I noticed that you did keep moving around for us and came down onto the lawn which was fabulous. We're slowly catching up with all the guests and so many are commenting on how fabulous you were and how much it added to their enjoyment so very many thanks. For me personally, the moment Dad and I stepped out from "the secret door" into the drawing room to hear you playing Flower Song and see the radiant faces of loved ones was a wonderful rush of happiness that will stay with me forever.

I'm just disappointed that, getting ready upstairs, I missed out on most of it! We selected Nimrod as I waited at the top of the staircase and then Canon for walking down. The atmosphere it created was so charged - it was simply magical. We so appreciate your making such captivating music a part of our special day!
