I’m pleased we were able to speak and thank you for yesterday, all the guests I spoke to loved the music. The bride and groom have left on honeymoon, but asked me to pass on their personal thanks for adding to their day and entertaining their family and friends.

,

I just wanted to drop you a line to say a great big THANK YOU for the wonderful music you played at our wedding . Our guests were delighted to listen to your classical and ceilidh pieces and were so impressed that you could make such a dramatic changeover from one style of music to another. Nick and I feel that your presence made a great contribution to our fantastic wedding and we are so grateful for your delightful performance on the day. You feature in quite a few of our wedding photographs so please do let us know if you would like to see any of the pictures.

Just a note to say thank you very much for the barn dance last weekend at Hunters Hall. It was absolutely fantastic and the feedback we have had from the guests was that everyone had a really good time. Many commented that this was the best wedding reception they had been to, and one lady said that she had never been to one where people were dancing from the first dance to the very last. Having traditional music in that sort of setting was exactly what we were looking for. It really could not have gone better, and it was thoroughly enjoyable. If you play regularly in the Norwich area, please let us know! My only regret is that I did not have time to speak/thank you proper ly on the night.. Many thanks again for helping make our special day that bit more special.

,

I wanted to thank you again for your fabulous performance at our wedding on Saturday. It was perfect! Thank you also for doing the lovely tracks as Sarah came in to the ceremony and as we walked out together. Unforgettable!

,

Thank you for the great music yesterday. Everyone commented on how good it was. I am sorry you had to dodge the showers and also that I was not able to say goodbye and to thank you yesterday for your great efforts.
