Andy & Thea - Santorini Wedding
For our guardian angel Carley, who not only flew in from the UK to perform some of the most beautiful acoustic sets our guests have ever heard… But for saving our ceremony, following the speakers blowing moments before Thea walked down the aisle, by stepping in with an elegant backup plan, which involved her playing an acoustic cover of ‘A Thousand Years’ which will now forever be close to our hearts.
David and Janice - Wedding
We books Carley on the back of hearing a set from her in a local pub. She was very easy to deal with and flexible on the arrangements, an important quality when dealing with last-minute wedding preparations! Her performance set exactly the relaxed tone we were looking for and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone planning a similar event.
Naomi and Garret - Wedding
We first met Carley back last year when we heard her play live at the Bosun’s Chair in Lymington, we were so impressed that we booked Carley for our wedding! She went out of her way to travel to 3 hours to Devon to play an amazing set for our welcome drinks reception. We would highly recommend Carley, she is one talented beautiful person!
Sean - Wedding
Absolutely smashed it at our wedding in September! Has an extensive playlist to choose from and played hit after hit on our day. Had a load of compliments from the guests throughout the day.
Highly recommended for anybody looking for an acoustic artist to play at an event. Thanks again for helping to make our day special!

Getting in Touch
The reviews above are wedding bookings from 2018 onwards and each wedding Carley learnt songs for the couples and also made lots of effort to ensure the music fit the atmosphere perfectly. Carley loves playing at weddings and whether its a wedding breakfast, singing someone down the aisle or an upbeat reception, Carley really enjoys being a part of people's special day.
Carley can be contacted on this website and other sites such as Instagram and Facebook. Carley is a very versatile musician and she can perform upbeat covers or acoustic chilled songs. Carley does provide her PA and as it says in these reviews, she works hard to ensure the day is easy for couples and also that the music is great.
Rock Regeneration - Gig review
Today’s event is opened by Hampshire musician Carley Varley who is no stranger to performing live, she recently turned professional and has performed in a host of venues all over the South. Her uplifting vocals accompanied by her skilful acoustic guitar is excellent backing for captivating original numbers, which include her singles “Won’t Say Sorry” and “Honest Conflict”. With just 25 minutes on stage she certainly makes a marked impression on the small crowd gathered.
Kevan - Fullers pub
Had a surprise bonus when a group of us arrived at The New Forest Inn, Ashurst last night for Fullers 174 year if brewing celebration.....Carley was playing her music. It really made our night. Some of us had seen her at Milford on Sea festival earlier this year and she was fantastic!
Ian - Radio Host
Over a year ago I was told how brilliant Carley is. I cannot believe it toook me so long to find out for myself, she's a huge talent and the advice I got couldn't have been more accurate. I've seen her a couple of times recently and I'll be eagerly looking out for future performances. She performs many covers in style and she is without doubt a great songwriter, her originals are top quality!! If you've never seen her performing live, make sure you put that right as soon as possible. You'll love her!
