We have always recommended that you consider booking some form of entertainment at your wedding. The standard wedding day will most likely have two periods of time that can become a bit of a lull point in the day if not utilised correctly. After your wedding ceremony you are likely to have time between the ceremony and your wedding breakfast. A chunk of this will likely be occupied with some wedding photography by your wedding photographer. This is one of the ideal times to consider some form of entertainment. The other period of time usually falls between your wedding breakfast and wedding reception. In our opinion this is the key time to consider booking additional entertainment for you and your guests on your big day. Our favourite form of entertainment has always been the wedding magician.
Why do we favour the magician over other potential entertainment you ask? Hopefully some of the photos below will highlight why we believe magicians are a great form of entertainment. Many forms of entertainment are often expensive and magicians are often on the lower end of the scale. The main beauty of hiring a magician at your wedding is that they can entertain large groups of people at once and create a buzz amongst your guests. You won’t get the same from most other forms of entertainment.
Obviously when considering your wedding finances, you have a set list of costs that you can’t avoid and therefore the additional cost of entertainment can often be off putting. Therefore, many couples will not consider spending the unnecessary extra money. We say forget about the cost of entertainment and go for it, an additional few hundred pounds could be the difference between you and your guests having a good time and a great time.
We have worked with quite a few magicians throughout our time as wedding photographers. We recommend the following based on the response they usually get from the guests and the reviews they have from brides and grooms that have used them. They cover most of the north west and beyond (Bolton, Burnley, Cheshire, Clitheroe, Manchester, Rochdale)
