“I first heard Katie singing in Fareham and invited her to come and sing at our local Women’s Institute group when we celebrated our 4th birthday; our members loved her.
I was so impressed I have asked her to come and sing at my
daughter’s wedding ceremony next year. I know she will really add a new dimension to my daughter’s special day.”

“We had Katie sing at our wedding reception in June 2013. Best decision we ever made. Her singing brought a touch of class to the event and everyone commented on what a beautiful voice she had.
To any one thinking of hiring Katie for your event or party I would definitely recommend her.
You won’t regret it.”

“Just to say a big THANK YOU for singing at our 40th Wedding
We had a wonderful evening but you helped to make it even more special – we did wonder if it would work okay in our home but it was brilliant!
All our guests loved it and we would not hesitate to highly recommend you to others.”
