Isabella played so beautifully at our wedding last week. She was very accommodating with the music we wanted her to play throughout our ceremony and everything she played sounded incredible. Lots of our guests commented on how lovely it was to have a cello play so it was enjoyed by everyone! Thank you so much for adding to our very special day!

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.
