"Hi Andy,

Hope you're well.

I just wanted to drop you a note to say a huge thank you. You were absolutely brilliant at our wedding and everybody has mentioned how good you were; they were all up dancing and had the best time.

Holly and I will definitely come and see you next time you're playing!

All the best and thanks again,


10th September wedding - Durham Castle"
