A spectacular part of our wedding
Stephen was incredibly professional, flexible and communicative throughout the booking process, and was a spectacular part of our wedding. Stephen handled some complex scenarios during the event with dignity and respect, ensuring all that experienced his talents would have an incredible and indelible memory of his performance. Thank you Stephen for your time and efforts for our wedding, I hope to see you at future events.

"An instant hit with all of our guests"
Stephen is a MUST book for any event. He was our “mystery guest” at our wedding last week and he was an instant hit with all of our guests and was most definitely the star of the show all evening. His wide range of jaw-dropping talents have us all mesmerised and even had a special little routine just for my new husband and I which included a lovely keepsake momento of the whole day/evening for us to keep, which I won’t reveal so as not to spoil it for other couples. Will definitely be booking Stephen again for any event we hold in future!

Thank you, Stephen, for the memories, you helped create one of the best days of our lives.
Stephen Seabourne came to my wedding and it was the most incredible day. He wowed people with his card skills and mesmerised others with his coin tricks. Stephen is a friendly individual who is so easygoing, polite and just a great down to earth person. He had people looking on in awe at his display of magic. Stephen definitely was one of the biggest talking points of the day and still friends and family talk of how incredible he was. He definitely added the wow factor to our special day and we will be ever grateful for the buzz he created. I would recommend Stephen Seabourne to anyone who is having a special day and would like that extra piece of magic. Once again thank you Stephen for the memories you helped create one of the best days of our lives.

If you are looking for entertainment that has class and a guaranteed wow factor then look no further.
We first met Stephen at the Wedding Show where he blew us away with his magic and mind-reading! From then I knew we had to have him at our wedding. When booking, Stephen was so easy to talk to and went through any questions we had. I am so glad we booked you! From start to finish you wowed our guests and us with your knowledge and performances - our guests are still taking about you now. If you are looking for entertainment that has class and a guaranteed wow factor then look no further. We can’t thank you enough! Mr & Mrs Carroll x

Stephen was one of the highlights of the wedding
Stephen was one of the highlights of the wedding, some people are still convinced he is my friend from uni! His skills are unbelievable, everyone was mesmerised by his magic. He did a special piece just for us allowing us to take away a card to remind us of our special day, which was a really nice touch. I feel like everyone at the wedding was involved at some point and everyone has commented on just how amazing he was. Thanks again Stephen for making our day "magical".

What is your most memorable wedding?

A Luxury wedding at Hengrave Hall in 2017. The couple took the Mystery Guest Concept to the next level and dressed me as a Groomsman. Everyone bought into me being a part of the bridal party and I completely shocked everyone when I proceeded to entertain the whole wedding party with mind reading, magic and hypnosis.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Bespoke Stylish Modern Unique Unexpected

What about your business are you most proud of?

I am proud that I can change peoples perception of magicians and mind readers. No longer do magicians have to be overbearing, flamboyant and a bit cheesy. I can mix unknowingly amongst the wedding guests before surprising them with some astonishing effects. One of the most common quotes I receive is ; " I don't normally like magicians but you stole the show."

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Smart planning. 1) Set a budget (this more than likely will fluctuate but get a rough idea) 2) Decide on the important things first. Forget all the little extras that make your day special. Build the foundation of your wedding first. I recommend securing a church/registry along with your ideal venue first. Now you have secure time and dates allowing you to book other services. Next on my list would be my ideal photographer. Photographers come in all styles and price ranges but your perfect one is out there, you want to make sure you book them before anyone else. Similarly, the dress is up there with the next thing to sort out, however, this can and probably will take some time. Don't rush it but do try to get that worry off your mind early. 3) Now you have your wedding foundation, its time to build on it. Make a list of all the things your ideal wedding will have. I like to think of this in two different ways, visual and emotional. Visual planning - This involves all of the aesthetics of your wedding. What are you going to do on the day to make it look like the wedding you have always dreamt of. Emotional planning - This, for me, is one of the most important aspects. How do you want your guests to feel on the day? How do you want them to remember it and talk about it after? Think about the flow of your day, what do your guests have to do to keep them occupied when they are not eating, drinking or watching the speeches. There are a lot of ways to keep your guests engaged and entertained on your day. The Mystery Guest® is my solution to this problem
