Lucy Weston - wedding reception - Essex

"Thanks to Andrew for playing so beautifully at the wedding – I’m so pleased that we booked him – much better than a harp!"
Mrs Caroline O’Reilly - wedding reception

"Thank you so very much for playing so beautifully at our wedding. Everybody commented on how well you played and at what a special atmosphere your music gave to the ceremony. I am only sorry I wasn't in the room to hear more, but I really enjoyed the pieces you played during the signing of the register and especially appreciate you taking the time to learn Here Comes The Sun. It really wouldn't have been half as nice without you there and we are so pleased that you were! I very much hope that we will have the opportunity to hire you again in the future and until then send you all best wishes and many many thanks again"
Mrs C - wedding ceremony
