About

Hi lovely

Thank you so much for your dropping in on my profile! I would love to chat with you about your big day, and I'm excited to hear about which venue you have chosen

I’d love to set up a time for a phone date so we can go over which package might work best for you, and being a qualified wedding planner, I also have lots of great resources I can share with you.

How will your day look when you invite me to perform?

I will add sophistication, romance, sparkle and a dab of emotion to any part of your Wedding day, whether it be for the:​

  • Wedding Ceremony

  • Drinks Reception

  • Wedding Breakfast

  • Evening Impact Showspot with First Dance by Alexandra

  • Evening Impact Showspot by Opulence Duo

All of the music is chosen by you, which can feel a little overwhelming but don't worry, that's exactly what I am here for. There's a massive list of songs for you to choose from, and the opportunity to request that special song that is not in the repertoire. I'd love to invite you into the warmth of my home studio for a cuppa where I'll set up my violin so we can play through any songs you'd like to hear and explore alternatives. If you're feeling completely lost, I'll ask you a series of questions and make suggestions to make your choices personal and meaningful.

During the Drinks Reception, your guests can also request musical styles or particular songs from a range of genres, such as contemporary, popular, classical, rock, Latin or jazz.

With over 20 years of experience in the wedding industry, and as a qualified wedding planner, the consultation also offers you an opportunity to discuss any helpful tips for the big day e.g; supplier recommendations; ideas and inspiration and, I'm even on-hand to advise on any wedding emergencies that arise on the run-up to the big day

Colour-matching my outfit to coordinate with your colour scheme adds a surprisingly big difference to the impression made on the day. In addition to colour-matching clothing, if there's a particular outfit you've seen me wear, you can request that outfit to be worn for your big day.

Join my community of Couples by asking to be added to the couples' Whatsapp group (optional) where you can ask each other for advice, share ideas and more. I'll also post exclusive updates here.

19th November 2022

I cannot recommend Alexandra enough, we came across her at the "I do" wedding fayre in Sheffield and she completely blew us away. We knew from that moment that we wanted her to perform at our wedding. We booked the ceremony package and it really was amazing. It added that touch that the ceremony needed rather than having a CD playing in the background. We met twice prior to our wedding where Alexandra played us songs, gave us wedding tips and had a cuppa with us. It was so informal but so lovely and just what we wanted.
Our wedding day was amazing and all of our guests commented on the ceremony music she provided. Alexandra is one talented lady and I really would recommend her to anyone!!

Amazing :) xx

Perfect perfect perfect!

Alexandra kindly provided the music for our reception drinks for our wedding and she was nothing short of incredible.
Leading up to the wedding, she took the time to see us more than once to speak about what music we wanted and played numerous songs for us. The spectrum of songs Alexandra can play is nothing short of incredible and she perfectly played a whole host of different music at our reception.
There are suppliers who really go the extra mile for you and she is one of them - even asking what to wear to fit in with our wedding colours! We still have people commenting on who amazing she was over a year later!

Wow!!! ..,, What an amazing lady and just so talented..

I first heard Alexandra, whilst i was waiting in a queue to go in to a wedding supplier event.

The music that was being played was just so beautiful . I wanted whoever it was who was playing tge violin to play at our wedding.

I had not even got into the event but had already decided on this person to share our day with us.

The way Alexandra engages with your guests with her music is so amazing and beautiful. My guests were so complementary of her and her music.

We would definitely recommend her for your wedding venue .

Alexandra played “A Thousand Years “ by Christina Perry for us walking down the aisle She also played a chosen playlist to our guests at the drinks reception.

It made the hairs on your arms stand up when she played it.

Alexandra is a very talented and fantastic lady!.

We would definitely recommend her for any wedding event.

Highly recommend Alexandra

Best decision we made was booking Alexandra to play during our wedding breakfast.
We saw her at my brother’s wedding and fell in love and knew we had to have her at our wedding. She is amazing and I wouldn’t think twice about booking.
All of our guests loved her; when everyone was starting to get full and tired having desserts, she brought the party; everyone said she was just what they needed to liven back up!
The venue loved her as well and asked her to play at their open evenings as she’s one of a kind!

Fantastic addition to our wedding ceremony

Alexandra is an incredibly talented violinist and a genuinely lovely person. We booked her for our recent wedding where she absolutely wowed our guests. Unfortunately, our wedding was cancelled twice due to Covid, but throughout Alexandra was helpful and her bubbly personality helped us to remain optimistic! I'd definitely recommend booking Alexandra for your wedding or event!

Heartwarming, emotional, perfect.

Alexandra was just all-round lovely, from having a consultation to her performing on the day everything was just 100%
When I first met Alexandra and we spoke for ages it felt like I knew her already and felt so comfortable and confident in her.
She was always helping with my enquiries as soon as she could. One thing I absolutely loved and appreciated was when she voice noted me on the morning of my wedding with her excitement for the day ahead. Definitely made me feel she truly cares for her brides and genuinely loves what she does.
Everyone absolutely loved the music being played and it was such a special touch to walking down the isle and the welcome drinks reception. Thank you a million times over xxx

Incredible performer perfect for a wedding

Alexandra was incredible from when we first contacted her right through to the wedding day.
She listened to everything we wanted and worked with us when choosing our songs.
Not only is she a fantastic violinist, she’s a lovely person and it was so easy planning the music for the ceremony and reception.

Brilliant - incredible talent.

Alexandra is the most amazing violinist. We booked her for the full day, she played all of the music that we requested and more. Her show in the evening was a show stopper - all our guests were blown away.
We even pulled off a duet for the last song, she really made our wedding day extra special.
