Eleanor Shute - Violinist - Manchester, North West England Event Location: Halifax Event Type: Vow renewal ceremony 4th August 2019
We booked Eleanor for our wedding ceremony and we are very happy we made that decision! Even before the day Eleanor was very accommodating, agreeing to acquire safety certificates for her electrical equipment (which our venue required). On the day itself, Eleanor arrived in good time and performed beautifully! I would heartily recommend her to anyone planning a wedding.

Eleanor played for a production of ours recently, and is a first-rate musician. It is the first time - and I hope not the last - that I have heard her perform. She is an outstanding violinist who plays magnificently and with confidence. Her skill and excellence brings unequivocal pleasure when listening to her exceptional performance. I would highly recommend her. Her professionalism, talent, and prowess are incomparable. And what a lovely person on top of all that!
