Bride Surprised by a Magic Trick Proposal
09 May 2014
Magician, Chris Piercy collaborated with The Dining Room in Weymouth, wwwthediningroomweymouth.co.uk and groom Matt Snook for a very special proposal...
Matt Snook and his bride-to-be Sam Legg are big fans of magic, so Dorset-based magician Chris Piercy offered to make Matt’s proposal to Sam that little bit more special for them.
Chris says: “Matt himself had no idea exactly how I was going to be producing the ring for the proposal, he just had to trust me with the ring two days in advance of the planned date and wait for his cue line.
“Myself and Sophie from The Dining Room who also runs a marketing company then had to come up with an excuse for it to be filmed, so what better cover than to go around and film magic at other tables first.
“So myself and the cameraman turned up at the restaurant; Sophie was our spy seated at a nearby table to the couple to let us know once they’d arrived.
“I began by performing magic for three other tables until I received word from the kitchen that they had finished their main courses and had ordered their desserts - and that’s when it happened.
“There were so many ways in which I could have produced the ring magically but I wanted it to be in a way which left Sam speechless and shocked and I don’t know if you agree but I think it worked!”
