    Thank you so much for the beautiful music both at the church and back at home. Anna loved the Lion King and Jurassic Park pieces and was really surprised and thrilled. It was lovely to meet you eventually. We had a wonderful day and Anna & Pete loved every minute of it.

  • Gaynor

    We would like to say a huge thank you for providing the music for our wedding ceremony and the drinks reception. The songs played on the harp complimented the ceremony beautifully and everyone commented that the sound of the harp was unique and perfectly suited to the occasion. You were amazing and we couldn’t have wished for a nicer more talented musician to play at our wedding.
