Hi Gemma,
I am just back from honeymoon but i just wanted to email you to thank you for such a wonderful job on the day of our wedding. I was asked about two things in particular that day, one was about my wedding dress and the other was the music in the church. I was asked numerous times about the music as people thought it was amazing. The music for the church was the main thing that i wanted people to talk about and that was definitely achieved, it was so haunting in the big church and a lot of my friends said that they never cried so much (in a good way!) at a wedding.

I will have no hesitation to mention you to any of my friends getting married in the future.

Thanks again, take care.

Hi Gemma,

I just wanted to send you this mail to say, thank you so much for making our Wedding Day so magical. You blew us away from start to finish.

To be honest, I do not remember much about the church, as I was in my own little nervous world, but I can clearly remember your amazing voice and the shivers you sent down my spine with your amazing singing, especially when you sang Oh Holy Night. You blew everyone in that cold church on a freezing December morning away, and put a smile on all their faces. One of my friends actually thought it was a cd playing until his girlfriend pointed you out he couldn?t believe how fantastic and clear you sounded.

At the reception so many people commented on your amazing voice but also said how great you looked! You were the true professional from the minute I booked you, and with the pressure of being a bride to be, you put me at such ease throughout and it was one less thing to worry about.

You then sang our first dance song which was Leona Lewis ?Footprints in the Sand?, you really gave her a run for her money. It was breathtaking, as the band said ?how in the name of god can we play after that!?. We had so many people ask about you after our big day, and I'm honoured that you played for us on the most special day of our lives. I would recommend you in a heartbeat to anybody that is looking for a singer for their wedding or any other special occasion.

Thanks again Gemma you made our day,

Thank you so much for the music at our ceremony in the Killarney Cathedral at Christmas. You sang everything we requested beautifully and you were so helpful with the preparation.

I'm delighted to recommend you.

Best wishes,

We were recommended Gemma for our wedding after a relation saw her singing "Oh Holy Night" at Christmas mass in the New Church, Killarney. We hadn't heard her ourselves until the day and we were really blown away. She has such a powerful voice, she sang an Eva Cassidy song as well as the classical stuff. The organist who accompanied her was excellent as well.
