Weddings and magic are a match made in heaven. As well as adding sparkle to your special day, it’s an essential form of entertainment to keep your guests happy and help your day run smoothly.
Carl is a veteran wedding magician who has gained a reputation for his fun, relaxed and empathetic approach to wedding entertainment. Having performed at hundreds of weddings in the UK and abroad, including celebrity and royal weddings, he knows exactly how to enhance your celebrations with a touch of magic.
Wedding entertainment serves an important purpose on your big day. Whether you’re planning a drinks reception, wedding breakfast or evening reception, let’s take a look at the role of close-up magic at a wedding:
Wedding Magician – Drinks Reception
The drinks reception offers an opportunity for wedding photos whilst your guests get started on the champagne and refreshments. However it’s crucial to keep the momentum going during this often lengthy period, which is why a close up magician is such a popular choice.
Carl will make sure your guests stay entertained whilst the photographs are being taken, using close-up magic to delight and amaze guests, and get everyone in the spirit of the celebrations. He’ll also help to break the ice, bringing together people who may not know each other. His infectious energy and enthusiasm will create the perfect atmosphere for your reception.
If you are getting married in a church, Carl will be waiting at your reception venue to entertain guests as they arrive. If your wedding and reception are at the same venue, he will join your special guests as they get their first drinks after the ceremony.
Encouraging guests to laugh, mingle and have a good time, Carl promises to set the scene for a memorable drinks reception.
Close-up table magic is the perfect way to set the tone for a wedding breakfast, a light-hearted addition to this more formal part of your wedding day. Carl will get your guests clapping, laughing and cheering, performing between courses to create a fun and dynamic atmosphere during this sit-down meal before the speeches begin.
You can book Carl for the drinks reception or the wedding breakfast only, however we highly recommend booking him for both to get the most out of your wedding entertainment. People love magic, and he will ensure that every performance is full of surprises!

Close-up magic is the perfect accompaniment to the celebrations at an evening reception, adding another dimension to your wedding. Carl will leave guests smiling and laughing with his extensive repertoire of magical skills and tricks.
A tried-and-tested form of wedding entertainment, Carl knows how to enhance your special day, and you’ll be glad that you invested in more than music when you use Carl as your wedding magician.
Mind the Gap!
Brides and grooms often ask about having a magician between the end of the wedding breakfast and the start of the evening reception. However, Carl usually advises against this; especially if you’re staying at a hotel, guests often go back to their rooms to freshen up, or go for a walk around the grounds. Therefore, you risk wasting money on your entertainment.
If you are considering hiring a wedding magician for this period of the day, Carl can advise you based on your individual circumstances.
