Louise Buchanan - Solo Violinist Feedback

This Act's Average Star Rating

Louise was amazing and really helpful getting everything sorted.

Rebecca Aubrey-Fletcher,

Thank you so much - you were fantastic and saved the day for us. A friend recommended her and we are so pleased we went with her, as when the flower girls played up walking down the aisle she was able to adapt the music to ensure that the bride still walked down to the music and finished with perfect timing. She also entertained guests during the drinks reception and so many have since commented to us how beautiful the music was.

Mark,

Thank you for saving our wedding!

Lisa G,

Thanks a lot - your playing/role was perfect and exactly what we were looking for. We are so happy with the choice we made in using you to add that perfect atmosphere we were looking for on the day.

Oliver P,
