Lauren was just brilliant. Punctual, friendly and a joy to listen to. She is extremely skilful with both acoustic and electric violin. We chose the tunes for the wedding ceremony but left the choice of songs for the drinks reception to Lauren and she played a good selection which really fitted the mood. We had comments from many of the guests saying how much they had enjoyed the music and I would be very happy to have Lauren play for us again. Thank you very much Lauren.

Lauren played at our wedding which was Disney theme and tailored the music to match our theme. Lauren also went out of her way to create our entrance and exit music that moved people to tears, her performance was exceptional. All our guests commented on how exceptional she was and I would not hesitate to use Lauren again for any occasion. Believe me, no words can describe the difference the room feels when she plays. Thank you Lauren, from the bottom of our hearts.
