WEDDING, BOURNE, 1ST OCTOBER 2016

WEDDING, DERBY, 9TH SEPTEMBER 2016

FROM KIRSTY AND JOE

Thank you so much for performing at our wedding day. Your voice was beautiful and suited our wedding setting perfectly. The songs you performed were fantastic and those we chose for the wedding ceremony were stunning, I couldn't have wished for anything else. It has been a pleasure meeting you and discussing the plans for the day in the run up to the wedding.

You were very professional and even when there was an issue completely beyond your control you found a solution and resolved it without me or Joe having to worry about it.

I would definitely recommend you to others and many thanks again for being part of our special day.

WEDDING, BUXTON, 2ND APRIL 2016

FROM HANNAH AND KELLY
Carolina performed at our wedding. She sang and played the piano during the ceremony and wedding breakfast and she literally brought tears to our guests' eyes. We chose all of the songs from her extensive repertoire so we knew that we would love them all. So many of our guests commented on her beautiful voice. Carolina even got roped into leading a sing along during the meal. What a good sport.

In the evening, Supersession, Carolina's band, joined her and she transformed from a solo singer to a member of a soulful group. Again, we handpicked all of the songs so knew what we were going to get. The dance floor was the focus of the room and Carolina belted out song after song. We did not want to evening to end.

Not only did Carolina bring something extra special to our day, she was also a pleasure to work with from our initial enquiry to the end of the last song. She stayed in regular contact with us throughout the months leading up to our big day. This means so much when you are wedding planning and counting on people to be part of your day.
We could not fault Carolina and would recommend her without reservation. She is a real talent and a true professional. We are so glad that not only was she part of our special day, she helped to make it the best day ever.

WEDDING, LORTON, CUMBRIA - 19TH DECEMBER 2015

FROM MATT AND KERRY

Carolina was extremely professional right from the start, responded quickly to any queries right up until the wedding so there was never any need to worry. She has a beautiful voice and is an exceptionally talented singer and performer - the guests couldn't stop complimenting her perfomance even weeks after the wedding had ended! I would not hesitate in the slightest in recommending this lovely lady for any event, she really added something special to our day

WEDDING, SKIPTON - 11TH JULY 2015

FROM GEMMA

"Carolina has an extraordinary voice and gifted ability on the piano. We've received so many lovely comments from guests at our wedding and even those working the day. People couldn't believe how fantastic she was. The videographer actually decided to use Carolina's singing as the soundtrack to our wedding video. Not only was her music and talent extraordinary - she is extremely easy to work with too. Which is exactly what you need when planning a wedding! We couldn't thank you enough Carolina! You were superb. We will definitely consider using you again for other events and will be recommending you to friends and family. You're one extremely gifted individual. A huge thank you from the Sandfords xx"

WEDDING, ROCHDALE - 25TH JULY 2014
FROM JULIET

"Just wanted to say how wonderful it was when you sang at our wedding. It made the day extra special and I have had so many people saying how talented and how amazing you were. You have a beautiful voice and are such a gifted pianist. I would recommend booking you to perform at any special occasion as you definitely bring the wow factor! Thank you xxx"

BIANCO ITALIAN COFFEE SHOP, SALE - 15TH JUNE 2014
FROM KEITH

"I can’t sing. I do sing, in the shower, in church and in places so far from any other human being that I feel reasonably safe but if I am honest I can’t sing and probably shouldn’t. I wish I could sing and, after today, I wish I could sing like Carolina. She has something about her that isn’t just heard, it’s felt as well.

I don’t mean that her singing has you welling up although some of her songs are so sweetly delivered that it can easily happen. What I mean is that there is a quality to her singing that bypasses the ears. It comes in somewhere at the back of the neck, like a lover’s touch and makes you feel her music somewhere deep inside.

There have been various singers at Bianco over the last few months and I have enjoyed all of them. Some I would listen to again were I in a place where they were playing; some I would make a conscious effort to go and see again but Carolina would draw me back without any decision on my part because hearing her sing is not just about listening it is a wholly different and uplifting experience.

It’s not just me, as I look around the whole café seems entranced and transported to a place that is somewhere beyond the walls of the building."
