Hey! I’m Close-Up Chris – an expert wedding magician and sensational socialiser! Using comedy, pickpocketing and sleight of hand, I'll provide some OMG moments to make your wedding unforgettable!


What are the benefits of hiring a wedding magician

Hiring a wedding magician is so much more than amazing tricks! Here are some cool benefits... Amazing photo opportunities - capture beautiful memories with the help of my skilled magic! A great way to break the ice - let me kick off conversations between guests, creating an inviting and relaxed atmosphere right away. Bringing everyone together - I will create an atmosphere of unity amongst all your guests through interactive and captivating performances. Perfectly filling any gaps - having something fun to do in between speeches or activities will ensure that everyone has a truly unforgettable evening. Lively atmosphere throughout - whatever happens during the day, I can make sure the atmosphere remains lively and exciting.

Which part of the day do you recommend hiring yourself?

I believe the best times are for either the drinks reception or after the wedding breakfast leading into your evening reception. I also offer a package that covers both times - ideal for those who have plenty of guests coming.

How long have you been a wedding magician?

I've been performing professionally since 1998! With plenty of weddings under my comedy belt, I've seen every type of wedding guest and can guarantee fantastic reactions every time.


Fantastic magician/entertainer, wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chris. Our guests were raving about him, original tricks and hilariously funny to boot. If you need an act to spice up your occasion get Chris you won't be disappointed.

Had so much guest feedback on how great Chris was, so pleased we booked!! Not just the magic, which was amazing, but also how funny he was! Husband and I and a few close family and friends got a separate show as we'd been off taking photos and it was so entertaining, left us with huge smiles on our faces and on an even bigger high as we went into our wedding breakfast! Thank you Chris!!

We booked Chris for the drinks reception of our wedding. Not only was the magic amazing, but he is also an incredibly funny guy. Our guests were talking about him for the rest of the day and the days following the wedding! My wife and I would 100% recommend Chris. We can’t wait to see the reaction shots picked up by our photographer and videographer!

What can I say about Chris, brilliant, entertaining and one of the highlights of our wedding probably doesn’t do him justice. Everyone was wowed so couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

We have hired Close-Up Chris Magician on two occasions. Firstly for a 60th birthday party and more recently at our wedding. He entertained our guests from afternoon until sunset with jaw-dropping magic tricks. He has a great sense of humour and a charismatic personality. Our friends were talking about him for weeks after the event. Honestly - worth every penny!
