Francesca was amazing at our wedding! She learned several new songs just for us, and her repertoire was really lovely. She played our ceremony, drinks reception and our first dance and it really made the day for us. Her voice is absolutely beautiful and so many of our guests commented on how perfect the music was. I'd definitely recommend her!
