Welcome to the website of close-up magician Paul Edmondson. Over the last 20 years I have performed as a close-up magician throughout the UK. I perform at all sorts of occasions, as a wedding magician primarily. I perform weekly as a birthday magician and at other occasions too including as a christening magician and restaurant magician. I love performing magic and believe in a light-hearted approach. Entertainment to me is about having as much fun as possible. Don’t worry, you won’t be chopped in half and before you ask I can’t make your wife disappear! Magician hire is becoming more and more popular and adds an extra dimension to your event or celebration. I invite you to have a browse through my site, read my reviews and if you have any questions, send me a message.
It’s such a special day for you both and you have spent a lot of time and money planning to ensure everything is just right. I am fortunate to be a wedding magician in that I have attended hundreds over the years. What an absolute pleasure it is to be part of it all.
A magician isn’t an added extra, you may see it as a luxury but I see it as an essential. Many times I arrive at a wedding and hear people saying, “What are we doing now?” or “Where are the bride and groom?”
These questions are asked because the format of the day tends to be the same. After the wedding ceremony there tends to be a lull, whilst the wedding breakfast is being prepared. This is a prime opportunity for the bride and groom to share moments with the photographer.
The problem is it leaves the guests with a long period of waiting around, otherwise known as the wedding lull.
This is when I come in. There will be no guests waiting around. There will be nobody asking what is happening next. I will ensure that during this period of up to 2 hours everyone will be entertained. This acts as a great ice breaker and ensures that the room is filled with fun and laughter. I include everyone, young and old. I mix amongst the guests and perform either individually or in a group. I don’t need a table or any special props. I am very flexible in that my magic can be performed anywhere, anytime.
If you are having a birthday celebration then magic is the perfect ice breaker for you and all your guests. Give your guests something to remember. Paul can entertain both young and old.
“Paul mesmerised me with his magic and sleight of hand!
Excellent magician.” – Tina O’Brien Coronation Street
