Mark Williams - Guitarist Feedback

... He was absolutely brilliant! Loved by us and all of our guests. The perfect addition to the day and exactly what we had hoped for. I wouldn't hesitate for a moment in booking him again and couldn't recommend him highly enough

His program was thoughtfully planned and beautifully executed.

, Bamford Concert Society

We cant praise him enough. We requested songs for the ceremony that weren't on his repetoire, asked him to set up in two different areas, none of which were any trouble. He played before and during our wedding ceremony and then afterwards during the drinks reception, not stopping until we went in for the wedding breakfast. His music was beautful and set the tone for the rest of the day, everybody commented on how lovely he sounded. He is professional, polite and unassuming, we would highly recommend him.
