Nuria wrote a beautiful song for Rex which she sang at the celebration of life service we held for him after his death. It was such a special and moving tribute, and beautifully encapsulated different parts of his life. It’s lovely to listen to now, more than a year after his passing.

Nuria made our wedding day so special and the process so easy. Nuria created the most memorable song which ended up being our ‘walking down the aisle’ song – and was so sentimental to my husband and I. I cannot thank Nuria enough for her beautiful music which brought such joy to the chapel and such a special mood to our ceremony.
