I really can't put into words how magical you are and how special you made our day, we love you!!!! Andy and Laura x After hearing Cat sing at Portinax in Ibiza we knew as soon as we were engaged that we needed her to sing at our wedding, so we were overjoyed when she said yes! She was so over the moon for us, and incredibly helpful in giving us advice for what might work and even thinking through some of our location options. Cat went out of her way to learn a special song for us, indeed she sang it so beautifully that now when I hear it I can only hear her gorgeous soul-filled voice and get transported back to that wonderful day! Cat sorted all the practical details out at a beach and villa location and worked seamlessly around the rest of the team and guests. She got the vibe right at every point, whether it was making us all cry or getting us on the dance floor. She just oozes love and light. Ultimately, we can't say how magical it was to have Cat with us! Having her with us was like having a dear friend or family member come and be with us - in fact she IS now a dear friend! I would recommend Cat to anyone looking for a soul-filled singer and a packed dance floor!

Catherine. I can’t thank you enough, you were just amazing, what an atmosphere you created for us. The songs you choose & how you had us all singing along, and the requests you took from my guests, it was just perfect! All our friends were absolutely blown away with how good you were ‘The girl with the guitar!’ It was also lovely that we met you last year & it felt so personal to have you with us. Thank you. Mariana & Rob
