I can’t recommend Sophie and her musicians highly enough. Everything went according to plan and as it was a surprise for the bride and groom kept top secret! Sophie was so helpful and organised everything for me with the two venues which was a massive help and contributed to a perfect day. They performed beautifully and all the guests really enjoyed the playlist. Thank you Destiny’s Strings!!!!
