    It was a delight to have Catrin play at our wedding. She arrived in plenty of time and her playing was the perfect accompaniment to the ceremony and drinks reception. Our guests were equally impressed as we were, commenting on how nice the music was and how lovely Catrin was herself. Thank you, Catrin!
