How to keep your guests entertained

How to keep your guests entertained Q – We’re having a much smaller wedding than we first planned, but we still want impressive entertainment. How can we find the perfect supplier?

"There are many positives to a more intimate event with just your closest friends and family. Smaller numbers can bring the wow factor with magical entertainment, where every guest is made to feel almost as special as the bride and groom.

"A magician can provide close-up tricks in between courses as there is generally a more relaxed vibe at a smaller wedding. Everyone gets more time to take it all in and make important memories.

"Magic is perfect for when the photographs are being taken, as the bride and groom don’t need to feel pressured to hurry back to their guests.

"Children love magic and do tend to get bored during speeches. Have you considered booking a side room for the youngest ones to hang out? If there are children, organise a short magic show while the speeches take place.

"Before booking, decide on a budget and inform your supplier so you can discuss your requirements. I have performed at different types of weddings, both in terms of theme and numbers of guests, and I always advise my couples on what will work best for their circumstances."
