Laura's Reviews

Laura was fab and totally got the laid back, relaxed vibe we were going for. We had asked her to learn one of our favourite songs as the entrance music and she it played it beautifully. Thank you! x

Laura and the pianist did an incredible job. It was really special that she was able to learn some songs for the ceremony at our request. Our guests were gushing! Her voice was so beautiful. Even our photographer was highly impressed - and as he is at weddings every weekend that's an even bigger compliment. Her set list was perfect and her voice was stunning. We were so lucky.""
