Why close-up magicians are so popular for weddings:
~ The entertainment factor. Magic is a stunning art form.
~ The flexibility of a close-up magician. They work around you.
~ An extra magical touch to your magical day.
~ The Memories - Once witnessed, never forgotten.
~ Cost. A good magician isn't cheap, but is inexpensive compared to other wedding costs.
Magic is a great ice-breaker. There are always a few guests who don't know each other, therefore they tend to form small groups of friends and family of who they do know. This is where the wedding magician steps in. It's impossible for strangers not to discuss what they just witnessed.
The magician can perform at numerous parts of the wedding. Your wedding, your choice. Carl will work with you, to help you decide.
While the Bride and Groom, and family members are having their photos taken, everyone else is having a few drinks and a chat. Carl will mingle with your guests, entertaining with flawless close-up magic.
During the Meal
All your guests are seated ready to eat, Carl will approach each table and perform in-between the meal courses.
Everyone has finished eating, the speeches are over, and your evening guests have arrived. Carl will mix and mingle with your guests, performing outstanding close-up magic, until the DJ turns the music up and gets started.

The Secret Room is one of the most popular choices for events with less than 120 guests.
A private room is allocated as the Secret Room. (You can also arrange for the Secret Room to be a small marquee or tepee. Yes, we can organise this if you need us to). Throughout your event, small groups of guests are invited to enter the Secret Room.
The guests are not told what’s going on in there. This gets your guests excited and curious, thus creating a talking point. The guests enter the room to find magician Carl Charlesworth waiting for them. A 10 - 15 minute magic show commences.
After the show, the guests leave. They don’t tell anyone else what’s going on in the room. They can lie about what’s going on or say, “you’re going to love it”!
This is a perfect setting, free from interruptions and distraction. The experience is exciting for the spectators. It's like a mini theatre set up within the venue or in the grounds.
Secret Room vs Strolling / Table Magic
Every one of your guests gets to witness the magic. They witness a professional magic performance without being interrupted by the waiter/waitress bringing their food. The show is not interrupted by people leaving or joining the group. The magician is the feature of the event rather than an added extra, which really creates a great atmosphere for the whole party.
"Thank you for everything yesterday!!! You have been a dream to work with and you really made my wedding that extra special! Magic is something that I really love and I am so happy that I chose you to perform in front of all of my guests! Every single person we have spoken to has mentioned your tricks being out of this world, and they all said you were a true gentleman and such a nice guy, which is something I can only back up! I also really appreciate the fact that you performed much longer than you were due to, out of your own heart! I really can't thank you enough and I hope we will be in touch soon"!

Member of the Prestige Magic Society
The Magic Circle is the most prestige magic society in the world. It is not essential that the magician you are booking is a member, but if they are, you can expect a good, professional performance. Members of the Magic Circle take pride in their art. Carl is an Associate of the Inner Magic Circle, with Silver Star. Carl has a listing on The Magic Circle website.
The word 'Professional' can be mis-used. A professional magician is a full-time, experienced magician, who entertains as their sole job. A professional relies on bookings to continue their career, therefore taking pride in entertaining to the highest standard every time.
Make sure the magician you are booking has public liability insurance.
Photos of great audience reactions are good. A variety of performance photos are important, not just a few photos of some guy holding a wand with a cheesy grin. Take a look.
As with everything else in life, 'you get what you pay for'. If you have a very tight budget, hiring a magician may not be the option for you. Admittedly you can "nd cheap magicians. This preference comes down to the image you're looking for at your wedding. That said, in comparison to the cost of other things at a wedding, hiring a magician is one of the least expensive additions.
Sometimes nothing beats that unbelievable feeling of witnessing a magic trick and not having the foggiest idea how they managed to do it. You run it over in your head, chat about it to other wedding guests and if it's impressed you enough, you might even look to book them for your own event. This is a power of a truly brilliant magician and why it's one of the best icebreakers you can invest in for your wedding day. Perfect for the time between dinner and speeches or at the champagne reception, it's such an ideal way to keep your guests entertained. To get the full lowdown on why magicians work so wonderfully at weddings, we spoke to magician Carl Charlesworth to find out all the perks and what to look out for when booking your own.
