Recent Praise

Our amazing wedding song From the moment we heard about Emily from our wedding planner Sharon McMeel we were excited about having a personalized song created for us. We had never heard of anything like it before, very original and we knew straight away it was something we wanted to do. We knew it would be very special and somethings we would have forever. From our first chat with Emily we found her to be such a lovely person, very warm and bubbly personality, an absolute pleasure to talk to and you can see how much she loves doing what she does. She showed so much enthusiasm. We gave her our story and a few weeks later we received the first draft from her. We were absolutely blown away by what she had created for us. She really got us as a couple and this really came through in the song. We wanted a fun upbeat romantic song and she delivered on that beyond our expectations. She is incredibly talented and has the most amazing unique voice that you just want to listen to over and over again. It was so brilliant that we didn't want any changes made to it, it was perfect. After listening to it the first few times we found ourselves humming along to it all the time. The song went down a hit with all our family and friends, they thought it was a real "us song" some even said it sounded like it could be a No. 1 hit on the radio. We would highly recommend for any couples getting married to contact Emily. It would make such a special and personal surprise gift from a bride to groom or vice versa. I know we will always listen to our song with the fondest of memories of our wedding. Thank you so much Emily, we will treasure it forever.
