Wedding entertainment is something that sadly, is overlooked by so many couples. That’s why we wanted to put together a short blog about wedding entertainment ideas.
Often we’ll have people say to us that they love the energy in our work. They love how happy everyone looks and the fun everyone seems to be having. The truth is that these kind of responses don’t come from nowhere. Generally speaking, people aren’t throwing their heads back in fits of giggles in normal everyday conversation. People tend to react to the situation they are in.
If you would like wedding photographs that are full of fun, laughter and energy, providing entertainment is one of the best ways to provoke interaction and reaction from your guests.
Wedding entertainment ideas do not have to be expensive! All you need for a bit of a reaction is something you know will get your guests thinking or doing. Ideas that allow people to also be spectators tend to be great too. This way, as many people as possible can be involved in some shape or form. Guests who are shy or apprehensive may feel more comfortable watching.

For some couples this is magicians or illusionists. Others choose caricaturists or silhouette artists.
