Hi Titia, Hugest apologies for not coming up and introducing myself to you at the wedding, I do not know where the day went! I am so sad that I missed most of your performance, photos took A LOT longer than expected, but sooooo many people have highlighted the string quartet as being one of the best features and how brilliant they were! So thank you so much, I cannot wait to watch the video and hear more! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and have a very Happy New Year. When I receive photos I will send some though, as I think the photographer got some lovely ones of you all. Thanks Cathy

We just wanted to truly thank you for making our wedding day so special. The music and ambiance you provided was beyond anything we could have imagined. I’m so sorry I didn’t get to speak with you before you left. Everything was such a blur and I was very emotional. Please know that we were truly honored to have you at our wedding. Thank you so much for everything and especially for learning our song. Our wedding was magical and we are truly grateful for all of our services. You were such a delight to work with and we hope to stay in touch in the future.

Thank you so much for the beautiful music you played at our wedding ceremony at the 12 Apostles on 22 October. We could not have asked for anything more, the music enhanced an already beautiful day and created such a wonderful atmosphere for everyone to enjoy. Thank you for your hard work, it really was a special day and you contributed hugely to it.

There are no words to adequately describe the pure joy you gave Richard yesterday for his birthday. To play with such connection and enthusiasm throughout the recital totally engaging our son in music... we are ever grateful! Indeed a very special afternoon that we will treasure...Thank you both for touching our son's life so profoundly and the rest of us as well :)

Eugene and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all you did to make our wedding so special. Music is such a big part of our lives and you played everything we asked for so beautifully. I just wish we could have heard more of it!! But that is the nature of weddings and being whisked off to take photographs etc. We thoroughly enjoyed it and our guests all commented too on how wonderful you guys were so thank you for helping to create a day unique to us and exactly the ceremony and celebration we dreamed of. You guys rock! Much love from Sonja and Eugene Dennis xx

We are the clients who booked Palm Strings for Christmas Day through Sean Wilyman at Trek Direct Tours. I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU. They were charming, professional and simply marvellous. They transformed a wonderful day into a magical day and was everything that I could have dreamed of. It was made all the more wonderful for the fact that coincidentally Palm Strings had played at my niece's wedding in Vrede du Lust some four years ago. We are all from the UK but fell in love with SA many years ago and it is intertwined with so many wonderful memories for us. My niece was here this year with her husband and their new baby - so its was especially poignant. I checked both Trip Advisor and Twitter but could not see your presence to shout from the rafters as to how fabulous you are! I have copied TEN Uk in on this email, they are a high class concierge company dealing with copious amounts of discerning clients, they also have an office in CT, I would recommend you without hesitation should any of their clients be looking for such an exquisite experience for any wedding or function - or as we all decided Christmas Day - why don't we have them for every dinner!!!! Many, many thanks and kind regards

Dearest Titia and Mike, You made my party! You made my day! You made everybody's day! And I thank you from the bottom of my happy heart for making it so. Music definitely the MOST impactful artform and your repertoire was so sensitively chosen that there was something for absolutely everybody. All my guests commented on it, as you know and I hope that they will use you in the future. Apart from making beautiful music, you are also such NICE people and so youthful and goodlooking as well! :-) What a bonus to have that as well as the talent. It is a pity that you did not come inside for my speech because I raved about you and thanked you publicly and I am so glad that I heard you that first time in the Link. Thank you thank you thank you thank you - with love and appreciation.

WOW WOW WOW-what can I say!! I can honestly say that your music was one of the highlights of our wedding and of course the most fantastic send off for our honeymoon! All the tears I managed-with serious effort-to keep at bay during the wedding ceremony were finally released at Rovos Rail!! You were so incredible and everyone commented on your music and energy. We were wondering if you would be happy for us to rate you in the SABI best wedding providers section? Thank you again-thank goodness we have the DVD to relive the experience and hear your music!!

Hi Titia Thank you and Mike again for those unforgettable moments, when you both made a beautiful day even more beautiful! You did it for us on December 18 2003, and now again on December 28 2011. And we wait for more!! Why not in Gabon? Tony and I and the children are leaving for Malaysia tomorrow. I will, however, keep these details in file for use during our next visit. Thank you both again for the wonderful music on the 28th December. Shyam and Alvin say 'to just say thank you to the both of you seems not to be enough!
