Weddings are a once in a lifetime occasion for sure but without doubt, long days. On average, a wedding from start to finish is 12 hours long and with that comes some downtime for your guests. With a little thoughtful planning. A little downtime during the day is great but by implementing some of these suggestions, your guests will love you forever!


Whilst some people may have a natural aversion to magic acts, there are some magicians these days that are phenomenal and can leave guests in wonder.  A good wedding magician should have good patter with guests, mingle well and have show-stopping magic.

Circus entertainers

There are few places in the world which generate the mystical feeling of the big top at a circus.  This feeling can be recreated at a wedding.  Think jugglers ushering guests out to the grounds of the Estate for cocktails in the sunshine with fire breathers and acrobats performing around the Coach House and stilt walkers moving between the guests.


Many companies will send out some of the world’s favourite casino games along with croupiers for guests to try their luck at.


Bring guests together by making them team up and enjoy a fun quiz.  Questions shouldn’t be too hard to keep the mood light.  In fact, to keep within the theme of the day, and to make things even more personal, the questions could be about you both as a couple and include funny anecdotes which will have guests feeling even closer to you.

Photo booth

Whilst you as the couple are having precious photos of the day done, why not let the guests enjoy some photo opportunities as well? Guests can get together and have beautiful, wacky, or funny photos taken throughout the day, creating a memory book of images for keepsakes.


Guests can have these funny drawings of themselves as a souvenir of the day.  Another conversation starter which is sure to keep guests amused.
