When planning a wedding, it’s worth prioritising quality entertainment for your guests to enjoy throughout the day or into the night.

Aside from popular choices such as a band or DJ, below are our suggestions for novel and captivating wedding entertainment.

Magician or Comedian

Let’s face it – Everyone loves magic and illusions, young or old. Bemuse and mystify your guests with a host of magic tricks performed by a true professional. Or if magic isn’t your thing, why not hire a comedian. Weddings can sometimes be emotional and overwhelming, so what better way to end the day than with lots of fun and laughter. Light-hearted comedy is a great way to entertain guests of all ages.

Violinist or Harpist

A classic option for entertainment that’s relaxing and truly sophisticated.  Hiring a violinist, harpist or even a string quartet can not only offer a soothing backdrop to those special moments, such as walking down the aisle, but also entertain guests with a collection of contemporary and traditional music in their own right.

Circus and Acrobatics

If you have the budget, circus performers can really add the surprise factor to any wedding. You can choose from a variety of acts such as fire breathing, illusionists, jugglers, acrobatics and much more. And as an extension of the circus or carnival theme, you can even hire fun fair rides from a Helter-skelter through to the Dodgems, carousels, Ferris Wheels and so much more.

Tarot Reader

Forgot old stereotypes of backroom fortune tellers – Modern tarot reading practices have seen a huge resurgence in recent years, thanks to social media. Why not hire a professional tarot reader to pull cards to see what the past, present and future has in store?  This unique experience is sure to intrigue and delight your guests.

Singing Waiters

For something else a little different, you can give your guests the ultimate surprise with a singing waiter and create a truly memorable experience for everyone who attends your wedding. They are a popular choice, as they can sing any genre of music, from rock through to country and rock and roll. Your guests won’t be able to stop themselves smiling and having lots of fun.

Hopefully these ideas give you some inspiration for what entertainment to choose for your wedding day, all of which would make fantastic additions to a modern marquee wedding.
