Such a beautiful voice.
We had the pleasure of Sam playing at our wedding, she was fantastic! She learnt our aisle music and sang us down the aisle beautifully. Many of our guest commented on separate occasions about how great she was! Such a beautiful voice. She made the music planning process leading up to the wedding so easy and relaxed. We can’t rate her highly enough!

Easy to work with, and amazing voice!
Sam was absolutely brilliant! She was extremely easy to work with in the run up to our big day and provided us with an extensive repertoire of songs to choose from as well as the option to add others. Sam really did set the tone from the off playing during guest arrival, she made our ceremony extra special with some beautiful songs and kept our guests entertained with an early evening set. She has an amazing voice and many of our guests were very complimentary and asked us where we'd found her! I would recommend Sam to anyone who is looking for a highly talented artist to play at their wedding or any other special occasion. Thank you Sam!

Professional from day one, and just incredible!
Myself and my wife chose to have Sam to sing at our wedding ceremony and nothing was too much for her. Some of our songs were not on the portfolio but Sam went away and learnt them so our day could be as perfect as possible. She was just incredible and words can’t describe how amazing it was to have her there. From the moment we saw her and booked to the day itself she was just so professional and lovely. Even after the wedding, popping us an email to wish us luck as a new couple. We would recommend her to anyone and everyone and wish we could do it all again! (Can’t wait for the videos!) We are so grateful for you for making our day so so special, thank you so much Sam ❤️ Love from the Parry’s

A nice surprise for the bride!
Sam was such a special addition to our big day and was a nice surprise for the bride. Every single guest told us how excellent the performance was. Our photographer and wedding venue commented “probably the best and most professional wedding singer they have worked with”. A really emotional performance which I feel can only be achieved by an acoustic guitarist. I would 100% recommend!

You made our day even more perfect
Sam, you were the perfect addition to our most special day. She nailed our first dance request and we could not have been any happier. All of our guests commented on how amazing she sounded and the contrast of have Sam's stunning voice to welcome our guests against the full live band we had later worked perfectly. We can not recommend Sam enough. Thank you for everything Sam, you made our day even more perfect.

Fantastic!
I hired Sam for my wedding at Northcote Manor. I haven't got enough words to describe how fantastic she was. Everyone was so impressed they wanted her details, including the hotel! From the beginning she was professional, friendly and so accommodating - even learning songs for us that weren't on her playlist. If you hire Sam you will not be disappointed. I listened to one song and knew I had to have her. Thank you Sam for being part of the team that made our day so perfect!

What is your most memorable wedding?

I once played during the drinks reception of a wedding in a beautiful manor with large gardens. Halfway through the reception, the bride and groom brought out a cricket set and invited the entire wedding party (grandparents and all!) to play a game of rounders. I'll never forget the laughter from the guests as they watched the bride lift her wedding dress in order to sprint from base to base!

What about your business are you most proud of?

I've built this business entirely independently. I am a one woman show, both on stage and behind the scenes.

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

With regards to choosing the music for your big day, don't forget about your guests. It's great if you choose 30 of your favourite songs, but if your guests aren't going to be familiar with any of them, it may have an impact on the vibe you're trying to achieve. People love to sing and dance along with songs that they know!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Following your initial enquiry, I will send you through my list of packages and performance options to have a look through. Whilst you don't necessarily need to choose which package to go for immediately (sometimes it's better to organise the rest of the day first and then see where the music can slot in), I will provide you with some different options that I think would suit your day based on your requirements or what you've told me that you're looking to achieve. We can discuss this either by email, by phone/video call, or even via an in-person meeting if you'd prefer to meet me before the big day. I will also send you through my repertoire list and encourage you to highlight your favourite songs in advance of the event so that I can work on a bespoke setlist for you. A couple of weeks before the big day, I will reach out to you a final time just to clarify all of the final details and timings.
