My husband booked Emily as a surprise for our wedding. Her performance totally made the wedding, she sang all of our favourite songs and was an absolute hit with our guests. Post-wedding I asked Emily if she would record the songs she had sung during our wedding to give to my husband as a gift so we can continue listening to all of our favourite songs and so we could remember the great day we had and the fab performance by Emily. I would recommend Emily to anyone and really hope for another excuse to invite Emily back to perform again.


Emily’s voice is stunning and she is a natural and beautiful performer. She created a warm, classy and laid back environment during our wedding reception entrance drinks. Her performance helped to create an intimate reception and every guest commented in her exquisite voice. She was very professional and lovely to deal with. We are so glad we chose her!
