Testimonials

“Thank you so very much for the wonderful music you provided for Lucy and George's wedding. It was a glorious service crowned by the singing. We were very pleased with the selection of music and it has already been mentioned in several of the letters that I have received so I am grateful for the guidance that you gave us with that. Your singers were not only wonderful performers but a delightful presence and I hope they appreciated the enthusiastic congregational singing. We were thoroughly impressed with the performance that Huw managed to wrest out of the organ and the way he managed without a mirror or eyes in the back of his head.

The memory of the service will live with me for ever and I am so very glad that Lucy tracked you down.”

“We asked Roadrunner to perform at our wedding. James managed the process perfectly, discussing all matters well in advance, including band line up, first dance and their extensive playlist of ceilidh and contemporary music. On the day, well, the band provided the most impressive evening set! The dance floor was always packed and this is down to Roadrunner's engagement with their audience as well as their endless energy. I have seen many excellent wedding bands over the years, but Roadrunner are truly exceptional - a view shared by our guests!” ...continue reading

“Francesca and I have just got back from honeymoon, so please excuse the 'radio silence' since our big day. But you are the first to whom I am writing, of all those who helped us on 27th October, to say on behalf of Francesca and I the most massive 'thank you' to you, the L'Inviti Singers and Jamie for your exceptional respective performances on that very happy day. They were, quite simply, fantastic. When the choir opened up with 'I was glad', both I and, I am sure, everyone else in the Church felt our spines starting to tingle in the most delightful way; and it just kept on coming. What I had not sufficiently anticipated (so was a glorious surprise) was the extent of 'descant' that the choir would provide in the hymns – a wonderful 'bonus'. And as for the triumvirate while we signed the Register – well, although you may have had your back to the congregation, I can tell you that behind you the handkerchiefs were out in force (in a good way!); 'This Marriage' was particularly amazing (thank you for suggesting it), and, as Francesca and I looked across the Church from the side-aisle, I remarked to her that one could have heard a pin drop – everyone was locked onto those wonderful words, that equally special music, but, most importantly of all, the care and control with which you and the Singers presented it; really masterful. And, perhaps most special of all, the 'sung' version of Widor's 'Toccata' to close it all – a lovely further surprise for everyone, and another spine-tingling moment which, perfectly, kept everyone in their seats whilst our photographs (in the cold rain!) were being taken outside. I hope that Jamie, too, enjoyed opening up the organ to that final number – many guests remarked on it afterwards. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the most memorable performance – we could not be more thrilled, and we will never forget that incredible and special Service.” ...continue reading

DJ - September 2018

“Where to start to thank you?! Probably with the amazing fortitude you showed in battling with the British railway system which is rapidly becoming the most unreliable train service in the western world. Anyway, I don’t know how you did it but, thank you! I just pray that your return journey went as planned. I hardly dare ask. I can tell you that it wasn’t just the bride and the groom or even the bride’s mother’s new ‘lovely hat’! that was the talk of the wedding, but it was of course also you and your incredible singers and organist. All the help and guidance you gave us and the great talent of your choir made the service just perfect in every way – beautiful, powerful and so moving. I’m afraid a lot of people were crying (and not necessarily the ones that you would think would! – Toby said even Ian had tears in his eyes when Camilla was walking up the aisle and he must be fairly hardened by now having officiated at so many weddings) and I was particularly thrilled that so many of the young noticed how incredible you all were and commented on it. Unfortunately for me and Simon, we had to go and sign the register so were stuck in the side Chapel and could not properly hear Panis or Nella. Everybody simply raved about them. I have to apologise too for our far too early escape down the aisle. I knew we were not meant to start until the choir started singing but I think we should have waited far longer. Anyway, I gather that the ushers were completely unable to move the congregation outside until they had applauded you all. Quite right too! So, what a day it turned out to be. Your service completely set the standard for the whole of the rest of the day, which went so incredibly well and finished very noisily at 12.30! So could you please, please pass on our huge thanks and appreciation to everyone involved. We are very much looking forward to seeing you again and it will not be long I am sure because so many people said to us that they plan to book you for their daughters’ weddings! Look out! ...continue reading

“I wanted to say what a fantastic job Richard & the string quartet did at our wedding at Rugby, in August. There was a little issue with how long it took us to get down the aisle & turns out our registers weren’t ready, but Richard & the string quartet just carried on keeping the guests entertained. We have had many compliments about the quartet playing through the drinks reception as well. I also wanted to thank you for all the advice you gave Henry & I regarding picking the music for signing of the register and walking out of the church. Found you all incredibly easy to work with and very informative! ...continue reading

Marcus Wareing’s ‘Gilbert Scott’ Bar, London NW1
DJ - July 2018

“I felt I must just drop you a line to say how wonderful the music was for the wedding. I had hoped to have a chat with you and see if you could come back to the marquee for a glass of champagne etc but didn't have the opportunity. Every single person I spoke to asked about 'the choir', and several had been so moved by the wonderful voices and music. They couldn't believe it was just 8 people and it was quite beyond their expectations for Norfolk! It was such a treat and will be remembered always…something which could not have been bettered, as far as we were concerned. They created an atmosphere which lasted for the rest of the day - it was a joyous occasion. I would be so grateful if you could pass on our thanks to all who participated. I do hope they enjoyed doing it as much as we loved hearing it.” ...continue reading

Great Fosters, Surrey
Harpist / soprano - April 2018

“Just to let you know that the L’Inviti Quartet did us proud on Saturday. Several wedding guests mentioned what a lovely touch it was to have live music during the ceremony. Special thanks to the musicians for preparing and playing ‘No Woman No Cry’. The evening band also covered this classic so we were all dancing to it later. One thing that made the music really special for us was the reaction of the bride’s great grandmother who is now 93 and not in the best of health.  She responded immediately to the music and we feel that it helped her connect to the whole event.  She was able to stay for the whole day and was one of the first on the dance floor during the evening.  Such is the power of music. The quartet members were prompt, well turned out and played beautifully.  I am sorry that I did not wish them farewell but I had had a chance to thank them just before they completed their set. Once again, thank you for all your help.  I hope that the Wedding Music Company keeps going for at least another 20 years.” NB: Testimonial written by the bride’s aunt, who booked us, having had us at her wedding 20 years ago. ...continue reading

“Just a note to say thank you, our harpist was absolutely spot on and extremely accommodating when my 7 year old son took an interest in the harp and technical aspects of playing the instrument. Having the harp just added something really rather special, which in turn was commented on by so many of the guests, including my Mum. Thank you again.” ...continue reading

Wedding, Bedfordshire
Guitar/Vocalist - September 2017

“A few weeks have gone by since you conducted a small choir during my son's wedding at Queenborough. As a church bell ringer, I have rung at many weddings and know how uninspiring service music can be. Having listened to what you could produce on your website, my expectations were high - but the music at Samantha and David's wedding was just glorious! The many compliments afterwards showed how much those present enjoyed it, too. We recorded the wedding, so have also been able to listen to the Widor at the end of the service. Thank you, David for a lovely experience.” ...continue reading

We really can't wait for our wedding video and to be able to see and hear them again.” ...continue reading

“I just wanted to tell you how brilliant the harpist was at our wedding on Saturday. I didn't get a chance to thank her myself but could you pass this on to her for me please? She played beautifully, one of our guests told us they were very impressed with how she expressed the story of each song through her playing and we were blown away by how wonderful she sounded. It couldn't have been more perfect, so thank you. Also thank you for all your help in organising this, you were a real pleasure to work with.” ...continue reading

Wedding at The Barbican
Harpist - August 2017

“Apologies that it has taken so long to send our thanks to the musicians for Rebecca and James’ Wedding in June. Against what may have been adverse conditions, the Quartet did an excellent job out on the lawn during the ceremony. After the ceremony they carried on in the Long Gallery where mingling guests were able to enjoy the music. The whole day passed in the blink of an eye but everyone had the best time we could have ever hoped for. So please pass on our regards and thanks to the musicians, they did a great job.” ...continue reading
