Happy Birthday Rachel!

 

IMG_2837

I was delighted and very flattered when Jamie and Rachel asked me to perform magic at a very important birthday bash in Nottingham recently! The venue was the fantastic Botti Di Mamma in Hockley and it definitely was a memorable and magical occasion.

IMG_2839

Rachel’s family and close-friends were not only treated to the exquisite ambience and exceptional cuisine of this first class venue, but the talents of Nottingham musical quartet The Money ensured it truly was a fantastic evening. Jamie has known the band for many years and was delighted that they could be part of such an important event. They are always a massive hit wherever they perform!

IMG_2840

It was a privilege to mingle with such a warm and receptive group of people, and I was also delighted to perform a little customised magic for both Rachel and her father Brian. Indeed, it was very kind of Jamie and Rachel to invest their trust in me for such a big night, and I always hope that I can repay this in my performance.

A very important occasion calls for a very talented cameraman, and Will Slater was present in order to expertly capture the proceedings. As you can appreciate from the photographs proudly displayed in this article, Will’s timing, sixth-sense and attention to detail is immaculate.

IMG_2843

Overall, the party was a resounding success and friends and family partied well into the small hours! Happy birthday Rachel! And well done to everyone for helping to create such a tremendous occasion – I hope that you and Jamie had a great time in the USA.

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.

James’s Holy Communion Party at Bestwood Lodge

‘Fabulous day thank you David! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed your magic!!’

Lorraine Roberts, 9th June 2018

It was a massive privilege to perform magic at Bestwood Lodge for James’s First Holy Communion party. I was delighted when Mark and Lorraine (James’s Mum and Dad) contacted me after having seen a little of my magic several weeks before.

James’s family had travelled from far and wide to share in this once-in-a-lifetime occasion and everyone was in good spirits. It was a real pleasure to entertain everyone in the comfort of the bar area at this beautiful venue, and then continue with some table-side magic during the meal.

James 2
It was wonderful to entertain James and his family at Bestwood Lodge Hotel.

I always enjoy performing my parlour show of magic. This is a different style of magic and caters for a larger audience. To have an opportunity to deliver a special show after the meal for James, and his family and friends, was an exceptional experience indeed.

Congratulations to James on your First Holy Communion. And thanks again to Lorraine, Mark and all of the family for being such a fantastic group to entertain. I hope to see you all again in the future!
