When is the best time to hire a magician at your wedding?

The following are some ideas for when a close up magician can really enhance your wedding reception:

Wedding magician option 1: Entertaining guests during the photo period. If you have a longish drinks reception/photo period then a close up magician can really help. Rob interacts with the guests who aren't involved in the photos. If you have a summer wedding and are planning on drinks and canap├ęs outside then magic is a fun and novel idea.

Wedding magician option 2: Performing table magic during the wedding breakfast. Rob moves from table to table performing a short show for each group including one or two special tricks for the top table. This is a very popular choice and can be combined with option 1.

Wedding magician option 3: Evening reception. If you are looking for some alternative evening entertainment then a close up magician is perfect. The only time it doesn't work is if you are planning on having a loud DJ at the same time. Close up magic relies on interaction and your guests need to hear what the magician is saying to fully appreciate what is going on!

Wedding Close up Magician


ImgDear Rob,

Thank you once again for your starring contribution to our wedding day. On your wedding day, of all days, it is most important to know that the entertainment of your guests is in the hands of a truly talented professional: Not only is your work peerless, but your commitment and professionalism meant that we could relax in the confidence that all would go smoothly and that our guests would be just as impressed as we were when we saw you at one of your public events earlier in the year.

From the moment I contacted you to make the booking, you have been a delight to deal with, answering all queries promptly and courteously - a tremendous help when planning an occasion as special as a wedding!

Your performance was a main topic of conversation among our thoroughly entertained (and puzzled!) guests for the rest of the evening. I would certainly recommend you to anyone thinking of booking a magician for their event as a consummate professional and one of the most talented contemporary exponents of your art.

Wishing you every success,

Louise Urch

Couples planning their wedding often consider many different entertainment options - as well as the traditional DJ, people consider harpists and string quartets to caricaturists and for a chocolate fountain.

Rob James has been performing table top magic at weddings for a few years, working at up to 60 wedding receptions in a year!
