Beautiful, personalised and talented!

Sue made my ceremony so special. She helped my husband to be and I to chose our special song to walk down the isle to. Nothing was too much trouble, and Sue put together the most beautiful personalised list of music for our wedding.

I would recommend Sue to all brides to be.

Guests loved the beautiful white piano

Sue played at our wedding in 2019 (fortunately before Covid!) and it was a fab addition to our special day. She made some great suggestions about the music to play and we added a couple of ideas of our own. Sue was very flexible and played her beautiful white grand piano before and after our vows and as part of our celebration lunch which followed. All the guests were wowed with our pianist and we certainly felt it was an important part of creating the magic of our day.
