Worth. Every. Penny.
We found Gareth through WeddingWire and we are so thankful that we did! From our initial emails, Gareth has always been extremely professional, prompt, and thorough. Two weeks before our wedding we made the unreasonable request for Gareth to learn a song that wasn’t in his catalogue and he delivered beautifully!Sent on 13/08/2019
Gareth set the tone for our wedding from the moment our guests walked in. His renditions of songs that people know and love really captivated so many of our guests. He was sure to time all of the songs in our ceremony so well that everything flowed smoothly.
We received so many compliments from our guests about Gareth. Everyone was very impressed with him and his beautiful voice.
He was a huge hit at our wedding and the easiest recommendation we can give to couples planning their wedding. Our wedding day was perfect and Gareth was such a big part of that.

What an amazing musician and an even better person! Gareth provided us with the perfect soundtrack for our wedding, and we couldn’t be happier! Because of the pandemic, we only had 40 days to plan our wedding, but once we got in touch with Gareth, we knew the entertainment part was NOT going to be something we had to worry about. He even magically pulled off some of our specific song requests, including putting his own unique spin on the Game of Thrones theme song to make it wedding appropriate! It was such a unique and fun moment for everyone involved, and that Thrones to Beyoncé transition will certainly be a memory for us to cherish and smile at forever.
We (and all our guests) can’t say enough good things about Gareth. You killed it!!Sent on 12/08/2020

Our Wedding Day
We had an awesome day and we’re so happy you were a major part of it. Our family and friends loved the song choices and we meant it when we announced that you were played all the ‘heaters’Sent on 21/02/2020

Gareth went above and beyond to make our wedding day special. He learned several songs specifically for us - and it really made the ceremony unique. Many of our guests were so impressed with the quality of music, and he played covers of all different genres (chosen by us), a little something in there for everyone - from Drake to to the Eagles to Blink 182. Gareth was incredibly easy to work with, very responsive and very flexible. Out of all of the vendors we had for our wedding Gareth was one of our absolute favourites. We would recommend him to anyone for their big day!Sent on 19/01/2020

An absolute talent! Gareth played the cocktail hour and reception at our wedding in the Fall and it was a highlight of the evening. All of our guests asked where we’d found him and commented on how memorable he’d helped to make our first dance! Gareth is just incredible and I cannot recommend him strongly enough. He was quick to reply to emails, maintained communication with us, and was really easygoing about working with our timeline, including speeches and dinner courses. We requested that Gareth learned to play our first song — and I have never heard it sound so beautiful! It was perfect. He also learned a song for our parent-child dances and timed his set perfectly so I could share special moments with both my mom and dad. Great music, great guy—thank you, Gareth!Sent on 08/01/2020
