5 stars - Matt Whiting are Highly Recommended booked Matt Whiting for their Wedding at The Old Deanery in North Yorkshire

“We cant praise Matt enough. We requested songs for the ceremony that weren't on his repetoire, asked him to set up in two different areas, none of which were any trouble. He played before and during our wedding ceremony and then afterwards during the drinks reception, not stopping until we went in for the wedding breakfast. His music was beautful and set the tone for the rest of the day, everybody commented on how lovely he sounded. Matt is professional, polite and unassuming, we would highly recommend him.”
