Amazing!!!

Esme was an absolute pleasure from the first message and I’m so happy she agreed to play at our wedding.We chose Esme from her videos but can honestly say even they don’t do justice her voice! her friendly nature just adds to the enjoyment. Esmes performance really added a magic touch to our day, every single guest commented on how much they enjoyed it and she took the time out to speak to all of them. We can’t thank Esme enough for everything she did, even the venue staff couldn’t stop raving about her.

Esme made our day perfect!

"Esme played and sang at our wedding ceremony and it was one of the moment memorable parts of our day. She played our special songs so beautifully and our guests were absolutely wowed. She was so professional and leading up to the day made sure everything was taken care of. She really is so versatile, talented and has a huge list of songs to chose from and even takes requests. We would highly recommend Esme!"

Incredible Talent

Esme sang at our wedding. It goes without saying her voice is beautiful, but her manner was also professional and didn’t ‘steal the show’ from the wedding. Not only did Esme sing wonderfully, she accompanied herself on the piano - such talent! Would highly recommend for any event that needs some entertainment. It was also an excellent ice breaker for wedding guests as they discussed and shared their wonderment of Esme’s talent.
