Stephen James Magic

Today we are delighted to introduce you to one of our newest Wedding Supplier Partners. Over to you Stephen….

How did it all start?
I have a good friend who is a magician, he lent me some DVDs on magic and it all went from there. After two years if performing literally everyone I met (and getting a lot of free drinks) I did my first paid wedding. Now I perform every week at weddings, parties and corporate events.

Do you have a favourite venue?
The London Aquarium, nothing quite like performing with a massive shark tank behind you!

How would clients describe you?
Reliable, friendly, personable, organised and off course magical!

Wedding planners or suppliers you particularly admire?
You are all awesome 🙂 (we love you already Stephen)

How do you unwind?
Oddly enough I actually unwind by performing more magic at my local bar. At paid gigs I am suited up, on my best behaviour, doing my best material and drinking water. It is rather fun just to go out for some beers and perform to random strangers trying out new things with no pressure.

What trends are you seeing for 2016/17?
I hope that having a magician at weddings continues to increase in popularity!

What is your signature dish?
I cook epic fajitas!

Whose celebrity wedding (dead or alive) would you love work on?
Would have to be Prince Harry’s, the amount of high-end work you could get just by being able to say you were involved would be immense.

What is your vice?
Mornings, I am not a morning person. Which is why this job works great as most gigs are afternoon/evenings.
