Audience participation

Nick does not simply show guests “magic tricks”. His routines have been honed and perfected over a number of years to create a wonderful atmosphere at any party or event.  Audience interaction plays a big role in this, as guests get to experience the magic for themselves, joining in with the routines. For example, coins will appear, forks will bend, cards can change or disappear – all while being held in a guests’ hands!

When booking a close-up magician, it’s extremely important to hire somebody who is experienced and skilled in audience management.  The last thing you want at your wedding or party is for your guests to feel uncomfortable or embarrassed when they are supposed to be having the best time.

Wedding magician | Close up magic at Weddings

Hiring a Leeds Wedding Magician is a brilliant way to keep your guests entertained on your wedding day! The most popular options for booking a close-up magician at a wedding are as follows:
  • During the drinks reception/photos
Close up magic performed mix and mingle during the drinks reception is a perfect time to keep guests amazed and entertained while the photos are being taken. Without close up magic at this time, guests will spend their time with little to do and the party can feel a little flat. Instead, Nick will create a brilliant atmosphere so everyone will be talking about how amazing your wedding entertainment is.
  • In between courses of the wedding breakfast.
The wedding breakfast is a fantastic time to include magic in your day. Each table gets a personal magic performance and guests will be thrilled to see close-up magic performed right in front of their eyes. Performing between courses as not to interrupt the foodservice, Nick will have a lot of fun with you and your guests, and laughter and applause will certainly follow him around the room!
  • After the meal and speeches, before the disco/band gets going
Hiring Nick as your wedding magician after the speeches is ideal to fill the gap that occurs between daytime and evening events. Daytime guests really appreciate having entertainment at this time, especially close up magic as it is informal following the formalities of the meal and speeches.
  • As part of the evening entertainment for all evening guests
Not everyone enjoys a disco or band. Having Nick’s amazing close-up magic at this time is perfect for those standing at the bar area, sitting in separate rooms or mingling outside on a warm summer night. Also, Nick’s magic is the perfect ice breaker for when evening guests arrive. Wedding magic will break the ice between family and friends who do not necessarily know each other, giving common ground to chat about throughout the day. Make your wedding day event amazing and add that special wow factor!
