Ed Clarke – Wedding Magician

More couples are looking for something different for their wedding reception. A Close-up/Table Magician can make a huge difference. Ed Clarke, one of the most popular magicians in the South-West, can entertain your guests whilst you are having the photos taken, after the ceremony, or moving from table to table between courses at the wedding breakfast.

When to have a Magician at your wedding

When Ed is hired for a wedding performance the slot is usually about 2 hours and takes on one of the following forms:

  • Immediately following the ceremony whilst photos are being taken and maybe for the first part of the breakfast. Perfect for summer weddings when the guests are outside for drinks and canapés!
  • At the tables between the courses of the wedding breakfast, finishing when the speeches start. This is one of the most popular options.
  • After the speeches in the transition period between the day and evening reception. This is the point of the day where the reception is in danger of lagging, so some magic can really help things along.
  • During the evening reception.

    Ed came to our wedding evening at The Headland Hotel in Newquay on 29th July. We were only a small party and he kept us all hugely entertained. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed his magic and were amazed and bewildered by his tricks. He has a lovely style, very friendly and relaxed and funny too. We would recommend him to everyone. It’s a great way to add something special to your party.

    We had Ed for our wedding and he was brilliant.. he entertained all our guests of a variety of ages, we originally saw him at a local wedding fayre and both me and my husband said we have to have him and it was one of the best decisions we made about our wedding, cannot thank him enough! His magic was definatly a mystery, had us all God smacked! Highly recommended you would not be disappointed! Thanks again 🙂

    Thank you for entertaining the guests at our wedding. You arrived just as things could have started to go wrong, the children had finished eating and the adults had yet to have their main course. You swooped in like some sort of magician superhero (minus the tights and cape !)decided that balloon modelling was the way forward and entertained the children whilst adults finished eating. As if that wasn’t enough you then fascinated all of our guests young and old with close up table magic and an endless stream of witty banter. Just wish we had booked you for longer. Anyone who is pondering on whether to book Ed just do it he is fantastic !

    Wedding at Knightor
    Just wanted to say a really massive thanks for entertaining the guests at our daughters wedding on Saturday. Thank you for agreeing to perform at such short notice when the magician we had booked had to cancel on us. You were FANTASTIC and ALL of our guests were buzzing about you! My only regret is that we only booked you for 2 hours!

    Dear Ed, Vicky and I just wanted to write more formally to thank you for all you did to make our wedding day so enjoyable both for us and our guests. We gather that early on you were caught by just every child there (which was a lot!) for your wonderful balloons, but we also had wonderful feedback about your magic, and we were certainly dumbfounded by the magic you did for the two of us (and the admiring crowd!) We are so glad we tracked you down and will be recommending you, and we hope that you may be able to do something in the future for us in one way or the other. We hope all goes well for you. with all best wishes Matthew Taylor & Vicky Taylor (House of Commons)

    I just wanted to thank you for the great entertainment that you provided for our daughters wedding on the 30th June in Truro. The unanimous verdict was that you were absolutely brilliant. This appears to be confirmed by the photographer who has almost as many snaps of you entertaining the guests at the reception as of the bride and groom. I sincerely hope to see your work again as so far, I haven’t got a clue how you do it

    Have to thank you for entertaining the guests at our wedding at the Headland Hotel, all our guests loved you and your magic, truly amazing!
    Would highly recommend you Ed 🙂
    Hope you can make my birthday and entertain everyone again.

    Thank you so much for entertaining our guests at our wedding reception.
    Your magic is incredible, you were so much better than we could have imagined.
    When you think of a magician you think of a rabbit in a hat trick, but your magic was superb with real mind bending tricks. How do you do it….? I’m sure we’ll see you on T.V soon.
    Thank you again.
