Isabella played at our wedding and we couldn’t recommend her enough if we tried. She is exceptionally talented and the music was beautiful. She fitted in perfectly with our day and was very accommodating of our requests. Professional yet very friendly and a lovely person. We are so glad that we chose her to be part of our day. We received so many wonderful comments from our guests, who all loved listening to Isabella play. From myself and Ziggy, thank you so much.

Isabella was such a pleasure to work with; really intuitively adapting to our (quite specific) musical requirements. Improvised beautifully, very creative. And a lovely person to go with it. Would love to work with you again.

I just wanted to thank you again for your delightful playing at Harriet & Jack’s wedding last Saturday at Fletching Church. In particular, you accepted our request to play ‘Farewell to Stromness’, not on your normal repertoire, recorded your mother for the piano backing track, and moreover within an hour or so of the service, adapted the piece, again at our request. You played this beautifully for the entrance of the bride; it was very moving. Thank you again from us all.
