Everyone there commented how amazing the band was
Hi James, just a quick note before we fly on honeymoon, last night was brilliant, the band really made it a great end to the night. Literally everyone there commented how amazing the band was. Thanks! Just a quick final ask, but could you send across your set list, I'd like to have it to remind us of the songs on the night. Also, if you can email any photos you have, or I can pick them up if you're posting any on your Facebook page. Also, massive thanks for making the George Ezra song happen - Claire loved it. Thanks again
