Debs - Wedding



Darren first got his hands on a Paul Daniels Magic set when he was nine years old. Needless to say - all family gatherings were dazzled by the youngster showing off his party tricks. This soon developed when, as a teen, Darren figured he could take his magic further and was delighted when asked to perform for his mums office Christmas party! After this, there was no stopping him!! Darren soon started performing at local functions and was now a member of the Magicians of Basingstoke, a local magic club that helped him build his confidence.
Through his widening network, Darren was able to reach greater audiences and was soon in demand for repeat bookings by happy customers. Although based in the south of England, he has travelled countrywide to perform his amazing unique style of magic.
Darren is certainly not your usual magician, with the cliche of top hats and white rabbits! He is a modern, light hearted and humorous close up entertainer who will astound your guests from the moment he arrives.



When at a wedding should I have Darren booked for?

There are a few points at a wedding that is ideal to have Magic entertainment.


The Photos - This is when families stand about waiting to be called to have their photos with the newlywed couple. This can often lead to lengthy waiting times for you guests. This is the ideal time to have Darren entertain your guests. 

The wedding breakfast - The speeches are done, the newlywed couple are now red faced from the stories revealed. Perhaps from the dessert course onwards, Darren can entertain your guests while they are sat at their tables.

Dancing into the night - The bride has kicked off her shoes, the groom has taken his tie off and rolled up his sleeves and both are waving there arms about to the Macarena. Darren can entertain your newly arrived guests into the evening and mix and mingle amongst them throughout the night.

These are ideas that have worked well at previous weddings.
