Elliot contributed to the romantic,serene,warm atmosphere of our wedding.

5 stars - Elliot Smith are Highly Recommended booked Elliot Smith for their Wedding in Hertfordshire September 2019

“Elliot arrived on time,looked very smart,was very polite and played with passion and total commitment to the job in hand. He played songs from his own repertoire as requested by us,mostly slow,romantic ballads which added to and enhanced the atmosphere of the formal wedding ceremony and the celebration at the drinks reception afterwards. He was playing in the background but the ceremony and reception would not have been the same without him there. Our guests complimented us on our choice of performer and instrument style. They did not really engage with him. I would highly recommend him and would consider booking him again for a future event.”
