Hi, I am Chris a magician, entertainer, and emcee from Devon.

Magic is the perfect icebreaker at weddings, getting everyone laughing and mingling as well as keeping the energy high throughout the day. This can be close-up magic during breakfast, a show before or after the speeches, or even something different in the evening to keep the energy going till the first dance!

With over 10 years of experience, I have performed for hundreds of couples on their special day, providing fantastic entertainment and hosting that you and your guests will remember for years to come!

There are some critical times during your special day that are ideal for having close-up magic entertainment. Let me break it down.

Drinks Reception Entertainment

This is the most popular time for some entertainment. You have had the ceremony. You are now married; congratulations!

Now you and your partner will be busy taking photos, taking in the ceremony, and having a breather.

Your guests will usually now head to the bar to grab a drink and socialise, which is where close-up magic can really make a difference, breaking the ice between the families and your friends and keeping the energy high for your guests until the start of the wedding breakfast.

The Turnover

The Turnover is the tricky bit after the Wedding Breakfast but before the Evening Reception. This is normally around 2-3 hours and is an often overlooked part of the day where finding something to keep your guests entertained can be difficult.

Personally, I love the turnover; everyone is relaxed and feeling full after the meal, so it can be the perfect time to enjoy some expert sleight-of-hand entertainment!

This also has the added benefit of getting the wedding party restarted, ready for the evening, and into the small hours of the morning!

All Day Packages

If you are having a larger wedding party, you can have me perform all day! This has the added benefit of having me perform my award-winning stage show for your wedding as a warm-up for the speeches!

If you need more information on any of the wedding entertainment options, then just pop your details into the contact form below to get the ball rolling; I can’t wait to hear from you.

I now only perform at a limited number of weddings per year, and my calender can fill up very quickly, especially during peak wedding times. So as not to miss out, pop your details into the form below, and we can have a chat!

The perfect addition to our celebration

We were lucky enough to win a performance from Chris at our wedding in 2019, after meeting him at a wedding show. He stayed for hours on the day and discreetly mingled with guests to entertain with his various card magic and illusion skills. I just wish we'd been able to spend more time with him and our surprised guests on the day! It added the perfect touch to our gathering and we'd certainly recommend Chris as an ideal events performer.

Really great entertainment

We hired Chris for our wedding reception party this summer and couldn't have been happier. His magic tricks were really clever and he was very generous with his time. Would definitely recommend.

Amazing, mesmerising, fantastic, brilliant

Chris was so personable, charming, and made sure everyone got to see his amazing magic. Everyone still talks about Chris at our wedding till this day, me and my husband got married 8 years ago, so this really shows that Chris is incredibly memorable! A true professional and an absolutely lovely guy.

Brilliant magic that amazed both old and young!

Chris arrived on time and entertained ourselves and our guests with his amazing tricks! He was very happy to repeat a few of his magic tricks for the little ones on our special day. Would definitely recommend! Brilliant entertainment and something for everyone!
He was very happy to come at a time we chose but also gave us ideas on what he’d done in the past that had worked well.
