A close-up magician working the crowd during drinks and dinner is a great way to break the ice between guests and create a fun atmosphere and a buzz around the event.
This ensures that everyone is involved and part of the fun.
Most importantly, they are not forgotten about!
“We would like to thank you so much for the terrific performance that you put on at our wedding. All of the guests loved you and the amazing magic. We thought that you added something special to our day.”
Stef & Nadine
“Hi Greg, I just wanted to say how good Tasmin & I thought you were. We have heard nothing but praise from our guests who were all completely astounded by your skills, professional manner and what a lovely person you are. You made our day that little bit more special and I can guarantee you will get a lot of extra business from that. On behalf of us and all of our guests, thank you so much and can’t wait to hire you again soon.”

Whilst you and your partner are whisked off with close family for your photos, the remainder of your guests will be alone, waiting for the next part of the day.
Greg can turn this lull into one of the days most memorable experiences by mingling with your guests, breaking the ice and creating an exciting atmosphere.
You can relax and rest assured that your guests are in safe hands and are having a great time.
Typically most venues allocate 1.5-2 hours for this period before the wedding breakfast. It is a long time for your guests if there is not a lot happening! This period of time will allow Greg to comfortably meet up to 120 guests. Generally, most wedding parties are between 50-100 guests so everyone will get to experience the magic and be a part of the fun.
Greg’s act is completely self contained and he will work closely with the head waiter/waitress to ensure that all tables are kept busy.
Typically Greg will start at the table to be served last and work backwards around the room until he meets the waiting staff. By this point the top table will have finished so there is a seamless transition around the room. Greg will not approach a table whilst they are eating to ensure that the guests enjoy the food and it does not go cold!
Venues allow approximately 2 hours from when you are welcomed into the room until the speeches. This will allow Greg to meet up to 15 tables. If you have fewer, Greg will either double up and visit some tables twice or extend his performance at each table. If you are expecting more guests, Greg can supply additional magicians from his team.
Greg will ensure that everyone on the table is involved and a part of the magic!
This is a combination of both the Photo and Breakfast Packages.
Depending on the number of guests/tables you are expecting, Greg will start during the drinks reception and overlap into the wedding breakfast.
It means that everyone will be thoroughly entertained and if there are any delays in the kitchen or unforeseen circumstances, Greg will be on hand to keep everyone entertained.
This is when the party really starts! In a similar manner to the photos/drinks package, Greg will mix and mingle with your guests, creating amazing moments of magic in your guests hands.
Greg can arrive and start entertaining guests, this is especially beneficial if there is an overlap between evening guests arrivng and finishing the speeches/wedding breakfast. Mix and Mingle Magic works very well in this more relaxed environment. Greg can offer the perfect entertainment to those who perhaps do not want to dance, or even to those waiting at the bar. Close-up Magic adds a fantastic extra wow factor to the evening. The performance will usually conclude around the time of the first dance.
“I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for entertaining us and our guests for the wedding. Everyone keeps on talking about how amazing you were and not only with your tricks but also your showmanship and presence. It truly made the day even more special than we could have ever imagined and we both feel so lucky and privileged to have chosen you. We will definitely be recommending you for years to come.”
Liz & Ant
“Hi Greg, wow what a fantastic day Michelle and I had last Saturday! We have to give a big thank you to you for a great 2 hours which seemed to go by in the blink of an eye. You were the talk of the afternoon, absolutely brilliant from the moment you arrived. Very professional even under the intense scrutiny of some of the other magicians in the marquee ( so they thought after a few beers!) but on a serious note Michelle and I would highly recommend you to anyone. If someone is looking for a sensational magician they need look no further!”
Matt & Michelle
“What can I say??? WOW!!! You went down a treat! Thank you so very much for all you did on Saturday night in making our wedding reception even more memorable. My other half was really impressed, not to mention the guests. I lost count of the amount of people who came up to me on the night asking for your details and saying how brilliant you were. You really made an impression.”
“Dear Greg, A huge thank you for your wonderful entertainment last night! It really made the evening very special for everyone, and especially the children who loved it and you were extremely patient with their demands! The magic was truly awesome, I’ve always been fascinated by it – and I really don’t want to know how things are done. I will most definitely pass your cards and details onto people and would highly recommend you to them.”
