Hiring a Wedding Magician for your big day is an ideal way to keep all your wedding guests amused whilst you are having your photos taken or during the wedding breakfast or even during the evening celebrations. You can relax whilst you are having your photos taken or during the meal and know that your guests are enjoying some close up magic and being entertained.
A good wedding magician can perform table magic tricks to everyone both young and old and is a great way to add an extra bit of magic to your big day. A Wedding Magician is really just a Close up Magician who performs at weddings, they understand how the day works and have performed at many weddings before so you can relax knowing your wedding entertainment is taken care of.
Wedding Magician Hampshire
Hi, I’m Roger Lapin (pictured above) I have been a professional wedding magician for over 20 years and perform at over 50 weddings a year. I predominantly work as a Magician in Hampshire but am also available to perform my wedding magic across the UK. I really enjoy performing my Close up Magic at weddings.
I am a member of the Magic Circle & Equity and can guarantee you some amazing wedding entertainment.
I have had the great privilege to perform at some amazing wedding venues and meet some great people.
One of my all time favourite wedding receptions has to be on a beach in Newquay, Cornwall. The groom flew his own helicopter to the reception, and later flew his wife off to the airport for their honeymoon!
Wedding Magician Cost
How much is a Magician for a Wedding UK ?
This is one of the first things people ask me when enquiring about hiring a Magician for their wedding.
Whilst most weddings tend to follow a very similar format.
- Wedding Service
- Wedding Breakfast
- Room Turnaround
- Evening Guests arrive
- DJ or Wedding Band
The pricing for a wedding magician can vary a lot depending on how much magic you want your guests to see.
For an average wedding of 80 guests a 2 hour performance is going to be perfect, if you are expecting another 30 guests for the evening 3 hours might be better.
If however you are expecting over 150 guests for the day and more for the evening I am going to need more time to get around to everyone.
The shortest time I have performed at a wedding was for 1 hour for 15 guests and the longest was for 6 hours for over 200 guests.
Pricing will vary depending on location but for a 2 hour performance expect to pay between £300 – £450 for some amazing close up magic at your wedding.
A Saturday is more expensive than a weekday.

If you are expecting over 150 guests it is advised to hire multiple wedding magicians and I regularly work with many other wedding magicians and can hire them on your behalf. They will all perform a mix of table magic, mind reading and some cunning sleight of hand.
Wedding Magician for Hire Near Me
How do you find a wedding magician? Most people are searching for a wedding magician near me or a magician near me to try and find a local magician, which is sensible advice.
You don’t want to be hiring a magician who has to travel 200 miles to your wedding, when there might a one who live around the corner.
There are many exceptions to this and I have performed at weddings all over England and even at one in France, Italy and Dubai!
I had performed at parties or the bride and groom had met me at an event previously and said “we have to have you perform at our wedding!”
It doesn’t happen very often but when it does, it’s great as all my travel expenses are paid and I get a day or two in another country.
Most weddings I perform at are local to me in the New Forest, around Southampton and across Hampshire. Hire one of the few local wedding magicians with over 20 years experience and 100’s of professional performances under his belt.
