Damian and I spend a long time searching for the perfect piano player for our special day. We knew what we wanted and although there were a lot of very good players out there we wanted our pianist to have a real touch of class. We found Carl on the internet and after hearing his music and watching his videos we knew we had hit on someone special. We arranged a meeting and after five minutes with him, we were sure he was going to be the man for us. Needless to say, he was fantastic. His music choices were spot on and everyone commented on how he really set the atmosphere. THANK YOU CARL!
I was very happy that Jazz Gardenias were available to perform at the afternoon tea as I had assumed that they would have a full schedule based on their quality.
A full set of well known songs was enjoyed by everyone at the event .
Thank you Laura !
