Meinir can tailor the live music for your wedding to suit your taste. Classical, jazz, contemporary, celtic, or music from the stage and screen.
Meinir speaks English and Welsh and regularly sings in Italian, French, German, Latin and is happy to learn a song in your native language if you prefer.
Choose from solo voice, voice and piano, voice and harp or add a flute or another soloist for that extra dimension.
“The way you’ve sung ‘What are you doing the rest of your life’ will stay in my memory for the rest of my life."
Ward Swingle - Founder of 'The Swingle Singers', May 2006.
“I’d like to thank Meinir for sharing her beautiful voice with us on our wedding day. Your voice blew everyone away, and
so many of our guests have since raved about your beautiful renditions of ‘The Flower Duet’ and ‘Ave Maria’. Thank you for making our ceremony so perfect!”
Luke and Peieta Ace, Our Lady Star of The Sea, March 2007.
"Meinir has a beautifully pure soprano voice and a total mastery of the music she performs. She combines the freshness of youth with the professionalism of an experienced campaigner. Meinir can sell a song with emotion and intensity, yet retain the integrity of the music at all times."
Clive Woosnam - President of Sydney Welsh Choir, June 2007.
