The best day ever

James, what can I say, you were amazing & truly made our day spectacular. Memories that will last a life time. Our guests absolutely loved you entertaining them. My most favourite part was sitting back during the wedding breakfast and simply watching everyone enjoying themselves. You had them up on their feet singing and dancing. Thank you so much for being brilliant. We had the best day ever 鉂わ笍

The perfect day with the perfect wedding singer

We had the most amazing day and it was made all the more special because of James. He was absolutely fantastic and provided everything we asked for! We had James in the day and the evening. He even sang outside while our guests were having drinks in the sunshine. Everyone commented on how excellent he was and it definitely made the day and evening more entertaining and enjoyable. He even offers special lighting to make your room look magical, we had a purple pink glow which was perfect for our theme of blossom trees and flowers. We cannot recommend James enough he was simply fantastic.

Amazing performer, with fantastic personality and services for big occasions

James was an integral part of our wedding day. His magnificent singing performances of all kinds of music, from all era's wowed the audience whom equally gave him great praise.
James even took the time to learn the wedding song we wanted, despite this song not being in his repertoire. He absolutely nailed the song and improved the original version.
James was able to create the ideal atmosphere with his choices of sings by being able to read the room and guests appropriately to match the music.
James comes higher recommended by us and we hope to work with him again at some point.

Wedding singer

We booked James to sing at our wedding. Best decision we ever made.

James sang the bride down the aisle and it was the most magical moment in the world.

Genuinely cannot tell you just how good he is, our guests moved around a lot outside and James kept moving to suit the party.

Song choice was amazing, vocals amazing, the whole package, AMAZING!
If you are thinking about booking James, do it, you won't regret it.
He made our special day even more special and we will be forever grateful. Thank you, 5 stars is simply not enough!!
