"When you witness your daughter getting married you expect everything to be perfect, and in our case it was. What really made it special was the musical accompaniment from them in the church - it was beautiful, from the emotional arrival up the aisle to the medley played during the signing of the register, the hymns (so much better than a church organ!) and the uplifting finish - the expertly performing duet were sublime! your talented, perfect performance made the day - thank you. We will be forever grateful." Jeff and Helen, Longridge
