Q. We've heard of singing waiters, but don't know much more. We'd love to surprise our guests. What can we expect?

A. Paula Heron Phillips says: Singing waiters provide surprise event entertainment that gets any party started. Our professional singers arrive at your event before your guests and carry out a cheeky sound check, then we'll get into our waiter uniforms and go undercover. This brings us to the fun part where we get to know your guests while being disguised as waiters. We hand out canapés, pour wine and just generally blend in. Then, when the moment is right, BANG we perform the biggest surprise and go from waiters to singers, bursting into song. We sing an interactive set of songs that will have napkins waving in the air, hands clapping and guests singing along. Whatever the atmosphere you want to create for your wedding, singing waiters can make it happen.

We form Team Secret along with your venue and suppliers, liaising with them about your day and making plans behind the scenes. All you need to do is pick the songs and we can even help with that. We'll make sure your wedding is memorable for years to come, after all memories are precious and we just love making them. Remember though, it's a surprise, so don't tell anyone else!

Q. We're super-excited about our Christmas wedding and want to include a nod to the festive season in our entertainment, without veering too much towards the tacky! What would you suggest?

A. Paul Webber says: If you want a hint of the festive season without going too cheesy or overboard at your special celebration, there's a great version of Paul McCartney's Wonderful Christmastime by Jars of Clay that you could factor in. It really is wonderful, without being OTT. Try it!
