More often than not word soon gets round that there is a magician is at the wedding performing astonishing feats of magic and mind reading. for most, the lure to find out more and experience the magic themselves becomes too much and what starts out as a magician performing to a couple end up with a magician surrounded by guests all eager to get involved. Thus a magician plays the important role of ice breaker as well as entertainer and all round host.
