Hi Nicola and Graham. Just got back from our honeymoon and wanted to thank you both once again for performing at our wedding ceremony and throughout the afternoon and early evening at The Arches in July. You were fantastic and helped make our ceremony the most important time of our lives. Every one of our 100 guests thought that you made it so special. Anyone looking at this site for a singer/duo - don’t miss the chance to to have Nicola and Graham perform for you. We got exactly what we dreamed of thanks to their hard work. With such professionalism they changed the style of our songs that we always wanted and meant so much to us. My beautiful bride walked down the aisle to The Beatles “And I Love Her”, followed during the signing of the register by Beatles “Blackbird”, a beautiful sultry melodic version of Etta James “At Last” and finished with us dancing down the aisle to Nicola’s version of Pharrell Williams “Happy “. We had tears and smiles throughout the service, all helped by Nicola and Graham’s efforts. Couldn’t have wished for better. We were very pleased. We’ll keep watching for some of your local’ish gigs Nicola, and come along to sit and enjoy the evening. Luv LES
