Close-Up Magic creates a collective experience that brings your guests together. It creates laughs and smiles and livens up those wedding lulls, creating an environment where Brides & Grooms can enjoy their day!
An excellent Close-Up Magician can provide the perfect entertainment. Steve will mix and mingle through the reception as people are stood with drinks so that guests are never bored, ensuring they will have a brilliant time. Then, he can perform at the tables, between the courses, so that all your guests will have plenty of fun and lots to chat about. Steve has won the following awards…
– ’Best Magician 2019, 2020 & 2021’ at the Best of Welsh Wedding Awards.
– ‘The Brilliance Award 2021’ at the Best of Welsh Wedding Awards.
– ‘Best Wedding Entertainment 2019’ at the Welsh National Wedding Awards.
Booking a quality Close-Up and Table Magician adds a unique form of entertainment to your event, helping to ensure that your guests are kept amused and entertained whilst the room is energised with laughter, excitement, wonder and anticipation. Award winning magic is an ideal contrast to the razzmatazz of the day’s proceedings and is the perfect centre-piece attraction or ‘filler’. Steve can perform just as effectively during a drinks reception, or outside at a garden party where everyone is standing with glasses in their hands. Wherever your guests are able to go, he will be able to entertain them and guarantees they will be royally entertained on the day and talk about it for many years to come.
To add a memorable and unique twist to Steve’s routine, he is also able to record the “wows” and gasps of your guests with a GoPro camera, giving you the opportunity to witness his magic from a different perspective. This is done at no extra cost.

Wedding Reception & Photo Period

Steve’s magic is an ideal icebreaker during pre-reception drinks and while photos are being taken after the ceremony. You’ll return from your photo shoot to find your guests buzzing with excitement.

It gives both families and friends something to talk and laugh about while they are waiting for the evening’s proceedings, keeping them energised and socialising.

Wedding Breakfast

His skilful Close-Up Magic can also be presented subtly around tables during your wedding breakfast. His experience means he understands how to incorporate magical entertainment into this part of your day whilst being very sensitive to other things going on. Whether you’ve got speeches at the start or the end of the breakfast, Steve can fit in around the celebrations.


He’s worked a lot of venues and collaborates professionally with waiting staff and won’t interrupt your guest’s enjoyment of their meal.

Evening Reception

Maybe it’s mix and mingle magic you require later on as guests relax for the evening. Give your evening a truly magical touch in the lead up to your first dance as Steve moves amongst your guests, astounding them with magic up close and personal.

Steve understands that your wedding may include guests of all ages and will adapt his style to suit his audience, so don’t worry, everyone from the youngest to the oldest guest will be entertained.
