Martin & Emma – Moxhull Hall, Sutton Coldfield
“On behalf of my new wife Emma & I we’d like to give a HUGE thank you to Simon for singing at our wedding on Friday 3rd June. We first met Simon when he sang at my brothers wedding 6 years earlier & we knew then that we must have Simon to sing at our wedding. Simon learnt to sing This I Promise You to be sung moments before we made our vows in church. It was a truly special moment, one we’ll never forget. Simon also played throughout our wedding breakfast on his stunning baby grand piano lit up in our wedding colours which looked amazing! The setup of the marquee allowed us to keep the evening hidden from guests view and when we finally opened the curtain to reveal Simon it looked awesome, his new stage really adding something extra. Simon sang two sets and the dance floor was full! Our guests were so impressed with Simon and his fantastic voice! We both highly recommend Simon to sing at your wedding if you’re looking for something extra special that will leave long lasting happy memories. Thanks Simon!”
Vanessa & Thomas – Abby Wood Estate, Delamere Forest
“Hi Simon. A huge thank you from myself and Thomas for making our wedding so special. You were perfect and I’d recommend everyone to book you! From when you played the piano at our drinks reception to singing live for our first dance you were fantastic. Excellent DJ and everybody said how great you were. We are so pleased to have found such a great musician for our wedding.”
Nikki & Antony – Frensham Pond Hotel, Farnham, Surrey
“We just wanted to say thank you for being part of our wedding last month. The music throughout the day was perfect and the guests were commenting about how good it all was. Some said the ceremony music was so good they didn’t realise it was live until they saw you. Thank you for learning our first dance song. The music on the day was all perfect and well organised. It was one thing I knew I didn’t have to worry about on the day. We will definitely be recommending you to friends and may see you at other weddings in the future. All the best, Nikki & Antony Robinson.”
Amanda & Steven – Shrigley Hall Hotel, Macclesfield
Hope you’re well.
We’ve just calmed down from the weekend and wanted to say a big thank you to you for helping to make our day so special. Everything you did from the beginning to end was perfect and we’ve had plenty of amazing comments from our guests. The attention to detail was second to none and it really did show throughout the day. You were discreet and very professional in making sure things were happening to plan and this made us feel relaxed, confident and reassured that it was one thing we didn’t have to check on.
The only down side was that we didn’t have as much of an opportunity to spend time sitting and watching your performances but at least all our guests did. We do, however remember there being some amazing song choices so thank you again for everything…it truly gave the day the edge we hoped it would.
Oh… and we will definitely 100% recommend you to everyone and anyone!
Amanda and Steven Burke”
Adam & Catherine – Bagden Hall, West Yorkshire

“Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding on 24th September! So many of our guests have commented on how good you were, we were all so impressed.

Catherine & Dean – Chester Zoo
Dean and I have just returned to London from our mini moon in Devon and did not want to delay any further in expressing our warmest gratitude for making our wedding day all that bit more special.
All our guests have raved non stop on how amazing you were and many didn’t even realise you were singing live, it was that great.
Please please include in your future sets The Style Council, Your the best thing, as it completely blew us away, you sang it so beautifully and we prefer your vocals to Paul Weller it was that amazing.
Again Thank you so so much for lending your voice and musical skills to our special day.
Cat and Dean”

I was so glad i kept you as a surprise, every single guest from young to old praised you and wanted to know who you were.

Now that we are back in the swing of things, I just wanted to say thank you so much again for making our wedding day so perfect. We had lots of compliments about how we looked, how the barn and function room was dressed, the beautiful flowers, but none as many as we’ve had about you!
People are still talking at both of our works about how fantastic you were….. I went on your FB page and wrote a comment, do I just share that with my friends to like/comment on or should I do this on your website?
Well thank you again Simon, you’re an extremely talented man and we would vote for you all day long on the x factor!!!

Sam & Daniel – Priory Cottages, Yorkshire
“Good afternoon Simon
Firstly may we wish you a happy new year and we hope you had an amazing festive period.
Duncan, Amanda, Samantha and I wanted to say a huge thank you for helping make our wedding day perfect please see below a testimonial:
Simon is a hugely talented musician and singer who really helped make our wedding day so special. We decided that the entertainment was very important to us, after a few emails and listening to Simon’s sample albums we knew he was the right person for us. Everything in the build up to our wedding was organised with the upmost professionalism and minimum of fuss, come the big day Simon delivered everything and more he promised. During the wedding breakfast Simon played his new white baby grand piano and sang beautifully! Every one of our guests commented on how incredible he sounded and what a truly great person he is. We booked Simon to sing and DJ in the evening too,his sets were truly brilliant and really contributed to making our wedding day perfect in every way! For our first dance Simon played live on his baby grand piano and sang John Legend’s ‘all of me’ which made it even more special! We really can’t thank Simon enough and would highly recommend him to anyone looking at booking a singer, it’s rare to find someone so incredibly talented and a truly genuine nice guy!
Thank you so much
Daniel and Samantha”
Kate & James – Farbridge Barns, Chichester
“We choose to go with Simon for our wedding at Farbridge Barns Chichester, West Sussex, we do not regret one thing in picking Simon!
He was absolutely fabulous from start to finish and so professional.
Its always hard & a little worrying picking entertainment for your own wedding when you can’t hear them live but judging from Simon’s website and the demos he has produced on there it was exactly what we got.
We choose the all day package and it was worth every penny, having Simon sing as I walked down the aisle was the best thing, also whilst signing the registrar and whilst walking up the aisle – it really made the ceremony having live music.
We were blown away by your singing you really were fantastic. I had a lot of comments and compliments from our guests, some people thought it was a C.D!
It was a glorious day and a lot of guests were outside mingling chatting and drinking! So people didn’t want to come in and dance so early on, Simon managed to get people in by his array of many different songs he played and by the end of the night the dance floor was busy.
We were so happy with Simon, his overall performance was outstanding. He is an easy going welcoming guy that will help and listen to you along the way. If I ever had any concerns before the day he would answer all my questions and really made me feel at ease. Also a big thank you to Laura Simon’s PA.
Myself and James want to thank you for making our wedding so special.
I recommend Simon to anyone looking for professional, outstanding live music. Do not be concerned…
Kate & James
Benedict & Fazarna – The Savoy, London
Farzana and I just wanted to thank you once again for the fantastic singing you provided for the ceremony and afternoon.
We were really so delighted how the day went, and your singing really helped make it feel such a special day. We had so many comments from everyone say what a great performer you were and how nice it made the day. The first dance was absolutely perfect (from your side at least !) and final song of the afternoon was so special- we are really grateful for all the evident preparation you made before the day and on the day itself.
I’ve included a picture Barrie sent us already, and if we get any other nice ones that could be useful for you we’l be happy to send them.
Benedict and Farzana”
Sarah & Craig – Guyzance Hall, Northumberland
“On behalf of my husband and self we would like to thank Simon for a truly memorable wedding evening.
From the moment he arrived his professional manner was impeccable!
Our first dance was out of this world; Simon not only sang the song amazing – he received many comments from our guests who were truly amazed that it was sung live!
We continue to get only brilliant comments about Simon.
Thank you from Mr & Mrs McFarlane”
Mr & Mrs James – Ettington Park Hotel, Warwickshire
You made our big day truly special!
You are a real star and we are very very pleased with your work!!
Love Mr & Mrs James”
Claire & Paul – Crabwall Manor, Cheshire
We can not thank you enough for everything you did for us on our special day.
Your performances during our wedding breakfast and in the evening couldn’t have been more perfect.
You probably got as many compliments as we did from our guests.
And your performance for our first dance was amazing and made it incredibly special for us.
Thank you so much,
Love Claire & Paul xxx”
Paul & Caroline – Rowton Hall Hotel, Chester
“We hired Simon on the basis that he could both sing and act as a DJ through a friend’s recommendation. We did not imagine that he would be such a fantastic addition to our day; his repertoire of songs is vast and was in perfect sync with the tone of the day; meeting with us prior to the wedding day to get an understanding of our wishes was brilliant and to see his track-list showed he certainly listened! Thanks to Simon, the wedding reception music was beautiful and created a wonderful ambiance at our venue and his evening playlist ensured that we had a full dance floor from the moment he started (8pm!) right through to 12.30 – I have not been to a wedding where this has happened for a full four and a half hours! Anyone considering who to hire to perform at their wedding should choose Simon. His service, professionalism and most important his quality was magnificent and we cannot recommend him highly enough.
Best wishes Paul & Caroline Cherpeau”
Charlotte & David – Albrighton Hall Hotel, Shrewsbury
Just wanted to finally say a massive thank you for making our day so special.
Your performances were amazing, everyone, including ourselves thought you were great. (Still talked about now!)
Charlotte & David”
Mr & Mrs Baldwin – The Monastery, Manchester
“Simon was absolutely fantastic. He blew the full room away with our first dance which he sung live and made it one of the most memorable moments of our wedding.
One of the best things about Simon is his unfaltering ability to judge the ambience of the room and sing/DJ to meet that vibe, this quality ensured our dance floor was always packed with all ages.
I will be hiring Simon for all of my family’s future events.
James & Mary – Northop Hall, Mold, Wales
Thank You is not adequate for your brilliant performance at Mary & James’ Wedding!
Everyone is still talking about what a Superb Day it was. The Highlight of the Day was your Singing & the way you tied the whole event together from The Brides Choice of Entrance Music to your Live Singing of “Amazed” while they signed the Register; onto your superb rendition of “She” while they cut the cake to “Chasing Cars” (First Dance) & the seamless way you incorporated an old Classic of Edith Piaf’s “La Vie en Rose” to a brilliant Live Set with a Full Dance Floor ~ you even blended the Culture’s with a Set of Mauritian Saga Dancing!
As a very Proud Mother of The Groom I would like to Thank You Sincerely for your Contribution to our day & including Special Favorites for us all!
Here’s to the Next Time! . . . . . .
Rob & Louise – The Red Hall, Bury
We had an amazing wedding day and you made it extra special for us! All our guests loved you and have all told us how great you are! – which we knew already!! Three ‘couples to be’ have asked me for your contact details for their weddings so i really hope something comes from that for you.
Everyone said your singing was fantastic and some guests didn’t even realise you were singing because you sounded so great!
Thank you for making the extra effort with the lights and background, it definitely turned the room into a ‘party room’ for the evening, it was magical!
Emma sends a special thanks for ‘Grease Lightening’ she loved it as did we all.
Thank you for all the songs you sang and for getting together the songs we wanted to hear.
We will definitely recommend you to everyone we know!
Please find attached some pictures from the night, I hope they are ok (if you don’t receive 4 please let me know). you can use any of them if you want to.
Just returned from our honeymoon so lots of unpacking to do now!

Michelle & Matt – Tatton Park, Cheshire
I just wanted to drop you this note to thank you for the splendid job you did at my daughters wedding (Michelle/Matt 3rd July).
I was particularly impressed with the way you managed to entertain us all and keep the day flowing, but without being remotely annoying or ‘in your face’. I hope you understand what I mean. I thought you were terrific. You catered for all ages and were able to accommodate all styles. It was a perfect backdrop for the more formal parts of the day followed by a ‘full on session’ in the evening where we could all let our hair down.
Trust me when I tell you that everybody I have spoken to thought you were brilliant.
I just wanted to share that with you. The day would not have been the same without you.
All the best for the future.
Sian & Lee – Rowton Hall Hotel, Chester
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for singing at our wedding !
So many people asked me where I had found you, and said how amazing you were. The singing at the meal along with the piano was especially beautiful. You are extremely talented, and made our day extra special.
I will make sure to recommend you to all my friends for events in the future.
Sian and Lee xx”
Stuart & Karen – Bournemouth Highcliff Marriott Hotel
We hope you are well and had a good journey back home from Bournemouth. Although our wedding was just over four weeks ago, we’ve only just begun to catch up with things so we are sorry we couldn’t write to you sooner.
Everyone we’ve spoken to since our wedding have said how much they enjoyed the evening reception. They’ve all commented on your brilliant performance and keep asking how we found you. Our Wedding Day was fantastic of which you were a big part of. If we remember, I think your father may have taken some photos. If possible please could you send us some and we’d be most grateful.
Should you wish for us to write a testimonial, please let us know as we’d be happy to do this.
If you ever find yourself again in the Bournemouth/Poole area please look us up.
Regards & Best Wishes

Abbi & Adam – Back of their Nan’s house!
“This is a testimonial for our fantastic wedding singer Simon Dorey.
It is always fairly risky with booking someone without hearing them live, however that’s exactly what we did for our wedding on 16th July 2011 and we couldn’t have asked for a better singer!!!!!
I booked Simon after months and months of trawling through the internet looking for the perfect wedding singer for our perfect day, I stumbled across Simon’s website and after hearing his demo songs and the packages he had to offer I knew he was the wedding singer for myself and Adam.
I have got to say Simon was one of the key elements which made our wedding from the first moment where he sang Your Song whilst we was signing the register with his live vocals and piano playing at the church to the fantastic live performance during our wedding breakfast to Simon singing our first dance “Everything” Michael Buble to simon getting all our guest’s up to party all night long.
My mum said she could have listened to Simons voice all night long. Myself, Adam and all our guests were just stunned on how amazing Simon’s voice was.
Myself and Adam would personally like to thank Simon from the bottom of our hearts your whole performance was absolutely amazing!!!! All our guests where talking about you all night long, and in the church, guests thought the songs you performed where being played from a CD.
Simon was genuinely one of the nicest men we have ever met, he was approachable and friendly throughout the day nothing was too much trouble.
Your performances were truly amazing.
Thank you so much Simon you helped make our day perfect.
Abbi and Adam Fanthorpe”
Lynn & Colin – The Gibbon Bridge Hotel, Lancashire
“Dear Simon, Would just like to say a big thank you for being part of our wedding day on Sunday. Your performances on the Grand piano after the ceremony were perfect. We also very much enjoyed your singing in the evening and would recommend you to anyone who wants a great singer. Take care & all the best for the future.

Tricia & Dusty – Mecure Hotel, Birmingham
“Ok here goes…….Simon sang at our Wedding reception on the 16th August. WOW!!! He was amazing. A fantastic voice, very professional, and a Gentleman to boot!!! I would highly recommend him for any function, big or small. I (The Bride) Had been looking forward to hearing him perform for months, and i was blown away. He made my evening. The only downfall was, that i couldn’t bring him home after ward, and have him sing Michael Buble songs all day!!!!! My guests all complimented on his fabulous voice, and i know many have enquired about booking him for other events.
Thank you so much Simon for topping off a wonderful day, with a wonderful Evening. Your performances where amazing! And i wouldn’t hesitate to book you again for further functions. AMAZING!!!!!!!
Tricia and Dusty xxxx.”
Hayley & Rich – Back of their Parents’ House!
“textfield: this is just a feedback message – you performed at our daughter’s wedding Hayley Trower and i would like to thank you immensely, we are still getting fantastic comments about your whole performance from the ambient setting during the afternoon meal where everyone could clearly hear your singing voice and music and thought you were outstanding to the evening session (and I know you had a lot to cope with as everyone was very lively!) where you adapted your DJ music and vocals to suit the crowd superbly – everyone keeps on commenting how excellent you were so cannot thank you enough – would recommend you for any event! Do hope it wasn’t too difficult an event for you either as appreciate the distance you had to travel – Hayley said she would forward any photographs that she got to you as some of their friends took some during the night – everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves especially Hayley and Richard which is all that we could wish for! Thanks again and good luck in all you do – with all our best wishes Ian and Linda.
Hi Simon, finally got round to forwarding you a couple of pics from the evening of our big day, hope you like them. Can’t believe you could still sing well on the shoulders. People still commenting on you and what a great party it was! Many thanks again and will recommend you to everyone. Hayley & Rich”
Karen & David – Hazlewood Castle, North Yorkshire
Just wanted to thank you again for the performance you put on at our wedding. Our guests thought some of your songs were CD versions they were that good. As for recommending you to others viewing your website, we’d both say to get you booked before someone else is fortunate enough to do so. Your performances were top quality and I wish I’d not been so busy getting married as to miss some of them….!
Thank you again.
David & Karen.
Message from Karen
I was very touched by your Fields of Gold performed whilst signing our register. I couldn’t help but well up with emotion & tears it meant so much. I’m very grateful you took the time to rehearse this for me. It couldn’t have been more personal if you’d tried.
