Jennie Sawdon Singer and Pianist
Jennie began her musical career in the classical world. She is both a trained opera singer and an excellent pianist.
However, Jennie’s biggest passion, and indeed most rewarding side of her job, is creating the most perfect day for a couple when they get married. Her talent and passion for singing at weddings became clear when, at the end of 2010, she was voted ‘Wedding Singer of the Year 2010’ by The Bridal Magazine. She was then awarded the title of “Best Entertainment Act” in 2012 & 2014 by County Brides Magazine and went on to be a 2015 finalist in this year's competition too.
As a singer and pianist, Jennie is passionate about making it a special and personal experience for each bride and groom and takes great pride in creating a magical atmosphere for you and your wedding guests. Whether it's walking you down the aisle to a bespoke song or playing for you during your reception drinks or wedding breakfast, Jennie can bring that unique touch to your special day.
Jennie now works all over the UK, and indeed the world, singing and playing piano for all sorts of events. Jennie’s style is very diverse and she has been involved in a number of creative projects and collaborations including her own, original music.
Notable performances have been at Ricky Tomlinson's wedding, Manchester United’s Old Trafford for the Champion's League Final, Wayne Rooney's I8th birthday party, Charles Kennedy's birthday at London's Dorchester Hotel, the Carlton Tower Hotel with Brian Connelly, the Manchester United Players' Christmas party and Arsenal’s Martin Keown's testimonial dinner at the London Hilton.
She also regularly works as a rehearsal singer for the celebrity coaches on BBC's The Voice.
"Jennie was invited to perform at an exclusive evening for our top level executives at Manchester United. To say that she wowed the crowd is an understatement. Her music is elegant and her vocals are fantastic. I would highly recommend Jennie Sawdon to anyone looking for a top level musician. We have more events this year and I have no doubt who I will be trying to book. Thanks and good luck, your fans at Manchester United."
