“A True Gem” (a bride’s review)
Gem adapts all her strengths to compliment any wedding request. From natural, acoustic guitar with vocals for hymns in church to Full PA, upbeat classics at the evening; Gem utilises her versatility as a musician to satisfy the bride and groom’s unique preferences. Several original songs have also been composed and performed by Gem for individual couples; adding a very personal approach to her wedding performances.
Gem, myself and Steve would like to thank you for being part of our special day on 22/3/13, I have heard you sing on several occasions and just knew you would be perfect for our big day. Your help and advice for songs for the church really helped and relieved some of that stress, The songs which where very personal to us you sang so beautiful, and nothing was a problem for you to learn. The songs which you sang at the reception you just knew what would work, which again shows your knowledge and professionalism. Our guests have made loads of comments on how amazing your voice is and it shows also on our wedding DVD. Thank you again for your help in making our day so special, you are such a lovely person, Thank you Caroline and Steve Morgan x
Gem, where do we start.. Massive, Massive THANK YOU!!!! For performing at our Wedding 6/09/14. The Church singing (two hymns, a special song tribute to my dad, and ‘The Rose’ by Bette Midler; my walk down the isle song). From Singing as we signed the register to writing us our own personalized lyrics as we walked up the Isle! Performing a wedding themed set list at the reception drinks. And of course performing Luther Van Dross’ ‘Dance With My Father’ for my special second dance; and then performing up-beat songs during the evening.
WOW!! You were spot on, out of this world, pure talent – you did us proud and made us smile and you carried it off so well.
Guests both young and more mature day and night were praising your voice and professional performance; you had the guests in tears.
We are so proud and honored that you were able to help make our day so personal and special!! You are a true ‘Gem’
We asked Gem to perform an acoustic set during our Wedding reception in December 2012 and we were so glad we did! She performed a selection of classics as well as putting her own spin on some more modern tracks, asking for our input and incorporating any songs we particularly wanted, she was happy to learn any she didn’t already know which was great. She went down an absolute storm with our guests, we still get compliments to this day about her performance.
We’d recommend Gem to anyone looking for a Singer, she’s very talented and a lovely girl too.

Hi gem, just wanted to say thank you for helping our special day go so well. We asked Gemma to sing three acoustic songs at the church for the bridal entrance and during the signing of the register it. This performance was amazing and really added to the atmosphere of the day. Numerous people have past comment on your performance in church, and how good it was. Gemma also entertained guest atime the venue for the entertainment at the venue playing and singing a wide range of songs while we had our endless photos. Gemma is an amazing professional singer who was able to meet our every request.Thank you for making our big day even more special. Sarah and Paul Crowther.
I would like to thank you Gem for being part of mine and Mick’s special day 28 March 2015, our ceremony was made so much more special and emotional with you singing for us. You were able to adapt your style throughout the day from the ceremony (Bette Midler “The Rose) to the drinks reception (Ed Sheeran “Thinking out Loud”) and by the time it came to the evening you were one of the family and gave an amazing up beat performance. Many of my guests complimented your singing and also commented on what a lovely person you are bubbly and fun but all the while staying professional throughout. I would also like to mention how good you were on the run up to the wedding you kept in regular contact, you sent us samples of songs you learnt for us, then when I asked you to learn a song for our first dance you didn’t even hesitate even though we didn’t give you much notice. Thank you Gem you gave us some unforgettable memories of our wedding day. Amy and Mick xx
Both Simon and I would love to say a great big thank you to Gem for her fabulous performance during our wedding at the Lowry theatre. She performed two sets, one during the drinks reception and a second one during the Wedding Breakfast. Throughout the rest of the evening we had guest after guest comment on how brilliant they thought her music had been. Thank you again for helping to make our day so special!

Stenson-Walsh Wedding 1/8/15 St Winifred’s RC Church, Heaton Mersey:
Gem we are extremely grateful to you for your amazing singing on our wedding day. We had a traditional church wedding and we needed someone to be appropriate for the setting and someone who could lead the service with a set of hymns. We liked the fact that Gem played the guitar as well as sang which was perfect as we didn’t really want organ music or a CD. Through meeting Gem and through regular emails/texts beforehand we knew she was thoroughly professional in every respect and was someone who cared deeply about her music. We knew our friends and family would be delighted when they heard Gem sing – and she certainly didn’t disappoint on the big day. Her singing was a real touch of class. Gem thank you so much, you made our day very special.
Very Best wishes
Damien and Emma Stenson
Anthony & I would just like to thank you for performing at our wedding on New Years Eve at Peckforton Castle. Your voice is truly that of Angel!! We loved that you learned some of our favourite songs to perform specifically for us and that you even adapted some of the lyrics so they were personal to us. The feedback we had from our guests was just phenomenal for you and I know you are destined for big things in your future!! A very beautiful and a naturally musically talented young lady. Love Lou & Ant xxx
Hi Gem, we just wanted to say thank you so much everyone has been talking about you since the wedding and how fantastic you were. We are so pleased that you agreed to sing during our wedding breakfast and evening reception and you had everyone up dancing from start to finish. The fact that you also learned our first dance song was so special. Anybody who is looking for a fantastic singer and lovely person to make there day special should with ought a doubt book you.
Thanks again Helen and Vicki x
Gem I am honestly lost for words both me and Paul Honey are absolutely chuffed to bits that we had the privilege of having you as our singer for the full day you completely blow the roof off! The entrance of me coming down the isle will stick with me for the rest of my life and I will always have your voice in my head that song was the most personal song for me and you did me proud.
I hope you have an amazing time in America really from me to you live your dreams because you have a massive talent I am so honoured you was at our special day thank you again xxxxxxxxx
Myself and my beautiful wife Joanne would like to thank you for being a big part of our special day.
Gem sang for us all day where she sung our favourite hymns including the bridal entrance at the church. We picked some not so popular hymns which was great as it showcased her amazing voice. Gem has a voice of an angel and has had numerous comments off our guest during the night and the days afterwards. Whilst me and the wife were getting photographed Gem sang at our …drink reception doing an acoustic set and later being our entertainment for the night getting everyone up on the dance floor enjoying themselves. From start to finish Gem was so professional and kept us up to date with everything and was just as excited about being at our wedding than us!! Our first dance was to a song that was special to my wife and I. Gem took it to herself to learn it and perform it so beautifully for us that it will stay in our minds forever. I can’t recommend Gem highly enough and she would make the best day of your life so special.
Thanks again Gem
Colin and Joanne Lee
Thankyou for making our night so special. We couldn’t have asked for more. You sang beautifully. We wished you could have sang all night for us. We will treasure this memory forever. Your one amazing talented lady. Thankyou for the bottom of our heart’s, Lorna & Dawn Knowles x
We would just like to say Thankyou for yesterday you were amazing from start to finish, we loved it and so did our guests, so many people had nothing but good words to say about you and the fact you got down on the dance floor to sing amongst us all dancing was just fab.
Thankyou again xx
We heard Gem singing at a Wedding Fayre last year and decided straight away we wanted Gem to sing at our wedding. From the booking onwards Gem was amazing, we had regular conversations about the wedding and the playlist, with Gem offering to learn a personal song for our ceremony. On the day Gem created a fabulous atmosphere for the guests as she sang a playlist we had chosen together. Her rendition of ‘A Thousand Years’ as I walked down the aisle was truly spectacular and we cannot stop watching the video back! Throughout the day, guests were commenting on how great Gem sounded and how her music added an extra depth the the wedding. We cannot thank Gem enough for making our wedding beautiful and getting everyone on the dance floor! If you are looking for an acoustic wedding singer, then look no further – we cannot recommend Gem enough. X
