Fontane was amazing- we had so many compliments from our guests and she really was one of the highlights of the wedding! I have nothing but praise for her; she played a mix of Bollywood and contemporary music and it was beautiful. Highly recommended. Thank you again! Alia x

My event was postponed for 3 months, and Fontane was already booked for the new date. However Fontane has been extremely professional and helpful throughout the planning phase and she also recommended a replacement for the new date, who performed perfectly.

Fontane was so helpful in going through lists of possible pieces, nothing was too difficult and she took plenty of time to make sure the pieces chosen were exactly what Ann [the bride] wanted
