Naturally you will have a few questions about my performance, your big day and how the two things fit together. Normally this is where an FAQ section helps out and you’ll find one below but before you even bother to look at it please know that…
I will do everything possible (and sometimes impossible) to create the wedding you’ve always dreamed of.
It’s as simple as that. It’s also why I suggest we meet to have a chat about your day before you decide to book me. Simply contact me and I’ll give you a call to talk through your plans. Anyhow here’s the FAQ’s…
When would you perform?
I can provide my award-winning magic at any time during your big day (maybe not the ceremony). However there are times, between main events, when my magic can prove really invaluable. Popular times are between the ceremony and wedding breakfast (drinks reception), between the wedding breakfast and evening guests arriving or as the evening party begins. See the ‘Your Wedding‘ page for more detailed information.
How long would you perform for?
I suggest a minimum of two hours of close-up magic at most weddings. This is suitable for up to 120 guests. The reason I say 2 hours is because that’s usually the length of time of those ‘gaps’ between main events. See ‘Your Wedding‘ page.
Is the 'special trick' embarrassing?
Not at all. You’re in safe hands. This is between you and your loved one (and I’ll be there to!)… and the photographer… and anyone else you wish to watch! This is about creating a special moment that you’ll cherish and giving the photographer an awesome set of photo’s to share with you.
When should we look to book you?
ASAP! I know it sounds like a sales line but really it’s not. Currently I am taking bookings for 2016, 2017 and even 2018! There is only one of me and so if I’m booked then I’m booked and I’d hate to let anyone down so please do get in touch as soon as you can. (I’d suggest the same for all other live entertainment acts too!)
How can we book you?
What payment methods do you accept?
BACs is my preferred method and it’s easy for everyone. I like to keep things simple and hassle free.
Are you insured?
Where are you based?
I am based in Manchester (hence the web address) however I travel worldwide. I am yet to be booked for a wedding out of the UK but fingers crossed! Being central in the UK gives me great access to Cheshire, The Lake District, Yorkshire, Midlands, London and even further south!
How much do you charge?
As every wedding & every couple are unique, the best thing to do is contact me and we can have a chat about your requirements. If after a quick chat you like what you hear (and you probably will) then we can arrange to meet and discuss your plans in depth.
Do you charge travel expenses?
No and Yes. I’ll explain. Within my fee I include travel expenses up to a 70 mile radius from my location (Manchester City Centre). Any further than that and I add the HMRC value of £0.45p per mile. If this gets silly then I look at other options like trains, planes or boats. Obviously I’m not going to swim across the channel. If this works out cheaper then I’ll simply pass on the exact cost and provide receipts if necessary.
