“After what felt like 10 minutes of silence, she nodded ‘Yes’ and cried… A lot… Hugged me.. Said ‘Yes’ and cried some more!”
Jonathon wanted Bora Bora (as mentioned below). Pamela wanted a family occasion. We wanted a location that could compromise for both families travel distance. Unfortunately after 6+ months of searching we only found venues in the region (Gloucestershire/Worcestershire/Monmouthshire/Cheshire) that suited which either cost the price of a semi detached or wanted the cost of a semi detached just for the privilege of being the only wedding present on the day. We didn’t want to be part of a conveyor-belt. We wanted an outdoor family gathering with a backdrop. The Inn on the Lake in Cumbria reared its head 3 times in as many days and ticked all of our boxes.
“Pamela wanted a party. She is a social menace. She wanted a weekend of music and magic. Or to quote our friend Liz – “Magiciary.”
Why did you decide to book Sam & how did you find him?
Pamela went hunting after we saw a magician at a wedding fair in Cheltenham. She found the National Wedding Industry Awards and checked out Sam’s website & video.. She came home ecstatic about this amazing magician and how we just had to book him!
She picked up Sam’s passion for magic and making people happy and she said Sam spoke as if he were ‘a best friend’. That he wasn’t just trying to sell a product and take peoples money. Sam genuinely spoke as if he was an old friend and everything clicked. We have had our fair share of transactional relationships with people whilst wedding hunting, so Sam was a very very welcome breath of fresh air!!
From the first phone call with Pam & Jonathon I knew I wanted to be be a part of their wedding. I could tell it was going to be fun, lively and set to that stunning lake district backdrop. A big thank you to all of their guests for being on top form and having a right good bit of fun with me! It’s been an absolute pleasure to be a an Inn on the Lake magician today and be part of such a spectacular day.
A massive congratulations to Pam & Jonathon, I wish them both all the very best for the future!
