Lizzy was an amazing harpist. She was lovely to have in attendance and she contributed to us both having the most wonderful wedding day. Lizzy was kind enough to play again (by request) our walking in music, signing of the register and walking out music during our meal. Excellent service. Thank you.
Thank you once again for entertaining us so royally last evening. You really helped make an excellent evening even more memorable!
