"I fell in love with Ian Britt's work the moment I heard his song, The Shape of Us. I dug a little deeper, listening to everything I could. While I'd usually describe my experience as "having the pleasure of working with" Ian Britt for my wedding last year, this time I prefer to describe it more like finding a new friend! Through his website, I asked if he would be willing to fly to the United States as a surprise for my soon-to-be husband. Ian was just as excited about the reveal as I was and he was immediately on board!
He was amazing. From the moment he got off the train to meet me, to every family member and friend of ours that he met; he was full of smiles and personality. I think he knew that was what we were looking for considering we had a small, intimate ceremony and reception. He really added to the special atmosphere to our wedding weekend.
There are few words to describe the level of talent and professionalism that Ian Britt holds. He is a truly gifted musician and the unique ways in which approaches the covers that he performs is delightful and was absolutely perfect for our wedding!"
