We just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you so much for the music on our wedding night - 2nd August at Trevenna. Everyone loved the band and the music was just perfect for the atmosphere we wanted to create on our wedding day. You played our first dance song amazingly and it was so sweet of you to dedicate a Norah Jones song to me. Thank you so much again.
