Guy’s Blog Entry

Hi All

Hope the world is a damn fine place for you at the minute.

Okay so April has been crazy, I’m trying to do so many things and running out of time which is rather inconvenient! Let’s add another day to the week, call it…Wonday that means we’d all have an 8 day week, I’m in. Please vote yes if you’re in.

So plans for my video are going well, pre shoot Friday this week then the actual filming next week, really looking forward to it, should be a lot of fun.

The end of March and early April have been full of Weddings and parties, it’s always a busy time around the school holidays with lots of mid-week weddings. I’ve been lucky enough to be at Wasing Park a lot recently such a fab venue. Thanks to all those weddings and parties I’ve attended recently.

On that point, thank you to all those people that send feedback it’s really good of you to take the time. I’ve been a bit slack of late putting them on my site, I’ve got a long back log to post so will continue to add some to this blog which will remind me to upload them more regularly. Below are some of the ones I’ve had back for March/April events this year. A cross section of weddings, trade shows and charity work.

“Guy Portlock brought some Magic to Burnham Beeches Wedding fair! Not only does he have the charm factor, but also a very sophisticated magic act. If I had any doubt that a magic act has a place at a wedding, Guy proved that it most definitely has a very entertaining value!”

“One of our guests summed up the decision to hire you for our wedding as ‘INSPIRED’! We totally agree, you brought people together and made them laugh with enjoyment and amazement. What more could we have asked. Everyone was buzzing with ‘wow – how did he do that?’ and are still talking about the phone number trick! Your ability to entertain at close hand with such professionalism and charm brought that little bit extra to the party making it a truly enjoyable evening for all. The icing on the cake. We had a wonderful time and thank you for going the extra mile- We are so glad we made that decision 2 years ago (before we even had the venue) to book you. We were soooooo lucky to find you! It was as they say magic…..!!!!”“We just wanted to say a massive thank you for providing your magic entertainment at our wedding at Taplow House on the 23rd!!

You were amazing and everyone has given us such great feedback for you :-) Thank you so much for adding to our special day, we’ll never forget it!!

All the best.”

Zoe & Clive (Hughes!)


“Just wanted to thank you for putting on a great show on Friday night, the guests haven’t stopped taking about it and I have been asked by 2 people for your details for future events. You really added something memorable to our special evening and we are very grateful. Thank you.” 


“I just wanted to say a huge huge thank you for coming along on Friday, it was so great to have you there, everyone is still talking about your magic, it really was very special and so kind of you to make the time to come.

The night raised over £1700 for Naomi house so a massive thank you on behalf of them, it was a great night and it was lovely to have you there. Best Wishes.” Charlotte


“Thanks so much for everything you did at the show – all reports were that you were quite the star. Customers seemed to love the range and your demos and the vibe was excellent. Hope it wasn’t too draining for you.
A very big thank you again – for your boundless energy and making the stand buzz with excitement. If anyone ever asks for a recommendation, your name will be first.” NEC Trade show


In other news, really enjoying the new suede album Bloodsports, a return to form for sure, reminds me of the early stuff from Dog Man Star. Also if you like a chilled out album check out Bill Ryder- Jones record- A bad wind blows in my heart.

Fitness challenge this month- do a 100 jumps before lunch, nothing like bouncing around with all this spring sunshine coming up! Boom!

Sweet potatoe, love it, try a spicy mash or jacket or seasoned chips, very good for you!

Okay all for now, more news and views to come!
