Testimonials

“𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐃𝐢𝐝 𝐇𝐞 𝐃𝐨 𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐭?” are the words I kept on hearing!! 😁 Everyone at our wedding, both young & old, were amazed by Steve’s tricks. So much so, he was still the topic of conversation the next day!!! 😂 …Go Steve!!! 🙌🏼 It’s fair to say Steve was fantastic throughout the whole process (from booking right to the main event). Everything ran so smoothly and he even found time to perform a few tricks on the day for my husband & I, which was such a nice touch! 🥰 Thank You!!!

Steve is personable and professional, and I would not hesitate to recommend his brilliant act to anyone looking for an entertainer. A solid 10/10 from us! 🙌🏼

ASHLEY TROW, GROOM – LLECHWEN HALL HOTEL WEDDING, 2022

Can’t recommend Steve enough!! We originally saw him at my friend’s wedding and HAD to ask him for his details for our wedding!! Everyone has commented on what a fantastic magician he is and how they want to book him – even though they have no wedding to book him for (birthdays?!)! The photo attached just shows how amazing he is and how much you really won’t regret booking him! Thank you so so much again! We had a blast and you made everyone left speechless! ?Hope to see you again!!

SOPHIE BOWEN, BRIDE – LLANERCH VINEYARD WEDDING, 2022

Steve is EXCELLENT! Keeps the crowd on the edge of their seats. We met Steve at a friend’s wedding in 2021 and he was that good we booked him straight away for our wedding for July 2022! If you’re reading this message and looking to book a magician for an event this is the sign to book Steve. You will not be disappointed! We had so many great comments from our guests. Thanks so much Steve – it was great to have you share our special day with us x Mr and Mrs Latimer.

BETHAN LATIMER, BRIDE – GILESTON MANOR WEDDING, 2022

We booked Steve following a recommendation for our Year 6 leavers prom and boy did he not disappoint. Steve was our special guest- and the kids absolutely loved him! 
He was incredible with the children, and to see their faces light up with the magic was awesome. Even a slight hiccup of a fire evacuation didn’t stop him- he continued to entertain the children outside when we knew we had everyone there safely. Steve was warm, funny and brilliant to watch.
I cannot thank Steve enough for making it a truly MAGICAL night. Absolutely brilliant! ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

DANI BOAT, PARTY ORGANISER – VILLAGE HOTEL (SWANSEA), 2022

Well, I’ve always loved a magician but was never lucky enough to see the talent for real. a few weeks before the wedding we found the extra for Steve whose promo videos we watched daily feeling sorry for ourselves accepting we would never know what the red nose was. on the day when he arrived a guest told me, and I didn’t have a clue what to do after finding 2 minutes peace in the corner ?. I go outside and Steve’s entertaining, straight in laughing and joking. my guests loved every part. he tried to take me and hubby for a little showing and even then, the guests couldn’t stay away and followed us raving about the amazing magician lol. Steve you really kicked the evening off. everyone was buzzing and still are now. the whole ‘I’ve seen it all see but that crunchy I will never know’ is most talked about. top bloke I will never tire of the tricks. Worth every penny and I think the kids now want you at every family gathering for the rice krispies and milk. gutted I feel I didn’t have time to speak to Steve much but il be booking again. he had me smiling, laughing, and showed pure showmanship when I did get a chance. thanks Steve

SARAH LOUISE, BRIDE – BALTIC INN WEDDING, 2022

Booked Steve for my wedding in July so we could fill in the ‘turning the room around’ drinks period for our guests to enjoy. We knew he’d be good but had no idea he would be the talking point of our wedding!  Steve was incredible! He was so kind and took time to see all our guests, and even came back around to some a few times. Steve was in no rush at all to leave (thank God because we couldn’t get enough!), and when we asked if he could do one more trick for an evening guest, he did so without hesitation and a massive smile on his face. Every single guest mentioned how amazing he was, and I had about 4 guests ask for his details as they want to book him! Best decision we made was to book Steve. His tricks left us all gobsmacked and wanting more. Thank you so much for coming to our wedding and adding that icing on top of the cake! ❤️

AMELIA CHRISTOPHER, BRIDE – TOWERS HOTEL WEDDING, 2022

Steve performed at our wedding on July 15th at DeCourceys Manor. He absolutely blew our guests away, the magic tricks were fantastic and had everyone amazed, laughing and kept us guessing how he turned paper into gin, playing cards into sweets and magically personalising playing cards with our names on. The children at the wedding couldn’t stop excitedly telling each other how amazing the tricks were, whilst having adult guests in stitches of laughter and guessing how he did it. We would absolutely highly recommend Steve he’s a fantastic touch to a wedding or event. 

Thank you so much again Steve you were amazing!

SARAH TRIGG, BRIDE – DECOURCEYS MANOR WEDDING, 2022

We were lucky enough to have Steve to be the magician for our wedding in May 22.

Prior to booking Steve, we looked at magicians within the magic circle, though we didn’t feel they had the x factor and extra special touch that Steve did. we are so glad we made the right decision! We originally booked Steve in 2020 and had to change the date twice, Steve was more than accommodating and happily changed the date twice with no issues.

Steve was punctual, reliable, and friendly throughout and his communication was fantastic despite the pandemic, nothing was too much trouble for him. He was also very patient and accommodating when our schedule ran over on the day and we were essentially ‘late’ for the times we had booked Steve, he did not mind at all, and nothing was too much trouble for him.

Now what can be said but wow, this man is so incredibly talented, not just with his magic but his personality and charisma and to be honest everything he does. He is so personable!  It is for very good reason he has won many awards for his talents! Everyone at our wedding loved and enjoyed Steve, they were baffled by his magic, and he made many laughs he is a funny guy.

He paid extra special attention to my husband and I, performing the first and last trick for us and spending extra time with us, performing unique tricks, making our day amazing! 

He was able to perform his tricks based on his audience, there were children at our wedding, and they also loved his tricks. Fortunately, our day was so special and perfect, we honestly feel Steve helped make it just that and it would not have been the same without him! His prices are also very reasonable and good value, he provides a great video of the reactions of the guests too which was an amazing extra touch.

We are all still talking about him and his magic more than a month after our wedding and still discussing/trying to work out some of his tricks! This says it all really.

I definitely 100% would recommend Steve and his talents to everyone and would not hesitate to book him again. Thank you so much for everything Steve.

SARAH STEPIN, BRIDE – CANADA LODGE & LAKE WEDDING, 2022

A huge thank you to Steve for being at our wedding on the 25/06/22, it was a last-minute booking, and I am so glad he was part of our day. Steve was so lovely and so fun entertaining everybody and he was absolutely fantastic with my 4-year-old daughter Aria who was in awe of him and followed him round for the whole time he was there. The tricks and reactions were fantastic, thank you so much I can’t recommend you enough! Xx

EMMA MASON, BRIDE – TOWERS HOTEL WEDDING, 2022

We booked Steve for our wedding back in 2020 and unfortunately it was postponed due to covid. After 2 postponed dates we finally tied the knot on Saturday. Steve was so understanding and lovely through all the difficulties and he made our wedding day a day to remember. His work is incredible, and all our guests loved him! We would definitely recommend Steve to anyone who is looking to book a magician for their wedding or any event. He worked the room/guests well and it was perfect for keeping everyone entertained. Thank you again Steve! We can’t wait to see some more photos and videos of everyone’s reactions. 5 stars ⭐️

SOPHIE LEWIS, BRIDE – BEAR HOTEL WEDDING, 2022

100000% recommend!!

We booked Steve back in 2020 for our wedding which was supposed to be in 2021, bur due to covid, we had to reschedule. Steve was the most understanding and reassuring supplier we had booked, by far! He was genuinely so lovely about it, and nothing was too much trouble! I also accidently transferred Steve £200 (meant for another Steve – so I hadn’t even realised) and he messaged me to make me aware and asked for my details, so he could send it back 

Fast forward to our wedding day which was last Saturday. Steve was AMAZING! He was so talented, funny & kind, everyone loved him! I had non-stop questions and compliments about him and his performance. There’s many things I regret spending money on for the wedding looking back, but my God Steve was worth every single penny!

Thank you Steve for brightening everyone’s day and creating unforgettable memories for us, our children & our guests! 

STACEY STEVENSON, BRIDE – TREADAM BARN WEDDING, 2022
