"Where do I even start Richard...you are truly magical. Firstly your communication was amazing, quick replies, no fuss just so easy to work with. When I saw your welcomging face when I arrived (terrified about to walk down the aisle) you really made me smile. Richard is not only a magician but a people person, he is truly amazing at what he does, but the way he interacts with people just takes him to the next level. Watching my guests' faces was something I'll never forget, they were all amazed and could not stop talking about it! Highly recommend."
AMY DAWKINS, CRIPPS BARN, AUGUST 2023
"After seeing a few videos of the Gloucestershire Magician at work, we jumped to hire him for our wedding and he did not disappoint. He was fantastic at making sure he got around to all of our guests and even performed a special trick for myself and my new wife at the end of the night. He was adored by all of our guests, from the children to our Grandparents. We couldn't recommend him enough!"
HARRIET AND KEVIN HERBERT, WIDBROOK GRANGE, NOVEMBER 2022
"We booked Richard for our wedding in the evening and he was brilliant! Went down really well with all ages. Richard has a great sense of humour and I have literally no idea how he does what he does!! He made an effort to see everyone at our wedding and stayed longer than what he was booked for. A fantastic ice-breaker and prevented a lull after dinner and before the dancing."
JOSHUA FOWLES AND JOANNE, MATARA CENTRE, OCTOBER 2022
"We were lucky enough to have Richard join us at our wedding in October. He astounded both us and our guests throughout the evening! We were all left mesmermised by his skill, simply magic! A pleasure to deal with both before and during the evening."
LOUIS WINTERBOURNE AND KATE, DORMY HOUSE, OCTOBER 2022
"If you are looking for a magician for any occasion, I cannot recommmend Richard enough! We had Richard booked for our drinks reception at our wedding at Lapstone Barn in September. As with most weddings, we had to re-schedule twice due to COVID. Richard couldn't have been more accommodating or supportive during this time with all of the swaps and changes - which shows what a lovely and genuine person he is aside from being incredibly talented.
Richard was on time and put on a fantastic show! So many of our guests commented the next day on how brilliant he was and how much they enjoyed his tricks...
...On our day we were wrapped up speaking with guests and taking photos for most of the reception. One of my favourite moments was when Richard took us aside and he had saved a trick just for my husband and I...which not only gave us time together as a couple but made the whole experience feel really special. Richard - thank you SO much, you were a pleasure to have at our day. To anyone reading this review, get booking this gentleman for your event now - I can assure you that you will not be disappointed!"
