Full Description
I sing as a soloist during wedding ceremonies, drinks receptions and / or wedding breakfasts. During ceremonies, you can choose your own special songs (with assistance from me, if needed) and I will learn them for you. With over 18 years performance experience, from singing with choirs (such as the Gloucester Cathedral Choir) and singing with function bands and duos, I am adept at singing a variety of different genres, from classical to pop. Generally, during ceremonies, couples ask me to sing as guests arrive; during the big entrance; during the signing of the register and as the newlyweds leave. But you can have any combination of this that you want! During a drinks reception and/or wedding breakfast, you will use your own private page on my website to provide me with details about your music preferences; your 'couple' personality; the details of the wedding and the mood you want to create. I then come up with the perfect set list, including your favourite bands/artists. If there are songs for either ceremonies or receptions that are not on my extensive set list, I will always try my best to learn them (providing I can find a professional backing track). For evening entertainment, I perform as part of a vocal duo 'Mu2icality'. Myself and my singing partner, Tim, perform everything from Swing classics up to modern pop and Rock. We provide an excellent sound system and lights and can be booked in conjunction with an award winning DJ.

Highly recommended.
Andrea & I married recently. The Welsh Songbird (Claire) sang for us throughout the day. Claire's range & pitch was excellent, successfully tackling myriad styles. She went down extremely well. Claire worked very hard but like the proverbial swan it all seemed so smooth & easy! Highly recommended.

Amazing Wedding Singer!!
Claire was singing at a wedding I was lucky to be a guest at. She was amazing! Her voice is incredible and she was very professional too. She sang a number of different songs and put so much energy into all of them.

What is your most memorable wedding?

Every wedding is memorable for different reasons. I make a point of getting to know my couples over a coffee and some cake (ideally!🍰) so I really get emotionally involved with them. One particular wedding that was seriously fun was the fantastic Conrad and Raymundo. These boys are an exuberant pair and we had lots of fun choosing music to suit their 'couple' personaility! I won't forget it when their lovely friends and family started clapping along as the boys made their big entrance!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

My number one planning tip..... mmmmm 🤔 to make sure that you are both in it together: that you are both happy and excited about the decisions you make as a couple. Remembering that at the end of the day, this is about the start of your marriage, so make sure you keep talking, sharing and make decisions that make you both happy.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

So once couples have paid a £50 deposit and sent in a basic booking form, I then send out each couple a password to their own private page on my website. On this private page, couples fill in some questions about themselves as a couple; details concerning timings etc of their day; their dreams for their wedding and their music preferences. I think it's REALLY important that I understand the mood that couples want to create and understand a bit about their personality, so there are some fun questions for them to answer for me to find out 'who' they are. I then come up with a basic set list, including any of their favourite songs/bands that they have specified on their private page. During the lead up to their big day, I like to leave links to things / suppliers that I think might suit their wedding style (perhaps links to my Pinterest page). I also try to visit venues (where I can) and leave them go-pro videos of me rehearsing in their ceremony/rehearsal space, so they can get an idea of how it might feel on the day. The purpose of the private page is for couples to feel confident that I understand what their needs are for their big day.

What makes a romantic first dance?

Anything at all that you find romantic..... there are no rules! Whatever floats your boat and makes you all warm and fuzzy inside!
