It's always a privilege to be asked to sing at a wedding. After all, you'll have this memory forever!
There are so many awesome things about being a musician. I've been playing guitar since 2006, and singing for even longer, and I still find so much happiness in playing for others. For several years my professional career as a musician was based out of public events and venues - restaurants, local festivals, bars and more. My experience in playing for this field was really great - it was so easy and relaxed, and as a 14-17 year old I couldn't imagine anything better! Until I started gaining traction in the wedding industry...
Weddings are fricken WONDERFUL. I couldn't believe the fun I had at my first few ceremonies - everyone is so joyful and chatty and ready to dance! After I spent a couple years going between public gigs as well as private, I took the leap of commitment into weddings, and other private functions. I have never felt more 'right' as a professional.
I love this industry. It comes with so much stress, organisation, communication, MORE stress and confusion, but all of this is complimented ten-fold with passion, fun, excitement, happy-tears, emotion, love, and JOY. The wedding industry is one I will belong to for a long time, hopefully to a number of fields over time. But! For now - I am here to set the soundtrack to what may be the biggest, funnest, craziest days of your life. I can't wait to be a part of your beautiful day.
I have been performing at weddings for 9 years now and have loved every second of it - there is nothing better than being a part of what just may be the best day of someone's life!
