Thank you so much to you and your colleagues for performing at our wedding on Monday. Our guests were singing your praises and saying how beautiful the music was. I must say, what I heard sounded absolutely wonderful. I wish you all the best for the future, and we know where to come if we ever need some magical music again.

Sarahya & Zach, Sandhole Oakbarn

What can I say! I can’t thank you enough for being so amazing you helped elevate our day to another level, I’m still on magical whirlwind I don’t want to get off. I’m sorry I didn’t get to give you a big hug and thank you in person. Thank you so much.

Simon & John, Iscoyd Park

Just wanted to say thank you so much for playing on our wedding day. When I heard that first song from the bridal room it made me so emotional and made it all feel real. I’m sorry I barely got a chance to see you but I heard you and it was just perfect. Can’t thank you enough for helping to make our day so special.

Katie & Alex, Styal Lodge

These three wonderfully talented ladies played for us at our wedding in May. We were blown away by the sheer talent. It was beautiful and we will always remember having a trio at our wedding. All of the guests said how wonderful it was!! Thank you so much for making our day special with your beautiful playing xxx

We just wanted to say thank you to you and the rest of the trio you really made our wedding day. Us and our guests loved the music, we really can’t imagine what our day would have been like without you there.
The music sounded incredible during the ceremony and drinks reception and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone!  Thank you for making the whole process so seamless, you’ve been a dream to work with x
