Find something a little different for your wedding entertainment with these diverse additions for your South West or Cotswold wedding
Bring the Game Over
Are you looking for inspiration for something new and different that will entertain and amaze your guests at your wedding reception? Bring the Game Over is a fully mobile gaming arcade that offers an immersive and fun video gaming experience, perfect for breaking the ice with your guests after the speeches and as your evening guests arrive.
Bring the Game Over can entertain up to 14 guests at a time from the incredible one-of-a-kind gaming van or set up inside your venue.
Harpists Emma Graham and Liz Grier are duo Harpe Noire. Two harps at your wedding can open up a world of possibilities and provide the ultimate wow factor. Harpe Noire offers a unique service by allowing a seamless, musical transition from ceremony to reception.
Emma and Liz set up both harps, one in the ceremony room and the second one ready for your drinks reception. This removes that awkward gap while the harpist rushes from one position to another, setting up hurriedly in front of your guests. The two harps can then come together to perform as a duo for the remainder of the drinks reception. Your entertainment is continuous for the entire event as we take individual breaks.
Harps are incredibly versatile and Harp Noire's repertoire covers all styles of music. Emma and Liz are also happy to learn requests for you; let them create the perfect soundtrack to your big day.
First Dance Discos
Everybody dance now… A disco is the perfect way to celebrate your big day. Your DJ should play something for everyone, keeping your guests entertained and on that dance floor All Night Long. First Dance Discos say many of their couples compile a playlist of requests from family and friends which, combined with the couples own requests, provides the perfect balance for the evening.
Then there’s the first dance. Having trouble choosing that special song? Want something a little different? Talk to First Dance Discos, they can help with suggestions or even produce a special mix, just for you.

LB Magic UK
A good magician can make you believe in magic – a great magician can be the magic. Plymouth-based magician Lewis Belcher is one of the premier magicians currently working in Devon and Cornwall. President of the Plymouth Magic Circle in 2015, he’s brought his own brand of close-up magic to hundreds of weddings and both corporate and private events across the South West.
A versatile and adaptable magician, he specialises in close-up and table magic, performing tricks with cards, coins and rings, as well as illusions, mentalism, predictions and mind reading.
A professional wedding magician is the perfect way to keep your guests’ interest during your wedding reception. Guests can spend a lot of time sitting around: waiting for the photographer to finish, waiting for dinner to be served, waiting for the speeches or the band. If your guests are happy, you can relax and enjoy your wedding just how it should be.
