Meet matthew

Matthew Le Mottée is a world class magician in Oxford with impeccable style and finesse.

Immaculately dressed, with his trademark cravat, Matthew arrives ready to impress, performing incredible close-up magic for clients around the world.

Based in the UK, Matthew is the resident magician in Cambridge, working at The Double Tree by Hilton, the Varsity roof top bar and with over 20 of Cambridge's most prestigious Universities baffling some of the brightest minds in the world. 

 

 

 

International Magician

Matthew is a magician in Oxford, his work has seen him whisked away working in places such as Norway, Sweden, Germany and Spain to name a few.

Matthew is also frequently hired to attend events in London, enjoying venues such as The Savoy, Café Royal, The Hippodrome Casino, Café Du Paris and Little Italy, creating unforgettable memories of astonishment with some of London's most jaded audiences. 

CONTEMPORARY magic

Matthew's repertoire is extraordinarily vast, studying the art since he was just a child, he has accumulated a mass of experience and knowledge enabling him to refine and perfect the skills required to give a professional performance to high polish.

The items included are truly stunning, metal bends, borrowed rings are vanished in to flames and signed playing cards are found frozen in time, encased in inch thick blocks of ice.

parlour show

Experience a private viewing of some of Matthew's original conjuring presentations. 

The show explores 'the butterfly effect' the idea that "a single flap of a butterflies wing, high above the amazon rainforest, can cause a hurricane over Kansas city 3 years later"

Free will, decisions and choice are all explored and questioned, leaving guests with something to converse and think about following the show.

Close-Up Magic

Close-up magic is one of the finest forms of entertainment a person can experience.

Close-up magic does exactly what is says, it's magic performed just a few inches form your eyes. Sometimes the magic happens right in your hands, at your finger tips and sometimes even inside your mind as thoughts and actions can be read with incredible accuracy using a very specific skill set. Being a magician in Windsor I work regularly for some the countries most intelligent minds and this has made my magic more sophisticated to ensure even most skeptical of people are entertained and left baffled.

 

MY APPROACH 

I incorporate a mixture of skills to create the illusion of the impossible in to my performances.

Metal bends, fire bursts, object move and minds are read all for entertainment and amusement. I borrow objects such as finger rings, bank notes and coins to demonstrate miracles and create lasting memories.

 

CORPORATE EVENTS

Being the corporate magician in Oxford I provided entertainment to event organisers and companies from University faculties to large blue chip businesses, all wanting to add something extra special to enhance their social functions.

Whether it's a new product launch, an away day or a Christmas party, the ability to light up a room of people leaving them excited, talking and leaving them with lasting memories of impossible moments.

 

CHRISTMAS PARTIES

December is a time which brings great demand on my services, a time for celebrating it is indeed. I am frequently booked for corporate Christmas parties, venues holding festive events and at Manors in and around Oxford looking to impress their clients.

WEDDING MAGIC

Being a wedding magician in Oxford I have had the pleasure of working in some the finest manors and houses in the area.

Weddings present 3 points where a sudden loss of momentum can appear and with my help these can be transformed in to smooth transitions and highlights during the day!

BOOKING

The usual amount of time needed for a wedding day is 2 to 3 hours, depending on your schedule and the amount of guests attending.

I can advise a suitable period of time that will allow for everyone to be dazzled and spellbound on your special day!

Matthew,
I wanted to thank you for your great work yesterday, everyone was raving about you and you were even better than we could have hoped.

You really made it extra special. We’re off on honeymoon it was great meeting you.

Tom, groom.

THE DRINKS RECEPTION

A time just after the ceremony where guests are unleashed to mingle amongst themselves, comments on the wonderful dress, the weather and the beautiful venue soon dry up and the ice is soon in need of breaking. This is where I can brighten up the space and begin subtly approaching groups breaking the ice among guests and creating a unique talking point, this keeps the momentum moving until the guests are called for the wedding breakfast.

PHOTOS

On occasion the photos play a big part of the newly weds special day after all capturing everyone in varying groups makes for a superb photo album. On the day this procedure of waiting to be called for can drag a little for the guests, this time can be filled with excitement and entertainment as those waiting their turn get to see quick and visual moments of magic, speeding the process along with style.

The Wedding Breakfast

Your guests are called though to the dinning room to be seated, now your beloved friends and family are potentially sitting with people they may not know, perfect! I seize this opportunity to seamlessly move from table to table performing table side miracles that get everyone involved, laughing and gasping from astonishment! I use fire and money and borrow rings and bottles to create lasting memories of impossible moments!

Wedding Date Enquiry

I know our guests truly enjoyed the magic, it really was fantastic. My friend Jo is convinced you’d be able to do some crazy voodoo and make sure she has a pain free labour!!

We still have our mementos from the day, we have put them all into a memory box to treasure forever.

Lauren, Bride

Accomplishments

MEMBERSHIP – AWARDED A.I.M.C WITH SILVER STAR, THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF MEMBERSHIP TO THE MAGIC CIRCLE BY EXAMINATION UPON MY ENTRANCE EXAM, LONDON, 2012.

The Magic Circle is the most prestigious magic society in the world, established in 1905 with a long history of legendary magicians gracing its club room. The society has its own building In Eustion London and holds weekly club nights for it's members, what goes on within the building should be kept a mystery however if you manage to get tickets to one of the public days or show nights you might catch a glimpse of what is inside the 'house of 10,000 secrets'.

INTERNATIONAL WORK – 100 SHOWS IN JUST 10 WEEKS AT 'THE HOUSE OF ILLUSION', SPAIN 2010.

The House of Illusion is a magic venue in the Spanish town of Salou, It boasts being voted the number one thing to do in the whole of the Costa Dorada for 10 years running. Each year brings a new show with a new cast and it continues to excel year upon year. A large number of previous magicians have gone on to become successful working on Luxury Cruise liners and becoming well known among peers in the magic industry.

LUXURY CRUISE LINERS - GUEST PERFORMER ON LUXURY CRUISE LINERS ACROSS SWEDEN, FINLAND, NORWAY AND GERMANY 2011, 2012, 2013 AND 2014.

My first ship experience was a mixture of performing a segment form my stage show for audiences of up to 1000 prior to the evening production show and performing close-up in the top deck bar. It was a fantastic experience working for an international audience each night and having the opportunity to visit and get to know the ports we docked at each day.

SHOWS – 'PROFESSIONAL MAGIC PRESENTS' - PRODUCED, DIRECTED AND STARRED IN A FULL 2 HOUR MAGIC AND ILLUSION SHOW WITH A CAST OF 5 OTHERS, AT THE MUMFORD THEATRE, CAMBRIDGE, 2010,

In 2010 I conceptualised the idea of a stage show and invited colleagues to make the cast, directed and co-produced by myself the show included 2 other magicians a compare and a singer. The 2 hour show was a huge success, including big Vegas style illusions, mind reading and comedy magic. 

CHARITY SHOWS– 'ONE NIGHT ONLY' 2013 AND 'GIVING MAGIC' IN 2015  - PRODUCED AND STARRED IN AN EVENING OF MAGIC AND MIND READING IN CAMBRIDGE, WITH A  CAST OF TWO, RAISING OVER £1000 FOR MAGGIES' CANCER CHARITY AND ANTHONY NOLAN.

Two shows over the past 3 years raising over £1000 for cancer charities both being hugely gratifying and a joy to hold. Each show was just over 2 hours and had some hidden surprises at the end which got a huge response from audience members afterwards!

Dear Matthew

With all best wishes

“Although a few cocktails later, we probably were a nicely gullible audience for Matthew le Mottee the magician, he was quite overwhelming. If you ask me, these ents catered for both the athletic and the idle. A wonderful marriage between the active and atmospheric.

Dear Matt

Just wanted to say thanks so much for doing such a great job of entertaining everyone, and helping to make our Ladies Festival a great success. There has been nothing but positive feedback and many people have said how much they enjoyed it, and loads of people have said to me 'Wow, I just don't know how he did it'! (Including the catering staff) You really added to the whole atmosphere of the evening.

You have a great ability in the way you engaged with everyone, confident, professional and added humour brilliantly to your magic.

Thanks soooo much and happy to always provide a reference if required.

Best wishes for the future.

I wanted to thank you for your great work yesterday, everyone was raving about you and you were even better than we could have hoped. 

You really made it extra special. We’re off on honeymoon in the morning but if you want a testimonial or anything like that I will definitely sort it when I get back. Thank you again, it was great meeting you.

Tom, Cambridge. ”


“Hi Matthew,

Great to hear from you! Ellie said she had contacted you, it would be so nice to be able to watch your amazing magic again!
 

Please do use any photos you wish, Katharine got some really fab shots - particularly like the one of me looking utterly amazed!

I know our guests truly enjoyed the magic, it really was fantastic. My friend Jo is convinced you’d be able to do some crazy voodoo and make sure she has a pain free labour!!

We still have our mementos from the day, we have put them all into a memory box to treasure forever. 

We had a lovely short break on the Norfolk coast after the wedding, and we’re now waiting impatiently for our “proper” honeymoon to New Zealand in February!

Thank you again for keeping our guests and us so entertained, especially as it was at short notice. 

All the best,

Lauren, Cambridge”


“I am delighted to be able to give a testimonial for Matthew Le Mottée Magician as he recently performed at my daughter’s wedding and he was amazing. 

He entertained all the mixed and varied age groups with much expertise and style.
The content of his performance was based on close up magic which is perhaps the most difficult as all of the spectators are watching every move, I have to say his expertise had all those present desperate to know how certain tricks were performed, but in the end we had to conclude it was pure MAGIC.

Matthew also had the ability to blend in when required and be outstanding when performing, he entertained completing his magic informally at our drinks reception and later during our wedding breakfast with exactly the right amount of magic good humour and charm.

I would go on to say this was the best close up magic performance I have ever seen and would recommend Matthew for any event where I am confident he would give both a professional and extremely clever performance leaving his audience wanting more and still completely baffled by just “how did he do that”

Matthew many thanks for helping our day to be memorable

Chris Millard, Cambridge, Mother of the bride ”
