Jeremy and Mary sang my wife and I to the alter. They brought such an intimate and beautiful atmosphere. Afterwards they sang at our reception and made us smile even more. My wife and I can truly say they really made us feel even more special on the day

Jeremy and Mary played at our summer wedding in Cornwall and brought a wonderfully personal feel to the day. They played three songs chosen by my husband during the church ceremony and then played a set at the wedding reception. Our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without them
