Fantastic musician! A true professional and friendly person!

5 stars - Elliot Smith are Highly Recommended
booked Elliot Smith for their Wedding in North Yorkshire September 2022

“Elliot provided music for both our ceremony and drinks reception. We are a couple who love live music and we were so happy with Elliot's service, everything was perfect! We chose a few pieces which had meaning to us for the ceremony and Elliot played these beautifully. This really heightened our emotions on the day and has given us everlasting memories of those moments. Elliot was also very helpful at making song choice suggestions from his extensive repertoire, which we appreciated. All the pieces on the day were played so well and Elliot's skilled guitar playing created a very special and relaxed atmosphere, which felt like a dream come true. Our guests also enjoyed Elliot's performances and we had so many lovely comments from them during our outdoor drinks reception saying how wonderful the music was. Not only is Elliot a very talented musician, he is also a true professional and friendly person. Nothing was too much trouble and it was a pleasure to have him with us on our wed...”

One of my favourite things about my wedding!

5 stars - Elliot Smith are Highly Recommended
booked Elliot Smith for their Wedding in North Yorkshire October 2021

“Elliot playing during our ceremony and reception was one of the best parts of the day. He made walking down the aisle such a special moment for me. The only thing I regret slightly is not being able to listen to his full set during the reception because of photography getting in the way. Thank you so much Elliot - the guests loved you too!”
