Top 5 wedding entertainment trends of 2019

We are busy prepping for our first Wedding Fair this weekend at the stunning Hylands Estate, Chelmsford. We are so excited to meet with all the future brides (and grooms) and discuss how we can create extra special moments for them and their guests. Our talented circus-themed acts put on show-stopping performances, guaranteed to add the wow-factor to any big day. Here’s what we expect to be the top 5 most popular choices of wedding entertainment for 2019 and beyond.

1. Fire Performers

With-out a doubt, fire performers are in huge demand right now. Their flamboyant shows are spectacular to watch and create a dramatic arrival for your evening guests. Your guests will watch in amazement as their daring routines combine spinning, breathing and dancing to create an amazing show of light. Fire acts are perfect for kicking off the evening celebrations or if you are planning on having a firework display then a fire performer would add that extra special touch!

2. Circus Entertainers

Thanks to the success of films such as The Greatest Showman, the circus trend continues to be huge throughout 2019. Our acrobats, contortionists, stilt walkers and aerialists are extremely graceful and versatile performers. Whether it’s a big spectacular show or drinks reception entertainment, they can tailor their performance to your requirements. We also have a range of costumes to suit any colour theme and can create a spectacular display that will have your guests talking for a long time to come.

3. Showgirls / Flapper Girls

Our Showgirls or Flapper Girls are perfect for meeting and greeting guests as they arrive. Don’t leave your guests wondering where the party is, our glitzy girls will meet them at the entrance and make sure they know where to go, they will even pose for a photo whilst they’re at it. Once all your guests are where they need to be, the girls will get the party started with a choreographed performance. Or why not make a grand entrance and have the girls lead you into your evening reception and introduce the first dance. There’re so many options!

4. Magicians

Still as popular as ever, our amazing close-up magicians and table magicians are the perfect entertainment for drinks receptions or wedding breakfasts. Their amazing illusions will have everyone wondering ‘how did they do that?’

5. Human Tables

Let’s bring the drinks table to you – quite literally! Don’t let your guests stand around with empty glasses, keep the drinks flowing with our stunningly unique walkabout champagne table. You won’t have seen anything quite like this before – our specially made dress can carry up to 80 flutes of your favourite fizz at a time! Which will keep your guests busy whilst you have your official wedding photos taken.
