So for anyone planning a wedding we couldn't recommend Rik highly enough". Sarah Fox, Manchester

"We found Rik online. He was well organised and communication was good. It was clear from Rik’s Youtube channel that he was the real deal in terms of technical proficiency and musicianship – this set our expectations high, and we weren’t disappointed. The musicians among our wedding guests were similarly impressed. Beyond that, what Rik really deserves praise for was his flexibility in tailoring his repertoire to our preferences – including learning and arranging two pieces as special requests. Both were beautifully done - this really made our day. Highly recommended!". David & Jenny Wood, Manchester
"Rik played at our wedding on a beautiful sunny Saturday in August this year. The elegant music he provided was the finishing touch to a glorious atmosphere and sensational day. He is not only professional but a talented Musician. I hope we have another occasion in the family for us to have him play for us again. I can't recommend Rik highly enough". Beege and Keith, Cheshire.
