Undercover Artists UK
Winners of the “Best Musical Act 2019” in the West Midlands and National Finalists at "The Wedding Industry Awards", Undercover Artists combine the talents of West End performers to bring you the best surprise entertainment for your guests!
Their team will create a bespoke package tailor made to your needs, and using the same core performers ensures that we deliver a highly choreographed and polished show. Performing for 30 minutes, singing waiters will integrate themselves into your special day, taking on the role of the wait staff or one of your guests before bursting into song, getting everyone involved.
Undercover Artists UK can also provide alternative entertainment, from Classical Duos, to Party Bands, Frozen Characters and Drag Artistes!
Unlike other companies, they don't like causing a negative atmosphere by starting with an argument, or bringing a chef out who hasn't been seen throughout the entire meal. They like to use one of their female waitresses who has been serving you all day. As the last dessert has been placed on the table, one of their team will be walking through the room with a very large tray of spoons ready to place them on another table, only as they do so, they fall and trip on the floor falling flat on their face, causing a massive commotion. As guests go to help them up, one of the other waiters will start the music, and the waitress who has fallen on the floor will get up and start singing, andthe fun will commence!
So if you're looking for a super fun quirky surprise entertainment option for your big day, get in touch with Undercover artists UK!
Katherine runs a super awesome streamer banner and backdrop hire company called Streamadelica! Her Leeds based started after she created a streamer backdrop for her own wedding two years ago, having searched in vain for a UK supplier after seeing lots of incredible streamer creations on Pinterest by makers in the US and Australia. Since then she's created installations for a vintage clothing company, a kids play centre, the fabulous bridal studio at Lucy Can’t Dance in Essex and the terrace of a local cafe. However her passion is creating unique and show stopping installations for weddings and events!
Sustainability is really important to Katherine and she wants to offer a fun, creative decor alternative to single use plastics. Whilst our products are made from plastic they are hire pieces, so are made to be used over and over again! They’re a weatherproof, zero waste option for your amazing event. After the party’s over they’re packed up and sent back ready to be hired out again!
Streamadelica offers a wide range of flat and metallic colours (so there are loads of options for colour combinations), and a range of services from hire-only to full installation and styling for your event. If you really want one to keep at home, there's also a range of string banners which you can keep forever and use indoors, in the garden, at the park - or as a cape for when you finally get to go to a festival!

Bespoke Veils by Anne Marie
Specialising in machine embroidery, Ann Marie designs and makes bespoke wedding veils that are individually created to a bride’s own specification. She offers a real alternative option to veils readily found in bridal boutiques. Made from a quality tulle that is selected for its drape and qualities, every veil is cut shaped and made to complement both the bride and her gown.
As she digitises all of her own embroidery patterns, a bride can choose what she would like to have on her wedding veil and Anne Marie will work with her to bring those ideas to life. There is a wide portfolio of embroidery patterns that can be used as a starting point as well as monograms, dates, phrases and quotations can all be added to personalise a veil.
Anne Marie loves working with colour. There is no hard and fast rule that says veils have to be white, so from the smallest of touches, to adding the full spectrum of colour, she is able to create beautiful veils that add the real ‘WOW’ factor and a talking point beyond any bride’s wedding day!
