Magician in Warwickshire Owen Strickland was ay Warwick House today. Dean and Claire had their Special day at the stunning Warwick House.

The couple booked me as I am luckily a recommended supplier at the venue. This means every couple that books a wedding at the venue gets a goody bag. Inside this I put a flyer and a small gift for them, along with the other recommended suppliers.

Dean booked me to perform mix and mingle magic. This was in the garden area after the ceremony and before the Wedding Breakfast. Thankfully it was a scorching hot day and the weather didn’t get in the way. Photographer Marc Osbourne was on hand to capture the photos and managed to get some of me as I worked my way around the garden.

As the proceeding were going straight into speeches when they sat down for the meal, I took the opportunity to do my special bride and groom trick for them in the sun. Marc was on the roof by this point to take some group shots, so hopefully Ill have an “aerial shot” to show for it.

First the couple booked me for mix and mingle magic after the ceremony. A nice change for this wedding though. They wanted guests to stay down at the beautiful island area where the ceremony takes place. Unbelievable I had never been down to the island, as usually everyone returns to the hotel. However I have really missed out, because its beautiful down there.This meant I was going round the Island area and performing for the guests in small groups. .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. Because Andrea and Jake booked my Platinum Package, the fact that they did speeches before the food was served made no difference. I dipped out f the room as they happened, before returning to do the tables.

Finally it was my trade mark special tricks for the bride and groom.

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.

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.

 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.

Alrewas Hayes Magician Owen Strickland back at his favourite venue, Alrewas Hayes. I make no secret that Alrewas Hayes is my favourite venue. 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. Indeed one of my favourite photos from last year was Liv at the taster evening. 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 to them.

Liv and Rich were great fun both on the taster evening and on their special day. There was not a cloud in the sky. They booked me for my Platinum package.First it was Mix and Mingle magic in the beautiful garden. Secondly it was table magic around the breakfast, including my special tricks for the happy couple. The photographer didn’t wish to photograph me when I performed for them both. Thankfully I always get a guest to do this for the happy couple, so they had the great reaction shots you can see.
