My husband and I would like to thank you Nerys for making our wedding day very special. The talent you have is amazing. Having you play the cello at our wedding made it very romantic and personal. Would highly recommend you to anyone who is thinking of having that extra special romantic touch to their wedding day.

Thank you so much for playing on my wedding day. Your playing (and professionalism) made such a difference to my entrance and day). you even mesmerised the children too! I would definitely recommend you playing at a wedding or any other event. I also thank you for helping with arranging my favourite songs and for your help with selecting music when I ran out of choices. Out of all the people we dealt with for our wedding arrangements you were the easiest and most helpful. Thanks again!
