Dave communicated throughout the planning progress to know which songs we liked from his extensive list. He arrived in plenty of time and set up well in advance. Dave was very smartly presented and looked the part. Dave played in the gardens for a drinks reception, he was at the right volume to hear but blended into the atmosphere as well. Dave did a great job and I would use him again with no hesitation. Thanks Dave.

The music on the day was fantastic and really set the tone for our special occasion. The work Dave put in prior to the day making sure the compositions were perfect made us confident we made the right choice in choosing him. Nothing was too much trouble for Dave and we would highly recommend him to anybody looking to add a relaxing and classic tone to their day.

Thank you Dave for making our day do memorable! You took our favourite songs and made them into beautiful classical versions and we could not believe how amazing they sounded as I walked down the aisle! All our guests commented on how wonderful the ceremony was because the music made it so emotional and personal. Thanks again I would thoroughly recommend Dave to anyone.
