It was great to be back at New Hall again for the wedding of Jake and Stacey. I met them both at a wedding fair at Swinfen Hall, where they booked me on the spot.




First it was mix and mingle magic after the ceremony, followed by table magic during the meal. This is the most popular booking I do, for two reasons. Firstly its a great ice breaker for the two sets of guests, because a to of them will not have met before. It means that whilst Jake and Stacey were having the all important photographs taken, the guests were entertained and didn’t get bored or anxious.

Similarly, the same thing can happen during the wedding breakfast. The “perfect” table plan does not exist, meaning people will normally end up sitting with people they don’t know. Magic is the perfect thing to not only entertain the guest between courses, but become a talking point as well.

During the table magic it was time for my special Bride and Groom tricks, and the photographs capture these wonderfully.

Talking of photographs, the reason the photos from this wedding are so amazing is quite simple. There was an amazing photographer in Sally Wood Photography. Ive done many weddings with Sally over the years, and her work is always outstanding. She ( as the pictures will testify) always captures the reaction of Brides/Grooms/Guests perfectly. This is quite an art, and its amazing how many photographers fail to capture this. Sally never fails, and this is why she is the recommended photographer at New Hall.
