Clare was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. We booked Clare for our wedding ceremony and drinks reception. She couldn't do enough for us to ensure we had the perfect wedding celebration, putting together a collection of songs which she played on the piano and saxophone that we wanted for our special day and taking the time to learn our aisle song. Clare created such a fantastic atmosphere and all the guests commented on how brilliant it was to have live music during the day. Clare is such a friendly person and we really can't thank her enough for coming along and making our Wedding day truly memorable.
