Wedding Entertainmnet Ideas - Magican!
Performing at various times during your day with many flexible options for performance times and bookings. Roger will ensure all your guests are entertained whilst you are enjoying your wedding day.
Entertainment for a wedding reception is not something most couples think about but for those that do your guests are in for a treat!
The the most popular time for a magician is to perform is during the photographs / drinks reception. Whilst you are busy being the centre of attention, getting hour photos taken, the guests may need some entertainment, it is the perfect ice breaker for friends or family who may not have even met before. A Magician is perfect for this and always great fun. A Magician is also great for entertaining during the wedding breakfast where guests at a table may be feeling awkward not knowing anybody else. Magic allows them to find common ground with the table and is a great starter for conversations after Roger has moved on. This video was filmed at Sopley Mill, Hampshire.
Performance Times - During the Photos
This is the most popular performance time. After you have returned from the church there will probably be about 2 hours for the drinks reception / photos. Roger will mingle with your guests and perform my close up magic whilst everyone waits for their photos and also whilst you are having your photographs taken.
During the Wedding Breakfast
This performance usually continues from the photos or Roger can start at any time. With an 8-10 minute interactive performance he will ensure everyone at the table is involved. A wedding reception magician is a great ice breaker for guests that have maybe never met before. Roger also has a special routine for the newly married couple leaving them with an everlasting memory.
Wedding Reception Entertainment Ideas
Most venues will need time to clear away the tables where your wedding breakfast took place in order to prepare the dance floor whilst the band or disco setup. Roger can entertain your guests during this time while they are waiting for the evening celebrations to get started. If you are wondering how to entertain guests between ceremony and reception then a wedding magician could be the perfect choice. Finally if you are expecting more guests for the evening this is another great performance slot. Guests arriving for the evening will be unaware you have had a magician performing during the day. Roger can then stay into the night until everyone has seen some close up magic.
If you are expecting a lot of guests Roger can usually accommodate a mix of all of the above. e.g performing during the photos, then take a break whilst the wedding breakfast is being served (Roger would request that you can arrange for a meal for himself also). He will then provide a second performance towards the end of the wedding breakfast and then take another short break. There will then be a third performance for your evening guests. This package is typically for larger weddings and I would usually be in attendance for 4-5 hours with a performance time of 3+ hours. If you are looking for cheap wedding entertainment a Magician might not be the best choice so you could consider some alternative ideas that might not cost as much. If you are having a small wedding a Magician is perfect for an intimate performance, the smallest Wedding Roger has performed it was 6 guests and the largest was 700 guests! This was an indian wedding and he was working with 4 other magicians.

Other Unusual Wedding Entertainment Ideas
Another very popular idea for wedding entertainment is a Caricaturist
Expect to pay up to £500 for 2 hours, this will normally provide you with a drawing every 5 minutes. It's a great keepsake from your wedding day but don't expect them to be able to get to everyone, this is an art and not a photo but some of the results are amazing.
Very similar to a Caricaturist is a Silouette cutter.
Using a very small pair of scissors they can cut out your silouette on a piece of black paper and present it to you in a small frame, this is more amazing than the Caricaturist but is rarely seen.
However you don't have to spend a lot of money, some of the best wedding entertainment ideas are free. Get a big board and put up some baby photos of the wedding party and get guests to guess who is who?
