"When we were planning our wedding we of course wanted to make the day as memorable and beautiful as possible. We were searching for ideas for our wedding whilst in Leeds City Centre one day and heard Kate's music down the street. We ventured down to see her playing, and we both commented on how wonderful it would be to have her play at our ceremony. We approached Kate who was really friendly and kept in communication with us up to the big day. Kate helped us to pick the music we wanted, sending us samples of suggested tracks, and finding backing music for ones we requested. On the day of the wedding Kate didn�t disappoint, everyone commented on how wonderful her music was and the violin added a real touch of class to our day. Kate was on time, immaculately dressed and played wonderfully. We'd really recommend Kate for whatever your event. We�ve since listened to Kate's new album which is great, and has a real mix of classical favorites and modern hits."
