Aled Day - Classical Guitarist Feedback
“I sadly didn't get to enjoy his guitar playing as much as I would have liked to due to the fact I was the bride and the last one to enter the church, but our guests did and gave lovely comments. My now husband was very fortunate to be at the church first and he played for him, until everyone else turned up, which he said was delightful. With all the excitement I missed out on hearing two of the pieces that I had chosen and loved but it was more for the congregation to listen to than me. Unfortunately I didn't get to speak to him on the day but we did acknowledge each other with a smile.
I would be very happy to recommend him to anyone else who would wish to hire a classical guitarist.

“Louise and I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the hard work that went into the music for our wedding at Langdon Court on 16 July. We feel incredibly bad that we didn't get a chance to come and introduce ourselves and say thank you in person - literally the whole period from arriving at the venue to the meal was taken up with greeting the constant stream of guests and then photography in the garden. Of course we could hear your efforts and were appreciating your incredible music from afar. We had many positive comments from our guests and you created a beautiful atmosphere - just what we were hoping for. Thank you also for moving out into the garden once the sun came out. We won't hesitate to recommend you to our friends
“I just wanted to write and say how thrilled we were with your beautiful guitar playing at Mum and Dad's surprise 40th wedding anniversary party on Saturday. You got the mood exactly right, great music, perfect volume, just perfect. Mum and Dad, in particular, were raving about you, saying you felt like one of the family, and how lovely the music was. So thank you for helping make a party into a great party! I shall be recommending you! Hope you found your way ok to the next 'do'!
“We really wanted to thank you for your beautiful playing at our wedding. You were the subject of much comment, and as the guitar is such a massive part of my life, we were just so delighted that you were a part of the day. Your style is so fluid and it was just lovely.

“I just wanted to say thankyou. I didn't have much chance to speak to you on Saturday but I wanted to say how wonderfully you played. I loved the exit music as much as the entrance to the church. I'm hoping someone will have filmed it and will send you a copy.

“We bought your guitar CDs when you played a concert at Deborah Wood's Art Room in Topsham some time ago. What a lovely evening that was. We think you are certainly on a par with John Williams and Julian Bream!'
“Hi Geoff, I'm pleased to say that our wedding was a success as was the guitarist's music. He was very well turned out, polite, friendly, punctual and able to organise himself which allowed me to stress about some of the other last minute details. His classical music really set the tone during our ceremony and was well received by everybody. I would highly recommend him to anybody looking for a similar service. Booking through your agency was a pleasurable experience. Even though we left it relatively late you were able to secure us an excellent guitarist, with the contracts signed and exchanged within a matter of days. Many thanks for all your help.

“Thank you so much for your wonderful playing yesterday. I will send you a photo of you sitting in the garden under that lovely tree when I get the pictures from the photographer. So many people commented on how much they liked your beautiful music and it created such a lovely atmosphere as the guests arrived.
