Welsh National Wedding Awards 2019 Shortlist

Welsh National Wedding Awards 2019 logo

I perform at lots of different events over the course of the year, from outdoor festivals to corporate functions, and I have a great time at all of them; meeting lots of different folk from all walks of life, and getting them smiling and laughing with my performance.

But one of my favourite type of events will always be weddings: not only are you surrounded by people who are celebrating a joyous occasion, unified by the love they have for the two people they are there to see tie the knot; but it is also an honour to be a part of such a special day, to be one of the elements that helps people build some life-long memories.

There are many different elements that help bring such a day together, and I have had the privilege to work alongside some of the best in the business, from DJs and caterers to venue dressers, make-up artists, photographers and so many more. There are many people behind these special days and each year, to celebrate the best of the best, The Welsh National Wedding Awards are held in Swansea.

Welsh National Wedding Awards 2019 - shortlisted in non-musical wedding entertainment/act

Suppliers from across Wales can throw their hat in the ring and it’s up to their brides, grooms and guests to vote for them. The country is split into five regions and there are twenty five categories. To be shortlisted for the final means you are in the top five for your category in your region. This year I entered Gatling Magic into the running as part of the Non-musical Wedding Entertainment Act category. And recently they revealed who is on the Welsh National Wedding Awards 2019 Shortlist. As you may have guessed by now… I was shortlisted for the final!

It is such an honour to have got this far, and to know that it is thanks to all those who voted for us. I am so happy knowing that all those folks have enjoyed the magic and have allowed me this amazing opportunity. So on November 3rd I’ll be heading down to Swansea to attend the awards ceremony, with everything crossed that we take home the prize. But even if that doesn’t come to pass just getting this far is truly amazing. Thank you all once again.

Rhyl Town Hall Wedding Fayre Autumn 2019 – postponed

24/08/2019: Please note that this event has now been postponed. We’ll post details of the new date as soon as we have them.

Weddings are big events – events that require a lot of planning and putting together; most people have never attempted to organise such a thing and bring to life such a major undertaking. It’s a special day you want to remember for years to come, a day that filled with love and laughter.

But where do you start with such a thing? Well if you’ve read the title of this blog then you know the answer is a wedding fayre; like the Rhyl Town Hall wedding fayre this autumn 2019. These events are designed to help you get an idea of the sorts of things you might want to think about for the big day, and are generally held in beautiful venues where you can get married and/or have the wedding breakfast and evening reception.

Jay Gatling performs close up magic for a bride and groom.

Wedding fayres are also full of fantastic local suppliers who can help you with all your questions, and even inspire you with ideas you may not have thought about. We attend multiple wedding fayres as a wedding supplier twice a year. The two seasons are Spring and Autumn fayres. It’s great to be able to speak face to face with all those budding brides and grooms and help shape their perfect day.

Having worked dozens upon dozens of weddings over the years we’ve seen the beautiful, the unusual, and the astounding. And because of this experience we have a good deal of knowledge concerning our place in the proceedings, and how a little close-up magic added to the day can be an invaluable tool. Keeping guests entertained as you have your pictures taken, or getting whole tables laughing and engaging with each other during the wedding breakfast – these are just some of the advantages of having a walk about close-up magician as part of the day.

Jay from Gatling Magic entertains guests at a wedding.

The autumn wedding fayre season will be kicking off very soon and the first fayre we will be attending is at the fantastic Rhyl Town Hall. This will be on September 1st and will be attended by a fabulous variety of wedding suppliers, all ready and willing to help you with you big day.

It would be great to speak with you about how we can bring high quality, memorable magic to the day also. So come on by and have a chat and see how we can help.

What you need to know about Rhyl Town Hall Wedding Fayre Autumn 2019

The Rhyl Town Hall Wedding fayre takes place on Sunday the 1st of September 2019, and runs from 12pm to 4pm. New date to be confirmed.

Trustpilot 5 Star Review & Recommended on Facebook “100% recommend Gatling Magic”

“Jay entertained at our wedding on 6.8.19. He was absolutely amazing. All the guests were mesmerised, whilst we were having our photos. The children were also performed for personally too. They thought it was brilliant. My daughter particular loved it, and would have the performances to her self if she could. If your in any doubt as to have entertainment at your event, I would 100% recommend Gatling Magic. We will definitely book again in the future. Thank you so much Jay, all of guests absolutely loved every minute of you being at our wedding, and the children didn’t stop talking about you. Xxxx”
