On behalf of the Trustees of the Staffordshire Federation of WIs I would like to thank you for the lovely performance you gave at our Anniversary Concert on Tuesday evening. The music you chose seemed to be ?just right? for the evening and lovely to listen to. I think the applause must have told you how much our members and friends enjoyed it.

Thank you for playing at our wedding on the first. All the music was excellent and the pieces really made the ceremony special. We know when we remember our wedding we will always remember the music that went with it. If you ever need a recommendation, we will be happy to oblige!

Tom and Helen Ogden, (August, 2012)

Many thanks for a splendid performance of beautiful music.....Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their day and expressed delight at having you play.....It was a first class performance.


Thank you so much for providing such lovely music at the Allesley Hotel for Sarah and Carl's wedding. Everything about it was just right.....Thank you too for being so professional and accommodating.


We chose this guitarist through the Find a Performer website to play at our wedding on 1 May 2015. The whole process was very straightforward and stress free. He is a very talented classical guitarist. He played beautifully and adapted the music to the flow of the ceremony. He was very professional, flexible and friendly and added a lovely touch to our small wedding. Guests remarked on how wonderfully he played and I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Debbie Chettle, (May, 2015)

He was absolutely brilliant on the day. He played the two songs which were so important to us during our ceremony. It was a very hot day that day, yet he carried on playing his set outside until everyone was ready to be seated for the meal. He made it a very special atmosphere and played slot of the artists which we love. It was a real pleasure to have him play at our wedding.

Katherine Manuel, (June, 2015)

The guitarist's performance was excellent on Friday night. He was very professional and very helpful and the music was spot on to what they wanted. Thank you for your help.
