Four reasons to book wedding magic with Sussex magician, Stephen James

Here at YSXW HQ we can’t get enough of the wedding-related expertise our local suppliers have to offer. This invaluable wisdom is born from years of experience and we love nothing more than sharing that with you. So, when we discovered magician Stephen James’ blog we thought it was about time we brought it to your attention! After all, there’s such handy hints as “6 Wedding Speech Mistakes,” and “How to Choose a Magician,” as well as our favourite: “4 Reasons to Book Wedding Magic.” Let’s take a closer look!

Stephen’s first reason is to get guests excited. He says, “Walking around a drinks reception I see everyone perk up as I tell them which word they’re thinking of, turn lottery tickets into cash before their eyes or surprise them with smoke and fire.”

Secondly, he tells us that a magician can fill in the gaps – “This can be when phots are being taken, while waiting for food, or even at the party later on. As a magician I fill these gaps making them a highlight of you day that people remember.”

Next is breaking the ice. Stephen explains, “A magician brings the group on each table together as they all experience the magic and after I’ve performed, they usually go beyond small talk to discussing theories on how I pushed their wine bottle through the table!”

Finally, as if you need any more reason to book a magician: photos and videos. After all, what could be better than a spot of magic to provide your photographer and videographer with ample opportunity to catch guests laughing and interacting?
