On Sunday the 12th March there is a wedding open day at Horsley Towers in East Horsley, Surrey. I will be there exhibiting and speaking with brides and grooms to be about how magic can be a great form of entertainment for your special day.
Here are three quick reasons to book a close up magician for your wedding day
- Magic is an interactive form of entertainment that involves your guests and creates wonderful talking points that can help bring two families together that do not know each other. The obligatory comments of 'how did he do that?' followed by the exploration of possible methods is an easy way to start a conversation.
- Magic is perfect for the moments during the day that not much is usually planned for. For example during the drinks reception and photos. Newlyweds have to leave their guests to go off and have photos as soon as the ceremony has ended. At this time music is usually played and a drink or two is had by everyone. After that, there can be a lull before the wedding breakfast, magic is a perfect way to keep the energy levels up high and make sure everyone is having fun!
- Above all, magic is MEMORABLE! At every gig I perform at someone usually more than one person) has a story of when they saw great magic. These memories are usually decades old and you can still they are still fresh in the minds of the owner of these memories. This is because magic is not just seen, it is experienced. It can invoke emotions and feelings that are powerful and stick with people. These memories and experiences are what I strive to give my spectators, that is the real power of magic. It is not about making someone feel like magic is real but giving someone a real feeling from your magic that counts.
So if you are around on Sunday, getting wed and wish to attend a Wedding Open Day, come along to Horsley Towers and come and say hi! I will be there all day!
