  • Thank you so much for coming up to Aberdeen to play at our wedding. The songs you played at the ceremony were just beautiful and Harvest Moon was just amazing.

    Everyone spoke about how beautifully you played and it was a pleasure to have you there.

  • Thank you from the bottoms of our hearts for your services on our wedding day on Friday at Glenskirlie Castle…

    I’m truly touched by how perfectly you played… As I started walking down the aisle I had no idea how emotional I would be….your music was absolutely perfect….what a talent you have :)

    We are truly sorry we never got a chance to talk to you after our ceremony, it all goes so quick and when we finally got a chance to think of you it was already too late. We hope you are not offended :)

    You played the Roy Todd piece as we signed register and we absolutely loved it! Truly memorable moment.

    Thanks again.

  • We had to thank you for playing at our wedding at Huntingtower Castle. The atmosphere you created was magical and it was lovely to be able to hear you play no matter where we were in the castle and its grounds. All of our guests raved about you and thought the harp was lovely. Our only wish was that we had more time to chat with you. Thank you again and we would definitely recommend you to others.
