I could have listened all day & evening to Mehreen, I cannot recommend her beautiful talents enough. Professional, friendly & a joy to organise our wedding blessing with, my only regret was our blessing wasn’t longer so we could have heard more. Our guests loved hearing her sing in the church, it made a beautiful day so much more memorable .

Mehreen was amazing. Her singing was beautiful during the service. She was so easy to work with and very professional in her preparations. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mehreen. Our guests commented on her beautiful voice.

We hired Mehreen to sing at our Christmas Ball. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a classical singer. What a voice! She sang classical and modern opera to suit our theme. She was professional at all times. Communication with Mehreen was excellent, answering my questions no matter how small. I will be keeping Mehreen's details on file for future events and I will certainly be recommending her to others.

Mehreen sang at our wedding at very short notice and it was simply stunning. She has the most amazing voice it brought me to tears. Thank you so much Mehreen.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My performances have been described as professional, and clients have mentioned how my contribution has enhanced their event, whether it be a wedding, funeral/memorial service or corporate event (and much more!)

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle HMS Excellent The Royal Hall, Harrogate Mayflower Theatre, Southampton Lighthouse Theatre, Poole Wells Cathedral Harbour Hotel, Ocean Village Southampton

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

I will always do my best to work around your event, and if anything changes, i.e. date, time, location, music requests etc., please let me know as soon as you can and I'll do what I can to accommodate.

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

I can provide background/ambient instrumental music before and/or after the event if required, depending on the nature of the event (extra charge applies).

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually require about an hour to set up and prepare, which includes changing into appropriate concert dress, warming up, and setting up my PA system for backing tracks (if applicable).

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

I'm happy to create a suitable setlist/programme of songs/arias depending on the type of event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes - depending on the event, I can provide my own PAT tested PA system, microphone and music stand if required. I am also happy to work with an accompanist ( e.g. pianist, organist, guitarist) if provided.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If you have a particular song or two in mind for your event, I would be happy to perform them! If it is a song I am not familiar with however, I would kindly request a fee of £50 per song to cover rehearsal time, sourcing and purchasing of sheet music/backing tracks, etc.
