Magic for Weddings - entertainment by magician Malta

If you plan on marrying in Malta, or anywhere in the world for that matter, then remember the following words. Your Wedding Day is unique. You will never relive the day again! However what makes your day special are the memories it will create, for you and your guests. Everyone wants the best food, the best ambient and the best dress but what really matters is the experience. Memories are made up of various elements including the things we mention above. Then there are the other important elements that too make and leave memories. These include the photography, video and of course the entertainment for your wedding.  Close Up magic is a great choice for your wedding entertainment in Malta or anywhere in the world.

Considering Your Choices

Making it different for YOU and YOUR guests is important but making it memorable and unforgettable, is even more important. Consider your choice of entertainment as one of the most important elements of the day when it comes to planning your wedding reception. There are many types of entertainment that you can choose for a wedding. One that is often overlooked, is magic up close. However trends are changing and people are becoming more open to this kind of entertainment. Magic is a different wedding entertainment option available for you to take advantage of anytime, anywhere.

Here is an article written by Brian Role` when he first introduced the service in Malta still valid in today’s times:

In many countries, it is now popular to hire a magician to entertain guests during a wedding. A good magician offers a something unique, a personal experience through a well thought of magic performance. Hiring the right magician can make your event even more enjoyable and memorable for you and your guests. For weddings, Close Up Magic, is the a great option to entertain guests both at sit down receptions or stand up receptions.

Different Wedding Entertainment

Magic At Close Quarters

Close Up Magic can have individuals or a small group of people witness the magic happen at a close proximity. This kind of magic can also happen in the guests’ hands, leaving an amazing personal experience. In the hands of a professional, the performance will leave a good impact on the guests. Knowing who, when and how to hire a magician for your special day does require a little planning. Essentially one must acquire the best option available basing their choice between budget and balance.

A few tips you may use.
Find a true professional magician:
A magician with a track record of professional performances, worldwide, ensures you are engaging a professional.
Do not be afraid to ask for references:
Do be sure that the magician can provide a true track list of professional performances on his website or by other means.
A wide choice of quality magic: 
Some magicians may be very proficient at cards tricks and that is what they may only provide during their performances. But different people like different things and not everyone will be entertained by a card trick. They may prefer trick with other objects, such as coins, rings and other things much more.
The Most Important Factor Is Your Guests:
When booking a magician keep in mind that you are not booking for a magician with a great ego. You are looking for a magician who wants to excel in order to entertain your guests. The main intention is to make your day successful and memorable for those experiencing it for many years to come.
Book a Quality Magician:
Find someone who is a current member of a reputable international magic association. The largest magician’s society, is the International Brotherhood of Magicians. However there are more prestigious societies that require more quality during their admission of membership, such as the Magic Circle. Auditioning is set before a panel of highly qualified magicians who admit the candidate exclusively on the abilities and standard of the magician. This assures you that the magician is of standard and of good ethical conduct. Base your choice on credibility and quality, not on quantity. Remember this is one of the most important life events in your life.
The right magician will add a sense of wonder and excitement to make a memorable wedding day unforgettable for you and your guests in a unique manner.
Strolling Magic and Table Magic

The two most popular forms of wedding magic are: stand up or strolling close up magic and table magic. There are other options that may be suitable for the event and the magician may offer you these as a choice. It is normal for the magician to provide something special exclusively for the Wedding Couple or top table

I will now break down the two styles of magic I mention above for you to understand. During stand up receptions, the magician strolls and mingles with guests. The magician will use a style that is interactive for a small group of people while capturing their attention throughout. Whereas for a sit down lunch or dinner, the magician entertains the guests at their table. The performance may be a short mini show with a series of magic effects to make the experience personal to the whole table.

Magic During Photoshoots At Weddings

In other instances, the magician may also provide magic during photo shoots. Those awaiting their turn to have a photo taken with the newly weds can enjoy some amazing entertainment during that grey time.

The presence of a magician can turn those dull moments into moments of excitement, amazement and entertaining fun. A great wedding magician will make it memorable for them.

The Adequate Durations Of Engagement

It is normal to book a magician for around two hours to cover around 100 people sitting or around 200 standing. However there are times where the magician may have to remain longer or shorter periods to ensure the best service for the clients.

In some cases, magicians can be hired to entertain the children present for the wedding.  It is normal for guests to share their memories and experience of your wedding day with others for years to come. Do make it memorable for them!
