8 Reasons to book a Wedding Magician

From a Wedding Photographers Point of View

As a wedding photographer, I’ve had the pleasure of working with some amazing magicians over the years. I love it when I know a close-up magician will be at the wedding as it not only gives me the opportunity to capture amazing photos but has some other cool benefits to create
unforgettable memories.

Here are 8 reasons why you should consider booking a magician for your wedding entertainment:

1. They add an element of fun and excitement to the day:

A good magician will have your guests laughing and gasping in amazement all day long. This is the perfect way to add some extra fun and excitement to your big day! Whether you choose the drinks reception or after the wedding breakfast, having a magician sets the tone for a great day.

2. They make great photo opportunities:

Capturing candid shots of your guests enjoying the magic is always a highlight for me as a photographer. I love seeing the expressions on peoples faces when they’re caught up in the moment! This is especially true when the magician performs for the Bride & Groom or even as the magician pickpockets the Best Man’s watch! These special moments never fail to make for some truly magical photos.

3. They help break the ice and get people talking:

If you’ve got guests who don’t know each other too well, a magician is a great way to help break the ice and get everyone talking. There’s nothing like watching some jaw-dropping magic tricks to get people chatting! During the drinks reception, particularly when I’m taking group shots, a magician can help keep everyone entertained until they go into the wedding breakfast.

If you’re looking for something a little different, booking a close-up magician can really add a touch of class to your wedding day entertainment. Keeping guests entertained with a rare experience will set your wedding apart and leave a lasting impression.

5. They make your wedding day truly unique:

With so many weddings taking place these days, it can be hard to make yours stand out from the crowd. But if you book a good wedding magician, you can guarantee that your big day will be one that people remember for years to come! From crazy mind-reading to funny card tricks, your wedding won’t be forgotten!

6.  It helps maintain the energy

Weddings are long days,  and as the day goes on, it can be easy for the energy to start flagging. But if you’ve got a magician working their magic, they’ll help keep the energy levels up and keep your guests entertained right until the end of the night! In particular, as your evening guests turn up, a wedding magician can help bring them up to speed and into the party spirit.

7. They’re great value for money

Wedding magicians offer some serious bang for your buck and although the best ones aren’t cheap, they’re well worth the investment. As well as jaw-dropping entertainment they’re also problem solvers!

 For instance, if your caterers are running late, have your magician work the room and buy you some extra time. If your wedding venue needs more time to turn the room around, have your magician plug the gap with some interactive entertainment. Having a magician at your wedding is in my mind a flexible entertainment solution.

8. They make things more relaxed

Wedding days can be pretty full-on and things don’t always go to plan. When you book a magician, you guarantee that guests will be brought together in a shared experience of laughter and amazement and when this happens, guards are let down. Guests can relax and this helps the general vibe of the day become more fun and light-hearted.
