Classical Wedding Singer
Let classical mezzo soprano, Rachael Cawte, add some extra sparkle and magic to your day.
From the initial consultation, through to the final notes of your favourite song, I will ensure that you have the best accompaniment to your wedding. All packages are tailor made, specifically for you, so all budgets can be catered for.
Able to perform with piano accompaniment or backing tracks, I specialise in classical song. Should you wish for your favourite pop, jazz or folk song to be performed in a classical style, I would be more than happy to accommodate this.
Not sure when you would like your beautiful vocal accompaniment? Here are some ideas to get you started:
Wedding Package 1: Songs of the Ceremony
Why not have music while your guests arrive, during the bride's entrance or during the signing of the register? Rachael can help you to choose the perfect music for your special day.
Wedding Package 2: Music at Breakfast
Treat you and your guests to beautiful singing from Rachael during the reception or wedding breakfast.
Wedding Package 3: Whole Day
With themed music throughout the day, let singer Rachael bring the day together with music as your guests arrive, through to the reception.

Du Bist Wie Eine Blume (Schumann)
Classical singer Rachael Cawte and piano accompanist Marcus Bingham.
A graduate of Leeds College of Music, with a first class honours degree in classical vocal performance, Rachael is a regular soloist with choirs, as well as a rising performer on the operatic stage. It is her love of story telling which she brings to each ceremony that adds extra poignancy and magic to each special day.
She has given recitals across Europe, and had the opportunity to perform with 80's pop icon Marc Almond at The Royal Festival Hall, London.
In the knowledge that each wedding is special, Rachael will be with you every step of the way through your musical journey.
Du bist wie eine Blume
So hold und schön und rein
Ich schau' dich an, und Wehmut
Schleicht mir ins Herz hinein.
Mir ist, als ob ich die Hände
Aufs Haupt dir legen sollt',
Betend, daß Gott dich erhalte
So rein und schön und hold.
You are like a lovely flower,
So fair, so pure thou art;
I gaze on thee, and emotion
Comes stealing o'er my heart.
My hands I fain had folded
Upon thy soft brown hair,
Praying that God may keep thee
So lovely, pure and fair.
