Beautiful
Everyone commented on how beautiful it was and, although I thought I would miss most of it, we heard the vast majority as the girls and I were hanging out in the room next door! Thank you so much.

Elegant & graceful
Sally was as perfect as we imagined, if not better. Not only is she elegant & graceful in her playing but she is also gorgeous & her style is classic-contemporary. Her violin playing is truly beautiful & we couldn't have asked for a better musician for our ceremony on our big day!

FAQ
(5)

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Modern, elegant, fresh, unique, versatile.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Over the years of performing at weddings and events, I've built up a huge repertoire of music. This includes music from classical to pop, jazz, house and EDM, as well some more specialist Israeli and Bollywood songs. I love learning new music and keep repertoire up to date with the current pop charts.

What makes a romantic first dance?

I love Ed Sheeran's 'Thinking Out Loud' - it's a classic.

What is your number one floor-filler?

The track I love playing with DJ on the dance floor has to be Rather Be by Clean Bandit. It's such a feel-good song and the string lines are genius!

Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?

Beyonce's all-female live band - such incredible musicians!
