It’s a sad fact that many people who attend your wedding may not be in the best of health. This may be because of an injury, general sickness or complications related to age but that is not a reason to exclude these attendees from the fun! It’s true that your Great Grandmother might not be able to dance to an Ed Sheeran track any more, but she can still enjoy some wedding entertainment! How? By booking strolling entertainment of course, where the performers come to you!
Our most popular strolling act – in fact our most popular act of all – Wandering Hands are consummate professionals and often get booked up a good twelve months in advance. Comprising two guitarists and a saxophonists, the group have a pre-prepared repertoire that they hand out to guests as they stroll about your wedding venue. Like the look of a song on their sheet? Request it! A bit like a live walking jukebox, hire Wandering Hands and we can readily assure you that guests will not stop talking about your wedding day for many months to come!
One of my own personal favourite acts, booking a Silhouette Artist combines skill that I never possessed at school with a memento of your day for those in attendance! Needing just a piece of card and some scissors, they’ll be able to snip out your profile and hand it back to you within just a few minutes. Many who receive their own personal silhouette often like to frame the creation, which will be a lasting memory of your special day.
If you’re booking a summer wedding then hiring Living Topiary is an absolute must! Perfect for weddings taking place at stately homes like Eltham Palace, or a natural fit for venues like Kew Gardens, Living Topiary are a fun act that will have everybody smiling as they arrive for the ceremony. Perfect for photo opportunities and surprising guests as hedges apparently come alive, they are a hit no matter where they go and are sure to be the most talked about part of your wedding day… Until the vows and speeches of course!
Here’s something a little bit different to offer your guests on their wedding day – a high resolution photograph of one of their eyes. We admit it may not seem like a standard form of entertainment to feature at a wedding, but Eyecon Art is certainly interesting and we’ve witnessed many long queues and requests for the photographer to turn their lens on someone else’s eyes. Not as mobile as a number of other acts, this is still a fascinating and high-tech form of entertainment.
Tuk Tuk Photobooth
Okay, okay, we lied! This one isn’t really strolling entertainment at all but it is rolling entertainment! Of course, when the photos are being taken, the Tuk Tuk Photobooth is stationary, but there may be an opportunity to liaise with the assistant in charge to manoeuvre the booth to another part of your wedding to ensure that every guest is allowed a turn! This is a perfect addition to Indian weddings as well as any that take place during the summer months!
