Elizabeth York, Letters of thanks

References available on request
Elizabeth performed her beautiful harp at our wedding in May 2011 and we can't say enough how very happy we are with her contribution to our wonderful day.  We visited Elizabeth at her home about a month before the wedding to listen to some of her repertoire, we could have stayed and listened to her for hours.  She played beautifully and even offered to learn a new song or 2 in time for the wedding.
Before the start of the ceremony, Elizabeth played to guests waiting for the bride, during the signing of the register and for a while afterwards during photographs.  Everyone commented on how talented she is and were very pleased that we had found her.
Elizabeth is very flexible and willing to match the mood of your celebrations, whether it be soft and romantic or upbeat and a touch jazzy!  We would have no hesitation what-so-ever in recommending her service.  She will do you proud and your guests will be talking about her when reflecting on your special day.
Elvan & Alan Clarke, Bisham Abbey, 13th May 2011

Thank you so much for your playing it was simply beautiful and made the afternoon... You are very very talented and I shall be recommending you to all of my friends who are getting married! Thanks once again.

  Dear Elizabeth,
Just a quick note to thank you for the wonderful music you gave us at our wedding in April. Many of our friends said how much they'd enjoyed the harp music. We would recommend you most highly to any other wedding couples, or indeed anyone looking for a warm, friendly and talented harpist to play at any function.
Many thanks again,
Yvonne and Martin Franklin, Cambridge, April 2010

  We would like to thank you very much for playing at our wedding and helping to make it such a wonderful day. We enjoyed your playing immensely. We thought you would be pleased to be told of all the good comments we received from our guests. Without exception all remarks were very favourable and the word "wonderful" was heard many times.
(and in an e-mail some months afterwards)
I can add to what was said by saying that when the wedding is mentioned your music is remembered and highly praised. Everyone thought that it helped to make the wedding a little more special.
