" The music you played was beautiful"
Thank you so much for performing at my mother's memorial service. The music you played was beautiful and made the event so special. Every single guest that I spoke to following the service complimented your performance and how lovely your music was. I couldn’t recommend you highly enough. Hopefully we will be able to book you for another event soon.

" I definitely recommend"
Rachel performed at our wedding last Friday and it was definitely one of the best decisions we ever made for our wedding! Rachel was amazing so professional and so so talented. Many of our guests commented on how great she was. If anyone is thinking of having a violinist perform at their wedding I definitely recommend you book Rachel- not just an amazing violinist but a lovely person too!

" Went above & beyond"
If anyone is looking for a wedding violinist I cannot recommend Rachel Somerset enough. We were amazed by seeing her perform at a friend's wedding and booked her immediately after for ours.
We were so blessed to have her perform at our wedding, from walking down the aisle, to mesmerising our guests at our drinks reception. She also went above & beyond learning a piece of music that meant the world to us. Truly beautiful. Get her booked, she's absolutely amazing.

"Best violinist he’s ever heard"
I just wanted to say a big thank you for performing at our wedding on Saturday 4th May. I had so much great feedback about your set from people. My photographer said you are the best violinist he’s ever heard! You were amazing and created such a great ambience. Thank you so much for being part of our day, we will never forget it!
P.S. The Game of Thrones theme went down a treat!

"We are left in awe"
As I originally suspected, I along with all of our guests are left in awe with your performance on Monday. Your talent is admirable and your warm persona made it an absolute pleasure to have been liaising with you over these past couple of months. My entire family are still reminiscing over the beautiful entrance you helped create. I can confidently say your performance gave the wow factor that we were looking for at my sisters big day.
I wish you all the best for the future. I hope we meet again.

"Exceed all expectations"
I would like to say a huge thank you for your outstanding performance at our wedding. Your beautiful music genuinely was a highlight of our day, and we are so pleased we booked you! While we knew you would be great, you really did exceed all expectations! We have also had multiple guests complimenting your performance and saying what a lovely addition it was, to both the ceremony itself and the drinks reception.
Absolute highlights of ours were the performances of Game of Thrones and Harry Potter during the signing of the register! We feel these songs added character to our ceremony and made it more personal to us. We would highly recommend you to anyone and everyone!
Thank you again for contributing to our special day and making it as amazing as it was.

WOW! We would like to say a massive thank you to Rachel for playing so beautifully on our Wedding Reception. You have made our day very special. What a pleasant surprise for our guests.

"No words can describe my appreciation at this moment"
Rachel was punctual, friendly and extremely passionate about delivering a world-class service. My proposal was executed to perfection because of her genius ability and natural talent with the violin. I am extremely happy at this moment because she has made a beautiful moment far more spectacular than I ever imagined. I am truly in awe with how beautifully she played All Of Me by John Legend. Absolutely fantastic! No words can describe my appreciation at this moment. Spell-binding display. My fiance and I truly thank you for a wonderfully delivered moment we will never forget. Thank you so much!

"One special moment that I will treasure forever"
Pete and I just wanted to say an enormous thank you for playing at our wedding at Hampden House on 30th September! You were amazing! We couldn't have been more pleased with your excellent playing and professionalism and you looked lovely. We had such great feedback from all of our guests about how great you were. Pete and I were absolutely gutted to have missed your rendition of the Game Of Thrones theme song but it went down a treat with the guests!
When I look back on our wedding day there is one very special moment that I will treasure forever. It was when Pete and I first arrived at the venue and walked through the venue out towards the lawn and you were playing Christina Perri, A Thousand Years. It's one of my favourite songs and it was just such a magical moment and I can't thank you enough for that.
I hope all is well and that you get to relax a bit now that the wedding season is drawing to a close.
All the best!
Luiza and Pete, Hampden House, Chiltern Hills, September 2017

I wanted to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding. The Bruno Mars Entrance Piece sounded amazing! I hope the videographer has a clip of that moment.

"We knew she was going to deliver an incredible service"
Rachel performed during our engagement dinner. I must say she surpassed every single one of our expectations. We knew she was going to deliver an incredible service as she came highly recommended to us from one of our friends who had hired her services before. Watching her videos and demos online was great but in my humble opinion they don't fully demonstrate what this amazing violinist sounds like live. One word to described her entire performance: mellifluous!
Kate & Jonathan - Chelmsford, June 2017
Thank you for performing during our Wedding Ceremony. Our guests kept coming to us all day to say how beautiful your music was.
Ellie & Tim May, London, May 2017
Rachel was absolutely brilliant and there wasn't a dry eye in the room when she played our Civil Ceremony entrance song. Her evening set really set the ambience and I have heard nothing but praise for her skill. Rachel, we really appreciate your input into our day and hope that our paths cross again in the future. Your skill is astounding. Lots of Love.
Zena & Hammad - Syon Park, April 2017
Thank you so much for a faultless performance at Zéna's wedding on Saturday, you were amazing and the icing on the cake to a perfect day! Everyone loved you and we have had countless positive comments about you. We would have no hesitation in booking you again, and hope to do so in the future.

"Look no further, this girl is spectacular"
Rachel is superb. If you considering a violinist for your event, look no further, as this girl is spectacular. Rachel performed during a very important dinner event for us in February at the Dorchester and she was utterly impressive. I strongly recommend her services and I cannot wait to hire her again.
Sabrina Wesley - The Dorchester - February 2017
"So grateful for everything you did"
Rachel played at our wedding on Friday 7 October at Chilston Park hotel and I just wanted to get in touch to say thank you so much!
You created such a lovely atmosphere for our reception drinks and we received so many amazing comments about your performance. I'm really sorry I didn't get a chance to thank you personally on the day, but we were both so grateful for everything you did.
Thank you again - you were brilliant.
