Laura was fantastic. She looked stunning in a 1920’s outfit which fitted the party theme and her singing created the perfect background ambiance for my 50th Birthday party. So many people commented on how good she was and asked me how I’d found her. Plus she was had a lovely warm personality. Couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you Laura!

Myself and Patrick just wanted to say a huge thank you to you guys for your amazing contribution to our wedding this weekend. Our guests have not stopped talking about you both and how brilliant you were. It definitely made our reception and I hoped you enjoyed everyone having a sing a long with you at the end! We can't give you enough praise and we will definitely be recommending you to everyone. Once again thank you and we hope to see you both performing somewhere again soon. With love and thanks Rachel and Patrick. (Mr and Mrs Dillon)
