Helena was an absolute dream come true. She was able to accommodate us at really short notice and did all the planning in secret as she was a suprise for my husband. She knew exactly the vibe we were going for and went out of her way to accommodate my song for walking down the aisle. She played beautifully and everyone commented how good she was. Im so, so glad I booked her. We keep watching the videos of her playing She really made the day even more magical and we cant thank you enough. I believe she brought tears to people's eyes when they say her playing as they arrived, and I can believe it. Thank you so much Helena, you were just wonderful, we can't wait to see you play again.

Helena played at our wedding last December and was absolutely wonderful. She was prompt, smart, polite and very professional...she showed a true understanding of the music she played and performed magnificently on the day. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending her. Many thanks.
