The Tailors Surprise Singers are a viral sensation, with over 100M views across their socials for their personalised performances! Recently featured on Newlyweds Podcast, they have performed at weddings and events all over the UK, Europe, and North America.

This London-based group takes the 'singing waiter' experience to new heights - not only do they go undercover to surprise all your wedding guests, but they change all the lyrics to be about the happy couple, their unique love story, and members of the wedding party.

Clips of their unforgettable performances often go viral on social media, because they have your guests belly laughing one moment, and in (good) tears the next! The act is incredibly clever, wholesome and funny... and the most common piece of feedback they receive is...
"That was the BEST THING I've EVER SEEN at a wedding!"

Absolute awesome and helped make our day extra special!!

It was an absolutely fantastic day and the amount of people that said to my wife and I how good Jem and Maddy were was unbelievable...they went down an absolute storm!!

We went to a wedding some 6 weeks previous to ours and they too had singing waiters who were also good but their songs were very generic and none of the songs made reference to any of their guests or even the bride and groom. It was therefore fantastic the way in which you took the detail that my daughter and I gave you and you then converted that into so many different songs (circa 8), that really flowed, and made so many people laugh!!

I could not recommend you, Jem and Maddy enough....absolutely fantastic ad really help to make our day so very special!!!

Created even more memories & laughter on our wedding day!

Absolutely amazing. I booked the Tailors Surprise Singers for our wedding (July 2023) and they did not disappoint.

The preparation was brilliant. A form to fill out and chat with Alex. Then regular communication as needed to finalise the finer details.

Alex worked with me to create the best surprise for my wife. I loved the fact they were open to me having ideas on how they could transition from waiters to singers. They didn't just support my vision, they embraced it! I pretended to sing (I can't!) a song and Josh jumped in to 'save me from further embarrassment'!

Every song was funny. Alex had learnt (very quickly!) where the relevant guests were sitting. The songs were just brilliant. I loved the way Alex and Josh managed to get a few words of Spanish in to the songs too.

Our guest loved it, everyone including 90year old grandma, were on their feet and singing along. A month later its still being spoken about as the best wedding entertainment.

It is also worth noting their commitment to their roles. We found out that they had a nightmare journey from London to Shropshire. They could have given up and refunded us, but they didn't. They both preserved and somehow got to the venue to set up and prepare.

Absolutely amazing!

Well… where do I start… booking the tailors surprise singers for our wedding day was 100% the best decision we made!! I’ve been watching their Instagram page and it all looked amazing, but on the day, they were even better than I could have imagined ❤️ the way they personalise everything is just incredible! Our only regret was not getting it filmed, however we do have some photos and the memories will last forever! Thank you so much Alex & Jem for being there on our social day and absolutely smashing it 🎉
