Dear Chris,

What a glorious summer Austin and I have had, beginning with our wedding day on the 23rd of July!

Many (if not all) of our family and friends have reiterated exactly what we felt – ‘it was the best wedding ever’. Part of the magic was the beautiful music in the Abbey, to be followed by the wonderful ensembles played by the Groves String Quartet and then rounded off with the Chris Hilton Little Big Band.

Young, middle-aged and geriatrics alike, could not keep off the dance floor! When it was announced that Austin and I were leaving for the evening – no one cared(!) – everyone was too busy busting a move on the dance floor. All of our guests have said that CHLBB is the best band they have every heard at a wedding. There were also many compliments on the string quartet – setting the tone for the exceptional backdrop of Byland Abbey.

We are aware that keeping guests of all ages grooving on the dance floor all night is quite an achievement, and always the sign of a successful bash!

Thank you so much for making our Big Day so amazing – one that Austin, I and our nearest and dearest will treasure always.

Please extend our gratitude to Lucinda, who was supportive over the months organising the music for the reception – and- of course to the quartet and members of CHLBB!

With warmest wishes, Heather & Austin
