Full Description
We are a company of Leading West End Musical and Opera artistes that specialise in providing our clients with a professional theatre style undercover show. From the moment the guests arrive, our actors will be interacting with them whilst playing a number of characters ranging from 'sweet, shy foreign waiters', event staff, chefs, managers and even planted wedding guests! These actors cleverly blend in with the other venue staff without anyone suspecting a thing. They wait until the perfect moment to create a scenario which starts off the show taking everyone by surprise because of their outstanding vocals and unique performance! We take the wedding party through a journey, from emotional operactic numbers to fun pop medleys! We will get everybody up on their feet (and up on their chairs!), having a fantastic time as well as standing gobsmacked by the power of sensational voices. Our West End-like show includes a sound technician who provides the best equipment and monitors the sound throughout the performance to create a seamless transition from 'waiter' to 'performer' and to let the surprise truly shock everyone! We make sure the wedding is unique and extra special, completely tailored to the couples taste. When it comes to booking entertainment for a wedding, we are a company that no one will ever forget!

Totally surpassed all expectations!
They were amazing, totally surpassed all expectations!! I booked them for my wedding and I’ve had so much guest feedback saying how they were the best part of the day! The venue have even said that they’ve seen lots of waiter acts and they were the best! I managed to keep the act a surprise from everyone and the look on my new husbands face and all of my guests was priceless! Everyone loved ‘Pawel’ the waiter and were so concerned when he fell over! Then absolutely blown away and in some cases moved to tears by the beautiful voices!! Highly recommended, I’m trying to think of another occasion where I can book them already!!!

Amazing!
Gavin and Cleo were amazing. Guests commented on them being their favourite waiters before the singing started. The fall was so realistic that even I questioned if it was real! Once they started everyone was in the party mood all through the day. It was such a great way to break up the formality of the wedding breakfast. We had them back for a set and from the moment they started our dancefloor was full! All our guests and suppliers have commented on how great they are, lots of suppliers even mentioned they were the best that have seen. Would recommend to anyone.

They got everyone going and really performed well, I can not recommend them enough! Also, they are really friendly and were so easy to book and arrange things with. Thank you for making the day special.

They are FANTASTIC!
WOW OH WOW They are FANTASTIC!! I'd arranged The Singing Waiter Masters for a surprise for my husband-to-be on our wedding day. Even though I knew what was coming I was utterly blown away. The videos do not fully display the talent that Gavin and his team have. Our guests are still talking about how amazing they are and i've no doubt they'll still be talking about them in months to come. I wanted to organise something special, that reflects my husbands personality, and The surprise of The Singing Waiter Masters was perfect! I will always treasure the reaction my Husband had when Gavin started to sing..."I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind..." after a long and heartfelt apology for falling over and making a scene with a tray full of cutlery. Gavin made a brilliant impression on our guests while posing as a waiter, while Mandy was our Maitre d' and kept a watchful eye on the running of the wedding breakfast. Gavin is passionate and enthusiastic about doing the very best for his customers. He's a kind person and despite Gavin and his team being busy, you feel like you're the only wedding they're organising. Gavin is thorough and ensures the absolute smooth running of the surprise. Additional to all of this, The Wedding Singing Masters are FANTASTIC! They are super talented, their performance will blow your mind. Mandy, your operatic singing is out of this world!! Thank you both for making the surprise so magical and being a part of our wedding day. THANK YOU from us both!!

I get goosebumps!
I do not know how to say THANK YOU enough! Yours and Shelly's performance at our wedding was outstanding! Truly! Every time I tell people about it, I get goosebumps. You are both so talented, listening to you was such a treat. But it was so much more than that. It was convincing everyone you were a waiter and a manager, so much so that the level of shock and surprise in that room was tangible. The effort and enthusiasm you put into singing and engaging all of the guests was such a pleasure to watch. Getting EVERYONE up on their feet and dancing, even our elderly relatives, unreal. The joy in the room was something we will never forget. Our guests are still telling us how much they enjoyed both of your performances now. We've been told by lots of our guests that its the best thing they have ever seen at a wedding. One of our favourite moments of our wedding day was looking around the room and seeing all the people we loved, this was trumped when we saw them all smiling and dancing and having the best time and that is because of you. So thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for the happiest moments that we will never ever forget. You're amazing and it is so appreciated!

What is your most memorable wedding?

This is a hard one! Every wedding is unique in its own way but one that sticks out in our minds was a recent wedding where the Mother of the Bride surprised the happy couple with our fabulous singing waiter performance. They had no idea that we, 'waiters' and 'events staff', had been there all day serving them. Once the show began, we blasted into 'Shake it off', chosen by the Mother of the Bride for her Taylor Swift loving daughter. When it came to the rap, the beautiful bride wowed everyone by rapping with confidence and her sassy attitude! We were bowled over and her guests and husband absolutely loved it! The atmosphere in the room was electric and the whole wedding party got into the party spirit and danced the evening away! We had so much fun too!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Unique, surprising, impressive, entertaining, memorable.

What about your business are you most proud of?

We are incredibly proud of our company and the team. All of our artistes have a long list of credits, from the West End to the Royal Opera House. But the thing we are most proud of is providing a memorable performance for happy couples who are starting the first day of the rest of their lives together! We are proud to be part of their special day!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

We suggest that every couple should do their research when wedding planning. The wedding industry is a crowded place, yet their are fantastic entertainers and suppliers out there who will bend over backwards to make your special day perfect. Watch videos, read reviews, listen to recommendations, chat to the company and those who will be responsible for your wedding day. If your gut tells you it's right, go for it, but if your gut reaction doesn't feel right, continue to search for the suppliers that are right for you. Wedding planning is stressful at times but the right supplier will make the process enjoyable and exciting too!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

As soon as we receive an enquiry we talk to the bride and groom about their preferences and we advise those who are not too sure what they would like! We talk about the wedding, discussing the different scenarios which could take place (could a waiter fall over/could it be the chefs last day?). Clients can also ask for a particular special song or any other special requests. Once the initial ideas are in place, we contact the venue and any other professional who may be involved in the day (such as caterers, photographers, videographers etc) to ensure everyone knows what is going to happen. We borrow uniforms and mingle in with staff so nobody would ever guess we are actors! Before the wedding day, we contact the bride and groom to assure them that all is prepared and ready to go (and to have a general chit chat!). The clients just need to sit back and relax from the moment of booking us!

What makes a romantic first dance?

We love it when couples dance to a meaningful song - something which is special to them or their families. We often stay and sing for the first dance and the mix of the couples happiness, a fantastic live voice and the sentimental song leads to an emotional and memorable first dance. However, we have also helped couples choreograph fun dance routines where we have cut and mixed songs together which surprises all the guests! As you can see, we do love a surprise!

What is your number one floor-filler?

Our show ranges from opera to pop and we purposely tailor it so that the show starts with the 'wow' factor and gradually builds to a vibrant party atmosphere! We always get everyone up and dancing no matter the combination of songs but some of our personal favourites are 'All that jazz', the classic 'Abba medley' and 'That's Amore' where we get the entire wedding party swinging their napkins around their heads! Another 'floor filler' but in a different way, is our finale, where everyone stands gobsmacked by our artistes incredible voices! It will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up!

Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?

Ooo this is a toughie! As all of our artistes have been leading roles in the West End, most of them would like to have been in those roles in rel life! For example, one of our artistes played 'Scaramouche' in 'We Will Rock You' so they would have loved to have been part of Queen. Another performer has played 'Elvis' in 'Elvis the Musical' so he would have loved to have sung with the King. The Rat Pack is also another obvious favourite and we also have a soft spot for groups such as 'Il Divo'

What is the soundtrack to your life?

We would have to say all of the Musicals and Operas we've been in! Hits from 'Les Miserables', 'Joseph and his Technicolour Dreamcoat', 'The Phantom of the Opera', 'Carmen', 'Grease', 'Evita', 'Beauty and the Beast', 'Street Scene', 'We Will Rock You'...the list goes on!
