"Celeste and the Italian Riviera Swing Band were amazing and we can't thank them enough for their collaboration, professionalism and of course, incredible performance at our wedding at Villa Durazzo.

We had a trio including double bass, piano and vocals by Celeste - superb! Our guests loved the performance during the aperitif in the gardens and Celeste also sang 2 special request songs for us and customised some lyrics effortlessly.

The day was magical and definitely memories we will always treasure. Thank you again, hopefully our paths will cross again soon. "

"Wow! It is really hard to put into words how absolutely incredible Celeste and her pianist are! From personality to communication to professionalism. They both have a talent that is so adored! Myself (the bride) and the 30 people at my wedding in Positano were blown away by their performance. Celeste has the voice of an angel and I knew the moment I heard her in her video that I had to have her perform at my wedding. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making our special day that much more special! All of us want to fly you to the States to perform again!! Much love!! I would recommend them EVERY SINGLE TIME!"
