Alyshia Manning, Bride – Gellifawr Woodland Retreat Wedding, 2022

Our Christmas wedding day was so magical at Fairyhill, it couldn’t have been better!

Steve’s magic was breath-taking, and everyone had so much fun! We loved watching everyone’s reactions and how amazed they looked at all the tricks! Steve is such a lovely and friendly person and put everyone at ease. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about Steve’s magic, he is so talented. The communication from the first time we met Steve was first class and so professional. We would highly recommend Steve for any event you may be planning, and we are delighted with the photos and video too! We can’t thank you enough Steve! Karin and Jeff 

Karin Jenkins, Bride – Fairyhill Wedding, 2021

Such an amazing person, Steve had everyone amazed with his magic and people can’t stop talking about him. He entertained our lovely guests at our wedding in December 2021 and we are certain they will be talking about him in years to come. such amazing talent. The communication was outstanding from when we booked until our wedding day (and even after). He always replied to our messages and answered all questions we had. We are so excited to see the footage and reactions. We would 100% use Steve again and recommend him to everyone! Thank you so much Steve 

Tanya Haines, Bride – Elmhay Park Wedding, 2021

Cannot recommend Steve highly enough!!! Everyone at the wedding loved him and his warm personality and of course the VERY entertaining magic tricks!! There was such a massive range of tricks for adults and children which everyone loved! We had Steve for when the bride and groom went off for photos which kept everyone so entertained!! He was what everyone was talking about after the wedding!! Cannot thank Steve enough!!!

Amy Sara, Bride – Oldwalls Wedding, 2021

Where do I start!!

From the moment we booked Steve for our wedding, he was nothing but polite and very responsive. Steve contacted a couple of days before the wedding to ensure everything was still ok and confirmed his time of starting. Steve performed his magic tricks for all of our guests who thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment!! We are still having messages a week after the wedding to say how great he was!!  There were also young children at the wedding, and Steve made sure that they were also entertained, they absolutely loved magic. We can not recommend Steve to be part of your special occasions, he really went above and beyond!!  Thanks Again Steve for such a fantastic performance you were amazing and I can see how you have won Best Magician 2021 and The Brilliance Award 2021, you were outstanding 

All the best, Catherine and Paul Lewis

Catherine Lewis, Bride – Craig Y Nos Wedding, 2021

We met Steve at a wedding fayre a good few years back. At that point we hadn’t decided if we wanted a Magician or not but took his card as he made such a good impression. A year or so after that we kept referencing him when talking about what we wanted at our wedding even though we had met quite a few magicians after him, he stuck in our heads! we definitely chose the right person as all of our guests spoke highly of him and how he blew their minds! He’s a really nice guy and he comes with treats too! 

Jeune-Renay Coleman, Bride – De Courceys Manor Wedding, 2021

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Steve for entertaining our guests during the evening of our wedding day! He wowed the guests from the moment he arrived, and everyone has commented on how brilliant he was. Not only that, but prior to this we had to postpone our wedding and Steve was really accommodating to new dates and times.

If anyone is looking for someone to entertain guests at a party, then I would 100% recommend Steve. He was brilliant at his work but also friendly, approachable, yet professional! Thanks again Steve. You’re awesome!! 

Rebecca Hooper, Bride – Grove Golf Club Wedding, 2021

I’d organised a surprise 50th birthday party for my husband and felt I needed something to entertain the guests as they arrived and before the disco started. Steve was the perfect solution, and he worked his way round the room where he left guests amazed and baffled. One month later friends are still talking about how amazing he was, and some have even gone on to book him for their family functions, if you are having a party Steve is a must

Rachel Owen, Party Organiser – Glyn Clydach Party, 2021

Steve was absolutely unbelievable at an event we hosted last month! Everyone was overwhelmed at the talent!! Thank you so much Steve for keeping the guests so entertained!! Can’t wait to work with you again!!

Alice Mills, Event Organiser – Corporate Event, 2021

Steve is incredible!! Our guests absolutely loved seeing him, he blew our minds. Steve was personable and professional, impressing everyone from the grandparents to our eight-year-old nephew who he very kindly took under his wing as an assistant – made my nephew’s night. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He was fantastic working with us through numerous postponements due to COVID and genuinely cared about adding an extra special something to the event.

Kate Cross, Bride – New House Hotel Wedding, 2021

Steve was absolutely fantastic. Steve came to entertain our guests while we were having our photos at the wedding and the feedback from our guests was outstanding. He really is fantastic!!! thank you so much xx

Rebecca Jervis, Bride – Coach House Wedding, 2021

When Steve arrived, he was really friendly and he approached every table and made it friendly and personal, all the tricks where different and really amazing and shocked everyone from the little kids to the older adults the whole time he was there he was interacting with the guests, what a genuinely lovely guy. would recommend to people if you’re looking for something different and so worth it. thank you for helping us make our special day that bit more special x

Kirsty Treu, Bride – Cliff Hotel Wedding, 2021

Thank you, Steve, for providing your magical service at our wedding last weekend at the Vale Resort. All of our guests were WOW’d by you and have spoken very highly of the tricks you performed. The kids loved that you spent extra time with them teaching them a trick and I think we have budding magicians on our hands. We loved that you took time to take us aside to enjoy some tricks before we got caught up in the day too. Looking forward to the video of people’s reactions. We will definitely recommend you to others. Martyn is still in awe of the tricks you performed for us. Thank you.

Victoria Grey, Bride – Vale Resort Wedding, 2021

Steve came to our wedding. brilliant entertainment. The magic is unreal, such a lovely man. Everyone loved him, highly recommended.

Emma Bamsey, Bride – Court Colman Manor Wedding, 2021

Just want to say a massive thank you to Steve for providing entertainment during our wedding. Steve kept our all guests busy whilst we were taking lots of photos, and this kept the energy going before the wedding breakfast. Steve adapted his approach to the children and also adults and made lots of great memories and talking points for our guests. I really cannot recommend highly enough 5/5 and would book Steve again for entertainment
