‘Wow! What can I say? David has completely changed my opinion of magic!’
Dean and Shirley’s wedding day, 8th July 2018, Bestwood Lodge Hotel
It was a massive privilege and a pleasure to be part of Dean and Shirley’s wedding celebrations on 8th July this year at the beautiful Bestwood Lodge Hotel. I was delighted when the lovely couple asked me to entertain their guests after the wedding breakfast period. Indeed, it was an additional bonus to have the opportunity to work alongside the exceptional Martin and Ellen Hoyle of Martelle Photography. I have known Martin for many years and this would truly be an evening to savour and remember.
Performing magic immediately after the wedding breakfast always allows me the opportunity to perform some very special magic for the newlyweds. I want to provide them with an everlasting experience and unforgettable memory from their special day. Martin and Ellen were expertly on hand to masterfully capture the action at the top table. It is always vital to start the evening with some high impact visual illusion and I was delighted by the reaction of Dean, Shirley and all of the guests.
Bestwood Lodge is one of the finest venues in the Nottingham area, and it was fantastic to entertain family and friends in the spacious and elegant bar area. This is an excellent area for close-up magic and I was also able able to perform some high-impact parlour effects for larger groups of people. On a wedding day all the generations are present and I thoroughly enjoyed entertaining everyone from grandparents to grandchildren.
Magic always helps to build an excellent bridge between both day and evening guests as we move into the latter stages of the wedding day. Dean and Shirley are a very popular couple, and naturally there were a lot of arrivals after 7pm who wanted to share this special moment with them. It really was a privilege to continue to mingle and perform my full repertoire of effects for everyone present.
