We asked Yorkshire wedding magician Wee Magic Al what kind of entertainment works well to fill the gap between the wedding ceremony and reception. Here's what he said...
I may be biased, but I believe a close-up magician is perfect for bridging the period between the vows and the wedding breakfast. A great magician will interact with groups of people while providing humour and a sense of wonder. It's ideal for breaking the ice and getting your guests to socialise, especially if they've never met before – and all ages will love it.
A true professional won't be showing off, but they'll create a special moment for your loved ones and keep them entertained. Just like a musician, if you pick an expert with years of experience, it'll set your day apart. From a practical point of view, they don't need a stage area and can quietly mingle with your friends and family to fill any lulls in the day.
