Circus acts

If you want to really switch up the entertainment and go that extra mile. Why not consider something more extravagant. You could have fire performers who can perform fire juggling, body burning and fire breathing during their act. You can choose from a complete fire show, solo performances or a meet and greet as your guests arrive to your venue. You could also hire plenty of other circus acts; such as stilt walkers; you could have acrobats at your wedding who perform around your guests or in a show, combining balancing acts, aerial silk displays with flying somersaults and drops. The talented professionals will certainly create an incredible atmosphere for your guests and make your evening a night to remember. Just consider the fact that not all venues will be able to cater for the requirements needed for the above acts, so be careful to check before securing your venue.

You could consider hiring a magician who can wow your guests with their tricks.





Musicians can really create the perfect ambience you want for your wedding. You must choose what kind of vibe you want to create. Do you want a smooth Jazz pianist or saxophonist to create an intimate, romantic and chilled atmosphere or do you want a lively band to create a loud, upbeat evening?  Musicians add an extra touch you can’t get from a playlist and they can personalise the music to suit you and your partners vision for the performance. Just make sure you think of when and where you would like the performance to take place at your wedding. You could even choose to have multiple musicians at your ceremony and reception.
