Caliban's Dream made our wedding at the Barbican Conservatory extra special. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how much they enjoyed the music and even the location staff were paying compliments!

We just wanted to say thank you for the special magic you brought to our wedding. The procession into the church was brilliant, many of the congregation commented on the enchanted atmosphere you created ­ even the vicar remarked that it was one of the most beautiful and individual weddings he had been involved in. We would like to thank you for your wonderful and evocative playing, and for your advice and patience as we made our plans.
