Weddings are great fun. There’s romance, booze and pretty dresses! But, they can be long days and this is where you need the perfect wedding entertainment in the form of a Close Up Wedding Magician. Hiring a quality entertainer can go some way to preventing those dreaded lulls at your wedding.


When to introduce your Manchester Wedding Magician:


The Drinks Reception: Whilst the Bride and Groom are having their photos taken, this is a great time to introduce a little fun to the proceedings. Let me mix with your guests bringing fun, amazement and laughs to the party. Not only am I the perfect icebreaker but I’ll also provide amazing opportunities for your wedding photographer to capture.


The Evening Reception: After the speeches and wedding breakfast is another spot where your guests will appreciate a little entertainment. Have me work my magic around your existing guests providing a much-needed pick-me-up PLUS I’ll generate a party atmosphere for your evening guests.
