Nick sang at our wedding and was absolutely amazing from start to finish. He was professional, warm and welcoming throughout and sang a wide variety of songs that reflected the atmosphere of the day perfectly. It goes without saying that he's a fantastic performer and singer and we would 100% love to book him again in the future!

Everyone commented on how good Nick was. The amount of times people asked us, ‘Where did you find this guy?!’ was unbelievable. Our first dance song was perfect and can’t wait to watch it back with Nick singing over the top of it.
