"I must apologise for this late 'Thank you' e-mail! I am afraid other business of life took over last week and it should be no reflection of your contribution to Sarah and John's day - but more to my inability to organise myself!
I think the music for the ceremony was jus right and you produced the sort of sound that really added to the ambience that Sarah wanted - as you will be aware that part of the event brought tears to my eyes.
You also helped set the scene for the reception part - the greeting of guests; whilst may think that you only contributed to background, music is still incredibly important - the relaxed atmosphere was continued through your music - Sarah didn't want jazz or R&R stuff - just music that helped folk to chat and enjoy each other's company. Several had travelled a distance but knew each other well so there needed to be a lot of 'catching up'.
Many thanks for your contribution - it was appreciated by many - most importantly by Sarah and John. We are all very happy to recommended your approach to wedding music should we be asked."
