|Wedding||"Emilie sang during the signing of the register at our wedding; with over 100 guests Emilie brought the 13th century church to a standstill. With what can only be described as a jaw-dropping performance, my Mayoral Chaplin has never seen a standing ovation given by a wedding congregation in over 50 years of officiating at weddings."|
|Dinner||"We were privileged to be entertained by Emilie at our St. David’s Day Dinner this year. She performed a variety of operatic pieces, previewing each with the story behind each song to give context. Emilie also talked of her upbringing in Gwent, her musical journey and education and her ambitions, leaving us with no doubt of her passion for music. She engaged with the audience with charm and confidence. Her singing was simply stunning. We had very enthusiastic feedback from the guests and we would have no hesitation in recommending Emilie."|
