Reviews for Megan Collins
Recommended by 100% of couples
Beautiful voice and presence
I first heard Megan sing at an event several years ago and was captivated by her performance. Her voice is heavenly and her guitar playing top notch. She has a wonderful rapport with her audience. I have subsequently booked her for a number of events and she is always a pleasure to deal with, and the quality of her performance is consistently amazing. Just can't recommend her highly enough.Sent on 24/11/2018

All of my guests commented on how beautiful her voice was and I cannot recommend her services enough. She has gone above and beyond to make sure our special day’s music so personal. Wish I got married all over again!
