Well, how about finding out more about wedding swing singer, William May?

I have been performing as a wedding singer in Warwickshire for many years and have been fortunate enough to play at some incredible weddings and to share in the celebrations of special couples across the region. I love entertaining the brides, grooms and wedding guests of Warwickshire with my swing covers and up-beat tracks, and I guarantee a performance that will entertain everyone at your party.

What is a wedding singer & why should I book William May?

Well, wedding singers, cover bands and party bands in Warwickshire have one thing in common; they perform your favourite songs, and some extra hits for good measure, for you and your wedding party to enjoy until the early hours.

William May is different to all the other wedding singers for hire in Warwickshire though. I am a Rat Pack singer who combines classic covers by Nat King Cole and Rat Pack members including Frank Sinatra with contemporary hits by Robbie Williams to Michael Buble, to get your guests dancing until the lights go up. I perform with the best backing tracks that are all produced to the original arrangements. There is something for everyone in my set.

William’s performance was superb. A true crooner with an amazing voice that pleased the crowd. He didn’t just pull of the classics, he was able to enchant the crowd with a number of modern (Buble & Robbie) swing numbers as well. He even kindly let a few more humble individuals join himself on stage for a song or two. If you want an evening of swing to remember make sure you book William May -Sean

William May performs at around 100 weddings in Warwickshire each year and whilst I love all the songs I play, I prefer the bride and groom to send me their requests (and non-requests!) before the big day arrives, so I can fill their celebration with songs that are special to them. I also take requests from guests on the night and can also provide a DJ option to cover all the entertainment for your wedding.

With years of experience as a wedding singer in Warwickshire, I’m delighted to have been the wedding singer of choice for so many couples in the region. You can read their reviews on my website.

I’m proud to be known for being entertaining, passionate about what I do, and professional. I think it’s the duty of the wedding singer to be ready and waiting to get the party started when everyone arrives. I promise to do just that, but also go above and beyond to ensure that newlyweds and their guests have a fabulous time from beginning to end.

Venues I've sung at

Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to perform and work with some amazing venues in Warwickshire including the luxurious and beautiful Ardencote Manor Hotel, the historic Honiley Court Hotel, the magnificent Brownsover Hall and the timeless surroundings of Dunchurch Park. I can adapt my performance, sound and lighting to suit the grandest of venues or the most intimate of settings across the region. Nothing is too much to ask.

I have also performed at special venues in the surrounding area, including Menzies Welcombe Hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon, the Saxon Mill in Guy’s Cliffe, Warwick House near Leamington Spa, Chesford Grange Hotel near Leamington Spa and Bosworth Hall Hotel & Spa, Billesley Manor Hotel, Macdonald Ansty Hall and Ettington Park Hotel.

William May was spectacular in his singing and entertaining. He was such a nice man and made it his sole role to ensure our wedding was spot on and he easily achieved that. William singing our first dance was amazing; his voice really suited the song. When he sang his Rat Pack songs it was incredible and he had so many people on the dance floor enjoying themselves. Did he meet our expectations? No. He went much further than we expected, he wasn't a 10/10 or 11/10 he was a 19/10, BRILLIANT! Thank you Alive Network & William May for making our special day the best of mine and Becky's lives. -Mike & Becky
William May was one of the highlights of our wedding. From the very beginning he got the dance floor going – which was one of the worries we had before our day. The worries were soon put to bed with his fantastic performance & amazing vocals. Everyone had commented on his voice and pitch perfect performance. Any worries about having this type of singer over a conventional band should be laid to rest as the dance floor was packed from beginning to end. At the end of the singing - William turned into our resident DJ, playing great party music which went on all night. His charisma, performance and accommodating attitude to our requests is top notch and a sign of a real performer. I would highly recommend William as your evening music choice, far better than a rock band - and even rockers in our crowd (which there were many) danced along all night. I would definitely choose William and definitely hire him again for a future special occasion. -Paul
William just a belated thank you for the amazing music you provided at our wedding at Hemswell Court. Having you singing live as well as providing the disco really helped make the evening reception into something special - so much so that the groom couldn‘t stop dancing all night! You sang our wedding song to perfection, continuing to sing a wide range of tunes from Rat Pack to Robbie Williams, keeping all ages entertained. All of our guests commented on your wonderful voice and how well you sang throughout the evening. Once again many thanks and we’d happily recommend you without hesitation in the future. -Claire

Anything else I need to know?

As with many Warwickshire wedding singers, I will bring my own equipment to your wedding reception, including the PA, all the lighting you will need to make your venue look stunning and of course, my stage attire. I also DJ and am always very happy to do this – again, the more requests the better! It’s also a great idea to have a stage so that everyone in your venue can see the performance (I appreciate this isn’t always possible though). For any enquiries about booking me as a DJ or about staging, please contact Alive Network.

I appreciate it if you can provide a comfy room with a full length mirror (not just a toilet!) and a lock where I can freshen up and store my belongings during the evening. Water and free soft drinks are also gratefully received too.

It’s really helpful to have a point of contact for when I arrive and if someone from the venue can brief me about the venue that’s great – it’s helps me set things up a lot quicker.

As with all great things, wedding receptions have to come to an end eventually, so it’s well worth making it run as smoothly as possible (nominate someone to watch the clock so you don’t have to!). Of course I am delighted to play for longer for a small cost but it’s always dependent on the venue and any council restrictions, so it’s well worth checking this out in advance.
