Today saw me present my close up magic at the wedding ceremony of Cheryl and Martin taking place in Birmingham at Aston Hall. My duties were to mix and mingle with their families and friends and knock their socks off with my sleight of hand magic skills! No problem at all!
To obtain feedback regarding my services I asked them both why they chose me to entertain their guests on their wedding day. They told me that they had read my previous customer reviews on my Facebook page and enjoyed watching my magic videos.
CLOSE UP MAGIC DURING DRINKS RECEPTION
My favourite part of the wedding day to perform my walk around magic is definitely during the drinks reception. Aston has a beautiful wedding ceremonial room with a big warm roaring fireplace when couple exchange their vows with each other. Afterwards the ceremony the photographer generally takes all the guests outside in the magnificent surrounding grounds to take the big group picture.
Next to The Long Drawing Room is another overflow room for guest to enjoy drinks and canapés. As I strolled around performing I also met a couple called Susan and Craig. I performed my magic at their wedding last year also in Birmingham. It is a small world!
They only saw a few of my tricks on their day as they were busy so they asked me to give them a special performance for them and four of their friends which naturally I did with excitement and passion! I performed close up magic for them with playing cards and coins. Then I borrowed some of their jewellery to create amazing moment of magic! As if this was not enough I then went on to read a few of their minds! Very strong and entertaining magic indeed!
MAGIC DURING THE WEDDING BREAKFAST
Aston Hall has a magnificent banqueting hall which can easily seat around seventy guests and is primarily used for weddings and parties.
Performing close up magic around the guest’s tables during the wedding breakfast is another great time to have magic performed at a wedding. Although I did not do this today, I have done this in the past at previous weddings, jumped from table to table giving each one their own private magic performance. However, I only do this when guests are not actually eating such as in between courses of during coffees.
ASTON HALL AS A BIRMINGHAM WEDDING VENUE
I very much enjoyed performing my magic at Aston Hall today. It is a marvellous and beautiful wedding venue. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Anyone luck enough to hold their wedding here will have the Castle exclusively to themselves and enjoy its excellent facilities.
There are ample parking spaces and restroom facilities. The grounds are magnificent and there are many places to take some beautiful wedding pictures. The North courtyard is suited for one hundred and fifty people and has an outdoor marque.
