Adam played at our wedding reception in October and he was absolutely fantastic. Lovely man, very polite and punctual. He delighted the guests with his playing and really added something special to our wedding day! Running up to the wedding Adam was very responsiveness and open to any requests that we had. His communication skills were excellent and very re-assuring for a stressed out couple! Thank you Adam!

I am so, so glad that we booked Adam to play guitar at our wedding on Saturday. He is truly talented and was a 10/10 professional throughout the entire process. Adam communicated proactively with us and our venue in the weeks before the wedding, accommodated our song requests, and delivered an incredible wow factor on the day with his sensational performances, with many of our guests commenting on how brilliant he was. Thank you, Adam!! Ben & Heidi
