booked John Gough for their Wedding in Lincolnshire

“We spent a lot of time looking for a singer for our wedding. My husband is very fussy but as soon as we heard John he was just the style we were after. Then my Mum said he had a friendly face so that sealed the deal :) John was so polite and friendly and well turned out and his communication before the event was spot on. We have had a lot of amazing comments from guests about John on how much they enjoyed his singing”

Everybody had a great evening.
