Wayne played at our wedding in Tuscany, we had nothing but amazing comments about him from our guests. I would go so far as to say that he was one of the easiest suppliers we had for our Wedding nothing was too much trouble. From playing my beautiful bride down the aisle to playing alongside our DJ he was quite simply amazing! 100% recommend!

"Wayne performed 3 sets at our wedding and honestly cannot say how much he made our day!!!
He turned up, looking dapper, for the occasion!
All three sets were very different - all as good as each other.
Would recommend Wayne any day of the week! Absolute class act!"

"We hired Wayne to play for our Wedding reception drinks at the end of October and we could not have been happier. He added something special to our day and created a lovely chilled vibe, something which was important to us as we wanted a very laid back and relaxed day.
He was super helpful in the lead up to the day and really responsive to messages too. An absolute doddle to get everything organised, especially with us booking pretty close to the date.
We could not recommend him more!!"
