How can Ian make your wedding a success?

Hiring Ian Lavin, wedding magician, is the perfect way to entertain your wedding guests. But when is the best time to hire him? Ian has performed at hundreds of weddings and feels that the following times are the most appropriate if you want to make the most of his services.


The drinks reception

Ian can make sure that your guests are having a great time at your wedding reception, while you are having your photographs taken.

The drinks reception usually lasts 1.5/2 hours and hiring Ian is a great way to ensure that your friends and family are enjoying themselves.

Ian will mingle with your friends and family, performing spectacular close up magic that is sure to get people talking!

Ian will perform magic with everyday items that he either carries in his pockets or borrows from people. He doesn't require a table or a specific area to perform in. This makes it the perfect form of entertainment for this type of environment.


The wedding breakfast

Why not provide your guests with some entertainment during the wedding breakfast?

Ian will perform close up magic in between courses at each table, leaving your guests amazed every time.

Close up magic is a great ice breaker if you have guests sat with people that they don't know. It is guaranteed to get people talking!

Table magic generates a fantastic buzz around the room and you will hear people clapping and cheering as he moves around your guests.

Ian will work with the staff at your venue to ensure that he doesn't interrupt the flow of the dinner service.


The evening reception

Close up magic is the ideal way to keep your guests entertained during the evening reception too.

Once the wedding breakfast is finished, your venue will usually want to change the room around for the evening reception.

This period is a great time to hire Ian as he can make sure that your guests are enjoying themselves while they wait next part of the day to begin.

Your evening guests will also really appreciate having some entertainment as they arrive and it will really kick start the evening for you and your guests.

Ian will circulate the room and make sure that everyone is having a fantastic time.


Ian can perform at any of these times or if your wedding day has a different timetable, Ian can tailor his services to suit your special day.
