We love a wedding! We provide wedding entertainment to hundreds of weddings each year and whether you are hiring a magician or band, we like to think we will go the extra mile for you on your big day. Many people may think that the wedding begins when the act gets booked but for us, it starts at wedding fairs and showcases, where we first meet you and show off a little off the entertainment we provide.
The wedding showcase at Hedsor House last night was a case in point. The venue itself is a gorgeous Georgian-style mansion in Buckinghamshire and is a brilliant choice for a wedding. If you don’t believe us, just look at that photo below from their promotional material. It’s like something straight out of Beauty & the Beast!
The wedding fair itself was laid on in order to allow various couples to sample a little bit of everything from the various wedding suppliers on display. The flowers were provided by InWater Flowers and looked absolutely stunning whilst Rhubarb were in charge of catering. We must say the dessert table was calling to us from a far with tiny salted caramel popcorn tarts, huge marshmallows and shortbread. Mmm!
On the entertainment front, we had laid out our business cards with cute flowers and ribbons, which we thought added a bit of the ‘Sternberg Clarke touch’. Why offer a plain business card when you can add a bit extra? Also in attendance we had a couple of our most popular wedding entertainment acts for hire in the form of both a magician and a jazz band.
The Blind Tigers were absolutely brilliant as they sailed through their repertoire of classic hits and jazz standards, which had everybody toe tapping as they walked between the stands. They looked absolutely dashing from up on high too; perhaps if you hold your own wedding at Hedsor House, you could do this too?
Of course, putting a band on a balcony is great for acoustics and wonderful for wedding photography but you may also want the entertainment to reach everybody and carry a personal touch, perhaps allowing for mementos from the day to be taken home. With that in mind, Dan the magician was on hand to provide a range of masterful magic tricks and flourishes, which went down brilliantly with the wedding showcase attendees. Those who had never considered a magician for their wedding will certainly consider it now with a whole host of cheering and clapping that we don't think even he expected!
It was wonderful to meet everybody who attended, including Hannh and Johnny as well as beautiful brides to be including Cara, Anesha and Mikaela! All in all, it was a fabulous afternoon and evening and we cannot wait to return to Hedsor House for a wedding or two later in the year. It will be absolutely beautiful.
