About Emma MacLaren

“Worcestershire’s soft, soaring, soulful soprano. A singer with an exceptional musical talent to enthral and entertain any audience”.
Singer (soprano)

Hello, it’s a pleasure to meet you. I’m Emma, a professional singer who has been performing for over 15 years at private events and special occasions, including wedding ceremonies, and for my loved ones. Music is my beating heart. I love to entertain, to captivate an audience through the magic of a melody, but most importantly to bring joy and happiness to the most special and treasured times in our lives. I love to inspire others to use their voices. It is an absolute pleasure to share my passion for performing at any event, but especially at one of the most important days of someone's life, witnessing the love shared between two souls. If you are looking for a soft, soaring soprano singer with warm, soulful tones, who can carefully select songs tailored to your personal preferences, with a versatile portfolio of songs, in varying styles and genres of music, then please don't hesitate to get in contact. I would be delighted to bring your ideas to life and help make your dream event come true!

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

If timings need to change this is not a problem at all. I will always try to be flexible to ensure that your event runs as smoothly as possible.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

On request, I can of course provide an iPod service, such as a free custom playlist option to help set the ambience of the event for your guests.

How much time do you need to set up?

Depending on the package chosen, set up usually requires about 15 - 30 mins before the performance time and then a quick sound check. I can also provide a playlist before the set to add atmosphere for the guests.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

The set list is professionally prepared in advance after our first consultation to reflect your chosen theme or you can opt for a bespoke option where you choose the selection of songs you wish to be performed. I am very happy to talk through ideas to make sure we find what suits you for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Where possible, I will always bring my own PA system, but may require use of the venues sound system if applicable.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If there is a specific song (or songs) you’d like to be performed on the day, this can be seamlessly added for you. I am very happy to receive music requests and to learn new songs. There is an additional fee for this service to take into account rehearsal times.

Thank you to Emma for making our wedding ceremony so magical. From the moment we booked Emma to sing at our wedding ceremony she has been so helpful and professional. She has been involved in the preparation of the ceremony and made us feel so special with all the planning she has done before the day. She went above and beyond with FaceTime calls to discuss songs choices, to visiting the venue so she could visualise how the ceremony would be like. Her singing on the day was beautiful just like her personality. She sang songs that we personally requested and they worked so well in the ceremony. Emma very kindly sang for my guests after the ceremony at the drinks reception and they were all amazed with how brilliant she was. I’m so happy we asked Emma to sing at our wedding and would recommend anyone to book her.

We were very lucky that Emma agreed to sing in the church at our wedding during lockdown in 2020. We weren’t allowed hymns at the time, but were determined to have music of some kind and we weren’t disappointed. Emma is charming and has the most beautiful voice, the acoustics in the church were amazing and she made the whole ceremony a magically memorable experience for us. Oliver & Emily
