perform at over 50 weddings a year.
No two weddings are the same and different couples use
magic in different ways. Some clients book close up
magic whilst other book our stage show. Here are some
examples of how both close up magic and stage magic can
Something that has become increasingly popular during
the evening reception is to stage an illusion show
before the wedding band or DJ starts. Slightly Unusual
can perform one of their full illusion shows and then
compare on the next act. A show can run from 20 minutes
to 45 minutes or more and ensures that absolutely no one
misses out on seeing the magic. Slightly Unusual can
even open the show by magically
producing the Bride or Groom on stage. Imagine
the look on your guests faces as your appear from
nowhere to start the evening. Clients regularly send us
feedback explaining the show they booked was the
highlight of their evening
and something they will never forget.
CLOSE UP MAGIC
1. During the photographs,
it is usual that most people are not directly involved
in having their picture taken and so they are often left
standing around, this is an ideal time to entertain with
close up magic.
2. Before the meal, there is often a
period where people are getting drinks and standing or
sitting around in small groups, again this is the ideal
time for mix and mingle magic as it makes the
perfect ice breaker.
3. Magic is also a perfect addition
to the wedding breakfast working between courses. It
helps to bring people together
who may have only met for the first time when they sit
down at the table a few moments before.
4. Close Up Magic works perfectly at
the start of the evening reception. Just as the evening
guests arrive is the perfect time as guests may be
standing around awkwardly and looking to be brought into
