I have just been having a clear out of my email account and going through some old emails. I found this email from a client in 2017 and wanted to share it with you. I remember singing at this wedding well. It was at the very pretty and intimate Burgh House Museum in Hampstead Heath, London. The client booked myself as a soprano wedding singer to sing with a string quartet and a pianist to play for their wedding ceremony and drinks reception.
I wanted to write to say a HUGE thank you for your beautiful performances at our wedding at Burgh House. For me it was the highlight of the day and was such a worthy investment. So many of our guests commented how overwhelmed they were when you started to sing Canteloube's Bailero. For me waiting to go in to the room, I could describe it as nothing short of a transcendental moment! It was particularly special as my grandmother who is sadly no longer with us loved that piece of music. Both Michael and I were also so touched by your version of The Book of Love, which created a lovely poignant moment in our ceremony. Please pass on our thanks to the fantastic pianist who accompanied you. We greatly enjoyed his playing during our wedding breakfast. The string quartet were also flawless.
I have attached a few photographs of the day (including one of us listening to The Book of Love!). If you use them for any promotional materials, please credit Kirsten Mavric of Mavric Photography.
With many thanks and best wishes,
It really was a very special and beautiful wedding ceremony, and like always, I went out of my way to learn their special musical requests. If you are interested in booking me for your wedding or any other special event, then please do not hesitate to get in touch via my contact page.
