that they got. It was a great wedding with both the happy couple and guests all being great fun.

Warwick House is one the premier venues in Warwickshire, and if you are planning to get marries and don’t have a venue yet, check it out here https://www.warwickhouse.co.uk

Today I was  back at my favourite venue, Alrewas Hayes. I make no secret that this is my absolute favourite venue. Today was a warm October day, and it was for Becki and Kurt, who had an amazing day. They booked me after seeing me at a taster evening at the venue last year. The venue does this for all brides and grooms booked for the next 12 months. 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

On hand to capture the photos on this amazing day was the equally amazing Sally Wood Lamb from Sally Wood Photography. I have done a number of weddings with Sally and she always manages to perfectly capture the reactions. Its surprising how many photographers dont!! However there is no worries with Sally, and she is someone I recommend to couples and friends. Her Website and epic work can be seen here http://www.sallywoodphoto.co.uk

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.

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.

As you can see Sarah and Matt really enjoyed it, and I had lovely feedback following the wedding.

 

It was my first time at Crown and Sandy’s, but hopefully not the last. Its a lovely venue perfect for a smaller wedding. The food looked amazing and theres a lovely garden area outside perfect for photos.The website for the venue is here http://www.thecrownandsandys.co.uk

Today was a  day and it was Liv and Rich who had an amazing day. They booked me after seeing me at a taster evening at the venue last year.

Birmingham Magician Owen Strickland at Festival Wedding Wedfest

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.

You can see more of Bens amazing work at his website here https://www.benfonesphotography.com/weddings/
