Stage magic at a wedding
I did the magic coloring book, a very quick card trick with a huge deck of cards, produced large amounts of flowers from an empty paper bag, and did a reversed mind read trick where the groom was supposed to mind read from my mind which card I had put in an envelope (John Archer's version of the Kolossal Killer). I also did a gag trick with some small silk handkerchiefs and a panda, and then as a finale a card signed by the bride ended up inside a sealed (unopened) bottle of tea.
It was a lot of fun for me, and the guests seemed to enjoy it too. There was especially one older (?) man at a table near the stage that kept shouting funny comments to the things I were saying.
I had a huge room (bigger than my apartment) to wait around in back stage, and since the sound check was at 17:30 and my stage show at 20:00, I spent quite a lot of time there, haha.
