I am always thrilled by the response to my playing as it is wonderful to hear how the music has been enjoyed. Here are a letters and recommendations of my playing from people I have worked with in the past.
Just a short note to let you know how much we appreciated your performance at Adrian and Nia”s wedding at the Manor House, Celtic manor Newport on 7th November 2015. Great musicianship and a superb selection of music that created a wonderful atmosphere to complement the occasion. Many of our guests commented how much they enjoyed your contribution to the bride and groom”s special day.

Rhys and I would like to thank you, though, for the beautiful music you brought to our special day. From the moment I stood outside the door, waiting to walk down the aisle, I knew we had made the perfect choice when I heard you playing. It was elegant, emotional and made the day even more memorable.
Our guests were very complimentary; they continue to comment on your flawless performance and the range of music you played. Not only this, many have mentioned how lovely you are. I’m sorry that myself and Rhys did not get to speak to you on the day.
Thank you again for being a part of our special day.

Shelley is reliable, organised and professional in her approach. Her concert preparation is painstaking, ensuring a polished performance and excellent sound quality. She is a joy to work with and her enthusiasm is infectious. Her drive and determination through the whole process from organising the concert to the evening itself were remarkable and I look forward to working with her again in the very near future.

Your concert was a real treat, enjoyed and appreciated by us all. It was so different, it was innovative and a means of bringing even us into the digital age.

Shelley”s concert, just ELECTRIC and that’s before you hear the loop pedal and DHC light.
I just wanted to drop you a message to thank you so much for making our special day that even more amazing. Everyone commented on how superb you were and we really can’t thank you enough for being there. I hope it will not be the last time you play at the lightouse (or for us) and I am sure that Chris and Barbara will be recommending you to any couples who will be tying the know there in future ?
Thank you so much, again, Shelley. The day was a complete, wonderful blur for us – but one of our most cherished memories was Amy and I sitting quietly and listening to you at the end, whilst we waited to leave for the reception and everyone else had gone. Truly special.

Hi Shelley. Hope your well. I wanted to emailed you to say a HUGE thank you for playing at Coed y Mwstwr for us at such short notice. There was not one single person at out wedding who didn’t comment on you. Everyone was so impressed. My sister in law made a comment about how when they were trying to practise walking my little niece down the isle you changed your song to twinkle twinkle and that was a lovely touch. Even now when people are talking about our wedding you always come up about how amazing you were. One guest during dinner thought we were playing a CD, it was only when someone pointed out that you were over in the corner that she was amazed. Everyone loved how you played songs that everyone recognised. Such as modern stuff to welsh songs. We couldn’t say thank you enough.
You made our day much more special.
Thank you ?

I have always loved the harp but have never heard it played like you played it tonight. One word springs to mind to describe it WOW!. Thank you, it was a wonderful night of music and I feel very privileged to have been in the audience of someone so talented. I shall wax lyrical about your performance to everyone I know and look forward to your next concert.
