Dalek to serve royal wedding drinks

One Royal Wedding street party is set to have a waiter with a difference - a Dalek serving up trays of drinks and sandwiches.
Doctor Who fan Chris Balcombe spent a week transforming the Dalek, painting it in red, white and blue and festooning it with flags.
He said: "I got the party accessories from the Hampshire Flag Company in Waterlooville.
"They supplied the flag bunting and hand flags because so many places had sold out."
A picture of Wills and Kate has pride of place between the normally lethal ray gun and plunger arms.
And in place of the familiar black plunger, he created a mechanical grip to allow the dalek to carry trays piled high with drinks and sandwiches.
Mr Balcombe, 51, from Hampshire, a collector of sci-fi props, has been a dalek operator for the BBC and also 'drove' one in a Kitkat advert which starred Kelly Brook and Lemmy from Motorhead.
"I have three daleks, and this year I thought I should create something special in honour of William marrying Kate," he said.
"It took ages, but if it brings a smile to people's faces then it's been worth it. It's not everyday we get a Royal Wedding, so it was well worth the effort.
"Besides, I bet our Friday bash is going to be the only street party with a dalek serving up the grub!"

  2. It's amazing royal wedding drinks and good taste to drink. But it is bit costlier one. If any couples needs the whole resources of wedding, they may use the wedding planner iPhone app and Plan the wedding easily.
