While most adults enjoy attending a wedding reception, it can prove a little tiresome for the children. A wedding magician is the perfect solution and is perfect for example, during photo sessions and speeches to keep the children occupied and amused.

If the venue has a separate area/room available, this makes a great place where the wedding magician can entertain the children while all the ‘boring’ bits are happening. This means that the children can enjoy the wedding event as much as the adults, and they too will have special memories of the happy day.

As a professional wedding magician, Gary’s entertainment is not restricted to children. Gary provides magic for the grown-ups during photos, or the wedding breakfast, or as the room is on change-over for weddings in Scotland, covering Edinburgh and the Lothians.
