Aelfwyn was amazing and we’re so glad that she performed at our wedding. Our day didn’t run on schedule but Aelfwyn accommodated for this which meant a lot to us. All of our guests have commented on how fantastic Aelfwyn was and said how much she added to the occasion. Aelfwyn even learned some songs especially for our wedding which weren’t previously on her track list. Aelfwyn’s communication, musical ability and general demeanour have meant that we’d definately recommend her for any occasion!
