A lovely message from the groom at a wedding the quartet played for in March 2019:
" I just wanted to thank the 4 of you on behalf of J and I. We had the best day ever and your role in it was crucial. We loved listening to you and many of our friends and family commented how great you were too. Thank you again. "
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for Saturday. The music was absolutely beautiful, lots of people commented on how lovely it was and I can't wait to hear it again on our videos. You've been an absolute pleasure, would recommend you to anyone.
Thanks so much,
Mr and Mrs L (wedding at High House Farm near Matfen Cameo Duo)
Ruth and Ben played the ceremony and drinks reception at our wedding and they were fabulous! The choice of music was varied and they confirmed in advance any specific music we wanted. Booking was easy and replies to any messages were always very prompt, which is so important. On the day itself Ruth and Ben blended in with our guests and were very easy to chat to. The beautiful background music they played really did enhance the experience for ourselves and the guests. I wouldn’t hesitate in booking them again - 10/10!
