We can’t praise Paul enough for his fantastic singing on our magical wedding day. Great communication to the lead up to the wedding - just what every bride and groom needs with all that’s going on! And the opportunity to choose some song choices from a great variety of singers. Paul was professional throughout and set up ready to play for our drinks reception. We had a lot of guest comments on how good he was and people asking for his details for future parties/ weddings! Great background music which really created the perfect atmosphere for our drinks reception better then we imagined. Highly recommend Paul. Thank you for being a piece of our very special day.

Paul is amazing, he did the best job signing at my daughter's birthday party. Great range of tunes and played for 3 hours! He even learnt a very special song to perform for us.... I couldn't recommend Paul highly enough...just brilliant and we'd book him again without hesitation. Thank you Paul, you made the day even more special :-)
