It is rare to find someone so professional. Annelise since the first contact I made has been so thoughtful and really kindly explained each step of the process. The communication was great, for quick messages we used WhatsApp. Organizing a wedding is not something you do on a daily basis I did not have any experience with live music or even knew what I really wanted. She gently guided us in the process, provided videos and audios of her previous performances, and let us focus on shortlisting our favorite songs while she was taking care of all other logistic details with the venue. On the Big Day, she arrived on time, her presence was really elegant. For 3 hours we have been her priority, when we needed the flexibility to move the dancing on the first floor because guests preferred to gather there, she quickly moved her equipment. She has been able to create an amazing atmosphere, I do have incredible memories, from the first dance to the last family dance with all our children hugging each other and sharing this special time together. I would definitely invite her to other big occasions in our life.

Annelise was brilliant! Everything was so good- contact, chats about our evening and what we were hoping for and Annelise certainly delivered all we’d wanted - a Christmas swing to get the party season started. Our guests were so appreciative so couldn’t have asked for more. Highly recommend

The Jazz Woman was perfect in every way. Prompt, communicative and responsive. Everyone at the party loved her and commented on her style. This was important to us as we were catering for all ages and tastes. She sang beautifully. I would definitely recommend and book again.
