Amazing wedding singer, Dionne made our special day perfect! All our guests were so impressed by her performance and she exceeded our expectations!

Dionne is truly an amazing professional with a beautiful voice. We were so lucky to have found her and she made our wedding day complete. Nothing was too much trouble for her to perform all our special ceremony songs and our wedding breakfast entrance and throughout our meal she sang wonderful songs along with our special romantic requests of our favourites. Dionne even made our first dance feel more romantic and all of her performance exceeded our expectations as it was the most memorable part of our day from start to finish. We can’t stop talking about the big part she played in bringing everything together on the day. Our guests raved about her. We kept the live singing as a surprise and all our guests loved her. She had a lovely way with our flowers girls too. Do not hesitate to book Dionne she truly is such a talented professional . She goes above and beyond and we feel blessed to have found her. Thank for from the bottom of our hearts for all you did for us on our special day, we have amazing memories to last our lifetime. J & J❤️x

Dionne is wonderful, highly recommended

Dionne was the perfect choice for our ceremony and drinks reception. We had a phone call before confirming our booking to discuss the venue and what our plans were. On the day Dionne was very professional, singing both during our ceremony and drinks reception, and including a sprinkling of festive tunes for our December wedding. Many of our guests came over to say how brilliant she was - thanks again Dionne!

Summer wedding, amazing performers

Dionne & Adam were amazing, I am so glad we had them to perform (sing & piano) throughout our ceremony, drinks reception and wedding Breakfast. Everyone was delighted and amazed at their performances and I was so happy to walk down the aisle to the most amazing song sang and performed with the piano, simply stunning!
Very well priced for the quality you get and Dionne was so easy to contact before the date that I had 0 stress and worry and everything apart from the song choices for the ceremony were all taken care of which was so nice : )

You will not regret booking them and I do recommend you have the duo package!

Thanks again to you both for making our day so special and one to remember!

Most amazing addition to our day!

Dionne was so fantastic. Her voice is beautiful and added such a personal and emotional element to the day.

Dionne sang for our ceremony and drinks reception and I wish she could've stayed all day!

We had so many compliments how amazing both Dionne and Matt (we booked the duo package) were and their professionalism but also friendliness stood out to us and our guests.

Dionne made sure the aisle song was perfectly timed to my song request so that I could practise my aisle walk in time.
We were so so happy with Dionne and would definitely recommend to anyone!

Dionne performed at our wedding throughout the day and also performed our first dance song, we could not recommend her enough.

Her voice is incredible, and her professionalism and personality also matches.

Thank you once again, you helped make our dream day happen.

Best decision we made!

Having found Dionne on Instagram, we felt like we’d struck gold! Dionne was absolutely fantastic. Her voice was smooth and angelic yet was also able to hit all the big notes. When Dionne sang a solo during our signing of the registers, her voice carried beautifully in the chapel and set me off crying all over again. From the very start, Dionne was a pleasure to work with. She arranged a phone call with us to discuss our vision. She went absolutely above and beyond and went to the lengths of learning our hymns and arranged a rehearsal with the organist. Dionne then performed at our drinks reception following the ceremony which was again absolutely perfect and so many guests commented on her! Our only regret is that we didn’t book her for our evening reception too…had we found her sooner we definitely would’ve had her for the whole day. She covers all genres: classic RnB, soul, chart hits and so much more! Xxx

Dionne was amazing!

Dionne was so amazing, she made our evening extra special and everyone commented on how excellent she was! She understood the vibe of the wedding and went with the flow. We also had to change venues last minute and this communication was made super easy and efficient.
Thank you so much for making our day.

Dionne and Adam were breathtaking...

I discovered Dionne through instagram and realised that both her and Adam could be booked together and was so excited to have them perform at my wedding in Surrey in September 2023. They were mind blowing in person. Dionne has the voice of an angel and Adam compliments her so well. I also loved the fact that Adam's piano was like a grand piano which looked beautiful in our photos. Guests continuously sang their praise, I just knew I had made the right choice for such a special day. Dionne's professionalism in the lead up to my day was flawless. She totally understood my vision and song choice and executed my welcome drinks segment and cocktail hour. Booking Dionne and Adam was one of the highlights for my wedding, they really set the tone for all the great moments to come on my day, they won't disappoint! xxx

Huge Thank You To Dionne!

Dionne has an absolutely exceptional voice and we were so glad to have found her to sing at our wedding reception.
She is nothing but a professional - very prompt to respond, kindly took song requests and performed at both our drinks and during our dinner. All our guests were in awe of her voice. We can’t thank Dionne enough!!

I n c r e d i b l e!!

Wow, wow, wow! Before the wedding I'm pretty sure I watched all of Dionne's videos to make sure we had made the right choice and although her voice sounds beautiful online, it is even more amazing in person which I didn't think was possible! Dionne is such a lovely person to work with, with an incredibly beautiful voice! We booked her for our drinks reception and the only regret we have is not booking her for the whole day.

Dionne is very professional and responsive. In the run up to the wedding she answered any and every question we had and on the day she arrived early and did not leave until all of our guests had gone in and sat down for dinner.

All of our guests commented on how amazing she was and I would recommend her to everyone! Don't waste your time looking elsewhere - GET HER BOOKED!!

An amazing experience!!

Dionne was everything we wanted and more, I knew Dionne had a beautiful voice when we booked her, but I can honestly say it was even better in person! Our first dance was a magical moment that we'll both remember forever, I really wasn't expecting to cry but I was overwhelmed in the moment as it felt so so special!
Thank you so so much Dionne x

World class vocalist

We booked Dionne during Ceremony & Drinks Reception. Her voice is just stunning and I can't stress how glad I am that we booked her. It made our day extra special. I had so many guests comment throughout the day on Dionne's voice and asking where we found her. If you're thinking of booking, DO!
