Entertainment

Hi is anyone having afternoon entertainment? I know the couple of hours between ceremony and reception can drag for guests who aren’t included in photography session. I’ve thought of a caracturist or magician. Has anyone done that or thinking of it? TIA

All my guests mingled and had fun. We put old school games on the tables like dominoes, pick up sticks, packs of cards etc and they all had a good time x

We had a magician on arrival whilst cocktails and canopy’s were served. Then it was photos food and then we had a singer and a magic mirror plus a dj for when singer had finished to be honest it was so warm and lovely and went so fast probably didn’t need as much xx

My sister had an ice cream cart. Pimms and some other bottles of booze out. It was in the garden and seemed to keep us occupied

We’ve got an acoustic singer coming a bit before and during the wedding breakfast. Hopefully it will prompt a good singalong!!!

You shouldn’t have hours of pic taking. For the break between day and night reception we have a whole heap of stuff going on

We had a silhouette artist and it was amazing. So different and everyone was fascinated. I justified the price as the silhouettes doubled up as favours. http://www.roving-artist.com/charles-burns

We had drinks and a magician who circulated round everyone. He was so much more popular than I could have hoped for as well! He went round the tables during the wedding breakfast too between courses and then after the meal did a levitation act with the best woman which everyone loved! Was all amazing!! God I wanna have the exact same day all over again!!!
