Welcome to my world…

Hi, I’m Samantha, I’m a ‘cellist, playing at weddings and other special events in France. I’ve just launched a new website; and as part of it I will be writing the occasional Blog Entry with hints, tips and ideas on how to choose your wedding music, how to get the most from your wedding musicians, and posting playlists from real weddings, that sort of thing. If you have any ideas for a topic you would like to see covered, or if you’d like me to write a guest blog for you, do get in touch! You can hear me play at and suggest songs for me to add to my ever increasing playlist, and upload to my site; (almost) anything goes!
