Paula Marie performed at mine and my friends joint 40th on Saturday 26th November 2016. We chose to host a Hollywood themed party and wanted music that reflected this. Paula was more than happy to accommodate and catered to our every need providing us with an array of Hollywood songs from the 1930's to 1960's. It has to be said, her voice is absolutely stunning and she was very professional throughout the night. The guests were blown away by her vocals as were we, and have recommended her to sev...

Contact beforehand with Paula was timely, good humoured and helpful. She arrived in extremely good time, was gorgeously turned out and warm with our guests. Slick and professional she selected her tracks in collaboration with us, sensitively responding to guests' evident desire for the more up tempo tracks in her repertoire. Ultimately though it was the rich quality and perfect pitch of her voice that drew compliments from so many of our guests. How smugly pleased are we that we picked this act ...

Thank you so so much for singing at our wedding on Friday! We are being overwhelmed by all of the positive comments from our guests about Paula! Everyone LOVED her! We are so sad that we were busy having pictures taken and therefore missed the set ourselves. The singer looked amazing - she knew that we were having a 1920's themed wedding so dressed in a 1920's dress to suit the theme. She was also happy to take requests from our guests and adapted her set times due to some late running. Cannot r...

We had Paula to sing at my Mum’s 80th birthday party, this was a surprise present from all the family. Paula sang my Mum’s favourite songs from the 1940’s, which I was able to choose and she sang them in 3 sets throughout the evening. Paula looked very professional with hair, make up, clothes from the era and even a vintage 1940’s microphone to complete the look. Paula kept me informed of everything prior to the evening so it all went smoothly on the night. Paula chatted to my Mum and other gues...
