What is Words Work Wonders?
Words Work Wonders is the creative concept of British writer, actor and poet Alex Gwyther. After being hired to write bespoke poems at corporate events for MasterCard and the Children's Literature Awards and after such positive feedback, Alex wanted to expand this unique form of events entertainment to more personal occasions and from this Words Work Wonders was born.

Where Did It Come From?
The idea and theory behind Words Work Wonders lies, quite simply, in the name itself. As a writer and poet, I believe that words can be utilised in just as poignant a way as a photograph might be cherished, and these words can be beautifully woven together to capture a moment, or an event - the real reason as to why people are joined to celebrate can be forgotten. Words Work Wonders aims to capture this moment using stories and memories offered through interacting with the guests. I've seen it bring people to tears and roar with laughter, and I'd like to be able to bring Words Work Wonders to as many occasions as possible" - Alex Gwyther.
