Having worked at some of London's top hotels, events and parties, Melanie is very qualified to run all aspects of your special day. Melanie is equally comfortable managing your intimate reception at home, to organising and running a large staff team working together to provide exquisite service.

As Wedding Butlers we can either provide the very formal, classic butler look with tails and stripe trousers, or a more relaxed (but professional) look to complement the look and mood of your special day. Rik is pictured providing a bespoke Butler service to VVIP guests at a corporate dinner for a worldwide computing company at Old Billingsgate Market in London
Not only has Rik worked at London's most exclusive Hotel, he has also been part of the team at events from the Brit Awards to the Chelsea Flower Show, and some of the top events venues across London and now the Midlands, including the Tower of London, Kensington Palace and almost every part of Hampton Court Palace! With 30 years experience in the industry, working his way from Barman to Restaurant Manager for a major Global Brand Rik is just as comfortable out in front performing the duties of an MC/Toastmaster as he is in the kitchen ensuring food comes out on time, or pouring the bubbles ready for the toasts
A regular jacket worn with the striped trousers and waistcoat allows for a slightly more relaxed, and yet still formal look. The white gloves add that classic touch. Rik is pictured providing a personal service to an American family on a private boat on the River Thames on New Years Eve 2015
"This event was so memorable! The end client was a gorgeous Texan family - just 8 of them - who had booked the boat to celebrate New Years Eve. They wanted the full "English" package so I met them and escorted them on to the boat, gave them a string of London trivia facts as we sailed up river, served them a delicious dinner then accompanied them as they watched the London fireworks.
Work can be so much fun!"
