Just a short note to say thank you for yours and the quartets involvement in our wedding last month. It really did add a quality to the day which we loved and our guests thought you guys were super! We also loved the rendition of A Million Dreams so thank you so much for that!
Sorry we didn’t get much of a chance to say hello on the day, but a big thank you again.
Anna & Gavin"
