We couldn't recommend her enough
Carrie played at our wedding during our outdoor drinks reception at Oxnead Hall and we couldn’t recommend her enough. She was great in the build up to the wedding and was easy to get in touch with and would respond quickly. The music on the day was beautiful and we had lots of guests commenting on how lovely the music was.

We highly recommend Carrie
Carrie played during our wedding ceremony and drinks reception. She provided a very personalised service, including an introductory call and learnt two new songs especially for us which she played exceptionally well. The music was beautiful, we had several guests tell us how much they enjoyed the music and we highly recommend Carrie for similar events.

You had us captivated….
You probably do not remember the moment we met you as well as we do, Carrie. We were two of many taking a look round Holkham Hall the day of its Wedding Open Day and you were playing in the Marble Hall, alone and surrounded by candles. You had us captivated and emotional from that moment with your amazing music and peaceful presence so we were absolutely delighted when you were able to play on our re-arranged date. We have had so much feedback from friends and family about how gracefully you played and how wonderfully your music shaped the day, before the ceremony, during it and afterwards, both in the Hall and throughout the wedding breakfast. We cannot thank you enough for all that you did for us and for the calm way in which you helped us ahead of the date. It is not just that we knew that we were in the hands of a true professional .. we had this exciting feeling that the day was going to be taken to a different level by you and it was! You are fabulously talented, but it is the combination of your skills and your beautiful personality which creates such an unforgettable result. All gratitude and love to you, David and Sheryl.

Would recommend her to anyone!
Carrie played at our wedding last week and was fantastic. Prior to the day we met with Carrie via Zoom and discussed our music choices. On the day Carrie had to play a little longer than originally planned due to a hold up my end ! But I am told she did so with such perfection and the music was tasteful. We are really pleased with Carrie and would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding ! Thank you !!

Carrie was the loveliest person to work with
Carrie played at our wedding on the 2nd April. We absolutely loved having the live piano music and really felt it added to the emotion of the ceremony. She used her piano shell as well which looked beautiful in the ceremony room. Not only did Carrie play beautiful music, she was the loveliest person to work with from the initial email to actually being there on the day. We had postponed a year and she was already booked for our previous date but was amazing at keeping us updated with potential availability. I would 100% recommend booking Carrie!

She was really amazing
We were so fortunate to have Carrie play at our Wedding at the Hoste. She really was amazing, and when you want someone to just come in a get on with it, she does. Having met her prior to the event, we found her a very friendly and easy to get on with person and very responsive to our queries. We can highly recommend Carrie and hopefully our paths will cross again in the future, because we would love to hear her play again.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Ethereal, Elegant, Beautiful, Luxury, Classy

What about your business are you most proud of?

My personal approach & my professionalism.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Do your research when choosing suppliers. There are so many suppliers out there, you need to be sure that the supplier you choose is reliable, friendly, professional and will suit your individual taste and style.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I love seeing the creativity from my couples I play for, so when the brides make all their own wedding favours or decorations is really lovely.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

If someone is interested in booking me for their special day, I will firstly send over a quote for their requirements. Once they confirm they want to go ahead I will then arrange a meeting to discuss their music choices in more detail & also to meet them. I keep in contact with them if they have any queries leading up to the wedding & provide a friendly and professional service.

What makes a romantic first dance?

I think it depends on the couple, but a few favourites are Thousand Years, or Perfect by Ed Sheeran.
