Searching for award-winning information about one of the UK’s leading group of singing waiters? Step right up!
Here at The Undercover waiters, based in Leeds, we’re always super proud when we make our client’s special day or big event a one to remember. And to be acknowledged for our passion for the work we do by one of one our industry’s leading magazines is a humbling feeling!
We were super sad to hear the news this year that the annual I Do Wedding Awards wouldn’t be taking place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So, in this blog, we thought we’d take a trip down memory lane and look back two massive achievements in our world. What are they, we hear you cry? Well, as leading singing waiters in Yorkshire, we’ve won the Wedding Entertainment award for two years in a row as well as being finalist for Best In Exhibition too.
Just to re-cap, I Do Magazine, who have been very kind to us since our formation, hold an annual award ceremony recognising the finest suppliers in Yorkshire, Humberside and East Midlands. The voting is all done by previous Brides and Grooms and we’re honoured to have their support.
In this post, we caught up with our Managing Director and founder, Michael Sharpe-Kemp, to find out more.
This wonderful event takes place May of each year at the esteemed Sheffield City Hall. We’ve all been hit hard by Coronavirus and were sad to hear this year’s gathering for secret singers and wedding industry leaders had to be postponed. But we’ll all be back together soon, raring to go!
We were nominated for the award originally by our previous couples and went on to win the award in 2018 and 2019. We are finalists in 2020 but of course, the world has temporarily come to standstill, so we must wait a little while longer to find out if we have won the award for the 3rd year running.
To win the award first time round was incredible and winning it a second time was equally amazing. To be recognised in Yorkshire and Humberside two years in row as supplying the Best Wedding Entertainment, well, there is no better feeling.
My whole team work so hard and to be recognised as the best in our area there literally are no words.
Each waiter brings something so unique to the table and winning the award cemented that we are doing something right. We love to be part of so many people’s days, so to win an award for doing something we love, is just amazing!
Decided as a result of the votes cast by all of the lovely couples who have used the nominated suppliers at their weddings, the I DO Wedding Awards are as unique as they are special.
Last year, over 400 entrants took part and we were flawed and humbled to be one of the 130 that made it all of the way to the finals, and then go on to WIN!
We want to place on record our gratitude to them for raising our profile and to our dear brides and grooms who help make us what we are.
