You were absolutely fantastic and made the day, everyone commented on how amazing you were.

I just wanted to say a BIG thankyou for playing your beautiful music at our wedding in Dyffryn. It was lovely, everybody has been commenting on how nice it was. I have watched the DVD back and it was gorgeous!

I wasn't here when the bride and groom arrived in the hotel garden but I heard that Pachelbel's Canon was timed precisely - and brought tears to the brides' eyes - as was intended.
