“Tailored Entertainment were very prompt in responding to any enquiry I had regarding the act and a pleasure to deal with. Oliver was very professional and positioned himself well at the venue to entertain our guests. As the bride on the day I was busy having photos taken whilst Oliver was playing, apart from during the ceremony so unfortunately didn't hear his playing as much as I would have liked. However, part of the reason for hiring him was to entertain our guests and the feedback from them has been very positive. They felt the music he played was just right for the occasion. I would definitely recommend Oliver and Tailored Entertainment.”

“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”
