Fiona - July 2022
"As we were having an outdoor wedding we were concerned about the logistics of the music for walking down the aisle so contacted Mark to play live music.
What a brilliant decision that was! Mark is phenomenal at playing the guitar and made the ceremony so special for us. Imagine our surprise when he played the exact song we told him we wanted something a bit like! He then entertained guests during the canapes and for the rest of the evening, we were approached so many times to tell us how brilliant Mark was and how his music really set the scene.
We couldn't recommend Mark enough, he contributed so much to our day and we'll remember the music forever."

We cannot thank Mark enough."
