just went onto your website to try and add my comments but released I don't have permission to, so I thought the best way to say a huge thank you was through email.

I cannot thank you enough for playing at our wedding, the amount of people who have shared how much they enjoyed you playing and asked who you are and where you are from is incredible. You played everything we wanted and much much more. I also need to say a huge thank you for your flexibility as my morning did not exactly go as planned, but the fact that you were playing meant that no one could have minded there hour wait. Thank you so much, you were fabulous. You have greatly added to our special memories of the day.

Lynsey & Martin,
The Maynard, Grindleford, Derbyshire, 26.10.13
I just wanted to thank you for a superb bit of entertainment on Saturday. The whole family enjoyed it immensely to the point you even had them all singing. It's always great to listen to such an accomplished professional. You've obviously worked very hard at it; well done. Between yourself and Jordan the bride and groom had little to do to keep their guests enthralled, and our sister visiting from the States particularly so.

Keep up the entertaining; the job you do and pleasure you give is very special.

Shrigley Hall Hotel, 20.04.13
We wanted to say an enormous "THANK YOU" from the bottom of our hearts for the beautiful music that was so much enjoyed and appreciated by all our guests. You were superb and your music added so much to our joyous day. We feel that the applause you received at the end clearly reflected how much everyone had loved your performance but this was added to by so many comments from people who had simply enjoyed listening to your range of music.
 
On an occasion when we experienced a touch of heaven it was only fitting that we had an angel playing in the background.
 
The wedding day was probably the happiest day ever in our families' lives so on behalf of us all, and all our friends, can we simply send you a very warm, sincere and heart-felt thank you for a most magnificent musical feast.
 
We are your friends always and look forward to the next occasion we can share such happy moments.

Hayleyanne & David

Dear Claire....how can we thank you enough!? Your contribution to our wedding day was unforgettable. All of our guests were amazed by the 'Violinist' you were truly inspirational! The music throughout the day was exceptional..we could not have wished for more, especially the Irish twist during the wedding breakfast!
Thank you from both myself & David for travelling to Gisborough Hall for our special day, it meant so much! We are pleased to have found you and of course no problem recommending you to others for their future celebrations!
With love and best wishes Mr & Mrs Krushell x x x x

Simon & Nicola Jones

Married at Simonstone Hall, Hawes, N. Yorkshire 01.11.12
 
We hired Claire after looking at her website. Upon initially enquiring with her re our wedding at Simonstone hall in North Yorkshire she responded the same day with her repertoire which Is very impressive. On the day of the wedding she arrived at the venue with plenty of time to spare. She played the pieces exactly as we asked before and during the ceremony and added more than a touch of class and a fantastic atmosphere, even the registrar was impressed. Our guests were commenting about Claire from the start and were also clearly very impressed.
 
After the ceremony she played a mix of more modern and upbeat pieces as we requested and despite being there in the background she was met with applause many times. She then played the duelling violins track which I have to say was amazing. So much so that she was requested to play it again by guests. She even posed In some of our wedding photos which we cannot wait to see. Overall a highly recommended performance that helped to make our day perfect. Thank you Claire.

My wife and I would love to thank you profusely for playing so skilfully and movingly at our recent wedding. All who attended were at pains to compliment us about the beauty and quality of your craft, as well as the elegance and gravity of your performance.

Joanne was incredibly moved by the Mozart at the beginning of the ceremony and would like me to thank you for providing such a wonderful soundtrack to her special moment.

You fully deserved the outbursts of spontaneous applause that punctuated every interlude during the wedding breakfast. You were a tireless worker, a peerless performer and a kind, polite presence.
