Event: Wedding
Location: Birmingham
5/5

Cameron and I wanted to thank you so much for the music you played at our wedding - you were absolutely phenomenal and so many people talked fondly of you afterwards. An additional thanks is for taking the time to learn the Coldplay tune for when Cameron arrived - it meant the world to both of us. Thank you for being a huge element to what was a day to be cherished forever in our lives. We will gladly recommend you to friends and family.
