Fiona sang for our ceremony and drinks reception on May 23rd . On first meeting Fiona I felt there was something that set her apart from others that we had spoken with about our ceremony, a personal touch combined with a unique talent. This proved to be true- Fiona went the extra mile to meet with us to discuss song choices, offering to learn anything she didn't know. On the day her performance was flawless and so memorable, so many guests commented on the uniqueness and soulfullness of her voice and she brought out the emotion of each song. Again in the drinks reception she came into her own singing a great variety of songs and keeping a party atmosphere going. Book her!

We had Fiona Kennedy singing for our Civil Ceremony recently and all i can say is that she is amazing! Her voice captivated our guests and the amount of people who asked who she was and commented on how good she is was incredible! From helping us to choose our songs and responding so fast to any queries we had was so appreciated by both of us, i would have no hesitation at all recommending Fiona to any future brides out there looking for an amazing and professional musician for their wedding! Not only is she very talented but a lovely lady and a true professional! Wedding: 19th Dec
Fiona played at my wedding in March and she played in both the church and the drinks reception. From the second we met Fiona she was very professional but yet we felt like we had been friends with her for years. She gave great ideas for songs but listened to what we wanted also and she even learnt a few songs that we requested. I would highly recommend her as she makes everything perfect for a bride on the day and even beforehand. Each song is sung with meaning and magic is created when she sings as she sings with pure love and passion.Submitted by Ann Marie on 6th April 2016
