As a frequent wedding performer, I believe can provide the perfect musical accompaniment for your day!
With a huge amount of experience, over time I have assembled an extensive repertoire lending itself perfectly to all parts of the wedding day: during the ceremony itself for entrances, exits and the signing of the register, drinks reception, between the wedding breakfast and the reception, or for the reception itself. I am extremely flexible regarding times and venues, as I know sometimes the wedding day plans can change! I take time to work with couples prior to their day, tailoring the set list to their liking, and I am more than happy to learn any song requests, even the first dance!
I know how hard it is to try and decide what to choose for your wedding day - I got married not too long ago and trying to get everything together was crazy! I believe the best thing for you is to hear from previous couples who I have performed for, so below are a few testimonials that I'm ever so grateful for. Please feel free to have a read, I hope you enjoy them :)

"Annemarie Quinn was the most perfect addition to our wedding day. From start to finish Annemarie was a total professional and went out of her way to make sure that our wedding celebration went without a hitch. Annemarie's performance of our chosen wedding songs was better than we ever imagined - even though Annemarie hadn't even heard a couple of them before she sang and played them flawlessly. Our only regret on our wedding day was that we were not able tp sit in the congregation and listen to Annemarie's full set of songs - unforunately getting married kind of got in the way of that! I cannot recommend Annemarie enough - a truly wonderful performer and a beautiful person. Please do not hesitate in booking her for your special occasion - you will not regret it."

"Annemarie performed at our wedding in July 2014. Prior to the day, we had a lot of communication about the songs she would perform, and she was also really enthusiastic about learning songs that were special to us, making her performance feel especially personal. She has a beautiful voice and plays the guitar excellently - so many of our guests commented on her performance and it was one of the most memorable parts of our day!"

"My partner and I both wanted a small wedding but one that would be truly memorable for those special guests that joined us.
Having played the guitar since he can remember, my now husband, was tasked with finding suitable entertainment. After a lot of looking and listening he clicked onto Annemarie's website and we kept our fingers crossed she was available.
From the start Annemarie was extremely engaging, genuinely interested in our day and what we wanted to achieve working alongside us to agree our individual requirements. The first time I spoke to Annemarie on the telephone I felt like I had been chatting to my friend finding her incredibly personable yet professional and on our wedding day that same delightful personality shone through.
Annemarie has a truly haunting voice that both captivates and moves you at the same time. She is also very versatile being able to draw from a wide selection of music both past and present. Annemarie is comfortable and at ease when performing and her passion for music is clear to see.
Annemarie delivered over and above our expectations and her relaxed, informal style made her a pleasure to be around. We could not have chosen anyone more appropriate to help us celebrate our day and we would not hesitate to book her again in the future."

"Hi Annemarie, just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for sharing the day with us. We had so many people ask how we found you and how great you were :) You were an amazing support and a total giggle! My kind of girl!! Can't wait to come and see you perform again and i'll be sure to give you a big hug! Love Vicky and Mark xxxx"

"Annemarie played live at our recent wedding. She was recommended by the hotel's wedding planner (even though she'd not played at that particular venue before) and once we listened to her music online, we were convinced that having her play on our special day would make it all the more wonderful.
Annemarie contacted us beforehand with a suggested list of songs and in addition, asked whether there were any songs that we would like included. My suggestion of 'Ace of Spades' by Motorhead was rejected by Sofia but Annemarie learned all the others and performed them on the night.
And what a performance! Having listened to her on Youtube we expected her to be fantastic but she exceeded our expectations by a long way. All the guests were hugely impressed with her singing, playing and attitude (Annemarie is a lovely person and took the effort to chat to us and other guests, even though she was somewhat pre-occupied with setting up).
We would heartily recommend Annemarie if anyone is looking for live music, not only for a wedding but for any occasion. Thank you so much for making our day perfect."

"We had the pleasure of Anne Marie singing at our wedding as a wedding present from family after seeing her at a wedding fayre we attended. Every guest who attended our wedding commented on how lovely and different her voice was and they all enjoyed listening to her. We would of been quite happy for her to sing all night as our only entertainment. She has a lovely mix of music and appealed to all ages.
Anne Marie even learnt a song we liked for our first dance in only a month which couldn't have been sung any nicer, it really made our first dance that extra special and memorable.
We would recommend Anne Marie to anyone thinking of having a singer at their wedding. We cant wait to listen to her sing again sometime soon.
Huge thanks Anne Marie"

"Annemarie sang at our daughter and son-in-laws evening reception in July 2014. She has a beautiful voice and after a busy wedding day her voice is just what’s needed to keep you going. Annemarie has a wide repertoire which suits everyone. We would highly recommend her for a wedding."

"Annemarie truly is an extra special talent and when we went to see her perform we knew instantly she had to be a part of our Big Day. She generously incorporated some of our most favourite songs into her playlist to make the experience as personable to us as possible. She is also one of the most loveliest people we have ever met and it was an absolute joy to have her at our wedding. Thank you Annemarie xxx"

"From my first meeting with Annemarie (at a wedding fayre) I knew she was the one to perform at our wedding. On the day her music and gorgeous voice created a lovely relaxed atmosphere which our guests really enjoyed. Several of them commented on how fantastic she was.
Annemarie was brilliant in all her correspondence and couldn't have been more helpful. Her set-list is excellent, with a wide variety of songs. Annemarie helped make our day perfect and playing our first dance for us just topped it off. Thank you Annemarie, Gill and Ian xx"

"I just wanted to drop you a message to say how pleased we were with your playing and singing at our wedding. We had so many positive comments about you and your fantastic voice that I felt I wanted to let you know, and other people that may be interested in hiring you, to know. Once again thank you so much you were amazing and worth every penny, Kirsty and Chris x"

"Annemarie’s performance was a highlight of our wedding day, she gave us some very special memories to treasure forever. The most special of which was our first dance sung acoustically which she learnt especially for us. We had wonderful feedback from our friends and family on how unique and distinct her voice is."
Bruce and Claire Binn, 4th June 2012 Armathwaite Hall, Keswick
"Anne-Marie is a very talented solo artist with a sensational voice. She sang and played her guitar at our wedding breakfast for an hour while guests drank cocktails and ate canapés. So many guests commented on her beautiful singing tone and original songs. We were delighted she was available to play at our wedding and helped make our special day perfect."
John and Saskia Patrick, 9th June 2012, New House Farm, Lorton
"We were absolutely thrilled with Anne Marie singing at our wedding. We gave her a list of our favourite songs and she gave them a beautiful, acoustic twist. We love the richness of Anne Marie's voice and how well it worked with her folky/indie style. Thank you for making our wedding so special x"
