    Had already booked another singer who had played at my sister's wedding the previous year, but after a number of issues, including she was unwilling to learn one new song as the recessional (Boys from Co Armagh which was a nod to my new husband and his family) I decided to look elsewhere. Arietta were recommended to me by a work colleague who had them at her wedding and I was so pleased with the service we received.

    From the moment I emailed them, I felt totally at ease-Cecilia was most helpful, providing an extensive set list and making suggestions for what songs suited where. She offered a number of different groups and we decided on a duet of piano guitar with male and female voices. The exit song I asked for was no problem to be learned and in fact they ended up learning 2 other new ones as a last minute request.

    We had so many lovely comments about them during the day and another colleague has gone on to have them at their wine reception a few months later. They were so professional and responded immediately to all requests.
    Have recommended them to more people so I hope they are very successful.
