Hello, thank you for your superb performance on Saturday at Beaulieu. You kept people on the dance floor all night long! Excellent choice of music played and great vocals. We couldn't have chosen a better band! We had a perfect wedding day. Thank you so much for your contribution. It was also very easy to communicate with Warble and with Nick. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to talk to the band, although my daughter chatted with the singer. I hope that you were well looked after by the Beaulieu team. We would certainly recommend you! Many thanks, Ariadne & Brendan

Brilliant in every respect! Utterly professional and really got the party started. Worked around the fact we were running late and were very flexible and friendly. Awesome singing, amazing set, learnt a new song for our first dance and there's been loads of feedback from our wedding guests about how fantastic you were. Thank you very much indeed for putting the cherry on the icing on the cake of our lovely wedding day. Couldn't recommend you highly enough!

They were great and really contributed to the success of the day. Comments from family and friends were truly positive with a number of guests wondering how we had come about them. Really want to thank the Poptones for making our wedding truly memorable. Given that we also had two bands (the other italian), they were very accommodating and worked well with each other.
