    Polly and Ian were simply a perfect part of the day. So many people have commented on your sound being a beautiful compliment to the surroundings and all that was going on from before Meg arrived, through the ceremony and during the reception. I have to say that my daughter and then Meg walking in as you played Caravan of Love broke me in a very good way! You have both also made a fan for life in the form of our nephew William who hasn’t stopped talking about how good you were!
