Yesterday I was booked for two events and they made a wonderful combination. In the afternoon I was at the wedding reception for Sophie and Jesse in Kingsclere. They arrived in an amazing vintage car and I spent a very enjoyable couple of hours entertaining their guests, while their photographer and videographer captured lots of the magical moments. I did a special bit of mind-reading at the end and then congratulated the happy couple on their marriage. At that point they had been married for less than three hours. I then said my goodbyes and drove down to Hayling Island to perform for Judi and Ray. But it wasn't their wedding. It was their 50th wedding anniversary! They had booked the Spinnaker Room at the Langstone Hotel, with a lovely view across the bay. It was the perfect venue for food, drink, music and magic. Judi and Ray made excellent hosts and the guests had a wonderful time. It was a very emotional evening, especially when Ray made a lovely speech and then sang a very special song to Judi. It was a pleasure to have been part of such a special evening.
As a wedding magican I have performed at hundreds of weddings and to see a couple who have just got married and another couple who have been together for half a century made for a very special day and lots of great memories.
