"We wanted to make our wedding as personal as possible - with each aspect meaningful rather than just spending thousands of pounds on one day because that's what people do. Having heard Kirsty sing at a recital I was keen to have her sing at our wedding ceremony. You can tell she just loves to translate what the song means for her. She travelled up to my house during our wedding planning to go over song options and gave us lots of great suggestions.

She even made us a CD of her singing so we could choose our favourites. She sang while we signed the register and I felt quite distracted because it was so beautiful! A lot of our guests have said to us how lovely the singing was. I would recommend Kirsty as a singer for weddings or any other event to anyone!!"

"My Mum passed away on the 19th of October. So in these times of the pandemic. Learning no hymns could be sung by a small congregation was perhaps a God send for ears. However, being told you could have a solo singer and a human being after months of Zoom, Teams, Skype was a blessing. The question was who? By chance a friend came across Kirsty and what to say we were privileged to have her voice to sing the hymns, 2 of Mum’s favourites and one of my own. As an only child and with my Mum as a solo parent for a long time I had a song in mind too a song called ‘Look Mummy no Hands’ which summed up the rebellious teenage daughter to the 50+ year old I am now who will simply miss her. I had heard a version by Amanda Palmiera. I told Kirsty to listen and make it her own and described our relationship and unique bond through the years. What to say but her voice accompanied by the perfect pianist, Ruth and Kirsty simply wowed. Her voice was perfect, she set the tone and beautifully summed up our unique bond and history together with a beautiful presence and human touch. At a time of sadness and grief she brought comfort and joy and I am eternally grateful for the celebration of Mum’s life that eases the pain when remembered. Today a friend sent a little keepsake on the day that my Mum and Dad married in the same church where I said my goodbyes. A story on sunflowers 🌻 featured in the Eulogy but then the song, spine chillingly sung with heartfelt beauty touched not only my heart but hers and everyone present that day. Thank you Kirsty 🙏🏻 I know in these dark time for many saying goodbye to a loved one is hard but your light shone and soothed us even now X"
"The perfect lockdown Father's Day gift! Kirsty did a private online concert for my dad & family for Father's Day. She sang his favourite songs, and the whole event was just super: we had laughter, tears and such fun watching together.
Kirsty is flexible in length of event, songs, timing - it all worked out so well. Thank you Kirsty!" - Deborah Chestnutt - June 2020
"We asked Kirsty to perform Ae Fond Kiss at my dad’s funeral. It was just perfect. Thank you." Gillian Ferguson - January 2019
"Kirsty sang for a 60th Birthday celebration in a beautiful Croft we stayed in for the occasion. We enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea with delightful background music. Kirsty was accompanied by her Dad who also played some amazing piano pieces as well as playing the low pipe for us. Kirsty tailored the set to the favourites of the Birthday Girl so the whole performance was very personal. Kirsty has a very warm personality which was reflected in her singing and the combination of Dad & Daughter was very special indeed. Kirsty’s voice is like velvet and the performance was very emotional. I would certainly recommend Kirsty if you are looking for a first class singer. Thanks yet again Kirsty and John. We hope to meet again!" Keith Morrice, November 2018

"The first thing my father said to me after my wedding ceremony was not words of congratulations but to say that the singer we had was amazing!!
Thanks Kirsty for an amazing time. Your voice filled the church with melody and warmth. We have had nothing but great feedback from our guests and family about you.
Also thanks for all the preparation and communications before the ceremony. You made everything seem easier and it gave us peace of mind that everything would be wonderful on the day." John Rose - 2016
"Kirsty sang at our wedding and was amazing. All our guests commented on how beautiful her signing was and it really added that special touch to our ceremony. Kirsty was so professional from the first email, replying quickly and made me feel really confident and relaxed as I knew she would do a great job. On the day she went above and beyond, even helping with my dress and veil. She is truly amazing at what she does. Absolutely stunning voice!! I can't thank Kirsty enough x" - Rachel Davryan 2016

Now that we have returned from our honeymoon we would like to thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for all your help in making our wedding day so special. We had the most magical day and it was everything we have ever dreamed of and more.
You have such a beautiful voice and all our guests are still commenting on how outstanding you were. Many had tears in their eyes when you sang "Can't Help Falling In Love" and "Feels Like Home". You are so professional and attentive with excellent customer service skills. You paid so much attention to every tiny detail and nothing was ever too much.
We honestly can't thank you enough, and most importantly for making us feel so special from the minute we reserved our date, on the run up to our big day, and on the day itself. We will be highly recommending you to all our friends and family.
Mr and Mrs Carroll
Kirsty has a beautiful voice, is professional and charming - we were grateful to her for leading the singing at my mother-in-laws funeral in January in Ayr. At the end of the service she sang my mother-in-laws favourite Ave Maria and it was stunning and we will never forget it.
