"Hello Paul

We have finally come back from honeymoon and back in work after a fabulous wedding!

I just want to say a HUGE thankyou for making our wedding day so much fun! You were really the talking point the following day. We were over the moon with the party, and the fact that all the guests were enjoying your music so much! It was such a happy day that you put the cherry on the top of our cake! Thanks millions! Also sorry for the mix up on timings in terms of setting up! Thankyou for being so understanding and putting up with a stress bride!

Thanks again!

"Hi Paul,

Sorry it's taken me so long to e-mail you a huge thanks for the fab music at our wedding. I'd lost my voice the next day from all the singing/screaming! We've had loads of compliments and a request for your contact details.
I look forward to seeing you soon @ the Live Lounge.

Thanks again.
