Testimonials

We wanted to say a huge thank you for making our day extra special you were absolutely fantastic and we had so many comments admiring your playing and song selection. I wanted to say an extra special thank you for learning songs especially for the wedding. I thought that Let Her Go by Passenger was incredible and had the hairs on the back of my neck standing on end. If thee is anything we can do with regards to reviews, testimonials then please don’t hesitate to contact me.

I am so glad many people hear you play. I used to not like the saxophone! Then I heard you.

Thank you for playing at my daughter Rebecca and Carl’s wedding on 20th July. So many guests said how much they loved it. It was perfect having you play for the drinks reception and wedding breakfast. Thank goodness we saw you at the Milton Abbey wedding fair!

Just a little note to say thank you for helping to make our wedding day so special. We are very pleased you were there and lots of guests commented on how much they enjoyed you being there - you certainly enhanced the ‘ambiance’ on what was pretty much a perfect day for us.

MELANIE & TEAM
BELLISSIMO WEDDINGS
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding at Parley Manor. You helped make our day unique and personal. We feel that you did far more than you were paid to do, with the rehearsals and learning new songs to accommodate our wish that Michelle’s dad would be able to sing at our wedding. We had the best day of our lives and you helped make it the special day we hoped for. We will definitely recommend you – you play so well Mark.

My wife and I got married at Highcliffe in June and was pleased to have Mark part of our day. Mark was fantastic from the start, funnily enough we met him at the Highcliffe wedding fair. He played a great selection of songs on guest arrival. My wife walking up the aisle and for the guests during after ceremony drinks. Lots of great comments and I must say very relaxing when your nerves are high! Definitely recommended!

As soon as I walked in the room you’re playing gave me goose bumps, I love your velvety smooth sound, that's some talent you've got.

Hi Thanks to Adam and Marta from Picnic Park Deli for asking me to play as part of the Westover Style Weekend today. I set up on a mini stage near to Picnic Park Deli and even appeared on a large screen behind me videoed by the sound man. Very posh! Thanks for the great comments and even ran out of cd’s. Angie videoed me playing Everything Must Change. Looking forward to playing again at Picnic Park Deli on 15 June from 12 to 3pm. Mark x
