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.
