Depends on what type of magic you want, how long and if they have to travel I guess. I have been asking for quotes - only got one reply so far, will just go check for you..

Ok, for 1 hour of close-up and one on one magic the first one quoted me 95 plus travel. (25 in my case - sheffield to gretna) or 150 for two hours

Sounds like a very good idea. :D Last wedding I went too the girl wanted loads of pictures taken (6 shees of A4 paper BOTH SIDES!!) Now, as you can imagine, it was very very boring and yes people were moaning. So something like a magician is a very good idea. :D
