A strolling magician is a great way of providing informal entertainment for guests. I can be flexible, versatile I don't need any special equipment and I can mingle with guests at tables or standing both indoors or outside (weather permitting). I am very low maintenance and once I start you don't have to worry as I just continue to perform for all the guests. The best times for me to to perform are during the photograph session or evening party and sometimes after the wedding breakfast although most people have a break after the meal. My props are small and all carried on me so I don't require tables or a stage as I perform close-up to people and seeing magic in real life is usually quite an amazing experience. It's better than seeing it on the TV! I've been performing magic at weddings and parties for 20 years so can vouch for its effectiveness at the right times. I know when to perform what to perform and how to perform for all ages. 20 years worth of experience is built in. Wedding days have times when guests need an entertaining distraction for a while and it helps to break the ice for people who have never met by providing a talking point and a lively atmosphere. I'm a member of the Magic Circle in London the club for the best magicians in the country and have won numerous competitions and awards for performing close-up magic. Rest assured I will look right and provide a great time for your special guests.
