Hi Mark ,

I just wanted thank you from the bottom of my heart for playing so beautifully at my wedding. You are a true talent! Somehow I managed to keep it together as you played me down the aisle but when you played as we walked into the wedding breakfast I started to choke up! You made that moment truly so special. Tom didn’t understand the benefits of having a pianist at a wedding, but after he said I was 100% right in my decision (which I knew I was the whole time)! 


Thank you for adjusting to the last minute changes as well. 

Thanks again,

Dear Mark,


We would like to thank you for the beautiful playing at our wedding last Thursday 7th April.

We were absolutely blown away with how amazing and brilliant the continuous playing was throughout the day. We had a lot of guests come to us on the day to compliment you with how brilliant your playing was and would like to pass that on. '


Thank you again for the day, and all the best,


Nicola & Matthew.

Thanks so much for yesterday. The pieces you played were lovely and just right for what turned out to be the perfect wedding. We got there in the end!

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and we hope a much better 2021!

Good morning Mark,


Thank you so much for being with us at Kitley House last Friday. Your contribution greatly added to what was a very successful celebration for us.


Everyone enjoyed hearing you play and I am just sorry that we didn’t have more time to thank you in person on the day.


I do hope that we can call on your services again at some time in the future.


Best wishes

Dear Mark


Just a quick email to thank you so much for playing at Hetty and Ben’s wedding, it was really lovely to have you playing in the garden and very special that you played during the meal which the guests thoroughly enjoyed.


Please thank your band for the excellent dance music they played – as you could see our guests loved every minute of it and were really up for a good dance.


Many thanks

Thank you so much for the wonderful music played at our wedding on 5th July at Kitley House Hotel.

It was a really lovely addition to Kitley to have the soundtrack as you wandered through the house, and I loved hearing it as I walked in after the ceremony. All the guests commented on how wonderful it was and wondered whether it was something Kitley provided as standard - haha!


Thank you again.

Dear Mark,


I just wanted to thank you again for the marvellous music you played for us at our daughter Julia's wedding at Deer Park Country Hotel on March 16th. Unfortunately I did not have an opportunity to thank you myself but would like you to know how much we enjoyed every moment at this very special occasion. It was very reassuring to know such a wonderful, professional musician was with us that day. We wish you well for the future, our grateful thanks again,

Dear Mark,

I apologise for not writing before, but watching the DVD of my daughter's wedding at the Bedruthan Steps at the end of April I am reminded of what a wonderful contribution you and your colleagues made to the success of the occasion. Your music certainly helped to create the right atmosphere both at the ceremony and at the reception afterwards. I am sorry I was not able to thank you all adequately on the day but I know (the Bride and Groom) were very pleased with your music and many of the guests also said how much they had enjoyed it.

We particularly appreciated the efforts you made to play their choice of music at the appropriate times and we all agreed that your performance enhanced everyone's enjoyment of the day. Please pass on our thanks to your colleagues.

Thank you again,

Yours sincerely,

(Mother of the Bride)

Dear Mark,


Thank you so much for playing at our wedding, the music was absolutely beautiful.

Thank you so so much for the cd, it is so wonderful to have it to keep.

Best Wishes

Hi Mark,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your wonderful piano playing last week at India & Oli's wedding. I am so sorry I did not get a chance to thank you personally on the day, but I was ushering and sorting!
You really made the event with your wonderful playing and thank you so much for continuing to play right to the very end. Everyone commented on how lovely the piano playing was.


We will certainly recommend you in the future.

Thanks again,

Hi Mark,

Thank you so much for performing for us. Many of our guests commented on how nice it was to see someone actually playing live music rather than just listening to a CD. I know one particular table was extremely happy that you were able to perform their request! I know myself and Heather were over the moon at how well you managed to just blend in without really stealing our limelight!!

Thanks again, we will definitely be recommending you to as many people as we can for their future events!

Best wishes to you

Hi Mark,

I would like to say a massive thank you for playing at mine and Christines wedding. After listening to your online sample repertoire, we were amazed at how emotional we felt. Come the big day though, the class and beauty of the music absolutely blew us away! Pachelbels Canon for the signing of the register bought tears to many peoples eyes with it being so elegant and beautiful. Everyone commented how classy it was, and how well you played it. I will have absolutely no hesitation in recommending yourself to anyone who is, (or is not for that matter) thinking of hiring a pianist for their wedding!
Once again a massive thank you for making our day even more special.

Kindest Regards,

Sean & Christine Lethaby

Hi Mark,

Sorry this is so late but I would like to say a big thank you for playing at Jean's 80th. You will be pleased to learn that we received messages from several of the guests and they all mentioned the pianist and how lovely it was.

So, thanks again.

Dear Mark,
Now that the dust has settled from our whirlwind wedding I wanted to say a BIG thank you for playing so beautifully!
Considering the fact that we had only liased very briefly by phone and a flurry of emails before the event, it was everything I wanted for the day and more…. I'm sure that the ancient grand piano presented some challenges(!) but the music was simply beautiful and really added the intended intimacy and informality to the wedding.
From walking in to Pachelbel on my Dad's arm through to Lee & I exiting to It Must Be Love by Madness really summed up our somewhat unorthodox wedding - but it fitted the bill to a "T"!
I know my family and friends loved it too. If ever I find myself in deepest Devon again - and in need of a wonderful pianist - You will be the only name on my list!

With Very Best Wishes and grateful thanks

"Thank you Mark for playing such an integral part in our wedding day. You captured the signing of the register perfectly with Le Onde by Einaudi and the upbeat For Once in My Life by Stevie Wonder for the exit of the bride and groom. I selected the jazz pieces for the post-ceremony drinks with my late father in mind and you played them so stylishly, so sensitively and so beautifully - it was as though he was there with us. We can't thank you enough Mark for making our wedding day so perfect".

Mark, the music was simply wonderful. I cannot put into words how I felt when you struck up the first few notes of was simply awesome.
I have the version on my ipod and every now and again I click it on....I just love it so much. Thank you for suggesting such a lovely piece of music for me to walk into.
Again, signing the register while listening to Le Onde was fabulous and following the ceremony, ' Ode to Joy' was absolutely perfect!

The music accompanying the meal was superb and we enjoyed every minute...I so wish we had recorded some of the pieces, but it never seems quite the same.
I lost my dear dad just 5 years ago this next week. The music was chosen with him in mind. He would have been in his element and enjoyed every minute! He was a great music lover bless him.

We simply cannot thank you enough for helping to make our day and particularly the very personal parts of the day so very special for us.
Thank you so much


Steph & Stev
