Richard and Josephine's wedding June 2022

The Martello Quartet were fabulous! Providing a great variety of music both classical and modern pieces. They serenaded us with lovely music before, during and after our ceremony and entertained our guests throughout our wedding breakfast. Guests started singing along to the music which made the day even more fun.

A friendly and professional service and an excellent choice, I would highly recommend them!
