Kate was a true professional. She played beautifully and made our day unforgettable. I cannot thank her enough - truly magical.

5/5

Kate sounded absolutely amazing and everyone commented on how great she was and what a great addition it was to the day! Kate was very helpful leading up to the day to ensure everything was just right. On the day Kate had to reposition in the evening due to guests leaving the stage area but Kate was very accommodating with this! We would definitely recommend her

5/5

We decided to book Kate to play at our beach-style wedding in Devon after reading the great reviews and hearing her stunning tracks.... Let me tell you she did not disappoint. She played to perfection during our ceremony and really captured the vibe we wanted for the day! Our guests were singing along and asked where we had found such a rare talent. Kate is a delight, she is professional and really took our ideas into consideration to make the performance so personal, made just for us. I really encourage anyone to add the wow factor to their event by booking Kate and hearing how talented she is in person.
