Jon & Lucia played at our wedding in Shepperton in September and they were absolutely wonderful! We asked them to play a few specific songs (one which required extra time to learn) and it was brilliant. They both went above and beyond our expectations and communication before was easy. Everyone absolutely loved their music and it made our day extra special having them there! Their fee is very reasonable for the amount of hard work and hours they put in. I would not hesitate to recommend them for your special day. THANK YOU!!
