Estevao was fantastic for our wedding: communication beforehand was so quick and smooth, and he spoke directly to our venue to organise sound systems etc. On the day he started playing the minute our ceremony ended and entertained our guests with a fantastic mix of current songs as well as classical and others, even taking some requests. He was polite, professional, and one of my favourite parts of the day. 10/10 recommended, thank you!!

Estevao made our wedding the most special day of our lives! He turned up on time and played fantastically the whole way through. Only regret is I didn't thank him enough at the time! Would recommend him to anyway. Thank you sir-

Craig was very kind and polite and respectful from the beginning until the end. Also he offered a big plate of delicious pasta from the menu. Thank you so much to inviting me to play for your special day! All the best for you both and maybe we could catch up in the future. Cheers!

Estevão was AMAZING! Thank you so much for being part of our wedding day - I cannot recommend enough. Estevão was professional and extremely helpful in the run up to our wedding day - despite being a relatively short notice wedding, he learnt a song of our choice and provided helpful advice for song choices during different sections of the ceremony. Estevão is a hugely talented guitarist and his performances were beautiful. Many guests commented on how much they had enjoyed his performances. We could not be happier - he also took the time to check in on the day to make sure we were happy with everything. Thank you again!

Estevao was very friendly, polite and co-operative throughout the procurement process, and he performed brilliantly on the day. We couldn't ask for a better outcome, and would fully recommend him to anyone else looking for a classical guitarist who can also play some contemporary music. (10 / 10)
