Love and music go hand in hand
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, filled with joy, beauty, and immense love. Your church ceremony should be a reflection of your personal tastes and lifestyle. With the exception of your vows, music is the best way to say what is in your heart, and finding the right performer to convey this message is equally important.

I will deliver with grace and elegance a captivating performance that not only you, but your family and friends will remember for years to come. The memories of your special day will be ones you will cherish all your life.

Your church bespoke musical programme
♪ SOLO SINGING & HYMNS
Planning a wedding takes a lot of time and energy. Often, the choice of music for the wedding mass is discussed at the last minute. As I have a complete understanding of the liturgy and the required music for the parts of the nuptial ceremony, I am able to offer you a complete service of hymns and solo singing.
As a classical crossover singer, I offer a wide repertoire from baroque, classical & romantic arias , sacred music (ave maria), opera masterpieces to classical crossover, musical Theatre, jazz, movie songs, Love themes & modern popular favorites. Although classically trained, I can ‘colour’ my voice to suit the mood and style of the song being sung.
