May 2012 (Wedding)

"Dear Vanessa, I hope you are well? Jamie and I wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you so much for everything you did on our wedding day on 26th May. You were absolutely fantastic and we are so happy we found you. You made the hymns very fulfilling and the entrance and signing of the register music was beautiful! Your perforrmance of 'you only live twice' for the exit sounded wonderful, and our ceremony with your lovely music is something we will remember for ever :) So many people kept saying to us how great you were and I am sorry that I did not get to speak to you in person. I hope we will have another opportunity to meet again some day."

14 April 2012 (Wedding)

"Hi Vanessa. Just to say thank you for performing at our wedding. You were absolutely fantastic and I really enjoyed having you there!!! I had so many guests and the venue management come and tell me how wonderful you were and wanted your name for future events. I was very proud to have such a lovely voice and sweet person sing for us all on our special day. The only complaint was that I had not booked you for long enough. You were worth every penny. Hopefully our paths will cross again sometime xxx"
