I never got the chance to thank you for playing at our wedding. You were fantastic and really helped set the mood for the ceremony. I also loved listening to you whilst we got our photos taken. There were lots of comments from our guests on your unique play list,  under the sea was a favourite. I apologise for not thanking you on the day. I will be recommending you to all my friends and family. Thanks again, 
A& C, Ceremony and Reception, Western House Hotel, July 2015
Sorry for the very late message, but we've just got back from honeymoon this week and I haven't had a chance to email you until now.
I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your set at the wedding, it really made the ceremony & day very special.  We had numerous friends commenting on how lovely it was and how well you played.  Thunderstruck especially was fantastic, we were so happy you managed to do that!

Thank you so much

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. You were absolutely amazing and surpassed all expectations. Our guests all commented on how great you were... We really appreciated you taking the time to learn many of our favourites - especially Kiss the Girl!

Testimonials:

Well what can I say you guys were absolutely amazing on our wedding day!! The amount of guests that commented on your playing and who were almost crying to the Braveheart music or other pieces at some point was crazy!!

Thank you for being part of our big day and for helping it run as smoothly as it did it really couldn't have went any better....

You guys are clearly very very talented at what you do and I can't comment highly enough how good you are!!

Thanks for everything!
A&P, Ceremony and reception, Lochside House Hotel, March 11th 2016
The quartet's participation and contribution to  J and O's wedding  on Saturday was superb. We have had many, many complimentary comments  about the beautiful sound made by the group and how it created a wonderful atmosphere before,during and after the ceremony. We had friends and family from Australia, Canada, United States, the Caribbean and many more European countries plus, of course, Kilmarnock! Now the quartet's fine playing will be getting talked about,literally, world wide!

Thank you for helping to make J and O's wedding day truly memorable.
G.P, ceremony and reception,
Rowallan Castle, June 2016
I know it's a month ago since our wedding but I just wanted to say thank you from us both for playing during our ceremony and for our guests afterwards. We had lots of feedback about how good you were from our guests! I'm slightly gutted we didn't get to hear more of your playing ourselves but the photo taking ended up taking over! We would most definitely recommend you on to anyone else who might need your services - and if we ever get married again we will give you a call!
J & M C, Ceremony and reception,
Seamill Hydro Hotel, November 6th, 2015

Thank you for playing so beautifully at our wedding. Sorry we didn't get an opportunity to say thank you on the day. THe guests really enjoyed the strings and your playing brought a tear to many an eye!

J&T R. Ceremony and Reception,
Balmule House, Dunfermline, October 17th, 2015
Just a quick email to thank you for the work you all put in on Friday. The music for both the ceremony and the reception was amazing and we have had many of the guests comment on how wonderful it was. The Game of Thrones music was particularly enjoyed by several of the guests at the drinks reception! 

 

We would greatly appreciate if you could pass on our thanks to everyone involved on the day.
