Dear Michael – I just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you, Rosie, Elizabeth and Aidan for your wonderful playing at Amelia & Luca’s wedding last Saturday! So many people have commented on how fantastic they thought the music was – and this was all down to you (and Amelia’s somewhat eclectic musical choices!) I think we managed to pull off the quintessentially British occasion that we were aiming for – and your contribution to this was simply the icing on the cake... Thank you again – I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone – you were brilliant!! Cate M

Client, 3 years ago

Hello all. I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you SO much for yesterday, unfortunately I didn't get a chance to come & meet you. But I was absolutely blown away by your music, as were the guests - you really made our day so special. I will be sure to recommend you to friends. And I look forward to watching the wedding video back so I can really appreciate your music. Many thanks again, Siân.
