Wedding magician in Gloucestershire
LOOKING FOR A MAGICIAN TO PERFORM AT YOUR WEDDING?
Looking to hire a close-up wedding magician
or wedding reception magician who can connect with your guests and make
sure they have a great time?
Close-up magic or table magic is perfect entertainment for your guests, the type of entertainment that suits ALL ages, and Richard has an easy-going natural charm suitable for any wedding. He has entertained and amazed thousands of wedding guests over the years at venues all over Gloucestershire, Cotswolds and further afield.
As an experienced magician Richard is a familiar face in many of Gloucestershire's most prestigious wedding venues and hotels (and castles!) and indeed often recommended to couples by many venues themselves. Based in Gloucestershire he is also able to travel to weddings anywhere in the UK on request and frequently travels to perform at weddings and events around the South West, Bristol, London, Warwick, Stratford-Upon-Avon and elsewhere. In 2015 Richard was awarded the title of 'Best Wedding Entertainer in the South West' at The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA).
WHY CHOOSE CLOSE UP MAGIC AS ENTERTAINMENT FOR YOUR WEDDING?
Magic has surpassed the days of the traditional 'top hat' and 'white rabbit' and has become incredibly popular with modern shows like Dynamo: Magician Impossible being shown around the world. As a form of entertainment it is perfect for a wedding reception, during the photos or visiting the tables at the wedding breakfast. Richard's magic suits all ages, requires no set up and can fit in with any part of your day. Whether people are standing with drinks or seated it doesn't matter, as a strolling magician Richard can move around the room, creating a buzz and greatly adding to your day. If you are busy with the photos, let Richard entertain your guests and you needn't worry about whether they are having a good time...you will hear the laughter and the gasps!
AWARD-WINNING WEDDING MAGICIAN
In 2015 Richard won the Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA) South West Wedding Entertainer of the year and went on to become a national finalist in London.
MAGIC AT YOUR EVENING RECEPTION
Close-up magic is ideal during the 'lull' after the meal and when your evening guests are arriving or if the guests are asked to vacate the room so that it can be turned around for the evening wedding reception. Richard can mix and mingle with ease and when he walks in he is ready to perform - there is no set up needed.
MAGIC DURING THE PHOTOS
Another ideal time for a magician at your wedding is during the photos after the ceremony - you will be busy having photographs and Richard can make sure that your guests are not only entertained but have something to talk about and laugh about together, bringing people together that may not know each other and making sure they all have something in common to share on the day.

WEDDING RECEPTION TESTIMONIALS
"Hi Richard, thank you so much for being
part of our wedding at Berkeley Castle last Saturday. Everyone thoroughly
enjoyed the magic, and you left a lot of people absolutely baffled!
My youngest son, Callum was your biggest fan! If you ever need any recommendations,
then please let me know. Anyone who is looking for a 1st class magician
- not only great magic but a great guy - then Richard is the guy for
you! Had everyone on the edge of their seats."
Julie & Steve, Berkeley Castle, Gloucestershire
"Such a lovely, warm and friendly guy
and so SO talented. My guests and I were blown away by him. Every trick
was a "how did he do that???" Reaction. From start to finish communication
was so easy- like working with an old friend. He was ready to start
on time and dressed very smart. He also got in touch after the wedding
which was lovely. Such an amazing talent and so lovely."
MRS RUTH WARRILOW
"From my first contact with Richard quite
frankly I loved everything about him. His enthusiasm, professionalism,
knowledge, empathy and all round happiness filled me with excitement
for our big day. On our wedding day we walked out of the ceremony and
one of the first people I saw was Richard with a huge smile on his face.
He never stops smiling. He's full of life without magic, but add the
magic and he creates a truly amazing atmosphere with his performance.
All our guests and us loved him!!"
MRS HANNAH BROWN, FOXHILL MANOR
"Richard is amazing at what he does. At
both my cousins wedding and my own the guests were mesmerized by what
he did! He was prompt when I made the first enquiry and made us feel
really relaxed in the run up to the wedding as he is really organised
and makes sure he has all the information he needs for the day. His
personality is outgoing, entertaining and funny. He asks guests names
and puts them at ease and most importantly makes them laugh...or leaves
MRS JOCELYN KENNEDY
"I just wanted to say a massive thank
you for Sunday. So many guests commented on the magic and we were really
pleased to have you with us. My sister especially was massively overexcited
and is desperate to hire you again for quite frankly anything she is
HANNAH GIFFIN, THE MATARA CENTRE, TETBURY
"Richard! We all thought you were awesome!!
No cheesiness, just genuine entertainment, and extremely clever entertainment
at that! Having you there added another dimension to the day and really
set the tone. Trina and Steve were chuffed to bits they booked you!
Thank you so much! Natalie x"
NATALIE ROLLS, EVENT MANAGER, BARNSLEY HOUSE AND SPA, CIRENCESTER
"Thank you SO much for last week! You
were the star of the show and we are immensely glad we booked you. Not
only is your work absolute class, but you're such a friendly genuine
guy too. You were such an asset and we will recommend you to everyone.
Thank you so much :)"
TRINA & STEVE, BARNSLEY HOUSE AND SPA, CIRENCESTER
has been a recommended supplier of mine for a long time. He is a great
magician and always entertains my clients and their guests. But that
isn't enough on its own, the fact he is reliable, offers a high level
of customer service and is just a great guy to know is why I recommend
him time and time again!"
