"Bethany was AMAZING. She played beautifully at our wedding ceremony - we had 20 children and they were all transfixed by her playing. So many of our guests commented on how lovely the cello music was. I can not recommend Beth highly enough. She was brilliant. Thank you Bethany, and Thank you Pop Top for a great service.
Joanne and Andrew"

Beth provided the music for our wedding ceremony and drinks reception at Hazel Gap Barn. We were really glad to have her as part of our big day. She was very professional and helpful from our first contact with her. She is a very talented cellist and set the tone beautifully for our wedding day. Thank you :-)

Perfect! Communication from Beth on the lead up to the wedding was brilliant. Her professionalism and attention to detail was amazing. A very skilled and talented lady who absolutely completed our ceremony. All guests gave very positive feedback throughout the time Beth was here. Thankyou x

"Thank you so much for playing for us and also allowing Georgie to sing along with you, it sounded so beautiful, it was a shame we had to sign the register at the same time as both Ben and I just wanted to sit and listen to it in entirety, it certainly was a very special moment."""

"""Once again, many thanks for yesterday - the two of you were an absolute delight and much enjoyed by our families"""
