“Alison played at our wedding in April 2018 and did an amazing job. She plays like an angel and did not disappoint. Everyone commented on how fantastic she played and I even provided my two nieces with her contact details as they are getting married. She even learned new songs that we wanted and they all sounded amazing. Alison even travelled all the way from Bristol to Wirral to make our day special. Alison’s charges are very reasonable to the amount of time she gives you and is very flexible. We would highly recommend Alison! Thank you Alison for helping to make our day very special! We both loved the way you played for us especially my wife’s entrance song.  Blew everyone away.”

“I feel that I am very privileged to be writing this review. I chose Alison to play at my daughter’s wedding; from start to finish the process was extremely easy and Alison is so very professional. She was very helpful walking me through the music selection for me to chose. Come the wedding day there is no way I can put into words how magical it was to finally hear Alison play – she did not disappoint her gift of playing beautiful music. It was so overwhelming, every guest commented on how brilliant she was and made a special day so very precious. Alison, I cannot thank you enough and would recommend you to the moon and back – you are so talented.”
