Looking for great entertainment for your wedding?
Help make your wedding day the greatest day of your life and celebrate in style by introducing a professional close-up magician into the mix. This can be the perfect way to break the ice amongst the guests, or simply entertain them whilst they wait between courses.
Sussex Wedding Magician Kevin Morton adopts a very engaging, yet relaxed manner when approaching each function, making the entertainment enjoyable for all and ensuring the audience feels comfortable.
Kevin has many years experience as a wedding magician, helping the happy couple make their special day extra special. He offers 3 packages that can enhance the atmosphere of your wedding reception:
The Silver Package: includes walkabout magic at either end of the day, during the reception drinks, or evening reception (one or the other). Kevin will mingle amongst small groups of guests and perform various types of magic. This is when there might be a slight lull in the proceedings; waiting for food, or waiting for the party to start. This is a great ice-breaker, in the afternoon, giving guests a great story to tell over dinner, or something to ignite the party in the evening, allowing the evening guests a chance to be part of the amazing day.
The Gold Package: this is magic during either reception (as with the Silver Package), however, Kevin would perform a specific personalised set for the Top Table (or equivalent) either just before the food, or just after the starter. An example could be the arrival drinks reception, following a short break (for a receiving line, perhaps), then an intimate set with the bridal party only. This is a really personal addition, for just the most important family and friends and can sometimes be essential, particularly if you are all taken off by the photographer during drinks. This could also be arranged later in the day, such as, a short stand-alone set with the Top Table, just prior to everyone leaving, ready for the party to start, for example, during coffee. Then a short break and entertainment during the evening reception.
Platinum: this package incorporates 3 amazing elements during your special day. For example, it may be the afternoon reception as well as the wedding breakfast. Kevin would perform a walkabout set to small groups, then entirely different magic to guests as they are sat at the tables, in between courses; ensuring the same magic is not performed twice. He would also include an extra special performance just for the Top Table (or equivalent), giving them an entirely unique and memorable experience. This could also look like the wedding breakfast first, followed by the evening reception (like the Silver Package, but the opposite way around). Kevin is happy to offer an entirely bespoke package, if this is required. Please contact him for further information as to how he will make your amazing day that perfect occasion.
When will we need Kevin to perform?
During the Drinks Reception – arrival drinks is an amazing time for any wedding celebration. Magic at this stage of the day really allows family and friends to relax, start a conversation and break the ice. It is synonymous to wedding photography and works very well alongside it. During the arrival drinks reception Kevin would mingle amongst smaller groups and perform engaging and personal magic close-up.
During the Reception Dinner – magic at the tables during the wedding breakfast, or buffet, is a great time to engage a slightly bigger crowd. This will really offer some amazing memories of a wonderful day and have something extra special for the wedding guests. Kevin recommends commencing the performance as the starters are completed and drawing to a close when required – usually before speeches. This is entirely up to those organising though!
At the Evening Reception – this is a fantastic time as there is potentially some transitional period that starts after the meal and before the evening entertainment. This can also be a great way to welcome your evening guests and ensure they are not left out of the day’s festivities. Kevin would mingle amongst small groups of guests and engage all with his performance.
How long will we need Kevin to perform for?
Kevin will recommend an amount of time dependent on the number of guests you have invited. He will aim to ensure he performs for all your guests and so will offer a favourable amount of time to do so. However, this is entirely up to the Bridal party. He can also advise on a package that would be most suitable. For example, larger numbers of guests may require the Platinum package, as it will offer more time to entertain the masses.
