Echo Strings played my wedding ceremony and were absolutely fantastic. They were more than happy to learn a few of my fave songs that weren't on their playlist and their communication before the event was always helpful, friendly and professional. On the day, they surpassed our expectations - I've had so many guests comment on how beautifully they played and one of my favourite moments of my whole wedding is walking down the aisle whilst they played 'Halo' by Beyonce. Now I just need another big event so I have an excuse to book them again! Highly, highly recommended x
