Dear Morag & Marcus, Steve and I wanted to write to say a massive thank you for the brilliant music that you provided for our wedding at The Yair on 29th June (2019). You helped to make a special day for us both even more magical than we had ever hoped. The quartet provided the perfect backdrop as our guests gathered and everyone was blown away with the two pieces that Marcus (Marcus Swietlicki Tenor) performed…..I then got to hear some of the quartet which was just beautiful…. Thank you both for your important part in creating what was a truly amazing day for us. Everything worked perfectly and there was such a feeling of love and happiness it was overwhelming. The whole event ended up far exceeding all our hopes and expectations. Thank you so very muc. Tim & Steve.
