Personal Testimonials I received by email 2008 – 2010

Hi Sonya,

Sorry it has taken me so long to get round to sending this!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the effort you put into arranging so much for me prior to the wedding. Being a little out of touch with what was appropriate, I will be eternally grateful for all your advice and suggestions and constant assistance. It made my day to have the harpists there and your recommendation was just perfect. The music was stunning in the church and so fitting.

As for the reception, it’s a blur for me but my mum had a constant stream of people telling her how amazing you were at the church and the reception. It really lifted the drinks reception and was so classy, fitting very well with our theme.

I can’t thank you enough and am so glad I found you. I knew you were perfect as soon as I heard your voice!

I wish you every success in the future

We just wanted to contact you to say thanks for doing such a great job at the wedding (April 4th Mount Argus Church, Harold’s Cross) Everyone commented on the music and the singing, and how lovely your voice was (and they’re a tough crowd) we really appreciate the efforts you went to in order to get the music just right. Thanks a million for making our day extra special!

“Wedding Music : Sonya Grimes – – 087 2287873
What a voice! Sonya is a total professional and she was full of great advice about what songs to pick.

I was not too sure about what bits you need songs for but she talks you through all the stages and how many songs you need and she has a great choice for all tastes.

Everyone loved her voice she had the place in tears. Her voice really did send shivers down me when I was walking up the aisle I would highly recommend her.”


Wedding Singer Recommendation
by jennyandtim » Thu Sep 18, 2008 9:47 am

Hi Folks. I’m married one week today and want to recommend the singer I had for our wedding service. Her name is Sonya Grimes.

She is classically trained, has a fab voice, is a very nice person and was extremely helpful when I was choosing the music for the church service.

I had a lot of wedding guests talking about her after the service too and she told me that a lot of people went up to her after the church to tell her how good she was. I’d absolutely have no hesitation recommending her to anyone. She was really brilliant and a lovely person. She has a website where you can have a listen to some sample songs.

She was more expensive than another singer that we were thinking of, but she was well worth the extra money for her professionalism and amazing voice.

The ceremony was something we’d put a lot of work into, choosing readings etc and the music and it was definitely worth it. The music in particular (we had Sonya Grimes as the singer and she had her own accompanist) was complimented over and over by guests. We kept looking at each other and smiling. like loons!
