Paul is a very skilled and professional musician built around his passion for music. He used his amazing talents to make a personal rendition of a song we liked for our wedding. Paul listened carefully to our requirements and created the perfect masterpiece on his first edit! A piece of music we will treasure forever. During the wedding breakfast, Paul played a variety of genres and didn't miss a beat. We cannot think of anyone better to trust with this delicate musical element than Paul and wish him all the best in the future. Ian & Helen
