"Emma played for our wedding ceremony and afterwards as we were having celebratory drinks. Leading up to the event Emma was a pleasure to deal with, we requested mainly pop songs but also some songs that were unknown to her, however she was extremely positive and happily learnt them for the wedding. Our wedding venue was Two Woods Estate, Pulborough, West Sussex. We got married in their red woods and Emma's performance there just made the experience incredible. All of the guests commented on how amazing she was and I would recommend her to anybody. We wanted to use suppliers and performers at our wedding that were great people who we enjoyed the company of, and Emma was the only person we didn't get to meet personally beforehand however I needn't have ever worried."

We just wanted to say how pleased and impressed we were with Emma who performed at our daughter's wedding. She arrived on time and ready to go. She happily did a late change of her playlist to start with a song that means a lot to Ellie and Kyle. Emma looked fabulous, was very friendly, always a lovely smile, and her playing was perfect for our event. We just wanted to say how impressed and grateful we were. Thanks so much Emma.
