The Sneddon's played simply beautiful music. EVERY guest mentioned how beautiful the music was. I have to say the music was beyond my expectation. We chose only three songs and from those choices and our venue they chose the perfect music for our wedding and cocktail hour reserve them early you would hate to miss out on this opportunity

Margaret's harp with flute was very beautiful. We were very happy with the service and she was very easy and professional to work with. I was quite frantic and a bit overwhelmed during the party but I didnt have to worry about the music, Margaret took care of everything without me even having to ask or give directions. I can absolutely recommend her.

As a wedding officiant, I have had the pleasure of working with Margaret and William. I was impressed by their professionalism, talent, and ease of working when they provided the music for a particularly rich and complicated wedding ceremony. Not only did their music add grace and elegance to the ceremony, but their attentiveness to detail and ability to improvise made working with them seamless. I would recommend them highly for any occasion. It was obvious to me that they bring talent and professionalism to all of their work.
