From customers:

Agency, 6 years ago

You guys were fanstastic this weekend. Thank you so much!. The backbone of our wedding and all the celebrations afterwards. So many people said how much they loved the dance!

Wedding C, 5 years ago

We had the most amazing day of our lives - everything was just perfect and that includes you and Jonny. All the recordings and videos we had seen of you did not do you justice - we were blown away by your skill and good vibes, it's just such a shame it all went so quickly for us! [The venue], you and that awesome weather were a match made in Heaven!.
