Full Description
  • I have performed magic at many weddings across the UK and abroad for almost 20 years ( I know, I don't look old enough right?), leaving guests amazed and with lasting memories of a very special day. Though how I present my tricks can be tailored to your individual demands, I tend to showcase them in a contemporary style using everyday items such as cards, coins, dice and bank notes. I of course bring my own unique sense of humour too! I use my magic as a vehicle to entertain your guests as they are enjoying their drinks reception or between courses at the wedding breakfast, the common ground they have after experiencing me perform miracles for their small group gives them great opportunity to chat and share your special day together whilst I move on to amaze another small group. I keep my performances lively without becoming too intrusive on the main event but creating enough atmosphere to encourage your guests to really get involved and have a great time. There's an art to creating a buzz in the room that isn't just about performing tricks which I have perfected in my 22 years as a performer at weddings, dinners and gala events. If you'd like to know more, I'm more than happy to meet up for a pre-wedding consultation to share my knowledge of the hundreds of weddings I've been a part of how we can make yours that little bit more unique and memorable for all of those involved. I'm nothing if not honest and will recommend the best entertainment options for you, whether it involves my services or not, for example, if you think your day guests are getting enough, magic at the start of the evening do goes down really well but I wouldn't suggest starting it after about 21:00 when the DJ or band want to get into full swing. The first step is to get in touch and I'll happily point you in the right direction for what suits you, your guests and your special day the best. Matt

    Hi, Thanks for your interest in my profile and considering magic at your wedding, it always goes down as one of the highlights of every wedding I perform at so I look forward to hearing from you and discussing how we can add that little bit of extra magic to your special day.

FAQ
(10)
What is your most memorable wedding?
Verona, Italy in September this year, gorgeous venue and the most lovely bride and groom, I always perform in rolled up sleeves and a waistcoat to avoid the "it's up your sleeve" issue but even with no jacket, this was a hot hot day and I was melting by the end of it, amazing to be part of it though.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Contemporary Entertaining Engaging Interactive Amazing
What about your business are you most proud of?
Repeat bookings and the feedback I receive, once I've performed at one event for somebody, they seem to want me back for any other events they have, I guess I'm really proud of that as it shows I must be doing something right.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Get in early with your bookings, the best entertainers get booked up first so try and snap them up for your ideal time as soon as you can.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I performed at a wedding for a very musical couple, all of the tables were named after musicals and the seating plan was all play bills with the cast members being the people sat at that table, it was amazingly well done.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I like to have a chat about when magic would have the best impact on their day, see what would be their ideal and offer my knowledge to highlight that. We generally go from there.
What is your #1 top tip for keeping a crowd entertained?
Well that's quite complex, I started learning my craft as a street entertainer at the age of 14, I moved on from that by the age of 18 but day after day of performing for people is the only way to learn.
Where is the most memorable place you have performed?
Onboard the HMS Invincible for HRH Prince Charles
Have you had any interesting surprises at a wedding?
It's my job to create them so thousands :-)
What is your party trick?
Again, I have thousands but I think my favourite would be catching a spectator's card in my mouth
