Weddings, Christenings & Family Occasions
Imagine, you are organising a wedding or a party for a special occasion. As your guests arrive and at the dinner table Mark can entertain them with his close-up magic - it's a great ice-breaker and gets everyone talking.
Mark's award winning magic can provide great entertainment in the form of close-up, cabaret magic and children's magic shows.
For weddings it is not uncommon for Mark to be booked for the whole day and evening. During this time he can entertain your guest while the photographs are being taken during the drinks reception (1.5-2 hours normally), during the wedding breakfast between courses, into the evening with his cabaret show and even finish the night as your DJ.
The evening disco set up, suitable for most hotel function rooms etc.
If there are number of younger children Mark often takes them out during the wedding breakfast after they have eaten to be entertained with his children's show and mini disco; while the adults finish their meal and complete other formalities and the speeches. More information and a video clip can be seen on the children'schildren's parties page link at the top of this page.
With an all day option you have the flexibility of knowing that if the day is not running to time (which is quite normal) it does not really matter as Mark can adjust his timings during the day.
Mark can combine any of the entertainment he can provide at your function, but a good starting point is to call to discuss your day.
The cabaret show is a mixture of magic, mind reading and illusion and is a popular option to add to your celebrations. Mark can even put someone into his sword box and make a table float before your eyes!

Close-up magic is magic performed at tables or mingling as guests are standing with cards coins etc.
The children's / family show is ideal for ages 4-10, although quite often the adults enjoy it just as much!
There is a video clip of Mark performing for children on the children's party page and clip of some close-up magic on the close-up page link above.
By booking Mark you are hiring someone who can entertain all age groups so you can ensure everyone enjoys your day.
This is what Linda said:
Hi Mark - "We are just back from our honeymoon and want to say a big thank you for everything you did to entertain our wedding guests, young and not so young, at Down Hall on the 14th August. The whole day ran like clockwork and your switch from magician to DJ was seamless. Thanks again Mark and we would be very happy to recommend you to anyone looking for a very talented entertainer for any event they are planning -
Very best regards." Linda & Tommy, Hanslope, Buckinghamshire
