Diamond Skyline Orchestra…Music to all ears!

Screen-Shot-2015-09-17-at-10.05.20Our new list of event suppliers for 2016 will soon be released, and on reviewing our feedback, it seems one supplier was music to everybody’s ears! Check out some of the images and feedback for Diamond Skyline Orchestra’s recent events at One Great George Street .

On working with us, Diamond Skyline Orchestra’s Director, Barney Lowe, notes…

Performing at One Great George Street has always been a lot of fun for us, and it’s great when we get the chance to showcase our 12-piece band. The Great Hall is one of the most beautiful rooms in London, so it is always a pleasure to perform in there for our clients. We are with them from start to finish, and every wedding we do is personal, so seeing the couple enjoy themselves and their guests filling out the dance floor is a great feeling.
