Newlywed Testimonials

Wedding Proposal Performance 

I've had the pleasure of being the private performer at the very moment a proposal happens, and the person gets down on one knee. We set up a secret location, I either show up unexpected with the song of choice (usually the couples favourite song) and start serenading. I've even put the names of the person being surprised into songs to add an extra bit of special! These are always really wonderful moment. Book me for your lovely surprise, we'll have it filmed and you can keep it forever. 

"I hired Vanessa to sing songs to me and my partner before I proposed. She did a wonderful job. She has a beautiful voice. Also, her communication leading up to the day was excellent. My fiance loved the surprise. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again. Highly recommend".-Sandeep
