I’ve had the honour of performing at hundreds of weddings over the years and it’s always been an amazing experience. Here is a particular wedding that sticks in my mind for having a spectacular bride, groom and guests, who were all keen to enjoy not just the magic of the special day, but also the magic of my close-up tricks!
If I had to choose one wedding that sticks out for me, it would be difficult. All the special events I’ve attended and performed for have been spectacular, and I feel privileged to be able to be part of a couple's special day.
However, the wedding of Jo and Martin sticks in my mind because the audience was brilliant—the environment, the people and the way they reacted to the magic was amazing and made for a really special occasion.
The Couple Card Trick
This trick is infamous and I wanted to highlight the important part of the wedding: the couple.
The trick I performed included Jo and Martin signing their names on two different cards. Jo had her own card and Martin had his.
As soon as they were finished writing their names, I took the cards from them and placed them together. I then merged the cards into one—using this as a metaphor to highlight their special day.
Their names were on both sides of the card, which could not be separated!
The Signed Coin Trick
This was one of the highlights. In this trick, Jo tightly closed her hand as smoke billowed and out popped a signed bent coin!
Her reaction was priceless!
It was a magical moment for both her and Martin.
Playing Cards — Aced it!
Well, what’s a close up magician without cards? A gig feels somehow incomplete without card tricks; so, I made sure there was plenty of deck action.
Whether it was vanishing cards appearing underneath the card box or inside the pockets of guests, the audience was amazed!
Wondering how I do what I do? As you know full well, I can't tell you (I'd have to kill you), but you can book me for your wedding, watch me closely and try hard to find out (you won't be able to, I'm that good).
