    Very impressed!

    Dear Tom, just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for singing at our Wedding on 18th March at Hedsor House. You certainly know how to belt out a tune or two! Several friends are musicians and they were all very impressed!

    Tom Ryder Weddings's reply:

    Thanks Paul, you chose a stunning venue and it was a very special day! Wishing you all the best, Tom :)

    We knew we had to have him at our wedding

    From the moment my wife and I heard Tom perform, we knew we had to have him at our wedding. He has such a unique voice and is a very accomplished guitarist. The combination of the two is very special indeed. No song is unplayable for Tom and he has the talent to make a well-known song his own. We had Tom play during our wedding breakfast and the amount of guests who told us how amazing he was, was astounding! If we could give anyone advice on how to make their wedding that extra bit special, I’d definitely advise having Tom perform.

    Tom Ryder Weddings's reply:

    Thank you for the review and kind words! It was an honour to perform for you on your big day :) all the best! Tom

    The whole process was faultless!

    Thank you so much for performing at our wedding - you were absolutely brilliant! You really got the crowd involved, and we especially loved it when you sang ‘That's Amore’! As soon as we saw you at the Down Hall open day, we knew we wanted you to be a part of our special day, and the whole process was faultless! We would 100% recommend you to everyone!

    Tom Ryder Weddings's reply:

    Hi Olivia, thanks for this, much appreciated. It was a pleasure to play for you at Down Hall. All the best, Tom

    Tom was fantastic

    We came across Tom's website and loved his music and extensive repertoire! Our wedding was in Italy and we knew it was a long shot but contacted Tom to see if he would be willing to travel over to play and we're so grateful he said yes. Tom was fantastic, he was speedy at replying to messages, relaxed about travelling long distances in very hot weather (sorry!), and his music made the wedding so much better than we could have imagined. He played a beautiful version of a song we had chosen for me to walk down the aisle to and then played throughout the drinks reception. Everyone who came mentioned how much they enjoyed his playing and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him!

    Tom Ryder Weddings's reply:

    Thanks for the review Jess. Playing for you at Como was truly one of the highlights of my wedding singing career! All the best :) Tom

    Thank you for making our wedding music so special

    As soon as I heard Tom play at the Five Lakes wedding show I knew that I wanted him to play at my wedding. My husband and I listened to some of his tracks online and loved the style of music which we knew would suit us really well. Communication with Tom was brilliant and he did everything to make sure the music on our day was perfect. My guests commented on the live music during the ceremony and canapés and wished that they could have listened to more! Thank you for making our wedding music so special

    Tom Ryder Weddings's reply:

    Hi Laura, thanks for writing this review. I'm so pleased everything went smoothly for you. All the best! Tom
