booked Kelly Barnes for their Wedding in Cambridgeshire August 2021

“Kelly was incredible! For the ceremony of our wedding she helped us with how many songs we had to choose for the different parts, and this made our ceremony even more magical as we could select songs that meant stuff to us. Her performance during the ceremony made it so much more romantic and special! Likewise, during the drinks reception Kelly's music was amazing and created a great atmosphere, and all our guests commented on how they loved her. Would definitely recommend!”

Kelly was awesome, thank you so much!

booked Kelly Barnes for their Wedding in Essex August 2021

“Despite having to set up inside then out when the sun come out, our guests have said how amazing Kelly was. She played whilst we were having pictures and she was soo good and exactly what we was looking for. Would highly recommend and hope she plays somewhere local so we can go see her again.”

She made my dream wedding come true with her voice!

booked Kelly Barnes for their Wedding in Hertfordshire August 2021

“Kelly was not only a lovely person to engage with, her musical ability surpassed all my expectations. She learned 4 new songs in total that she made a dream, she made me cry with my wedding entrance song and brought sister act to life with the rest of the 2 songs she performed during our service. Our first dance was a magical Disney dream as she performed Beauty and the Beast and I had so many guests compliment her amazing vocal abilities! They then danced away to her acoustic set. I could not rate her any higher and honestly the quality of what you hear on the Alive network is the same live if not better. Thankyou so much Kelly xx”

Absolutely perfect - added that special something to our wedding day

booked Kelly Barnes for their Wedding in Nottinghamshire July 2021

“Kelly was the one great thing that came out of postponing our wedding day! Initially, she was fully booked for our 2020 date. As soon as we changed to 2021, we got her booked as we knew she’d be the perfect addition to our day. Her voice is truly moving and many guests commented on how amazing she was. In particular, she learnt a requested song for my entrance which made quite a few guests well up. I wish we hadn’t needed to go off for our photos part way through the set as I would have loved to have heard every song! The guests got to fully enjoy both sets and we have a few nice videos with her beautiful voice in the background. Such a lovely, talented and professional lady - so highly recommended for weddings and events… you definitely won’t regret booking her!”

Just Wow!! Fantastic wedding singer

booked Kelly Barnes for their Wedding in West Midlands July 2021

“Kelly was absolutely fantastic. We have had so many positive comments about her during our drinks reception. People wanted to know how we found her. She sang beautifully for our ceremony too and made it feel really personal. She called in the run up to the wedding so that we could discuss everything but it was easy and efficient. Couldn't have wanted anything more. Really recommend! Thank you so much alive network for helping us find her and Kelly you were amazing ??????????”
