Wedding musician

We would highly recommend Ben. He played three pieces of music for our wedding ceremony. He was incredibly helpful beforehand when choosing the music - he understood what we wanted, made suggestions (including sending us links and playing us pieces in person) and listened to our suggestions. We were very happy with the final mix of things we'd chosen and his suggestions. Communication was good and he arrived early on the day to set up so we didn't have to worry about anything. The music itself was beautiful. I don't think there was a dry eye in the house! Friendly, professional and very talented.

A wonderful violin player

Ben was great, from the time he first spent understanding what we wanted, right through to playing on to keep the dancing folks happy. He was well organised, communicated really clearly, and took time to understand what we really wanted. His violin playing was great and really varied - from classical right through to dance floor fillers. Would highly recommend :-)
