As a founding member of the Bolton Magic club and a member of the world famous Blackpool Magicians Club (home to the world’s largest magic convention), Chris has performed throughout the UK, captivating audiences with his magic using cards, coins, ropes and more.His close up magic is an excellent choice of entertainment for any occasion, bringing people together with his unique sense of humour to create an experience your guests will enjoy and remember.

In the last 20 Years or so, booking a professional magician for the purpose of wedding entertainment has become increasingly popular partially due to the popularity of magicians on television such as David Blaine, Dynamo and Derren Brown.

Why have a magician at your wedding?

There are many types of entertainment you could have as part of your wedding package, however, few have the same impact that an experienced close-up magician can offer! Booking Chris for your special day will give your guests a thrilling experience they won't forget.

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

It’s entirely up to you! Why not have your magician entertain the guests as they arrive at the wedding venue or maybe you would prefer him to perform magic following your ceremony. If you’re getting married at the venue, there is ample time when the photographer is getting the family & friends group shots organised as well as those special bride and groom pictures - this is an excellent time to use a close-up magician to keep your guests entertained.

Magic at your wedding breakfast

Having Chris perform magic at tables during the meal is also a great way to create a fun atmosphere while your guests are waiting to be served, when the tables are being cleared and also between courses. Often Chris would tend to finish performing just before the speeches, or at an agreed time if the speeches are scheduled for before the meal. Due to his many years of experience Chris is able to read when to approach a table to perform to guests. Chris’s experience also enables him to recognise when appropriate to take a step back so that he doesn’t hinder the staff serving the meal and clearing the tables, which helps to keep everything running smoothly and on schedule. After the meal, when people often like to take a time out and before the start of the evenings events, Chris will continue to be available to entertain any guests should they want to see more of his unique style of magic.  

Close-up magic during your evening reception

This part of the day isn’t popular with many magicians, as often the lights are down and you may have loud entertainment which can create a very demanding environment for the close-up magician to work in. With Chris's decades of experience this is no problem at all. So whether you require Chris at the beginning of the day, during the meal or in the evening, you won’t be disappointed. Over 20 years of experience combined with reasonable prices make Chris an excellent choice when you are looking to add a bit of extra magic to your special day.
