With summer on the horizon, we can plan for those warm, hazy summer afternoons for the wedding reception. For many, drinks, canapes, photos and a chance to catch up with friend old and new is plenty of excitement in itself…

But for those who want to add in a bit of additional fun filled entertainment, here a some of our suppliers and suggestions for wedding fun on the big day…

Looking to add some action to the reception?

Laser Clay shooting is the perfect way to bring some healthy competition… while keeping all family members and guests safe!

Laser Clay removes the dangerous element while maintaining plenty of entertainment for those involved and onlookers as well. The instructors will guide you from the stance and aim through to pulling the trigger.

To ramp up the competition, you can set teams against one and other to really get the team spirit up.


Bouncy Castle:

Let’s face it, kids and adults alike love a bouncy castle!

You don’t just have to limit your choice to the standard 3 walled, multi coloured inflatable either. Let’s Bounce offer an array of fun filled options, such as the Disco Dome which is guaranteed to create some priceless moments with its disco vibes, enclosed space and colourful light display.



Huntsham Court - wedding day fun, magician

At a recent wedding the Bride snuck in a surprise magician for the reception as a gift for the Groom who was a big fan of magic.

The magician worked the room perfectly, having come dressed as a guest, the actual guests were stunned and amazed as he whipped out card tricks that left people totally astonished!

Magicians are a great way of adding in some entertainment and wedding day fun without taking up space with equipment and props. They can simply mingle amongst your guests during the reception and even the wedding breakfast itself.

Here are our top suggestions:

Traditional and knows his stuff:
Family magician & children’s entertainer:
Contemporary & creative magician:

Falconry Display:
