Wedding Magician Options

The most common question I am asked as a wedding magician is when is the best time to have my magic during the day. With that in mind, here are some of the most popular options.

Afternoon Drinks & Photographs

This is an excellent time to hire my walkaround close up magic. As you take in the feeling of being married - I'll introduce myself to everyone and make sure they feel part of the celebration.

This has the added advantage that you can meet guests at your own pace, without the pressure of feeling that anyone will be left out.

I'll meet guests where they are which means it's flexible enough for at the bar, in a lounge or outside in the garden. This can even take place during the photographs, as I can stop whenever someone is called for their moment.

Wedding Breakfast & Speeches

Close up magic table side during the wedding breakfast is a popular request, that works well at some weddings, but not all. And so it's worth having a quick chat with me about the best options for your day.

Another option to consider is the a group performance at the end of the meal and / or hosting of the speeches. In short, I'll perform a short performance to the whole group (5 to 20 minutes) and then introduce the speeches. Think of me as the warm up guy. I'll make sure everyone is paying attention and put your speakers at ease. After all, if professionals find that useful, I'm sure your speakers will.

Early Evening / Wedding Reception

The early evening turnaround time is the perfect place for close up magic, and the most popular time that I am booked for. It's also so important, as these moments often set the tempo for the rest of the evening.

So, while the DJ or band are still setting up, I'll meet, chat with and entertain guests who have been there all day, sharing with them my lively, upbeat close up magic. Let's get your venue feeling like a party. Just imagine hearing your friends laughing together, then shrieking with delight, then suddenly going quiet as they realise the impossible has happened and they don't know how in the world it worked!

Not only that but I'll greet any new guests, welcoming them to the party and making sure no-one is left out.

My favourite wedding magician photograph

I couldn't let this page pass by without including the photograph above. I love it! Why? Quite simply, the photographer has captured one of those "how does he do it?" It's what my magic is all about, bringing you and your guests together.

Right after this moment, as I left the group, I heard them start talking about the magic, "Did you see when...?" and "We've got to show Uncle Tony, he'll love it." And do you know what, I bet they are still talking about it to this day.

Reviews for my wedding magic

We would really like to thank you for your amazing addition to our daughter’s wedding. The feedback received was extremely positive and we were particularly impressed with the way you handled the heckler! Our evening was enhanced with your jovial banter, as well as the amazing magic! We would also like to thank you for the easy way we were able to book the evening and a special thanks for your flexibility over the many start/end time changes. 

Terry Obeney, Stafford

Ed recently performed at my sister’s wedding at Rowton Castle. Everybody enjoyed his magic. He brought humour to what he was doing. The professional manner in which he took the booking and ensured he knew exactly what was required was a credit to him. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anybody who is looking for a solid professional.

Jeremy Haigh, Shrewsbury

Ed was professional and communicated frequently prior to the day, he was punctual, friendly, funny and most importantly extremely entertaining. We are very grateful to Ed and will be recommending him highly to all of our friends!

How much does a wedding magician cost?

The price of a wedding magician varies based on the experience of the performer. If you really are looking for the absolute cheapest, well that's not me. However, I would suggest that a wedding perhaps isn't the time to hire someone who is just starting out. I talk about that in more detail here but in short you only get one chance to make this day right.

I'm here to help with that responsibility. When you enquire with me, I'll be 100% honest with you about what's the best option for your event. Just recently I even recommended that a couple did not book me.

Perhaps you have no idea how much a magician costs?

That's fine, so let me give you some advice on what to budget for a quality close up magician. It might end up being slightly less if it's a local or midweek event, or slightly more if you ask for some personalisations, or you want to schedule a break between the magic sessions, but generally if I were hiring a wedding magician, I would put aside between £400 to £800.

Where do you provide wedding entertainment?

You're wedding is not too far for me. I've performed at weddings across the UK, from the heights of Northumberland to the tippy toe of Cornwall. I've not yet performed at a wedding in Scotland or Northern Ireland, but maybe one day, I will.

Generally, though I'm based in Staffordshire, and often perform across Birmingham, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, Wales, Derby, Nottingham and Manchester.

Furthest wedding so far: Miami ← Yes, the one in the USA.

Making your wedding day amazing, incredible, magical all starts with a single email or call to 07792 129 828. I'll offer you the wealth of my experience, and you don't even have to book me! If you take all the knowledge I give and book another quality performer, that's still a win in my mind.


Magic is enjoyed by many because of the memories that are formed when people share something impossible together! My performances spark the stories you'll be telling throughout your event and for many years after.

What will yours be?

Ed regularly performs magic for weddings, anniversaries, parties and corporate events in Birmingham, Nottingham, Staffordshire, and Shropshire. But you can hire him to perform anywhere. In fact, it's recommended that you do! 😊
