Personalised magic for Bride and Groom -Yorkshire Wedding Magician - Oliver Parker

Professional Entertainer Close Up Magician & B-Boy (Breakdancer)

People call Oliver @funprovider for a reason!

Just check out his magic and breakdancing over the last decade…

Why do you do magic?

I love making people happy, I’m a giver 😉

I mostly do this through magic, but I also used to breakdance professionally, facilitate team building rhythm and drumming activities with my father’s business, offer health & fitness advice, enjoy learning about photography and have a strange obsession with Iceland

My Journey

Age 7

My grandad and mother, none of whom were magicians, introduced me to simple card tricks, children’s magic sets and magic books from about the age of 7 and supported my journey to award winning success and professional performances whilst still in school…

Age 11

Entertaining others is my passion and what makes me happy –  I had this realisation from about the age of 11 when I would perform street magic in my local town and every break time for pupils and teachers at my high school. I’ve never wanted to do a ‘real’ job since! 

Age 12

I received a massive confidence boost and reassurance that my relentless hours of hard work and practise was paying off during my junior magician years when I won the first ever competition I entered: MagicTricks.co.uk Under 18’s Close-up Entertainer of the Year with a delightful prize of £200.
More awards and recognition soon followed from well respected members of The Magic Circle, The Northern Magic Circle, The Leeds Magic Circle and The Bradford Magic Circle – blowing people away in both Close-Up Magic competitions and Stage Magic competitions…

Age 14

Aside from relative’s family Birthday parties and charity events – I was hired for my first professional well paid event by Asda at just 14 – performing close up magic around the Holt Park, Leeds store for a Harry Potter book launch day.

Age 16

At the age of 16 I realised I loved the ability to connect with my audiences on a personal level, interacting with them face to face and experiencing their reactions as I made miracles happen right under their noses – this is when I decided to specialise in performing close up magic with everyday items such as money, playing cards, jewelry etc. and leave the out-dated traditional cheesy stage magic props behind. 

Age 18

As soon as I left 6th Form, I registered as self-employed and tried to take over Leeds… with a pack of cards. 

Age 26

It had been 10 years since entering my last magic competition so I decided to enter the Leeds Magic Circle – Close Up Magician competition… winning 1st place against some great Leeds magicians both young and old! (And again the year after!)

Age 30

I spent my 20s travelling the world and building up my business to entertain at around 200 events, media appearances and consultations per year – including several major corporate clients, but also lots of special individuals whose beautiful wedding days I’ve shared, Birthdays I’ve contributed to and soaked up far more nightlife than one individual should be able to handle!  

Age 31

Despite starting 2020 with a trip of a lifetime working in Thailand with colleagues and sharing incredible new magical ideas, Covid-19 quickly swept the world, so on the day of the first lockdown I made a break for the border and spent most of the pandemic with my girlfriend in Germany…

Thankfully I was able to continue my work with the Teenage Cancer Unit at LGI hospital and other clients like Headway by creating 2 different Virtual Magic Shows & Workshops via Zoom as well as producing magical video content for clients such as St James’s Place Wealth Management so that people could still be blown away by my magic… but through video instead!

Now

After well over 20 years of practising, performing, competing and perfecting my art of close up magic, I can tell you with 99.3% certainty that:

People love good magic…

And I love sharing my magic with people!

    positive review  My husband and I hired Oliver for our wedding in October and were so so glad we did. He was in a different class to any other magician I've ever come across and I've received so much positive feedback from friends and family. Not only was he charismatic, friendly and enthusiastic, he also knew how to share his time among all of our guests so that almost everybody got to experience at least one trick. The thing I loved the most was that he had a couple of personalised tricks up his sleeve especially for us, as bride and groom, so that we didn't miss out on the fun. Thanks so much Oliver for adding a touch of magic to our special day! 🙂 x

Oliver is a fantastic entertainer and a complete professional, having him at our wedding was a very easy decision, this is the third event Oliver has performed at for us.The reactions of the guests at our weddings made for amazing photographs and he is such a great conversation starter, even on the third occasion he still blows my mind with every trick. He provides a personalised experience and our guests are still talking about him weeks later!We would not hesitate to book him again and I am certain we will in the future!

Well what can I say, amazed, bemused or downright out of this world.We first met Oliver at a party a few years ago and were blown away by his magical talents coupled with the lovely soul that he is. So we had no hesitation in wanting to book him for our wedding day. First attempt was in 2020 but Covid put an end to that and despite his amazing talents, even Oliver couldn’t magic that away, so a year on to July 10th 2021 and Oliver enthralled our guests on what was a perfect day.To say his skills are amazing, unbelievable, just doesn’t do Oliver justice. His tricks are so incredibly awesome and each one so different. We even had a personalised trick, which was just incredible.Our guests were thoroughly entertained and were still taking about him late into the night as he shocked and stunned them all. Each trying to work out just how he did what he did but they couldn’t.My only issue now is what event can I muster up so that we can have him join us again.If you want your guests to feel extra special and captivated in awe of his magic skills, gasp in amazement and wonder, and are wanting an exhibition of fun, and to be thoroughly entertained, I would have no hesitation in recommending the lovely Oliver Parker – magician extraordinaireOliver personifies all that is MAGIC…brilliant just brilliant.

Thank you so much Oliver - you were AMAZING!!! We are so pleased we decided to choose you to entertain our guests with your close up magic for an hour or so at our wedding. Everyone was stunned by your magic and you are still a very hot topic of conversation even now! We are so glad you were part of our special day. You were a delight to work with, a lovely guy, and so on the ball with correspondence before the wedding which was great! We’re honestly going to recommend you to everyone🙂Our friends are still talking about the ring trick …where it mysteriously jumps on top of someone hand!!! How do you do that??? I guess it simply is magic!
