Ruth is the full package! The first day I contacted her she was on holiday and still insisted on taking my enquiry and on the same day our booking! She was so quick to respond to any query we had. Now the most important part for any couple looking for a wedding singer... Ruth quite simply has the voice of an angel, the passion and emotion that she puts into her singing is amazing. Guests have been commenting to me since about how good she was and there are tears in many eyes for at least two of the songs she sang. We really couldn't recommend Ruth enough, she is an absolute lady to talk to and deal with 15 out of 10 if that was an option.

We booked Ruth as our ceremony singer and from the get go Ruth was amazing. No questions were too big or small and responses were always extremely quick. Ruth and her accompanying musician were absolutely fantastic, the tone to Ruth's voices is just ridiculous and I will be recommending her to all our friends getting married. Ruth was in contact every step of the way, right up to the days leading up to the wedding ensuring that everything was perfect and making sure our kinds were at ease. She arrived at the venue at least an hour before hand to have everything set up and ready to go.

Ruth was absolutely amazing. In the lead up to the wedding she gave us excellent advice and was flexible throughout. We had a family friend sing and she kindly helped him practice and with sheet music. She has a stunning voice and really helped make our day special.

We had Ruth for our wedding on Saturday the 6th of August. What a wonderful voice she has, everybody was talking about it after. Anytime I emailed Ruth with song suggestions or questions she would get back to me very quickly and answer anything I needed to know. I would HIGHLY recommend her.

We had the pleasure of having Ruth sing at our wedding. We had a humanist ceremony and Ruth was so helpful when I needed guidance on music. Ruth also sang for our drinks reception and was accompanied by piano. Ruth was so easy to reach out to and always very responsive. Her vocals were simply stunning and she had such a huge selection of songs but was willing to learn anything new we requested. Our guests were so impressed with the music during the ceremony and drinks reception it was certainly a highlight of the day for us all. We would highly recommend Ruth to any couple planning their wedding.

Ruth sang at our wedding ceremony accompanied by a pianist. Everything was Absolutely perfect on the day. From the very beginning to the day of the wedding Ruth kept in touch throughout and made everything easier on the music front. I couldn’t recommend Ruth enough, the variety of music throughout the drinks ceremony was fantastic. Everyone complimented.

From the moment we started talking to Ruth she made everything so easy for us, bare in mind we were talking through Covid and was unsure if we could even have music. Ruth guided us in the best direction and gave us samples of music. When we had our chosen songs it was no problem to Ruth, we changed some songs in the last minute and there was no problem with that either. (everything was done with a smile) Ruth replied to each message in a timely manner and noting was to much for her. We opted for the piano on the day which also went down a real treat. Our day went perfect and we knew we had chosen the perfect person to sing for our ceremony and drinks reception. A beautiful mix of songs with an incredible voice. We could not have asked for anything more from Ruth. So professional, friendly and a joy to be around.
