"Great repertoire and really gets the party started - not what you would expect from a violinist!" 

Lizzie played at our wedding in May 2019 and everyone loved her as she played after the ceremony too. Guests were commenting about the songs she played and we had a little dance on the lawn! Would very highly recommend. Thank you Lizzie

Lizzie learns all of her songs so no sheet music is required and it all just flows beautifully. We received so many positive comments and I'm just sorry that we never got a chance to really have a chat with you or thank you on the day as it just whizzed by!

Thank you so very much for being an integral part of our wedding and hopefully we'll see you next year!

Lizzie has achieved a rating of 5*s in 45/45 reviews on Facebook 

One of the first things we decided, before the venue, before the dress and before the guest list was that we were going to book Lizzie!
She fully met our expectations, she was wonderful, professional and made me teary when she started playing the entrance song.
Lizzie's large range of music including English and Indian worked perfectly for our wedding. 
Would highly recommend and hope to hear her play again

Thankyou so much for Sunday Lizzie, you were absolutely fantastic! Every guest paid you endless compliments. You totally took over that dance floor solo and made a huge impact in setting the tone for the night! Have had requests for your details from some of our guests so I hope to get to see you at another event soon! (Rim, April 2018)

Lizzie, the first time we heard you play we were mesmerised... All our guests were moved (some to tears) listening to you play whilst everyone was being seated in the church. The tracks you played whilst we signed the register were amazing. It was one of the best decisions we made and we can't thank you enough....xx

Would highly recommend Lizzie for weddings after having had the pleasure of her play at our wedding this August. Great communication before hand, great array of song choices to chose from and beautifully played on the day. This music was an excellent extra touch to our venue and ceremony, additionally was lovely entertainment for my groom and the guests while waiting for me to arrive.... late! Guests also commented on the variety of songs played and how beautifully Lizzie played them. I didn’t get to speak to you much on the day Lizzie so I will take this opportunity to say a massive thank you, and for continuing to play while I was running late! Thanks again ☺️

Lizzie was the first person I booked when we got engaged as I always pictured walking down the aisle to a certain piece of music by a violinist. I am so glad that I found Lizzie. She performed for our ceremony and drinks reception in May 2019. She was absolutely amazing on the day and a pleasure to communicate with. Lizzie went above and beyond to ensure my bridal entrance music was what I had always wanted and more - I will never forget the feeling of walking down the aisle to Lizzie playing!! Lizzie also learnt some music for myself and my husband and put so much effort into this for us. We are so grateful Lizzie, thank you so much! You will not regret your decision in booking Lizzie! xxx

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for yesterday, at my brothers post wedding lunch event; I know it was a bit chaotic for you to get to the venue and my event went completely out of sync and plan but your performance was nothing short of amazing and you were lovely and professional throughout. I can’t compliment you enough on how amazing your playing of the violin was. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a Bollywood violinist!

I had Lizzie to play in the church and at the reception. Everyone loved listening to her and made it so different rather than just having back ground music. Highly recommend.

We met Lizzie at a wedding fayre and after hearing her play, we were adamant we wanted her to play at our wedding. Lizzie played during our church ceremony and reception drinks. All our guests commented on how beautiful her music was and how her presence added that "little extra" to making the day so perfect. We can't thank you enought for being a part of our special day

Lizzie played for our wedding ceremony and drinks reception last week and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough! Everyone said how beautiful her music was, and personally I will forever remember the feeling I had as she played my chosen song (Can’t help falling in love) so wonderfully as I walked down the aisle. Her song selections during the drinks were perfect and added a real elegance to the whole day!
Thank you so much Lizzie! Xx

Lizzie performed at our civil ceremony at Quorn Grange Hotel yesterday. From first contact to the day of the wedding she has been a pleasure to deal with. 

For the day itself my wife and I gave Lizzie a list of both English and Bollywood songs to perform. She expertly mixed these together during our drinks reception and I found it amazing that she could perform all of these songs from memory. 

The songs that we requested for our ceremony were played so elegantly and complemented the occasion beautifully. Lizzie uses the ‘karaoke’ version of the music which she then plays over. This I found was a perfect blend and added an air of sophistication to the wedding. 

She was dressed perfectly for the day and offers the option of English or Indian wear. She also arrived promptly for the time agreed. 

Many thanks and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to my friends and family. 

I just wish that we had had the time to sit and appreciate the music for longer! (

We booked Lizzie to perform for our wedding ceremony/drinks reception a few weeks ago and did not regret it! She was amazing. From letting us select the songs we wanted, to the finer details about the day...nothing was too much!
So many guests have commented on how great you were and I’ve passed your name on to a few friends already. 
I hope to meet you again in the future! Thanks �

Dear Lizzie, thank you so much for playing at our wedding. I loved having you play me down the aisle, as well as bringing my own great grandfather’s composition (for solo violin) to life. This was such a special part of our wedding and the only time that many of my own family had heard this piece played! Thanks again... Sarah 

 

Dear Lizzie & John, A rather belated thank you, but still very sincere, for your wonderful concert at our group on Tuesday. I have heard nothing but praise for you performance, and I was most moved by the programme you presented. I have never felt like that before. Folk have told me to ask you back again, so hopefully we can agree on a date later this year… Nigel (July 14) Salvation Army Wigston

Dear Lizzie 

I wanted to say thank you so much for playing at my wedding in October 2017. 

The atmosphere you created during my wedding was amazing and extra special. The music you played captured everyone. Your talent is so unique and I am so honoured that you played at my wedding. 
Family and friends were all so impressed by your knowledge of Bollywood songs alongside many other songs you played on mine and my husbands special day. 
I'm so glad I chose you to play the music for my ceremony- the room was lit up by your music. 
I will never forget your talent, professionalism and kindness. Also to have a chat with you afterwards was so lovely.

Hello Lizzie. 
Thank you for playing at my nephew's wedding on Sat 18th Feb. I spoke to you and said how beautiful you played. Lizzie was absolutely angelic, watching her play the violin was mesmerising. Her playing complemented the wedding music beautifully and brought about a different atmosphere than just having a DJ. Thank you.

We are so pleased that we asked you to play at our wedding in March as guests were arriving at our reception. You are an outstanding musician who gladly let us put together a song list to accommodate what we would like. Our guests commented on how brilliantly you played and what a warm and magical atmosphere you created through your music. Thank you so much for helping to make our day so special and we would undoubtedly recommend you to others.

I recently booked Lizzie, to play  violin, at my wedding at the Leicester Racecourse. I heard Lizzie play at the Walkers Stadium and was immediately entranced.

Lizzie is highly professional, she was on time and even matched her gown to the theme of the wedding. Lizzies set list was enchanting and fitted the mood perfectly. Lizzies repertoire covered wide ranging genres and my 150 guests  applauded her after each piece, high praise indeed. Lizzie took time to go through her proposed set with me well before the event from Stevie Wonder to Green Day she was pitch perfect. My wife and I are continually being complimented on our choice of violinist.   

I have no hesitation in recommending Lizzie for your event. I am unable to praise her more highly. I know a succession of guests asked for her details demonstrating how impressed they were with her playing. Lizzie thank you for making our day extra special you are marvellous !

Hi Lizzie, we really loved your violin playing and your versatility is really impressive. I was actually wondering if I could discuss your availability for two events… Amita

 

Lizzie, Thank you so much. It was all just so wonderful to listen to...the effect of those opening bars on leaving was enough to stir my soul and make the day so memorable. There were nothing but positive comments from everyone so feel very proud of a job well done. The personal personal touches we added, of which your performances were a huge part, made the day really special and the whole family feel that we “did Dad Proud”. I hope not to be planning any more funerals in the future but you will definitely be my goto girl for upcoming violinist needs!... Paul

 

Hey Lizzie thanks so much for playing at our wedding. I loved your playing of Adele in the signing of the register - one of my highlights of the day! Rosie

Dear Lizzie, thank you so much for playing at our wedding. It was so special and meant such a lot to us. It added a really beautiful element to our ceremony and many of our guests commented on what a lovely treat it was to listen to you as we signed the registers! Anne
