You were awesome!
We had Stephen come to our wedding. He was a great addition to the day and slipped silently into the crowd wowing our guests. Everyone couldn’t stop talking about him and I’m sure lots of business cards were handed out. Maybe we’ll see him at a wedding in the future! Thank you for being a part of our day, you were awesome!!!

All our guests loved it!
Stephen Was amazing throughout, due to Covid this was our fourth wedding date and he had been super helpful each time and would help recommend suppliers. I originally booked him from a wedding show that we went to in 2018 and there was lots of magicians and he definitely stood out among the rest especially when he read my mind and I still don’t know how he managed to do that! All our guests loved it, it was nice to have that entertainment during the photos and the bits that can usually be a bit boring for the guests :) Thank you Stephen it was great to have you be a part of our day (Finally!)

Stephen was phenomenal! 100 out of 10
How can I summarise the amazing Mystery guest? The most friendly, kind and genuine person we’ve ever met? The most talked about person of our wedding? I mean seriously…how did he do that? If I could give 100 out of 10 I would. Our guests have not stopped talking about Stephen. We have not stopped talking about Stephen! We first met Stephen at one of the first wedding fayre’s we went to and we were totally blown away by his skills. We booked Stephen back in 2019 prior to the pandemic. Stephen has been such a huge help and support throughout wedding planning including during the pandemic. His communication and admin skills are just as outstanding as his amazing magic. Stephen sent us a wedding run sheet which was so helpful to get organised and have a document which could be shared between key people. Stephen was phenomenal on the day. He interacted with our huge wedding of 150+ guests. He made sure to get round to as many people as he possibly could. Everybody was totally amazed. With a big wedding there were lots of long periods throughout the day, which Stephen filled with brilliant entertainment. He went from table to table throughout our wedding breakfast and entertained guests during our drinks reception and room turn around. Stephen - thank you thank you thank you. We are so happy we found you and you were a part of our wedding. We have memories to last a lifetime. Thank you for taking so much stress away in the run up to the wedding. Future brides and grooms, event planners book now, don’t hesitate. Our only regret was not having a photographer for longer to take more photos! Huge love from James and Katy Melia

Our guests could not stop talking him!
We booked Stephen in 2019, which seems a lifetime ago, after he wowed us at a wedding fair. We booked him for our whole wedding day. He was a massive hit and our guests could not stop talking about how amazing he was and they are still talking about him over a month later. We would highly recommend Stephen!

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.

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
