Wedding Magic That Reflects the Class, Style and Wonder of Your Celebrations
I have performed magic at hundreds of weddings across Yorkshire, the UK and more recently a few destination weddings abroad. Definitely not the cheesy, stereotypical magician you may have experienced before. I fit in amongst your guests, amazing them with magic tricks but more importantly conducting myself in a polite and likeable fashion.
I’ve got a proper Northerner’s sense of humour which reflects in everything I do so I absolutely love getting everyone laughing and joking on your special day.
At the end of the day, I’m not there just to perform card tricks, I’m there to create spontaneous laughter, applause, cheers and amazement. An atmosphere every wedding should have and the best ones are remembered for. I love seeing the small groups I perform for share an instant bonding experience together and continue enthusiastic conversation well after I’ve moved on to perform for another group of unsuspecting victims (sorry I mean “guests”).
Professional Party Starter & Speeches Warm-Up Act
At your wedding there are a few times in the day when you will be off having photographs taken or greeting lots of different people. You can’t be everywhere all of the time which is why having a magician like me to mingle, greet and entertain is a great idea. Don’t worry, I always take time to make sure you two get to experience some magic too so you wot miss out.
Weddings are wonderful for everyone but a few of the most important attendees have the impending doom of being about to give the biggest speech of their life. A couple of hours of me performing magic between the service and the wedding breakfast really breaks the ice, letting everyone know that it’s ok to make some noise, clap, laugh and cheer. I like to see myself as a bit of a warm-up for the speeches so your speakers need not have such sweaty palms, I’ll happily take the hit of “going in cold”.
Wedding Magician of the Year 2020!
I’ve been pretty chuffed in the past few years as I don’t really go in for awards but I’ve been nominated for and then won quite a few including the Global Wedding Awards – Wedding Magician of the year, UK Wedding Magician of the Year and the Innovation and Excellence Awards Wedding Magician of the Year (that’s the shiny pretty one in the picture just there).
Why magic and why me in particular?
Magic during the photographs is a great way of keeping guests entertained & an awesome ice breaker.
My tricks are designed to bring groups together, keep them engaged and give everyone some common ground to start socialising.
I love to get people laughing, joking and applauding – all of which add to the atmosphere of a great day.
Some ceremonies are more suited to magical entertainment during the evening reception. A great way to get the party started and give evening guests that little something extra too.
I’m the current Innovation & Excellence Wedding Magician Of The Year with 5 other wedding awards and counting.
With over 20 years of professional experience performing at weddings, I am more than happy to give free advice on anything entertainment related. If magic wouldn’t suit your special day then I promise to point you in the right direction with other ideas.
Got kids coming? I can cater for them too, either as part of my close up magic or as a sit down show, check out The Magic Matt Show which won Childrens Wedding Entertainer Of The Year this year.
I’ll smile politely and even do a little false chuckle when ‘Uncle Knobhead’ uses the “you’re a magician, can you make my wife disappear” line.**
** 1 free chuckle per wedding, the rest of the time I’ll just force a smile whilst biting my tongue behind it.
Let me know more about your event & we’ll make it more magical
I’ve performed at thousands of events, just drop me a message with a little more info about yours and I can advise what magic and/or entertainment will work best for you.
Matthew came highly recommended to entertain for us at our wedding. From the offset communication and booking was easy and on the day Matthew wowed our guests with his magic. So many people have commented how amazing the magic was, one friend said “The magician was amazing, he definitely had genuine magical powers”. Thank you so much for entertaining at our wedding!!
Amazing……all of our guests loved Matt, they were thoroughly entertained and mesmerized by his tricks. Matt had something for everyone from my two year old nephew to my 78 year old dad! My only regret is not booking Matt for longer. Would book again without hesitation!
Hi Matthew, Just wanted to send a quick message to say thank you for performing at our wedding last Saturday. Your performance was really well received by all our guests, and the kids really enjoyed the balloons. Everyone was still swapping stories about your magic on the Sunday morning – it’s all people wanted to talk to us about. Thanks again, Peter & Shelley
