Highly talented Cellist with a great repertioire. A joy to commuicate with. We couldn't have asked for more. Excellent performance and presentation, both before our ceremony and during. Obviously very experienced in weddings and ceremony processes. Professional communication with Registrars made for a seamless and classy performance throughout. Exceeded our expectations all round. Understood the ambience we were looking for and delivered to a very high standard. Highly recommend.
