Talented guitarist with a fab repertoire!

5 stars - Andy Cherry are Highly Recommended booked for their Wedding in Surrey August 2019

“Andy played at our wedding ceremony and drinks reception on 2nd August 2019 and was superb! His playing was beautiful and his rendition of A Thousand Years which he played for my entrance was exactly as I had pictured it. He arrived and set up on time and was genuinely lovey guy. Lots of the guests remarked on how good he was an some noticed his more unusual repertoire and said how good it was to hear something a bit different from what you’d expect! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Andy.”

Andy really helped to give our wedding a lovely relaxed vibe

5 stars - Andy Cherry are Highly Recommended booked for their Wedding in Essex July 2018

“Andy played as our guests were arriving, during our ceremony and while our guests were having drinks in the vineyard after. Andy was brilliant and very talented, we had so many comments and compliments about him from our guests. We were aiming for a very relaxed vibe for our wedding and Andy really helped to make it just that. We loved our ceremony music and with it being an outdoor ceremony in the sunshine, it really complimented our wedding. It's also worth mentioning that it was the hottest day of the year during an insane heatwave! Andy did an amazing job and we would definitely recommend him.”
