The last few months has seen something that we have not seen before in our lifetime. Absolutely unprecedented, and something I hope never to see again!
I feel really sorry for the poor Brides and Grooms who have had to either postpone of cancel their weddings from this summer. At the time of writing I've managed to reschedule round 50 2020 weddings to 2021/2022. I can only imagine how awful this myst be for my couples. BUT, the end of it all is hopefully now in sight, so I thought I'd mention what Ive been doing to try and help.
Any couples that need to move their wedding day, I have moved free of charge. I have also been honouring the price agreed, so 2021 prices have not kicked in for them at all. If I cannot do a new date ( as I'm already booked), I have been refunding deposits in full. For me, its the only fair thing to do. I do not wish to gain a single penny if I'm not going to perform at the wedding.Thers also been the option to find another magician for them if they so wish. Ive passed a few on to trusted friends that cover bookings for me.
For later this year, if and when weddings start again, there may well be some social distancing involved still. If thats the case, its not a problem at all. For each wedding, there will be enough hand sanitiser that each guest, if they would like some magic, can sanitise before and after the trick. I will also have disposable gloves should they wish. If they don't wish to handle a playing card, for example, thats also fine. I will simply write their name on it for them. For other tricks i will do effects where they don't physically have to touch anything and can stay 2 meters away.
If the law changes to say masks are required in public, I will of course wear one. If the law doesn't require it, but the Couple would prefer it, that is also fine. I will do anything I can to easy an concerns , whilst still making the magical experience EPIC!
I even have an option for couples to buy masks/hand sanitiser in bulk should anyone need it. A family member can provide them.
These are some lovely reviews Ive had during the Virus to say how Ive helped couples so far
