Hi Charlotte and Steve,
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you so very much for everything at our wedding a couple of weeks ago. We loved having Stringendo there, the music during the ceremony was so lovely – I just wish I’d been able to spend some more time on the lawn listening to you but the time really ran away! Covers In Arms were also so brilliant – I’ll send Paul an email separately too. We’re so pleased we chose to go with them, they really made the evening so much fun. If you’d like me to write any reviews please do let me know. Thanks so much once again,

Hi Steve. Felt I must just let you know, I have always wanted to have ‘a party’ that people are still talking about weeks later. Well, I have achieved that with your help. People are still asking where the band came from and saying how they made the evening. Just the right mix of involving everyone, good music and all round excellence. It made so many great memories, I keep smiling at the photos. So worth blowing my budget!! Would you please pass on an enormous thank you to the boys. Completely professional and lovely with it.
One ambition achieved – lots to go!

‘Thank you so much for arranging the music for our wedding in April at Lulworth Castle. The string trio was perfect and made our ceremony very special, unfortunately we didn’t get to hear much of them at the drinks reception as we were rushed off for photos. But all our guests informed us that they were brilliant. The 101’s were amazing! I really don’t think we could have found a better band. So many of our guests were asking where we found them, with some possibly interested in having them for their wedding next year – I have given them your number, so they may be in touch.
Please extend our thanks to the musicians and should you require a testimonial we would be happy to provide one. Kindest regards
