Hi Morag This is just a short email to thank you immensely for the absolutely superb performance at Ratho Parish Church on Saturday. The success of a wedding relies so much on background music and “The Quartet” certainly excelled in that regard. Personally, Gill and I missed out somewhat as our arrival, by dint of normal bride and father custom and practice, occurred in the late stages of your performance. However, our guests spoke very highly indeed of your presence and delivery and raved of how the quality enhanced a momentous occasion. Morag, once again, many thanks for helping to make Gill and Jamie’s wedding such a huge success. Best wishes for the continuing success of “The Quartet” and the enjoyment that goes with it. Kind Regards. Kenny Sword (Father of the Bride)
