"Emma played for our wedding ceremony and afterwards as we were having celebratory drinks. Leading up to the event Emma was a pleasure to deal with, we requested mainly pop songs but also some songs that were unknown to her, however she was extremely positive and happily learnt them for the wedding.
Our wedding venue was Two Woods Estate, Pulborough, West Sussex. We got married in their red woods and Emma's performance there just made the experience incredible. All of the guests commented on how amazing she was and I would recommend her to anybody.
We wanted to use suppliers and performers at our wedding that were great people who we enjoyed the company of, and Emma was the only person we didn't get to meet personally beforehand however I needn't have ever worried."

We invited Emma to take part in our Wedding celebrations, and I asked if she would be able to play my late mothers' violin for the service, as well as other areas on the day. Emma was very flexible and accommodating, which really helped keeping us at ease for the big day. Upon watching the multitude of videos and reading reviews online, we had high expectations and wow did she exceed those expectations. She was very careful and respectful of the violin, and made it sound incredible. She was a perfect fit within the service and made the whole service feel so comfortable, she had a few people to tears with the whole performance, from the meaning and people being able to hear such amazing live music for such a while, during the pandemic. After the Service, Emma was more than happy to join the roaming band, and they said she was a joy to work with.
If we have another event, I would definitely being looking at Emma's availability, as she was a fantastic violinist, so many people raved about her, we are booking to see her live at future events, as we very much enjoy her performances

We just wanted to send a note to say thank you very much for your help on Thursday. It was without a doubt the best day of our lives and we couldn't have done it without your support.
The music during the ceremony was perfect and your selection of songs for the champagne reception outside was amazing and incredibly well received by everyone.

We just wanted to say how pleased and impressed we were with Emma who performed at our daughter's wedding. She arrived on time and ready to go. She happily did a late change of her playlist to start with a song that means a lot to Ellie and Kyle. Emma looked fabulous, was very friendly, always a lovely smile, and her playing was perfect for our event. We just wanted to say how impressed and grateful we were. Thanks so much Emma.
