Mark did an absolutely amazing job at our wedding, playing during the ceremony and for our drinks reception. He was a true professional but also really friendly and all our guests commented on how good the music was. Our only regret is that we didn’t get to hear him play more as we were whisked away for photos! Thank you Mark- your playing really helped make our day perfect!!
