“I wanted to write testimonial for Ollie (sorry its a little late) Booking Ollie was by far one of the best things i did. He was our favourite little detail of the whole day. The music was just beautiful and accompanied our venue perfectly. Everyone commented on how subtle and beautiful it was while we were eating. Ollie was so polite and lovely, I couldn't help but give him a huge hug when he was packing up to leave. I was sad when the music stopped. I managed to take a moment to look around during the meal and take it all in, having that stunning music as the background for our perfect day will forever stick in my mind and i can even still hear Coldplay playing in my head. You cant put a price on a memory like that and im so grateful to Ollie for being there and doing a fantastic job. Everyone was intrigued when he quietly set up in the corner of the wedding breakfast and when he started playing it was so different and thoroughly relaxing, it was the perfect addition to our rustic wholesome meal. Thank you so much Ollie!! JUST PERFECT xxx”Ciara - Wedding, Gloucester

We requested Oliver to play five specific songs, one as my wife walked down the aisle, one we all sang along to during the ceremony and three at the end. He then played during our reception. Oliver performed impeccably, blended into our wedding day perfectly and was a genuinely nice guy. Both my wife and I are delighted that we booked him and would not hesitate to recommend him to any of our friends or family in the future.”Phil & Claire - Wedding, Cain Manor, Artford, Surrey.

“We had a wonderful wedding and Ollie Collins was lovely. Ollie was very professional and his music was beautiful and really added to the occasion.

“Hi Amy, It was fab having Ollie play at our wedding! It was the perfect touch to our ceremony, and made it very special. He was also pleasure to work with! My only complaint is that I didn't get to hear more of his playing, but I know my guests loved it.”Katie Reynolds - Wedding, Boolean Library, Oxford

“Amy, Oliver could not have been any better, our day was absolutely perfect and he was clearly a key part to its success. He was there when we needed him and asked questions of how we would like the day to run but without any impact to us. His performance was faultless, we received a number of comments from friends and family on how good he was and he very much added an ambiance to the day which recorded music would not have done. Please pass our feedback on to Oliver, I will certainly be recommending him to others.”Samuel & Bryony - Wedding, Eastclose Country Hotel, Dorset.

“There is only one word to deacribe Ollie .... INCREDIBLE :) We cannot thank you enough for playing at our wedding and helping to create that magical atmosphere. Ollie was fabulous in the way that moving around the venue a couple of times due to the weather really didn't phase him. His song list was great and learning to play a specific song for us was just truly wonderful and we will never forget it. We had the most amazing day and like I said we cannot thank you enough :) :)”Lorna Allard - Wedding, Suffolk

“Hi Amy, please can you pass on my thanks to Ollie? He played beautifully for our wedding ceremony. I wish I could have just sat and listened to him instead of having to have so many photos- I didn’t even get to say hi. Anyway, if you could let him know he was great and we’ll be recommending him to others. Thank you.”Joanna Rapley - Wedding, Lythe Hill Hotel, Surrey

“Ollie was absolutely amazing. He was perfect on the guitar and created such a lovely atmosphere for our ceremony and when having pictures taken afterwards. All of our guests mentioned how great it was to have Ollie playing in the background. Thank you Ollie for naming our ceremony so special!”Rosie Finney - Wedding, Essex

“Ollie, thank you so much for Friday. Everyone comment on how lovely it was to have live acoustic music being played during our ceremony and wedding reception. You sounded fantastic and timed the requested songs perfectly throughout the ceremony. Everyone we spoke to said how much they enjoyed the music and how nice and approachable you were. If anyone is looking for a talented acoustic guitar player to play alternative/pop music, Ollie is your man. Thanks again. Dan and Sarah.”Dan Baker - Wedding, Kent

“Ollie was awesome and he even learnt a new song for us so I could walk down the aisle to our chosen song :) Thanks very much Ollie!”Ven Ganeva - Wedding, Surrey

“Ollie was perfect & played our wedding music exactly how we imagined. Our only regret is that we didn’t get a chance to thank Ollie personally & to hear more of his music during the drinks reception as we were busy having photos taken.”Emma Okane - Wedding, London

“Hi Nick, On behalf of Sonia and myself I would like you to pass on our gratitude to Oliver and the Magic Tones. Oliver was fantastic and was everything we could have wanted from the moment he began to play at the ceremony until the moment he finished playing at the wedding breakfast. The Magic Tones were brilliant, they performed our first dance exactly how we wanted it played and the band thoroughly entertained our guests throughout the evening. Once again a big big thank you for helping us create the perfect wedding day for all of our guests. Kind regards”Kevin & Sonia Ovenden - Wedding, Goodwood House, Chichester
