The Swanlock duo were amazing for our wedding reception. The first set was perfect for guests to relax and enjoy as background music, then the party really started with the second set. They took our request for our first dance and did an amazing job! Thanks guys for being the perfect addition to our special day!

The Swanlock duo were amazing and really made the whole day. We had a few hiccups sorting out our wedding and had to do some last minute re-planning but Larissa was brilliant and really willing to adapt - given how stressful wedding planning can be this was worth its weight in gold. We were so pleased we could make something work and it really did make the difference. Larissa is a hugely talented singer who has a massive set list and the vocal skills to match. We and so many of our guests felt having them there really made the whole wedding party pop and get people in the right groove. 100% recommend! Matt & Andy

The Swanlock duo were amazing. I could not fault their passion on the stage, their performance standard and quality they were brilliant and OMG Larissa can sing she was exactly what we wanted, very impressive. They were extremely accommodating of our guests using the microphone for speeches and the kids absolutely loved them. At one point they had them all up stage singing an dancing. The song we picked for the first dance was executed flawlessly
