Wedding Magician: It’s the biggest and most memorable day in your life; you’re contemplating hiring a close up magician? All you’ve found so far are people who’ve bought a few ‘tricks’ down the local magic shop and call themselves magicians? Do you really want to hire a dodgy old guy who wears a flashing bow tie and hassles your guests? I didn’t think so!

Craig is one of the UK's most sought after wedding magicians, as he can really add that extra sparkle to your big day, helping you transform your wedding from ordinary to memorable. Craig is a vastly experienced wedding magician, having performed at hundreds of weddings throughout the UK and Europe! As Craig as your wedding magician, you are guaranteed that your wedding will stand out above all others.

Craig can entertain the children and even teach them a few tricks to keep them occupied for hours, leaving you to enjoy your special day and not worry about the little rascals!

Craig can help your wedding run smoothly and efficiently by entertaining your guests, in a manner of different ways.

During the photographs
'Ahhhhhh', the wedding photos, a visual reminder of the most perfect day of your life, you’ve been dreaming about them for years. Quite often the photos can take a few hours, which can leave a few guests standing around. This is the perfect opportunity for Craig to intermingle with your guests and keep them entertained with his subtle sleight of hand and loveable personality.

Wedding Breakfast
Organising your seating plan can be a stressful time, trying to arrange it so your guests are seated next to somebody they know, or ’hopefully’ get on with! Usually you end up with complete strangers sat next to each other struggling to make conversation, resulting in a negative effect on what should be the biggest celebration of your life! With Craig as your wedding magician, that is one worry you won’t have! Let Craig be the perfect ice breaker for your guests, he will leave your guests chatting and getting on like a house on fire, often creating new friendships as they speculate how the miracles they just witnessed were done!

Evening Reception
It’s the most perfect night of your life; you’re up on the dance floor strutting your stuff to ‘Dancing Queen’. In your mind you’re thinking, the service is over, the speeches are done, and everything’s gone smoothly. You should now be completely relaxed and enjoying yourself, … except you’re thinking ‘I hope people are enjoying themselves’, ’ I hope the music’s not too loud for Aunt Mavis?’…….. Don’t worry, let Craig entertain her and make her chuckle like never before, as he charms and entertains her along with the rest of the people who choose not to grace the dance floor. Craig will make sure that those who do not want to hit the dance floor will still have a memorable occasion of the best wedding they have ever been to!

Corporate Magician: Whether it is a conference, tradeshow, product launch, reception or any other type of corporate event, Craig James is the natural choice to entertain your guests in a professional and courteous manner. Craig is a highly sought after corporate magician, as he delights your guests with unique and elite close up magic, leaving them spellbound and captivated.
