Dear Tracey, My apologies for not replying sooner. We were absolutely delighted with The Essex String Quartet. I've mailed Helen directly on 15th May with our sincere thanks for making Lauren and Jason's day so special. We were able to keep the quartet a surprise for Lauren which was fantastic, she was thrilled. Jenny, the vicar, allowed The Essex String Quartet to set up at the front of the church in full view of Lauren as she arrived with her dad truly a magical moment. You were always prompt to reply to any queries. The Essex String Quartet more than lived up to our expectations and I have no hesitation in recommending them to any future customers. Many thanks for all your help over the past few months.
