What is your most memorable wedding?
Verona, Italy in September last year, gorgeous venue and the most lovely bride and groom, I always perform in rolled up sleeves and a waistcoat to avoid the "it's up your sleeve" issue but even with no jacket, this was a hot hot day and I was melting by the end of it, amazing to be part of it though.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
What about your business are you most proud of?
Repeat bookings and the feedback I receive, once I've performed at one event for somebody, they seem to want me back for any other events they have, I guess I'm really proud of that as it shows I must be doing something right. I also have 100% 5 start reviews on every platform that receives them so I'm pretty proud of that too I guess.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Get in early with your bookings, the best entertainers get booked up first so try and snap them up for your ideal time as soon as you can.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I performed at a wedding for a very musical couple, all of the tables were named after musicals and the seating plan was all play bills with the cast members being the people sat at that table, it was amazingly well done.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I like to have a chat about when magic would have the best impact on their day, see what would be their ideal and offer my knowledge to highlight that. We generally go from there.
What is your No. 1 top tip for keeping a crowd entertained?
Well that's quite complex, I started learning my craft as a street entertainer at the age of 14, I moved on from that by the age of 18 but day after day of performing for people is the only way to learn.
Where is the most memorable place you have performed?
Onboard the HMS Invincible for HRH Prince Charles
Have you had any interesting surprises at a wedding?
It's my job to create them so thousands :-)
What is your party trick?
Again, I have thousands but I think my favourite would be catching a spectator's card in my mouth
