People describe his work as ‘awesome’, ‘incredible’ and ‘amazing’.

Now judges of a top awards ceremony have been dazzled by Tim Lichfield’s conjuring skills too.

Tim was named Best Magician for weddings in Yorkshire and the North East at The Wedding Industry Awards.

Usually a live event, this year The Wedding Industry Awards went online.

It recognises those who have helped couples make their special day run smoothly, from venues to florists, photographers to the all-important dress.

Tim, from Northallerton, said: “It was an absolute honour to win this title, especially with how hard the industry has been hit since the first lockdown.

“It’s been a year of postponements, cancellations, disappointment and false hope for not only the suppliers, but more importantly, the couples who had their special day planned for 2020.”

‘Magic is my passion’

Tim, who is also a presenter on YorkMix Radio, first became interested in magic at the age of seven after receiving a Paul Daniels magic book and hasn’t stopped since.

He decided to make magic his profession alongside his broadcasting career five years ago – and hasn’t looked back.

“Magic is my passion,” he says. “When I entertain at weddings and events, it makes all the hard practice, time and effort worthwhile when I see the look on peoples’ faces!

“Winning this award truly means a lot and gives me the determination to work harder.”
