I then drove over to New Malden for Julia's party and, as a contrast to being in a stately home, this was being held in her back garden. Luckily the weather was good and everyone was in the mood for some fun. I even had a little friendly competition with an amateur magician who was there, although after he'd said "How did you do THAT?" a few times he decided to leave the magic to me from then on.
The next wedding was at the Crown Hotel in Winchester. I arrived early, had a quick coffee and then headed into Roy and Claudine's wedding reception. There was a great mixture of guests and one particular table that Roy warned me "could be a bit of a handful". I headed over to them, did a bit of magic and was then asked if I knew any hypnosis. I asked why and a lady called Jackie said that she had been hypnotised by Paul McKenna. Everyone else was a bit sceptical about this so I showed them how you can use words and the power of suggestion to make people do unexpected things. Jackie was a great subject and everyone else was amazed!
Later in the weekend I headed to Beckenham to do magic at Kelly and Lee's wedding reception. There was a great party atmosphere and everyone was ready to have a good time. Alongside the magic there was some great food and drink, a DJ, a bouncy castle and plenty of karaoke! Kelly herself has an amazing voice and seeing her sing note perfect numbers in her wedding dress was something very special. There were a number of youngsters at this reception so I called on my balloon modelling skills to keep them amused. All-in-all an excellent afternoon of fun, laughter and magic.
