In 2016 I won the North of England Wedding Award, musician of the year, for outstanding customer service, as voted for by my brides and grooms.

Andrew was dedicated to our wedding from the first enquiry. He is so friendly, talented and exoerienced it was an honour to have him play at our wedding reception. So many guests commented on how brilliant he was and what a lovely touch it added. He played a few songs at the end of our wedding breakfast which really got our guests clapping along and in the spirit for the evening! Andrew travelled a very long way from the north east to play at our wedding in Lincolnshire which we really did appreciate as he didn’t have to commit to an event so far away. I would recommend Andrew to anyone looking for a fantastic musician to add that extra special touch and atmosphere to any event. Andrew without a doubt truly deserves this award.

Andrew is a very wonderful entertainer. He was very thoughtful and attentive to my needs, on what I wanted and at times knew what I wanted before I did. He responded to queries quickly and had a wonderful archive of music to play on the day. I couldn’t of asked him to be more, it was perfect and most of all all my guests commented on how he set the scene and played beautifully, also as far as I was aware he accepted requests within the theme if our wedding. if you listen to his music, you would be in the same feeling as us and has earned to be the winner of this category. Thank you.
Shirley and Ian Blackmore NE22 6BE 4th July 2015
Andrew is a talented and beautiful sax player. His music was lovely and very appropriate to the occasion. He was very attentive and helpful in choosing our wedding music. On the day, Andrew was great at blending in to the background with his music before and after the ceremony but he was a key part of the day as he played us in and out of the ceremony. All the guests loved the music, it was a beautiful addition to a beautiful day and made many of them cry! Andrew was very reliable and didn’t rush away afterwards, he had many a photo taken and really added something to our day. Very memorable.
Kirsty and Darren Gilmore NE24 4LB 18th July 2015
Andrew was brilliant on our wedding day and help makes some fantastic memories. He is very committed to both his job and his bride and grooms. He is always updating you with emails, which made me and my hubby feel better because you knew he would definitely be there on the day. His music just made the whole day amazing, all my guests loved every single minute of him playing. He really does deserve to win this, as I and am sure many others would say he is both an amazing person, and great at what he does.
Jessica and Philip McVay NE40 4XJ 31st July 2015
From first discussions with Andrew to the wedding date itself his service was fantastic. There were lots of suppliers who didn’t reply to messages and enquiries with any speed and this was very stressful. Andrew was the opposite. Andrew tailored the music to our tastes and our guests loved it. It created a beautiful atmosphere, and I couldn’t thank him enough.
Andrew was the icing on the cake to our wedding day. He provided a spectacular service and all our guests loved his professionalism and great taste in music. It was money well spent booking Andrew to perform light background music on our wedding day. Andrew deserves the recognition for all his hard work.

Very talented sax player who kept everyone entertained, played requests and was extremely friendly and professional, would recommend him for anyones wedding to add a touch of something special to the occasion.
Laura Sullivan and Jason Bewley DH8 5BG
Amazing from start to finish. I loved how beautiful he made the saxophone sound for the songs we had picked for the ceremony. We had so many of our guests commenting on how spectacular he was.
Rebecca Mockett NE28 0EY 22nd August 2015
Andrew was fantastic. He played in between the service and meal and everyone commented about how good he was. We never specified any particular songs for him to play although he did say we could but we just told him what type of music we liked. We thought he was great value for what he charged and we would of happily of paid extra. Andrew is very friendly and approachable and we would happily recommend him to anyone and we would use him again if we needed live entertainment. 5* entertainer!
Pippa and Richard Walker TS15 9TR 28th August 2015
Andrew is not only a great saxophonist with a wide repertoire, he is very good at gauging types of music to suit his audience. He has excellent sensitivity to age ranges and likely preferences, and involves the guests – both adults & children – and played specific choices. We were impressed that he allowed the children to leaf through his song books for suitable treats! We were thrilled and had many comments from guests about how much they had enjoyed his playing. Even the staff of the hotel were impressed, and he plays there regularly!

Catherine Round and Darren Bolton NE32 5QP 16th January 2016
Andrew played at our wedding and our guests were thrilled! He really went the extra mile! Not only did he learn a song, especially for my mum but he played this through the wedding breakfast and worked through the tables before giving her her very own CD which really made her day! This meant a lot as he put a lot of work in before the day and gave our wedding a personal touch. We cannot praise him / recommend him enough as we want other people to enjoy him as much as we all did!
Louise Elliott and Martin Jack NE33 5EH 26th February 2016
Andrew is a lovely man. He played sax at our wedding. He plays amazingly and creates a beautiful, tone when he plays. He played greeting guests outside in the grounds of our venue, Headlam Hall , which was magical, and also during our wedding breakfast. Andrew helped to make our special day even more perfect. We would strongly recommend him to anyone planning a wedding.
Fiona and Daniel Parkin DH7 7FB 27th April 2016
Andrew Taylor played the saxophone at our wedding on 11th June 16. We gave him songs that were special to us and although they were new to Andrew he sourced the music sheets and practiced them and played them perfectly on our special day. The day was made perfect by his talent and professionalism, he not only liaised with us but with the venue so everything was seamless. all our guests commented on how brilliant he was and he really did help make our day and helped us feel extra special. he did everything we asked for and more (don’t laugh but we almost felt like Royalty!)
Sarah Gleghorn and Joseph Wiseman DL16 7YQ 3rd June 2016
When we first met Andrew he was polite and friendly he played us different tunes and was not at all pushy for any business what so ever he really was all about his music and the ambience of our day. Before our special day we contacted him with our play list and all instructions for the day. He followed them through precisely and never questioned any of our plans/ideas. On our day he was so professional and polite, he made everyone feel at ease his music is beautiful. The first time we heard him play our hearts sank. Our reception was a mad hatters tea party in the garden and so his beautiful music playing whilst drinking tea in the garden looking over at the views of North York moored really set an idyllic and tranquil scene. We wish Andrew the very best of luck x
Diane and Lee Potter NE23 7XT 11th June 2016
From start to finish, Andrew was fantastic. Very professional and attentive. All my guests commented on how amazing he was! Would recommend Andrew to anyone wanting that special touch to their big day.
Heidi Franklin and Oleg Kranoslo YO21 3HA 25th June 2016
Andrew’s attendance was perfect. It was so different to have a solo saxophonist playing while the bride came up the aisle and then again while they walked back to the hotel. His choice of music during the initial reception and the wedding breakfast was good, with a good variety, played at the correct level that was not intrusive while the guests were talking. Many of the guests commented on having Andrew there and how much they had enjoyed it.
Sarah Van Der Vjan SS8 9PT 9th July 2016
Andrew, was professional and brilliant from start to finish. Such a true gentlemen and beautiful playing of the sax. We would highly recommend him and could listen to him play again and again.
