Owen has been wonderful in accommodating a change of date for our wedding. He replied within hours and moved to our new date free of charge. No hassle and a happy bride and groom because he will still be entertaining us and our guests on the big day.

Hi Joy Thanks for the nice words. Sorry you’ve had to postpone, but we will have an awesome day at Botancial Gardens Next year 😀😀
So we were due to get married this year, July. Unfortunately due to the current circumstances we have had to postpone. Owen has been amazing ! He has continually been in touch with us checking if our wedding is still going ahead as planned. Until we basically faced reality. Owen has been very accommodating and luckily enough he is available for our new renewal date ! No extra cost etc, just switching the dates. I would definitely recommend !

Thanks Holly. Glad it was an easy swap!! 2022 sounds a long way off, but it will sooon be here ! Looking forward to seeing you all at Aston Wood 😀
Our July 2020 wedding was unfortunately postponed due to covid-19. On the run up to postponing we contacted all our suppliers with questions about what would happen should they not be available on our new date. Owen was the only supplier who was willing to give a full refund should this be the case. He has been by far the easiest supplier to deal with throughout this whole experience and even checked in with us a couple of times offering support and reassurance. We postponed to a peak date for 2021. Fortunately, Owen is available on our new date and we look forward to having him entertain our guests! X

Hi Kayleigh Thanks so much for the lovely words. Im so pleased i could help in this awful time. Thankfully its all sorted,a nd i can't wait to see you all next year a The Wroxeter ! :)
We had booked Owen for our wedding in June 2020 after being recommended him a number of times and finally meeting him at a wedding fayre. Unfortunately due to Covid-19 we have now had to postpone until next year. Swapping dates with Owen was no issue at all and everything was just transferred over to our new date with no extra cost. We actually worked our New date around Owens’ availability as having him there to us was a must. He’s brilliant at what he does and know he will be great entertainment in our big day!!!

Hi Gemma Thanks so much for the lovely words. I can't wait to see you all next year at Hogarths. It will be an awesome day !!
Having had to postpone our wedding this year due to the coronavirus situation, Owen has been fantastic with getting us booked in next year and rearranging very quickly and efficiently! We can’t wait for next year to have Owen perform at our wedding!
We’d booked owen for our wedding July 2020, unfortunately we had to postpone to the following year due to current circumstances. Owen couldn’t be any more helpful, luckily he managed to change to date for us without any problems. We are so grateful for his understanding an help throughout. He kept us informed as soon as circumstance arisen before we decided to postpone and from start to finish was always friendly and helpful. Thank you so much for everything Owen, it was a weight off our shoulders, giving us one less thing to worry about.

Hi Sarah Thank you for the kind words. I’m glad I could be helpful. I can’t wait for you day to come now 😀😀
Our wedding was cancelled with 12hours to go at the very start of the pandemic, we contacted Owen immediately who was very professional and caring moving our date without hesitation fee free, not many suppliers would offer this and we are very grateful for his service we look forward to seeing him on our new date.

Hi Steven. Thank you so much. I’m all my years of doing weddings, this was the saddest story I have had !! I can’t imagine how awful it was for both of you. BUT!! The new date will be an epic day. I will make sure of it!! I can’t wait to see you all 😀
My wedding was cancelled the night before back in March 2020 by our venue. As you can imagine we were both devastated. I then started to contact those who I had booked one being Owen Strickland Magic. I must say Owen was extremely helpful and swiftly moved, at no extra charge, to book us in with our new date, this took a lot off our minds. He was very professional and we look forward to him making our day special later this year. Liz & Paul x

Hi Liz I can’t imagine how awful that must have been for you. Truly heartbreaking. But I’m really looking forward to the rearranged date now! We will make it an epic day !!
We booked Owen for our wedding this year (2020) but due to the Coronavirus we reluctantly had to move our wedding date to 2021. After contacting Owen to advise him of the change to our date, he without hesitation, rebooked his act to our new date. We didn’t lose any deposit we’d already paid and there were no additional charges. We cannot thank Owen enough for doing this for us and making what was an already stressful time one thing less to worry about. Would definitely recommend and we are now looking forward to our new date.

Hi Jane. Thank you so much for the nice words. Glad I could help in this awful circumstances. Really looking forward to seeing you next year
Owen has been nothing but amazing during this difficult time! We booked Owen for our wedding as evening entertainment. Unfortunately we had to postpone our wedding due to corona virus! We had postpone 3 day’s before the big day which was heartbreaking. However, on contacting Owen to let him know, he was nothing but supportive and understanding offering such kind words (even with such short notice) which made the whole experience calm and a weight off our shoulders! He was able to accommodate our new date and we couldn’t be more thankful! We can’t wait to celebrate on our new date and have Owen there to entertain our guests! Thank you Owen!

Hi Sam. It must have been heartbreaking to have to postpone as late as you did. But when it all happens next year we will all have an amazing day !! Can’t wait to see you all !! Stay safe in the meantime !! O
We were due to get married 24th April this year and to have Owen as our entertainment in the evening, unfortunately due to this lovely covid -19 We had to postpone. We contacted Owen as soon as we had decided to postpone and he sent over all the dates he had free for the months we were looking to postpone to, he was very helpful and understanding and although he’s losing money by us having to move to a date someone else could have paid him for he has not charged us any free for postponement! Cannot wait for our new date to come around and to see Owen in action!

Reply from Owen Strickland Magic:
Hi Samantha That really kind thank you. We will all he glad when this is over !! Can’t wait to see you all next year
Our wedding was postponed from 09/05/21 to 14/05/21 due to the COVID-19 outbreak and Owen couldn't have been more helpful or lovelier about it. He was so understanding at a really stressful time for everyone. He re-arranged our date and couldn't have been any nicer about it. You can tell he genuinely cares about his customers and I can't wait to see him in action next year!

Hi Charlotte Thanks so much for the review. I’m glad I could help a little in this awful time. Can’t wait to see you all next year !!
This is a very hard time for the entertainment buiesnes and Owen has been the easiest to deal with in regards to moving the booking for our wedding due to the virus he's been extremely helpful and polite about this we've dealt with other companies who have taken advantage charging us etc not a single problem has come from Owen when we asked him if we could move the booking to next year top lad very professional 👍

Reply from Owen Strickland Magic:
Thank you so much! I’m glad I could be a little comfort in this horrible time !! I’ll look forward to seeing you all next year !!
Owen is very accommodating and pleasant to deal with. Our wedding was cancelled and he did not hesitate to offer our money back or reschedule- which is more than can be said for many suppliers! Rest assured he is a professional and reliable supplier and I would definitely recommend him.

Reply from Owen Strickland Magic:
Thanks Jess. Im sorry there are some unscrupulous suppliers out there ! Fingers crossed I’ll be seeing you in August !! Take care Owen
We booked Owen approximately 2 years ago for our wedding 25/06/2020. Unfortunately Covid-19 has meant our wedding had to be postponed until next year. At the start of lockdown Owen emailed to give support and check in on us regarding the current situation. When we emailed Owen and told him about our postponed wedding, he very quickly responded with kind words and support, he promptly checked his diary and confirmed he was available. Owen sent over a new contract with amended dates, and there was no fee to move our booking. We are so happy Owen was available and we can’t wait for our wedding next year! Thank you Owen for being so professional and comforting during this hard time.
More than a few magic tricks up his sleeves. If you want a bit of magic at your wedding or any event. He is the man!

Reply from Owen Strickland Magic:
Thanks Kris. It means a lot coming form a true Pro as yourself. Always a pleasure to work with you
We had our special day on 14-03-2020, Owen was recommended to us as being one of the best. We booked him for after our meal finished and part of the evening reception. He arrived early and got to working his magic with our guests straight away. We were really impressed and so were our guests, we really enjoyed the bride/groom trick. Would highly recommend Owen he is friendly and very professional and really good at what he does. Thank you. Amy & Mike

Thanks so much Amy. My final wedding before lockdown !! I’m so glad it was yours ! I had a great time with you and your guests thank you. Best wishes for the future
Me and my wife had Owen at our wedding at Aston Marina in 2019, in the evening between the wedding breakfast and dancing. Owen was fantastic. He performed across all the tables for both adults and children and many of our guests came up to us and mentioned how fun and good he was. Owen helped make our day even more special and I would highly recommend him again.
Owen is simply the best! He attended our wedding and some of the photos we have with the astonished looks on our guest’s faces are just brilliant ... he can hold a large or small audience in awe, with a mixture of his excellent magic, comic timing and all round genuine enjoyment no his role. Whether it’s for a corporate event or a personal celebration, look no further than Owen!
Always friendly with a card up his sleeve. Love watching him work his magic.
We can't speak highly enough about Owen, he is a natural entertainer and incredibly skilled magician who clearly loves what he does. He was a real hit at our son's wedding, delighting the guests with his repertoire, and their reactions were priceless! We are so pleased that we booked him, it made a wonderful day even more special and we didn't want him to leave. Highly recommend.

Thanks so much for a lovely review Deb. It was a great day at Mythe barn. Scorching hot and a great crowd 😀
Well where do I start , well I went to a wedding fair at Woodside Hotel where my daughter had booked to get married at , and as soon as Owen did a magic trick I was hooked and booked him right away for a surprise for my daughter and soon to be son in law , straight after the ceremony he pretended to be a waiter then told them he was a magician and I had booked him as a surprise, he was awesome and went to the bride and groom and did table side magic for all the guests , there faces of amazement was enough for me , and through out the meal the comments were fabulous, then one of my granddaughters who is 8 was teary as she was going to do the toast but couldn’t in the end so was upset , my husband went to Owen and told him we had an upset 8 year old bridesmaid, then Owen went right over and that was that , the video I have is so cute of her smiles of pure amazement and he changed her mood then she was fine , many of the guests wanted him to go back to them to do more magic , we didn’t get one negative comment, I also had a brain wave to ask Owen also to be there for the evening reception so when guests cane would make them feel at ease which it most certainly did , I would very highly recommend Owen to anyone and if you can book him for evening reception as well so other guests don’t miss out on his superb talents , Owen I would like to thank you for your very hard work , ALL my guests and bride and groom were amazed and loved you !!!! WORTH EVERY SINGLE PENNY !!!! xxx

We would highly recommend Owen he is amazing, talented and always has you speechless with his outstanding magic. He recently was the entertainment at our wedding all the guests were amazed by his talent and talked highly of him on the day and afterwards.
Owen was AMAZING at our wedding in August! The guests loved him and he kept them all entertained during our drinks reception and at the beginning of our wedding breakfast. We will certainly be booking him again for other future events and our guests have also asked for his details! Can’t recommend him enough! Thanks Owen, Casey & Mikey
Owen was the magician for our wedding on 24th August, 2019. He made an already wonderful day even more epic with his outstanding magic. Would highly recommend for any occasion, but especially for weddings where he was absolutely fantastic with all the guests. 10/10
