Over the last few weeks I've been exhibiting at a lot of wedding fairs. It's a great way to demonstrate my wedding magic to couples who may be looking for some wedding entertainment. It's also a great way to meet other wedding suppliers and sometimes you come across someone who really stands out. Here are two people who I've met recently who offer something very special and both come highly recommended.
JD - The Soul Machine
I met JD at the Reading Hilton wedding fair. He sang a few songs during the day and the quality of his singing was undeniable. He also knows how to work the crowd and get everyone in a party mood. An excellent singer and fantastic entertainer.

Joby Dove - Wedding Stationery
I met Joby (cool name!) at the Northcote House wedding fair. He's a very artistic and creative guy who has turned his hand to producing wedding stationery, but with an unusual twist! Most wedding invites are very similar - white with pink hearts and maybe a few frills around the edge - but Joby's are more like this...
He can produce customised artwork for your wedding at a very reasonable price. There are lots of examples of his work on his website, take a look and I'm sure you'll be impressed.

December is always a very busy month for magic - nothing beats having a magician at your Christmas party! I've already got 20 parties booked in and the only dates that are still available are Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. I'm also very pleased to be back doing magic for everyone at the Coppid Beech hotel on Christmas Day itself. It's going to be a hectic month!
On Saturday I performed at three events, including the wedding of Molly and Aaron at Wokefield Park. It was a lot of fun and I spent a couple of hours entertaining and amazing guests during the reception. There were two photographers there and a videographer who I kept an eye on (I didn't want him to film the magic too closely and then use rewind, slow motion and freeze-frame to work out how I do some of it!)
Just before I had to leave the guests took their places for the wedding breakfast, Molly and Aaron made their big entrance and I had the chance to do a couple of tricks for them at the top table. Often the bride and groom miss the magic as they are busy having all of the wedding photos done, but I was keen to make sure Molly experienced some of my mind reading. There wasn't much time before the speeches so I thought I'd do something really quick and really astonishing. I asked Molly and Aaron to both think of a word. I then told them what those words were! A great note to end on and a lovely way to end my performance.
Many thanks to Molly and Aaron and all the best for your future together.
