" Just wanted to send a brief email to say Thank You! The quartet was truly fantastic and made the wedding so special. Rae & Rob were so pleased and happy with everything, especially the overwhelming response to your professionalism...and fabulous playing of course! The song list also got people talking/dancing; especially as the guests were amazed to hear songs like 'Fight for this Love' and 'Don't Stop Believin' played in such a fabulous way- so thank you, your arrangements were truly magnificent. Hopefully I will get to work with you again in the future, be it another family wedding or through work. I'm not sure how many times I can possibly fit thank you into one email but would just like to stress how fabulous the quartet were! "

" This is just quick note to thank you for such a fantastic performance at our afternoon tea party yesterday. It really made the event. We had numerous compliments from the guests throughout the day/evening (approx 190 in total!) Your style really worked well at the venue and the nature of the event - everyone appreciated your music whilst at the same time being able to talk to each other. You are all genuine nice people and it really shows through your performance. It looked as though you were all really enjoying yourselves and the guests noticed it too. You selected the right tone of music at the right times and managed to organise yourselves without me which is great!! True professionals. I will certainly continue to recommend your services to any bride, corporate event planner and friend in the future! Thank you all so much for such a great performance – you did us proud! "

" We just wanted to say thank you so much for being a part of our wedding day at Brympton House. We were so pleased that you were able to make it. Everyone agreed that you were brilliant and it certainly made our day that little bit more special. It was amazing to walk out on the sunny terrace and hear you play, and it really made the whole experience perfect. Everything from the original enquiry to the performance was so easy and you were so professional from the start. Thanks again for making our day that little bit more special. I have already passed your details on to a friend of ours who is getting married in 2012 and who had never thought of a string quartet before hearing you play. We would recommend you to anyone "

" I just wanted to say a massive "Thank You" to you and your colleagues in the quartet for an absolutely fantastic start to what was a joyous and extremely memorable (and emotional!) day. Whilst the whole day was a great occasion everyone made a specific mention of the quartet and how good it was and that it did set the tone for the rest of the day. I complimented you all during my father of the bride speech and everyone burst into spontaneous applause and cheering. You were (and are) a class act and I loved your sense of humour opening with Duffy quickly followed by The Verve and The Drugs Don't Work! My personal favourite was Elbow - I was able to lose myself for a few minutes in your wonderful rendition. Thanks again. "
