Hire a Wedding Magician to perform on your special day…
Wedding Magician and mind reader Edward Crawford has been performing his close up act and cabaret show at weddings throughout the UK for the past fifteen years. Whether you require a wedding magician during the drinks reception, the wedding breakfast or as part of the evening celebration Edward will tailor his act to suit your purposes and deliver the ideal wedding day entertainment. Edwards unique blend of magical mind reading and humor will bring an unforgettable performance to your wedding.
When hiring an entertainer for your wedding you need to ensure they are both experienced and professional. It’s very easy to set up a website claiming expertise but it makes it very difficult to judge who would be the best performer for your wedding. Edward is very fortunate to have a number of high profile venues use him as their sole magician for weddings. In 2017 Edward was awarded the Lux wedding magazine best magic act for the year and in 2018 was awarded the Global Wedding Awards Best Wedding Guest Entertainer. Each year Edward performs at over 150 events and approximately 50 of those will be at weddings. Over the last year Edward set up a Facebook account (he’s not much of a user of social media!) to showcase photos and reviews from some of these shows.

Hopefully this will give you an idea of the number and style of events Edward is performing at each year and the quality of his performance as a leading wedding entertainer.
Edward views every wedding as truly unique and will tailor his performance to fit in with your perfect day. This can include a combination of his close up act, cabaret show and table magic. With out a doubt close up magic is the most popular performance style at a wedding as it’s relaxed, informal and a great way to bring people together. Edward always likes to end a close up performance with a special routine for the Bride and Groom, this can be for everyone to watch and is a perfect and a memorable way to end a show as it demonstrates the love the bride and groom have for one another.
The most popular period to perform at a wedding is during the drinks reception, as people arrive after the ceremony and whilst photos are being taken. During this time a lot of people who aren’t involved in the photos will be standing around for an hour or two and close up magic is the perfect way to keep them entertained and help bring together people who may not have met before. The only problem during this period is that the bride and groom are often rushing around, having pictures taken and greeting guests. Edward will always ensure he finds a quiet moment to perform something special for them both even if it means staying a little later.
A performance of table magic during the wedding breakfast is another really popular choice, this can be combined with the drinks reception. During this period Edward will perform a private show at each table, ensuring everyone at the table is involved in stunning feats of mind reading and contemporary magic. Of course a special routine will be performed for the Bride and Groom and this can be a piece form Edward’s cabaret show for all the guests to watch, something they will never forget. For smaller more intimate weddings Edward has a dinner show for this period. This is basically Edward’s stage show performed on a much smaller scale. Edward will perform for all the guests at once, usually between the courses of the meal involving all the audience members in the show. A truly unique form of entertainment for a wedding and something that will never be forgotten.
The final popular period for entertainment during your wedding is at the start of the evening reception, after the breakfast as the evening guests arrive. Once again close up magic is the ideal performance for this time as it keeps things casual and it is a fantastic way to greet your evening guests. This can though be quite a busy period for a wedding with dancing, cake cutting and general merriment so do please check with Edward for further advice about performing during this time. Ultimately Edward can perform during any and all of the periods of your wedding. He always likes to have a chat on the phone with you before deciding anything so you can agree on the perfect entertainment for your wedding and ensure you and your guests will have the perfect day.
Combining contemporary magic and Jedi mind skills, Edward’s style of psychological illusion produces one of the most extraordinary acts you will ever witness.Whilst Edward’s act differs from your more traditional forms of magic, it is commonly seen as the most genuine and meaningful of the magical genres. Edward will engage your guests in feats of mind reading, telekinesis (moving objects with your mind), and psychological deceptions, that will leave even the most cynical with a sense of wonder. If you are looking for a refined, erudite, emotional and stunning form of entertainment Edward’s act will be perfect for your wedding.
No matter what your requirements Edward’s unique act will be tailored to guarantee an unforgettable experience. If you have any questions or wish to book a close up wedding magician, please contact Edward to find out how he will make your event truly memorable.
