The best addition to our drinks section at our wedding

5 stars - Andy Cherry are Highly Recommended
booked Andy Cherry for their Wedding in West Sussex September 2021

“Andy did a fantastic job is just setting up and getting on with the job at hand. I had many wedding guests come up to me (the Bride) and tell me how much they loved Andy's versions of their favourite songs or movie titles. Andy was a really lovely guy and was super professional when communicating with him before the wedding.”


Outstanding artist, highly recommended

5 stars - Andy Cherry are Highly Recommended
booked Andy Cherry for their Wedding in Essex August 2021

“Andy is a great talented musician who bought a warm inviting atmosphere to our guests throughout our wedding ceremony and reception drinks. Initial introductions were friendly and communication was very easy. He even managed to learn two specific new songs to his repertoire for us. All of our guest complimented him and my only regret was i wish i could of listened to his full set rather than be pulled in every direction for photographs. 100% highly recommend you won't be disappointed.”


A wonderful musician and lovely guy

5 stars - Andy Cherry are Highly Recommended
booked Andy Cherry for their Wedding in Surrey August 2021

“Andy stepped in to play at our wedding at short notice after our previous musician was unable to make our new date. He was really easy to communicate with and kindly agreed to learn a particular song for us for our ceremony. On the day, Andy created a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and was really friendly with the guests. We could not have asked for anything more!”


A fantastic addition to our wedding with the perfect vibe

5 stars - Andy Cherry are Highly Recommended
booked Andy Cherry for their Wedding in London June 2021

“Andy was really great at our wedding, the music was really lovely and contributed to the atmosphere we were looking for, laid back but still romantic. Andy was always engaged and helpful before and during the wedding and willing to give us his advice on what would work and what wouldn't. A particular highlight was when he let my wife's nephew take over the guitar for a bit. I would definitely recommend him!”
