The Paper Hearts Acoustic Guitar, Violin, Vocal Duo
Lauraspaperheart is a heart-melting solo acoustic act based in and around East London. A classic mixture of warm guitar strings and soaring, ethereal vocals, Laura traverses an eclectic mix of material, your favourite songs from The Forties to The Noughties and beyond. A refreshing acoustic wedding singer, Laura’s charming reworking of popular songs and classics have made her a big hit on YouTube and comparisons have been made in vocal ability to that of Eva Cassidy and Joni Mitchell.
"Myself and my now husband! booked Laura for our wedding on the 23rd January, to perform at both the ceremony and the evening reception.
when we were looking for a singer to book, as soon as we heard Laura we knew we had to have her perform on our day! And from the day dot she has been amazing.
She accommodated the extra time we asked for, meaning she was about at our venue from 1pm until 1130pm. She also learnt 3 songs for us so we could have exactly what we wanted at the special moments in our day.
It was just magical walking down the aisle to her beautiful voice and she kept all of our guests happy at our evening reception with a wide range of music.
Her voice is just amazing. Every one of our guests commented on how amazing she was! and she is such a lovely person too! Even when she was done at the end of the night, and the guests wanted more, Laura obliged and agreed to another few songs when the Best Man asked!
I would 100% recommend her to anyone who is looking for something a bit different for their wedding or a party ect. you will not be disappointed. Thank you Laura! You made our day extra special xxx"

Laura has an absolutely beautiful voice and added such a special touch to our day, everybody commented on how lovely she was. I only wish I had booked her for longer! Laura actually brought tears to our eyes with our special song request - thank you so so much. If ever I have another event I will DEFINITELY be in touch. Magical.

Laura and the pianist did an incredible job. It was really special that she was able to learn some songs for the ceremony at our request. Our guests were gushing! Her voice was so beautiful. Even our photographer was highly impressed - and as he is at weddings every weekend that's an even bigger compliment. Her set list was perfect and her voice was stunning. We were so lucky.

Laura was fab and totally got the laid back, relaxed vibe we were going for. We had asked her to learn one of our favourite songs as the entrance music and she it played it beautifully. Thank you! x
