I couldn't have wished for better music on our day
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding ceremony, it was absolutely magical and really appreciated the time/effort it took to get the Coldplay piece to sound that good with just the two of you. I couldn't have wished for better music on our day
