Lucy was absolutely fantastic, she played at our wedding late December and was brilliant. Our guests had so much praise for her, and we couldn’t be any happier. All throughout the booking, Lucy was very responsive and fully professional. Her music was outstanding, and we have zero complaints. Cannot recommend Lucy enough, everything was perfect.

We could not recommend Lucy enough! Her communication is excellent and it was a completely stress free experience. Lucy is extremely talented and professional. It was a delight to have Lucy play for us during our wedding ceremony and drinks reception.

Lucy is amazing! Lucy played at our wedding. We booked Lucy to play while our guests arrived, during the ceremony and at our pre reception drinks hour (while photos were taken.) Lucy was absolutely brilliant and everyone was blown away by her talent and beautiful music. The music pieces were a mixture of classical and pop. We received so many compliments after the wedding about how extremely talented Lucy is. The sound of the violin music was very emotional and just the perfect choice. Lucy is very organised. After you have booked Lucy, she then puts everything together for you. Lucy is prompt and very professional, plus Extremely talented. Lucy plays beautifully and has so many songs in her repertoire. Lucy was extremely patient with us when we were trying to decide on what to play during the ceremony and had several suggestions that fit right in line with what we envisioned. Lucy was an absolute joy to work with and is so helpful. Lucy actually made our day very special and brought many tears to the guests eyes!! I can not speak highly enough of Lucy and if you would like the ‘Wow Factor’ at your wedding the please book Lucy. Nicola and Gert
