Tell us about yourself and how you landed your dream job as a wedding magician...
I am a UK magician and entertainer, specialising in elite and exclusive weddings. My services offer entertainment for the happy couple and their guests throughout selected periods in the day. My interest in magic began at an early age, with my first magic book given to me at the age of 7 - I was instantly hooked! I performed in school and my first paid performance was at the age of 12 for a friend's birthday. It's been my love ever since.
What's your top tip for wedding couples looking to book a magician?
When booking a magician, make sure you choose one that will suit your day and theme. Think about when you'll want them to entertain your guests. My recommendations are during the day drinks reception on the lead up to the wedding breakfast, after the meal before your evening guests arrive or whilst your evening guests start to arrive. These are the lull periods where you'll be mingling, having your photos taken, taking a breather, etc. and I will keep your guests entertained.
I will always wear a suit (unless asked otherwise) and arrive early in case your timings are a little off and I will never leave until you have experienced your own special performance with a souvenir to remind you of your special day.
What question do you get asked the most?
The most common questions usually asked are: "Can you make xxx disappear?" or "Can you make some cash appear?" The classics!
