The last few months has seen something that we have not seen before in our lifetime. Absolutely unprecedented, and something I hope never to see again! 

I feel really sorry for the poor Brides and Grooms who have had to either postpone of cancel their weddings from this summer. At the time of writing I’ve managed to reschedule round 50 2020 weddings to 2021/2022. I can only imagine how awful this myst be for my couples. BUT, the end of it all is hopefully now in sight, so I thought I’d mention what Ive been doing to try and help.

Any couples that need to move their wedding day, I have moved free of charge. I have also been honouring the price agreed, so 2021 prices have not kicked in for them at all. If I cannot do a new date ( as I’m already booked), I have been refunding deposits in full. For me, its the only fair thing to do. I do not wish to gain a single penny if I’m not going to perform at the wedding.Thers also been the option to find another magician for them if they so wish. Ive passed a few on to trusted friends that cover bookings for me.

For later this year, if and when weddings start again, there may well be some social distancing involved still. If thats the case, its not a problem at all. For each wedding, there will be enough hand sanitiser that each guest, if they would like some magic, can sanitise before and after the trick. I will also have disposable gloves should they wish. If they don’t wish to handle a playing card, for example, thats also fine. I will simply write their name on it for them. For other tricks i will do effects where they don’t physically have to touch anything and can stay 2 meters away. 

If the law changes to say masks are required in public, I will of course wear one. If the law doesn’t require it, but the Couple would prefer it, that is also fine. I will do anything I can to easy an concerns , whilst still making the magical experience EPIC!

I even have an option for couples to buy masks/hand sanitiser in bulk should anyone need it. A family member can provide them.

These are some lovely reviews Ive had during the Virus to say how Ive helped couples so far

Calderfields Magician Owen Strickland was back at the venue today for Sophie and Ashley’s evening reception.

The couple booked me after meeting me at the venue’s Wedding Fayre earlier in the year. The twice yearly wedding fayre is always a popular one, and gives couples the chance to see both the venue, and recommeded suppliers.

Sophie and Ashley booked me to perform mix and mingle magic during the evening reception. The party was already in full swing by the time i arrived, and it was a lively one! I visited the tables in the room, and also dod some mix and mingle at the bar. I also did my special tricks for Sophie and Ashley and the photos speak for themselves 🙂

Its by far the premier venue in Walsall, and has so much to offer. There are now 16 log cabins for guest to stay in, that line the 18th Fairway, offering amazing views. Dan, Shannon and the team are all great and look after guests brilliantly. It also has an amazing carver on a Sunday that you don’t want to miss!!

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. The website for Alrewas is here https://alrewashayes.com
