Singing Waiters Enjoy Tropical October Temperatures at Brockett Hall in Hertfordshire

5th Oct 2011

What a treat the weather has been this past week! It’s hard to believe we are approaching the month of October with temperatures averaging at 23 degrees celsius! The glorious weather has come as a welcome surprise for brides and grooms tying the knot.  It’s always a good omen if the sun is shining on your wedding day! 

This weekend, our surprise singing waiters performed at a wedding in Hertfordshire.  The venue,  Brockett Hall, is an absolutely spectacular stately home with a long and intriguing history.  It is surrounded by over 500 acres of mature parkland and has stunning views over Broadwater lake.  The fine architecture, oil paintings and antique furnishings inside make it one of England’s finest stately homes.  It claims to have been home to 2 British Prime Ministers and the Waltz was introduced to England by the infamous Lady Caroline Lamb in the ballroom.

Our singing waiter performance was the perfect complement to the historic charm and sophistication of this venue.  Organised as a surprise for his bride-to-be, family and guests, the groom was beaming from ear to ear as our professional opera singers (who had been masquerading as waiters and waitresses during the drinks reception and wedding breakfast) burst into song and provided an exhilarating evening of operatic entertainment.  We have to thanks all the guests who were an absolutely fantastic audience – in fact, probably one of our best audiences to date.  It was also so touching to see how moved the bride was as our tenor sang “Nessun Dorma” as a special dedication to the bride and groom – the singing brought tears to her eyes as she lovingly kissed her husband and thanked him for such a special surprise.

Popular arias and duets delighted guests and the performance ended with guests applauding vigorously in a standing ovation!  We can’t wait to see the photos and wish the bride and groom all the very best in their future lives together!
