    Definitions

    I have tried to write this recommendation about 30 times because how do you put into words how sensational Gavin and his team are?
    Even if we take the word sensational:

    sensational
    /sɛnˈseɪʃ(ə)n(ə)l/
    Learn to pronounce
    adjective
    causing great public interest and excitement.

    I mean, yes, The Singing Waiter Masters definitely caused great public interest and monumental excitement on the day, but I feel like that word still doesn't encompass the emotion that was evoked due to their performance. Let's try another: phenomenal

    phenomenal
    /fəˈnɒmɪn(ə)l/
    Learn to pronounce
    adjective
    remarkable or exceptional, especially exceptionally good.

    I feel like we are getting closer here, the team was remarkable AND exceptional!

    No, here we go, I have found it:

    perfection
    /pəˈfɛkʃ(ə)n/
    Learn to pronounce
    noun
    the state or quality of being perfect.

    The Singing Waiter Masters are the purest definition of PERFECTION

    If you are reading this and trying to work out how to make a special day perfect, pick up the phone and call Gavin.

    I thought that couples bullshitted when they used the phrase "happiest day of their lives" when describing their wedding day... but due to Gavin and the team, it truly truly was

    We had a few phone calls with Gavin and he was a true gent and within the first minute of our first conversation he was on board with the sort of day that we wanted, he liaised directly with our venue (Hatfield House) which was brilliant as it was one less thing to have to organise and think about. Then the pièce de résistance was that he listened to all of the speeches on the day and found a way to ensure that his setlist complemented our story! I cannot recommend this man enough!

    Right, enough of my drivel, back to being British with a stiff upper lip...

    The Singing Waiter Masters - you are officially perfect

    Thank you
    Forever and always

    The best wedding surprise ever

    Gavin and Mandy were absolutely brilliant, I cannot recommend The Singing Waiter Masters enough, it’s the part of the wedding we are so happy we kept a secret and because of the performance everyone has said it was the best wedding they’ve ever been too. The whole performance is unbelievable. Firstly, Gavin works all day as a waiter, he was by far the best waiter we had and convinced every guest of his back story as Pavel. My dad was so convinced he was telling me about Pavel’s back story himself during the food. He was brilliantly attentive and kept us topped up on drink throughout the day. When it came to the reveal the look on our guest’s faces was unbelievable. His and Mandy’s voices are incredible and the set helped get everybody in the mood. They do a brilliant job at engaging everyone in the audience no matter the age. Everyone was on their feet cheering and celebrating, it really set the mood for the evening. I would seriously recommend Gavin and team to anyone planning a wedding because it is 110% a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ performance.

    5 stars? How about ten!

    UNREAL! I got in touch with Tulay and Gavin for our April 2020 wedding which ended up postponed until this past weekend. They were fantastic from the start, they listened to everything I wanted to suprise my husband. I just had the torture of keeping this a secret for 18 months longer than I thought! Our venue staff said they have had so many singing waiters before and that these guys were by far and away the best! They sounded amazing, and before that they were entertaining all day long. So many people were saying how funny some of the staff were 🤣🤣🤣 It just went perfectly - everyone was up dancing and singing at the top of their voices. If you want to get your party going BOOK THEM! None of us are over it and we will never forget it X

    Highlight of our day!

    Our guests haven’t stopped talking about the incredible performance by Gavin and his team.
    My husband was in awe throughout the entire performance and our wedding guests were completely blown away.
    Gavin and his team were serving canapés and drinks during the whole day, and many of our guests mentioned that “Pavo” was their favourite waiter!
    It was the absolute highlight of our day (besides getting married of course!) and to see the look on our guests faces is something I’ll never forget!
    Thank you so much!!!!
    Love,
    Mr & Mrs Hubbard

    Didn't want it to end...

    Gavin gave a truly outstanding and award winning performance at our wedding this month. My husband was very skeptical to start however he was totally transformed and loved every second. The act came as a total surprise to the guests, I will never forget the look on their faces. My guests were up dancing within minutes and Gavin made sure everyone was involved and included all the way through the performance. The playlist was perfect, it catered for all ages and tastes.
    It was such a special part of the day and I love looking back at the videos and watching all the happy faces singing and dancing along. Thank you Gavin, we will still be talking about your performance for years to come!!!!

    The Singing Waiter Masters's reply:

    Hi Irene, thank you very much for your kind words. It was great getting to know you both throughout the whole booking process leading up to the day. I'm so happy for you that everyone enjoyed the performance ,The Ned Hotel was such a stunning venue to hold your wedding reception, it was a perfect day. Wishing you both all the best in your marriage. Kind regards Gavin x

    Made our day unforgettable

    The Singing Waiter Masters made our wedding day totally unforgettable.
    From first speaking with Gavin I had every faith they would give us 100% and they absolutely made our day.
    Everyone was totally shocked when the act started, with mouths wide open and some tears in their eyes they were amazed by the talent of the singers. Everyone loved it and we had so many comments on how it was the best wedding they have every been too. Its something our guests and ourselves will never forget and we cant thank you enough x

    The best surprise entertainment act I've ever seen

    From all the weddings I have had the pleasure of photographing this was far the best surprise entertainment act I have ever seen. And I have seen plenty! The artistes who performed on the day were truly incredible and talented which added a special touch to Sarah and Bernard’s already incredible wedding day! Hoping to see you guys at another wedding soon! Best Wishes , Paul Toeman.

    An amazing experience

    Our photographer mentioned the Singing Waiter Masters in one of our meetings and I contacted Gavin to find out more. Within minutes of speaking with Gavin we knew this was something we wanted to do. He sent us videos of previous performances and asked all the right questions putting us at ease. We met up with him and had a little taster of his act but nothing prepared us for the day. Gavin and his team blended into the venue staff and no one suspected a thing as he waited on our guests. When our 'waiter' burst into song at our wedding breakfast everyone was blown away. We had everything from opera to pop and we're serenaded, dancing on chairs and even tears were shed all before we had even got to the speeches.
    An amazing experience which our guests haven't stopped talking about and one which has made our day stand out in their minds.
    A truly professional package from these talented artists and I can't recommend them highly enough we were so lucky to have found them.
    Thank you team!
