"Just a quick one to say thank you so much for doing an absolutely amazing job on Friday. We could hear the beautiful music from where we were having our pictures, we can't wait to see the wedding film because we will get to see you properly. Thank you so much!"

"The Carcassonne String Quartet were lovely. The couple were very happy with the music - we ended up having to have the service in the renovated 'cave' which was our plan B for rainy weather, but the acoustics were amazing! Delphine and her ladies were happy to go with the flow and I think they enjoyed their time there. I would certainly recommend them, and they were really nice people too, which helps as you can imagine. Many thanks once again."
