Your Wedding, Your Music, Your Way

Having the music you want will completely transform your Wedding, but don’t just take my word for it…

As a celebrant I work with lots of musicians but I adore working with Samantha. She’s so professional, plays fantastic music that creates a wonderful atmosphere and is happy to work around me too! She’s a ‘must-have’ for your wedding in France.

We both just want to thank you for your wonderful performance on Tuesday. Very impressive in that heat!

We have had so many compliments to pass onto you and everyone really enjoyed it.

All the very best,

Sam is fabulous, she creates the perfect atmosphere! She has played at our venue a number of times and all of our couples and their guests have loved her. She can provide music from your ceremony to your drinks reception. She always has guests dancing to her music! So looking forward to having her back next summer!

Having Samantha play the cello at our Chateau la Durantie wedding was one of the best decisions that we made throughout the whole wedding planning process. She played my ‘walking down the aisle’ song (not a dry eye in the place) as well as throughout the drinks reception. It really made all of the difference to that part of the day and I am still having guests tell me just how lovely it was and how much they enjoyed the music. As well as being such a talented musician, she is also a brilliant person to have around on a notoriously stressful day – a calming presence throughout and a total professional – nothing phases her. Really cannot recommend Samantha enough!

Samantha Bramley , thank you for playing so beautifully at this (our) wedding. Your music was just beautiful. It’s unfortunate that the weather took a bit of a turn, but thank you for continuing despite many taking shelter in the bar! Your playlist is amazing and your help in the run up to the wedding in building the play list and running schedule was very much appreciated as was the way in which you liaised with Lisa Lister to ensure all the timings were good. You are so talented as well as being a lovey person. On behalf of myself and Mel, thank you so very much!

“We have just come home from our beautiful wedding in the Dordogne. An absolute highlight was Samantha’s music. I decided to surprise my now-husband with a cellist and chose a wide range of songs from Samantha’s excellent repertoire. I also chose a bespoke song, Hooked on a Feeling, which is a song my husband and I love. It was perfect. Samantha was really flexible and brilliant at replying to my emails. I cannot recommend enough and she is certainly willing to go the extra mile! Thank you!”

“I love working with Samantha from Wedding Music France. She is, first of all, a great musician, but equally she is a real professional – easy to contact, friendly and adaptable – responding easily to changing circumstances of weather, location and clients. I warmly recommend her to couples getting married in France.”


“Un immense merci pour avoir rajouter de la magie a cette belle journée de samedi. Vous avez été parfaite et les gens ont adoré.

“Hi Samantha,

Well what a day! It truly was very special and everyone without exception contributed greatly to that.

A special thank you to you for not just our wonderful music which was superb but also your communication during the whole process and your personal warmth on the day (not forgetting your super colour co-ordination!).”

“The most important day of your life, wherever you choose to do it, you want it to be a success. You might be worried about booking online without ever meeting the person but that’s exactly what I did and it was the best day of my life.

Being a perfectionist I have high standards, Samantha from the start was amazing.

In the run up to the wedding dealing with my 100’s of emails and constant changes Samantha always responded.

On the day, the music was just simply perfect, filled with emotion and the most beautiful songs played with such precision.

Thank you Samantha for playing your part in my dream day. I have memories that I will keep forever,


Rebecca, Château Rigaud, Gironde, July 2017



“It was such a beautiful day and [Samantha] made it all the more special. Pedro and Joyce absolutely loved the surprise.

Pedro was absolutely gobsmacked when he saw Samantha playing. He didn’t quite believe what was happening.
Joyce couldn’t hold her tears back during their first dance, while Samantha played Beauty and the Beast, her all time favourite.
Samantha playing was the highlight of the day and everyone was so surprised and amazed by how magical she made the whole experience.”
Alessandra (London/Brazil), Domaine de Grolhier, Dordogne, September 2016


“Hi Samantha,

Just a quick email to say thank you so much for helping to make our big day so special.

You did a fab job, the music was great.

All the best,

“I met Samantha at my wedding on Saturday, where she was playing as the only musician  … a ‘cello. I can say that Samantha is a delightful young lady and a very talented musician. But being very modest, I will sing her praises on her behalf. She plays the ‘cello, reads music, and has a very impressive array of audio equipment to give her backing tracks. She can play classical pieces from sheet music, but also all the latest pop songs with backing tracks… She can operate on her own and with all her speakers and audio equipment she sounds like “a one (wo)man band” …. I couldn’t resist the pun. I feel she is a safe pair of hands that you can rely on for your weddings.”

Phil, of Celebrants In France, Domaine de Grolhier, Dordogne, September 2015


“Samantha was a true find for our wedding ceremony at the Chateau de la Cazine! Her willingness to come out to the countryside and to accommodate our every whim from the cocktail hour to the ceremony and the reception was extraordinary. She even practiced with my partner and accompanied her for a solo  vocal performance during the ceremony! Samantha is an accomplished ‘cellist with a broad repertoire; her solo performance was more than enough music (as she promised it would be!) and her musical selections added to an atmosphere of grand elegance fitting for a chateau wedding!”

“I would wholly recommend Samantha Bramley for any English or Irish couples getting married in France.
The music in the church was beautiful, exactly as we hoped it would be. We had stunning music and it added so much to our day. Samantha is fantastic to deal with and very responsive to emails.”

You are certainly one of a kind.
Sometimes words aren’t enough to describe my experience.  I suppose that’s why it’s once in a lifetime…”

“If you are looking for perfect music on your wedding day, let it with Samantha!
My wife and I were wondering about what kind of music would be the right one for our special day. Fortunately we chose Samantha, and it was the perfect combination! She not only gave us good music as expected. She gave us a fabulous show! Everyone enjoyed it a lot!
More than that, Sam helped us since our first contact, and let us very comfortable to choose and ask for our favorite songs.
Strongly and Truly Recommended!!!”
