Popular times to use wedding magic
While guests arrive for the reception and during the photos
This can be a busy time for the bride and groom; but for your guests who may only be involved in one or two photos, there can be a lot of waiting. Mark mingles unobtrusively with your guests, breaking the ice and drawing them together. He performs interactive magic just inches away and even in their hands giving your guests a magical experience as close as they could possibly be, or from a distance, whichever they feel more comfortable with.
During the wedding breakfast
This happens at the table between courses and before the speeches. Each table will have the opportunity to see a 10-15 minute performance. This will ensure that all your guests will see some magic as the tables create individual audiences in a comfortable environment to watch the entertainment. It also brings an air of anticipation to the breakfast as Mark moves from table to table creating gasps, cheers, applause and laughter. You will hear your guests enjoy your wedding. Mark also performs a special show for the top table leaving the bride and groom with a unique souvenir of the occasion.
As the evening guests arrive to join the party
Once the wedding breakfast and speeches have finished – as guests relax after the meal – before the evening entertainment begins. This is also the time your evening guests will start to arrive and as they do will find themselves joining a group of people who have three things in common. They have been together for the day, now know each other and have the ceremony and speeches to talk about. Mark will again at this point become an icebreaker making the new guests feel welcome and introducing them to your day guests.
Of course these are not the only times your guests can be entertained during your special day, so please feel free to discuss your ideas and specific requirements with Mark.
MIX AND MINGLE
An opportunity for people to enjoy the entertainment in an informal setting, at a distance they feel comfortable with. Mark mixes throughout the venue performing for individuals through to large groups.
This works very well at any event looking for a relaxed atmosphere; house parties, shop openings, informal buffets, fetes, reunions and of course during reception drinks.
"The magic you performed was unbelievable!"
Adding a little magic to your gala evening helps to relax guests whilst meeting new people, giving a common topic for conversation. For charity events it can help keep the room energised and happy, meaning giving will increase.
