" We have now returned from our honeymoon and wanted to drop The Notes big thank you for performing at our wedding. We can't thank you enough for being a part of our day, you sounded amazing. One thing that has stuck in my mind from the wedding is when we arrived at Kelmarsh you were playing 'Song Bird'. I stood in the Great Hall to listen, it sounded beautiful and will be a memory that will stay with me. Thank you "

" Thank you for making our day truly unique. From start to finish you were so accommodating; learning new songs for the older family members to changing the order on the day when things weren't going to schedule. We couldn't have asked for a nicer bunch of people! The band were fantastic and Penny's voice is by far the best we've ever heard live, people still keep commenting 2 months later as to how good you guys were. Thinking back to our first dance to Coldplay's 'Yellow' brings tears to my eyes and The Notes version was even better than the original. We wanted a relaxed tone so the acoustic music set this perfectly, the band got everyone up and dancing and Rob's DJ-ing kept everyone up to the early hours. Just incredible. Thank you so much, can't recommend highly enough! "
