Rachel Horton Kitchlew - Wedding Musician - Windsor, South East Event Location: The Cotswolds Event Type: Wedding 19th August 2021
We booked Rachel for our wedding in July and honestly we are so glad we did! The harpist we had originally booked cancelled at late notice. Fortunately I had come across Rachel's profile a couple of days before the wedding and messaged her; Rachel replied promptly and was so helpful and easy to communicate with. She was professional and played beautifully at our wedding breakfast ... and on what has been the hottest day of the year so far! Many of our guests still mention how they loved listening to Rachel play and instantly recognised the popular melodies! We are so grateful we booked her, Rachel added such an elegant and classy touch to our wedding, not only was the music perfect but the whole look was magical, Rachel's harp is absolutely gorgeous! Thank you so much for being part of our day! Ayesha & Bassit

Good morning Rachel Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for the beautiful music you played at my daughter’s wedding at Coworth Park last Friday. I know everyone thought it was amazing. I’m sorry I didn’t get to speak to you on the day. I trust you were looked after by the hotel staff and refreshments provided. Wishing you many years of success. If my son decides to ever get married we will definitely book you without hesitation. Once again, many thanks Kind regards Mrs Linda Pritchard
