booked Kelly Barnes for their Wedding in East Sussex

“Kelly Barnes, you are an amazing performer, you made our wedding day very very special indeed and we will always remember that beautiful voice. Singing and playing Songbird by Eva Cassidy as my wife to be walked down the aisle was just breath taking. It took all my concentration as the groom not to cry (I might have failed a little) An absolutely beautiful moment that we will always remember. After the ceremony the set in the bar was superb, fantastic song choices, modern with some classics that had all our guests comment on how super talented you are. You made our special day extra special and we can’t thank you enough. Stunning!”

Everything was perfect - thank you Kelly!

booked Kelly Barnes for their event in Nottinghamshire

“Kelly's vocals and acoustic guitar were amazing. Kelly performed during the dinner for 118 guests and played exactly the right songs at the right volume to set the mood and atmosphere. Guests were clapping after every song. It was so much better than I could imagine. One of my guests is now looking to book her for their wedding next year.”
