We would like to say a massive thank you to you for really making our ceremony and drinks reception! You were fantastic and we absolutely loved hearing you play! It was definitely what I had dreamt of hearing as I walked down the aisle. Every one of our guests commented on how lovely it was to both watch you play and to listen to you, and how it made the atmosphere of the reception.”

Hayley is extremely talented, very professional and was a delight to have at our party. She played quite beautifully and our guests were astounded when I introduced her and explained her CV; my wife’s favourite musical is Phantom of the Opera and Hayley had been playing the previous night in the West End! I would absolutely recommend Hayley’s talents to anybody looking to plan a party, wedding or any other function.”
