What is your most memorable wedding?
There are so many that I have enjoyed an incredible amount, I have to say that the first time I performed at The Italian Villa in Compton Acres was special.
It is a stunning place to tie the knot to start with, the couple looked beautiful and were so unbelievable nice.
It was an Anglo-French Wedding so half the crowd didn't speak English, and my French is conversational at best so it was terrific to see that magic really could transcend the language barrier as the reactions from the French contingent might even have been stronger than that of the English guests!

Have you had any interesting surprises at a wedding?
You never know what anyone is going to say, especially kids!
I have been asked to pretend to be a guest on several occasions before, on one occasion the bride hired me unknown to the Groom, I mingled with guests and went along the receiving line.
I took a petal from the Groom's buttonhole, lit it with a lighter and turned it into a sponge ball and then walked off - I don't think I've ever seen anyone so confused in my life, the bride was in stitches though!
What is your party trick?
I am the party trick/performing monkey!
