“As always, you did an amazing job. I can’t say that I have ever had a singer get a round of applause during the ceremony. You are great.”
Ana M. Cruz – Ana Cruz Event Planning
That long-awaited day has finally arrived…the bride is glowing in her gown with her bridesmaids gathered around… the groom is beaming with anticipation…the church is filled with friends and family and the heady scent of fresh-cut flowers…a hush falls across the room… the first clear notes of a song soar through the air, and the hopeful silence is suddenly transformed into pure magic by the sound of music.
As a classically trained vocalist and professional music consultant who specializes in wedding ceremonies, Laura works with the bride and groom—and wedding planner!—to custom-craft a one-of-a-kind soundscape for every moment of their ceremony, from the guests’ arrival to the joyous recessional as the newlyweds are showered with love and laughter.
Laura has performed for every type of ceremony imaginable: grand, traditional weddings held in Roman Catholic cathedrals with dozens of attendants in the wedding party and hundreds of guests; intimate weddings held on the beach at sunset; as well as the unconventional: an animal reserve where Laura sang to the bride and groom while aboriginal stilt walkers reined flowers down upon the mesmerized guests.
From traditional to ultramodern, ceremonies come in all shapes and sizes with a multitude of musical backdrops to choose. When you are dreaming about the perfect fairytale wedding ceremony, LAURA BRADLEY’S VOICE captures the sound of angels singing and your heart soaring. Laura’s breathtaking renditions of the Ave Maria and The Prayer are the number one requested songs for traditional Catholic ceremonies as well as non-denominational modern ceremonies alike.
Laura accompanies herself on both piano and guitar and has performed from coast to coast with orchestras, string quartets, solo harp and cello, as well as the largest pipe organ in Southern California. Her repertoire covers everything from sacred hymns to classical arrangements to chart-topping pop tunes.

"It is difficult for words to fully express the power and impact of your music. Your 'Ave Maria' brought tears to our eyes as we kneeled together and peacefully prayed at the altar. I can't tell you how much it meant having you coordinate all of the musical arrangements for the ceremony, and your comforting words 'Don't Worry About A Thing' meant more than you will ever know. Thank you so much for the gift of your voice at our wedding ceremony. It is one memory we will cherish forever." Ana and Wayne Ramosky – The Biltmore Hotel, Coral Gables
"The most memorable and miraculous moments of our ceremony was holding Dave's hands and looking into his eyes during your songs. It was then that I knew that our marriage was truly a blessing from God. Our friends and families were so moved by your voice. Everyone commented on the depth of emotion and beauty that you brought to the service. Thank you for being a part of our ceremony. Your presence and your singing made our wedding the cherished occasion that every bride dreams of!" Tamara Miller – The Breakers, Palm Beach
