Caricaturist – why not turn your guests into cartoon versions of themselves? With a caricaturist, you can create an exciting atmosphere, with guests amazed and full of laughter at their final drawing. What’s more, guests can take their pictures home, which doubles up as a great wedding favour. Often positioned slightly away from the dance floor, helping to avoid the commotion, this is a great easy-going activity.

Magician – working the tables and going around your guests, a magician can add a dash of mystery, keep everyone engaged, amaze your guests with top tricks, and, if kids are in attendance, keep them amused and amazed.

Cigar lounge – is it possible to have a separate area/location you could use as a cigar lounge? Adding sophistication and a luxurious experience for your guests? Offering a chance to unwind in a relaxing environment while you socialise with your guests.

Prosecco/beer pong is a game everyone likes to participate in. Beer or prosecco pong can unite your guests as they pick and cheer on their team.

Photobooth – a timeless addition to any wedding, photo booths are fun and silly and create lasting memories that you can keep and your guests can also take away. These photos can often be personalised with your wedding date, Mr and Mrs, and you can include props that match your wedding theme and style.

Poker – placing tables around your reception with professional dealers can add an air of excitement and fun. What’s more, you could have customised poker chips with your wedding date inscribed on them.

Lawn games – always a popular choice within our Nottingham wedding package; lawn games on our lush fairways create fun and healthy competition among your guests, get everyone talking, mingling, and all around, creating a great atmosphere.

Dance-off – if you love to dance, why not call for a dance-off between your bridesmaids and groomsmen? Everyone will certainly have their cameras at the ready for this exciting and fun evening entertainment.

DJ – keeping the energy high and your guests going throughout the evening, a DJ can customise the music set they play to meet your musical tastes, personalising the experience as well as helping to keep timings on track.

Live band – giving off those concert vibes and making a great interactive experience for you and your guests, especially if you engage a band you like and follow. Whether jazz, indie, rock, or pop, make sure the band you choose can play all your favourite songs.

Pianist – elegant and classy, a pianist can provide the background music for cocktail hour, play your favourite romantic first dance song, and fill the silence while you’re having pictures taken.

Silent disco – growing in popularity, silent discos offer the ultimate unforgettable party experience. Interactive, guests can choose music to suit their taste and adjust their volume level.

Karaoke – would you let your guests dedicate a song to you and sing karaoke at your wedding? Why not select a few special guests and hand-pick their song choices beforehand?

Firework display – why not end your day with a bang and light up the night sky with a professional fireworks display that takes your and your guests’ breath away? Providing incredible photo opportunities, please always check with your wedding venue that this type of entertainment is allowed and always work with a professional team.
