Last update: February 2024

Thank you very much for looking at my profile. My name is Kurtis Whitehead (The Ginger Magician), and I am a Wedding Entertainment Specialist. My aim is very simple... to make your special day stress-free and ensure that all your guests are thoroughly entertained and left with everlasting memories. I am a member of the prestigious Magic Circle, so you can rest assured that you are in good hands when it comes to my magic.

As well as being a magician, I'm also a wedding MC, which I've been doing at weddings all over the world for over ten years.

I offer 3 packages:

  • Simply Magic
  • Half day MC
  • Full day MC

Now, a question I get asked more than any other is, what exactly is a wedding MC?!

After performing at literally 100s, if not 1000s, of weddings, I noticed how important the toastmaster or MC is to the overall success of the wedding day. Now, often, the MC will be an old retired guy in a red coat, supplied by the venue, who's basically going through the motions and constantly banging a gavel!! Or even worse than that, a reluctant member of staff who has been delegated as it's their turn to do your grand entrance into the room, and then have to make all your important, key announcements for the rest of the day, like introducing your speeches, cake cutting, and finally, of course, your first dance.

Now, although they may do an OK job, as your professional magical wedding MC, I offer a better service tailored just for you because I'm working for you.

The difference is that I liaise with the venue but don't work for the venue.

I'm there to welcome you and your guests and keep everyone entertained while the photographs are being taken. This is a great way to bring people together, creating laughs and gasps and putting people at ease for some brilliant photo opportunities.

Then, I introduce all the key stages of your day, like your grand entrance, with your ideal music choice planned in advance. I ensure everyone's in the right place at the right time, keeping your day flowing so you can relax knowing your wedding will not only be successful but exceptional and remembered for all the right reasons.

Once a booking is confirmed, I work very closely with you so firstly I can fully understand your vision for the day. Then, using my wedding party details form and run sheet that I supply, we discuss:

  • How you would like to be introduced
  • Your music choices
  • The bridal party
  • Are there any special announcements?
  • Does anybody need some special attention?
  • The demographic
  • If you have a theme
  • Other entertainment options
  • Your other suppliers
  • And much more

Throughout the whole planning process, I can liaise with the venue, your wedding coordinator or planner; I can attend meetings in person or over Zoom, so together, we can plan your day to perfection.

So, if you would like a wedding that's remembered long after your big day is over, one that comes with an impeccably organised MC who'll make all the announcements, keep your day perfectly planned, AND entertain your guests along the way. I am the person for you.

The Ginger Magician is a wedding magician and MC based in Watford, Hertfordshire.

Amazing service!

Booking with Kurtis was very easy and he was brilliant with communication and keeping us informed.
He arrived on the day in great time, was friendly, a pleasure to deal with and was loved by all of our guests.
We would highly recommend booking him for your event!
Thanks so much for making our wedding day extra special x
