Full Description
Hi there, and thanks for looking at my profile Having me perform magic can add so much to your already amazing special day. I can look after your guests at times that you may not be able to. This is particularly the case when straight after the ceremony, you have the all important (but sometimes lengthy)Happy Couple/family photos. I can can perform mix and mingle magic which stops them getting frustrated or bored waiting for the wedding breakfast. It also acts as a great “Ice Breaker” which means there are no awkward silences as the two families meet for possibly the first time. I can also be a surprise gift to your fiancé or other loved one, and act as a waiter when you come out of the ceremony. This provides a hilarious moment when they realise the notepad transforms into a deck of cards and I am in fact a magician. I can also perform table magic during the breakfast (in between courses)so that EVERY guest is guaranteed to see some amazing magic. There is also the lull period between the wedding breakfast and the evening , or the evening reception, which are also very popular bookings. It's also very likely that you will struggle to get round all your guests and have quality time with them all. A magician can be YOUR gift to the guests to keep them entertained at times that you can't be with them. In terms of price per guest, it normally works out at only a few pounds per head, which is cheaper than the cake or favours! I am thrilled to say I have won the Prestigious 2018 Wedding Industry Awards for “ Special Touch”. This follows on from winning the same competition in 2017 for Best Wedding Entertainment for the Midlands Region. (They amalgamated the two categories this year and called it Special Touch). I have also won the 2017 and 2018 Uk Best Of Awards for Best Entertainer I'm not the cheapest Magician on Bridebook by a long stretch, but why take a risk on THE most important and Special Day of your lives?

Owen is Your Guy
I contacted Owen at short notice with a small budget not expecting to be able to book him due to this. I was pleasantly surprised as he managed to fit me in and accommodate my budget. He was a surprise for our wedding, he arrived in good time and the guests had no idea. He mingled well with all the guests and made sure he played tricks on everyone at the reception. He also gets guests together who have never met before and gets them all talking and having a laugh which is always a bonus! He shocked everyone with his tricks - which were brilliant, and left you wondering how he did it! If you are thinking of booking a magician then Owen is your guy.

Thank you Owen, we truly feel blessed to of had you at our wedding reception.

Best Decision
We had Owen for our wedding after seeing him at a wedding fayre at Ansty hall and it was the best decision ever. All our guest loved his tricks and he got everyone chatting while we were have photos taken and then he did a couple of special tricks for us and we loved it all. Would really recommend him as it helps keeps the guest entertained and he really is good. Much love Sean and Beky
