- Do you want to ensure your wedding is truly unforgettable for all your guests? My unique magic is the perfect entertainment to get everyone laughing and smiling. Every wedding is different and I can always be flexible to fit in with the flow of your day. However, there are some points in the day that are best suited to having the biggest impact on you and your guests. BETWEEN THE CEREMONY AND THE WEDDING BREAKFAST This is the time of the day when you will be busiest, getting your photos taken and guests can be left at the drinks reception waiting around with rumbling stomachs. This makes it an ideal time for I to interact with your guests and get everyone laughing and keep their minds off the food. I perform to small groups of people to create a buzz and keep the energy going whilst you're away with the photographer. I perform astonishing tricks to get everyone smiling and this is a great way to bring together guests who might not know each other. BETWEEN THE WEDDING BREAKFAST AND THE EVENING RECEPTION Once the meal and the speeches are over, there can be a bit of a lull whilst the room is being turned around. If you have additional evening guests arriving then you want to make sure they arrive to an energised and happy crowd. I'm there to make sure everyone is excited for the party ahead. This perfectly enthuses those that have just arrived and also fills the "down-time" whilst the party room is being set up. If you would prefer something a little different, I can perform a magic show for all your guests as an alternative evening entertainment or as a host to introduce the band/DJ.

What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Planning the wedding of your dreams doesn't have to be an impossible task as long as you keep in mind one very simple thing… what you enjoy. It might sound obvious, but this is not just a wedding, it’s a celebration of you so make it a reflection of what you like.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I once performed at a wedding where the best man was the grooms nine year old son and his speech was just adorable.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I always speak with the couple over the phone to get a feel for what it is they are looking for then try to meet up with them in person to show them a bit of what I do and to talk through their plans for the day. After that we keep in touch so on the day they are completely relaxed.
What is your #1 top tip for keeping a crowd entertained?
Being flexible and knowing how to keep the energy high.
Where is the most memorable place you have performed?
Performing at Glastonbury Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and giving my own TED Talk are just some that stand out the most for me.
Have you had any interesting surprises at a wedding?
No wedding is ever the same so there is always some surprise. Watching the groom do a backflip during the first dance once was definitely a big surprise though!
What is your party trick?
Everything I do is a party trick ;-)
