Customer review 2 for SE02.

Hi Mark,

I have already emailed her to say thank you for her performance at our daughters wedding sat 3rd May.

The day was spectacular as are most wedding days, but having her performing as we arrived, and through the wedding breakfast  it seemed to relax us and our guests. I am a florist by trade, and will not hesitate to recommend your company for your service and of course the harpist to all my brides to be, if you have any enquiries I will only be too pleased to recommend your company and of course the harpist.

Thank you once again,  Yours sincerely, One proud mum and now, mother in law

Joan Buller,  (J.B.`s Florist)

We booked the harpist to play at our wedding on 1st November 2003 through 1st Choice Entertainment.

She was very helpful and assisted us to choose suitable pieces of music for our wedding. In addition to this she also learnt to play a new piece of music especially for our wedding. On the day she was very well organized arriving at the venue and setting up in plenty of time. She played the harp beautifully during and after our wedding ceremony and many of our guests commented on how well she played. Overall we were very impressed with her and are very grateful to her for providing such a professional service.

We would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone looking for a harpist.

Regards Mark & Keryl

Dear 1st Choice

Just to let you know, that were absolutely delighted with her playing at our recent function. She played all my parents favorites, and at her own decision went slightly over time to play through the dessert course. Our thanks go out to her for adding that final sparkling touch to what was a memorable function.

Many thanks, Paul & Joanna Lane

Harpist SE02's performance at our wedding was magical. Her music provided that special touch to top off the day and her choice of music was wonderful and included a variety of Irish pieces which were well received by the Irish contingent at the wedding.

I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone for their special occasion.

Kind regards Grainne

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner.

She played at our wedding on the 20th August. She was very professional – in both her punctuality and appearance.

She played a selection of both classical and modern harp music – all of which sounded great to us.

My wife and I really enjoyed having her play at our wedding and felt it significantly added to the day. We would happily recommend her services to others.

Regards Tony & Yvonne.

Hi,

I just wanted to say how much your music was appreciated by Caroline, Cristian, Roger, myself and other guests at Caroline and Cristian’s wedding at Latimer Mews on Saturday.

Many of the guests commented on the gentle atmosphere the music created whilst we were enjoying the wedding breakfast. It provided just the right background music, whilst not being intrusive. It was a pleasure to have you play the harp for us. Thank you so much for being flexible and changing your times around to suit our arrangements. I do hope you weren’t late for your evening engagement.

If I`m asked whether I know a harpist for another occasion, I will have no hesitation in recommending you.

Thanks so much, Regards Jill.

Hi

Just wanted to say a GREAT BIG HUGE THANK YOU for such a wonderful performance at my wedding on 20th August.

The music was magical and I was transfixed – especially with “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”- that just made me stop and turn my head!!

So lovely to meet you – sorry I was so rushed- I hadn’t anticipated such a full on day. I knew I would be busy greeting people but did not realize it would be to the extent that I had no more than a few minutes for each guest. I do apologize firstly for running over and not being there for you at 4.30. I hadn’t realized the photographer would go on for sooo long. However, the time we did have you for was utterly fantastic- thank you.

I hope our paths cross again some time so I can hear some more of your wonderful music.

With very best wishes. Linda

Thank you very much and we would definitely book her again if the occasion needed.

Dear Mandy,

Just a quick note to say that harpist and caricaturist that you organized for our wedding were absolutely perfect. She was excellent and the caricaturist mingled really well with guests. If we ever have a party again we will definitely be using 1st Choice Entertainment. Your organization and recommendations were spot on and your rates extremely competitive.

Best wishes Katherine

Thank you so much for putting us in contact with her and helping us achieve the most fantastic day we could ever imagine.

Regards David

The harpist was amazing, she really made the day, she was playing when we arrived and didn’t stop until the speeches.

Please pass on my appreciation to her as it wouldn’t have been the same without her!
