Close-up Magician Specialising in Weddings, Private Parties & Corporate Events.

Welcome to Steve Taylor Magic

Close-up magic is a unique form of entertainment. While most people have seen magicians performing on television, few have experienced the wonder of witnessing close-up magic performed live.

Close-up magic can really make your event stand out if you hire the right magician, and Steve is the right magician. Whether he is mingling with your guests at a drinks reception or strolling between tables during a meal, he will ensure that everyone will have a memorable and magical time at your event.

We booked Steve for our Wedding in May 2019. So often people book Wedding entertainers to help with the “lull” between the day and evening celebrations. Needless to say not one single guest was able to find a lull in our day and that was down to the fantastic work of Steve. Upon arriving he came to see us as the Bride and Groom and we found this to be a very nice touch. He mingled effortlessly with our guests, moving between the tables during courses and then keeping everyone entertained until the evening celebrations were well underway. His magic is spectacular, I’ve seen a few magicians over the years but Steve was by far the most entertaining and performed magic that I had never seen before. All of our guests commented on how fantastic he was and their reactions on camera just show how amazed they were! Steve even came to do a private set of tricks for just my Husband and I which was lovely as we then got to see his magic up close. My only wish is that I had followed Steve round more at the tables to see more of his work! If you are thinking of booking Steve for any event, why haven’t you done it already?!

I don’t recommend you book Steve for your wedding I INSIST you book him, everyone who came to our wedding was amazed at how good he was & he really made our day extra special. On top of that he is such a lovely guy, I just wish I could have seen more of his magic but being the groom, I was quite busy! But fair play to him twice he made a special effort to get me and my wife for a personal session which we absolutely loved. I honestly can’t recommend Steve highly enough and I can’t put into words just how grateful we are to have him share our special day with us. If you’re thinking about booking a magician don’t even consider anyone else because they won’t be as good as Steve Taylor.

Chris Kentish, Groom – Quantock Lakes, Wedding 2019

Steve was brilliant at our wedding and amused and amazed all of our guests. He was so kind and patient with the children who followed him around like the Pied Piper and spent far more time than we expected, never ceasing to make sure everyone was thoroughly entertained! We had some fantastic feedback and have seen some hilarious pictures of our friends, open mouthed at his tricks. Thanks Steve for being a part of what was an amazing day for us. You were great!
