Wedding magician table magic

Wedding magician in Essex

If there’s one thing I’ve learnt from all the years I’ve spent performing magic at weddings, it’s that people in Essex know how to enjoy themselves!

There are plenty of stunning, high-end venues across Essex and I’ve performed wedding magic for happy couples in many of them, including Gaynes Park, Spains Hall, Leez Priory, Vaulty Manor and Blake Hall.

One of the great things about this is that I’ve been able to get to know the venues and the venue staff, which means I can help by suggesting what works best when it comes to keeping your guests entertained.

 

Drinks magic

One of my favourite times to perform magic at weddings is during one of the drinks receptions! These take place when there’s a lull in the activities, whether it’s just after the ceremony when the happy couple are having their official photographs taken or after the meal and before the evening reception.

Magic works brilliantly at either time because it injects a lot of laughter, conversation and energy into the event, which is usually much needed at these times. Wedding guests are a mix of family, friends and colleagues of both partners, and many of them don’t know each other at all.

By causing a stir with close-up magic, it’s far more likely that people will begin mixing and getting to know each other. It also means the atmosphere will get livelier, lifting the mood and helping people to enjoy themselves more.

Table magic

Another time to pull the metaphorical rabbit out of the hat when it comes to entertainment is at dinner. You may think that eating a delicious meal is entertaining enough, but that only works when your food is on a plate in front of you.

At large events with formal, sit-down meals, one table will always have to be served last, and if you’re on that table, it can be quite an ordeal watching everyone else tucking in, especially when the food smells so delicious. This is when a spot of table magic comes in handy.

I’ll always find out which order the tables are going to be served in, so I can begin the entertainment at the ones that have to wait the longest for their food. By entertaining them entertained, I’ll make sure they’re distracted so they don’t notice the wait and that they’ll also got lots to talk about when I’ve moved on to the next table. Excited chatter is much better than ‘hangry’ silence!

If you’re planning your Essex wedding, get in touch to talk about how I can help you make it even more magical.
