Wow, what amazing performers! Thanks so much guys for adding some real sparkle to our ceremony and for staying and playing for our guests during the drinks reception. You played beautifully and we got so many great compliments from guests. With the setting and the music, people said they felt like they were in Bridgerton. Sadly we'll not be needing you guys again any time soon (no way I'm planning another wedding!) but we wish you all the best and can't recommend you more highly. :)
