Martyn and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for your beautiful playing on Saturday. We genuinely couldn't have asked for anything more. The sound of the strings in that room was perfection. Many of our guests also commented on how wonderful you were. Thank you again!

Saffron Strings duo played beautifully at our outdoor ceremony and reception in August for our wedding! We picked a film soundtrack theme which they embraced with open arms and learnt a few new songs for us! They suggested some wonderful songs for my entrance and our exit as newly weds, and were always quick to reply. Would definitely recommend!
