Frequently asked questions

For adults

What is included in the wedding package?

Prices are usually quoted based on a 2 hour performance time. For the fee, I will turn up to the venue and mingle with your guests during the drinks reception, or approach each table and perform some mesmerising magic literally inches away from them!

How far in advance should I contact you?

As soon as possible! Most brides get in touch 9 - 12 months in advance, however if your wedding is on a special date (bank holiday, christmas etc) make sure you get in touch asap! I am can sometimes fit in last minute bookings too, however you may need to be willing to have some flexibility in the performance times so I can fit you in!

Do you need specific materials or conditions to offer your service?

Per event

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?


How do you charge extra time?

As mentioned earlier, fees are usually based on a 2 hour performance, however if you have too many guests to be able to perform to in 2 hours, I can quote extra time on the fee, or for much larger functions I can also book a second magician on your behalf

Absolutely Wizard

From first speaking to Mark to seeing him on the day, this man has been one of a kind. He's so funny and clever and it was like he was part of the family. Everyone raved about him and my husband and I couldn't have been happier with the service that Mark offered. Beautiful man inside and out. 100% would recommend, thank you so much Mark, we miss you already.
