Rich was absolutely fantastic. His playing was exceptional and it suited the mood of our evening wedding reception perfectly. Many of the guests commented on how good the music was and we couldn’t be happier. He is also a lovely guy, and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him!

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding reception! Whilst Dan and I were sorry not to be able to see/spend more time listening to you (thanks to the detour we had to take back from the church), so many of our guests commented on your brilliant set which set the tone perfectly for the rest of our celebrations! We are so grateful that you were able to be part of our dream day.

Rich was absolutely fantastic! He played for our wedding ceremony and then drinks reception following and we couldn't have been happier. We spoke a couple of times before the day and Rich was extremely helpful, friendly and encouraging - which is exactly what I needed at what is a rather stressful time. I requested rather a unique song for Rich to play for me walking down the aisle and once I heard my entrance music whilst waiting to walk in I was instantly impressed and he played it absolutely beautifully. The music he played at the drinks reception was absolutely perfect and the sound quality both in our ceremony area and outside in the grounds was faultless. Rich constantly had a smile on his face and was a fantastic addition to our day, I cannot thank him enough and would definitely book him again for another event. All of our guests were extremely impressed and we have had fantastic feedback following the wedding, thank you Rich. :)

We knew we were in for a treat when we arrived at the venue and Rich was playing solo guitar to entertain our guests during the drinks reception. Absolutely incredible, a serious talent. Thanks to everyone for making our day so special.

Please could you pass on all our thanks to Rich for his performance at our wedding in October at Hoole Hall. The day was fantastic and the ceremony was made all the more special with his music with everyone commenting on how lovely it was. It was perfect!
