Matt, thank you so much for playing at our wedding yesterday. You were absolutely amazing and Steven and I (and all our guests!) loved your music. Thank you for making our wedding day that extra special! Couldn't recommend you enough!

Jen and Steven – Yorebridge House, North Yorkshire – June 2017

Massive thank you to our amazing Sax player Matt for entertaining our guests during the wedding meal. He was the first thing I booked 2 years ago when we chose our venue because his videos were absolutely amazing. But on Friday he was even better than I thought he would be! Thanks Matt.

Nikki and Declan – Airth Castle, Stirlingshire – June 2017


Matt, I wanted to thank you for playing at our wedding. You were amazing on the saxophone and provided a great atmosphere during the drinks reception and the wedding breakfast. Everyone commented on how good you were and how professional/organised it was. (I think you got more comments than my wife!) I would recommend you to anyone; your communication was excellent throughout and always kept in touch.

Gareth and Vicky – Dunkenhalgh Hotel, Lancashire – May 2017

Matt, we can't thank you enough for playing during our drinks reception and wedding breakfast in Chipping last weekend. We knew you would be good but you were sooo much more than that - you were incredible, and you created such an amazing atmosphere! We have had so many comments on how great you were! Before booking I had my reservations about you playing during the meal as I didn't want the music to be overpowering. You assured me that this wouldn't be the case and encouraged me to go for it and I am so glad you did!! It was the perfect backing for a wedding meal and everybody loved it. Thank you again.

Hi Matt, we are so grateful you travelled so far and your service throughout the whole planning was exceptional. My dad commented on you playing throughout the dinner saying he didn’t know how much it cost to have you play but whatever it was, it was worth it, and I think he summed up everyone's opinion. So thanks again, we absolutely loved it. You will no doubt be in Scotland again in the near future x Also, Andrew has just reminded me that while you were enjoying your meal, Andrew gave you a shoutout in his speech and it got one of the biggest cheers, you really did help make the day.

Jemma and Andrew – Lochside Hotel, New Cumnock – March 2017

Michaela and Mark – Norton Park – February 2017

Hi Matt. I just wanted to say what an outstanding job you did playing the sax for us at our wedding yesterday!! You really did make our day extra special and so many people commented on how good you were and what a lovely atmosphere it created! Many thanks for being part of our special day and making it one to remember!

Hayley and Jamie – Swancar Farm, Nottingham – October 2016

Thank you to Matt Stacey for playing at our wedding on the 16th September, you were fantastic and we loved all of your songs! We had lots of compliments from guests saying you're the best they've heard. Would recommend to anyone who would like a great saxophonist at their wedding or any event!

Rebecca and Liam – Shrigley Hall, Cheshire – September 2016


First of all we'd like to say an enormous thank you for playing our wedding. We honestly believe your were the single best thing we spent money on for our wedding. You played almost none stop and flawlessly, whereas everyone else we enquired about strictly did two 45 min sets etc. You seem to play not for a job but because it's your passion. Every single person (and that isn't an exaggeration ) commented on how amazing you were and how you added so much to the atmosphere of our wedding yet still blended in seamlessly. Many wedding professionals were so poor during the planning of our wedding yet you were so easy to work with throughout. You always offered your professional advice when we requested things even if it wasn't what we suggested as you knew, as the pro, what works and what doesn't. We were right to trust you as your contribution to our wedding was monumental. I honestly could not recommend you enough and also couldn't praise you enough. Thank you so much! Honestly anyone looking at live wedding music must choose Matt Stacey, it will be one of the best decisions you make!

Rachael and Nick Ox Pasture Hall, Scarborough August 2016

Hi Matt, Well what can I say, you were absolutely amazing yesterday. Thank you so much for making our day perfect. You made the atmosphere and everyone was talking about how amazing you were. You made our day so much more special with your talent. We could not have been happier, and as a surprise for my husband it was amazing. Dan cried when he realised you were there playing and it wasn't a CD. Everyone was talking about you yesterday and this morning at breakfast. You're a very talented man and I really appreciate what you did on our special day. Thank you again from myself and Dan. I would certainly recommend you to all our friends.

Jessica and Dan – Chevin Hotel, Otley – July 2016


Dear Matt, You were incredible! Thank you so much for playing at our wedding, it was an absolute joy listening to you and we couldn't have asked for more. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed watching and listening to you on the terrace and throughout our meal. It was one of our highlights of an amazing day. We hope you enjoyed yourself as much as everyone enjoyed you.

Stella and Adam – Richmond Hill Hotel, London – June 2016

I would like to personally extended our thank you to you for making our day so special. You were truly amazing. We were most in awe of your work and the selected tracks Stella choose during our presents made her extremely emotional with joy. For this I thank you. When we think about our wedding day, you will always be remembered for providing the most incredible music, creating a fantastic environment for our guests to enjoy drinking and socialising and most of importantly of all, making my wife the happiest she could ever be.

Adam – Richmond Hotel, London – June 2016


Thank you so much for ensuring I had the best ever saxophonist in the world playing at my wedding. The playlist was exactly what I wanted, every single song. You nailed them all!! You listened to my ideas and you over exceeded my expectations! Top draw!

Michelle and Mark – Rivington Hall Barn – April 2016

We just want to thank you again for the huge contribution you made to Fiona and Stephen's wedding on Saturday. Your playing really added to the atmosphere of the drinks reception and the meal. You managed to be heard by everyone yet remained unobtrusive, I don't know how you did it! Everyone (young and old) complimented us on our choice of entertainment. Several guests (including our own daughter) are musicians themselves and were very impressed by your mellow sax playing and the backing tracks... gorgeous! You also played well beyond your time frame - we have nothing but praise for every aspect of your performance. - Marianne (Brides Mum)

Sarah and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for yesterday, everyone commented on what a fantastic addition you were to our wedding and we are really grateful for you playing throughout the day, the wedding breakfast definitely wouldn't have been the same without you.

We cannot thank you enough for playing at our Wedding. You were absolutely incredible and played beautifully. You made our reception welcome one to remember and our guests could not compliment you enough. The atmosphere you created was out of this world and listening to you play your sax made our day. We have already recommended you and will continue to do so.

We cannot put into words how much you blew us and all our guests away with your amazing performance, and having you there really did add that extra magic to our day. You created such a happy and uplifting atmosphere which was exactly what we were looking for that we cannot thank you enough. We wish you lots of success for the future, keep doing what you do best!

Gaynor and Lennox – Rivervale Barn, Yately, Hampshire – February 2015

I just wanted to say a huge thank you! I got lots of feedback on your playing and it was all absolutely fantastic. From my perspective, it was lovely that you kept me informed and reassured without any prompting in the lead-up to the wedding, then just arrived on time, set-up and started playing. Despite coming from furthest away and having never met, you were easily the supplier I was most confident in! The music was beautiful and really set the mood through the drinks and breakfast. As I said, I got a huge number of compliments about you. Thanks again

Hannah and Tom – Homewood Park Hotel, Bath – December 2014


A massive thank you for providing such amazing entertainment at our wedding. We have had so much feedback about you. To say our guests were wow'd would be an understatement!.

Matt played during our wedding breakfast and we cannot recommend him highly enough!! We saw Matt play during a friend’s wedding and we just knew we had to have him play at ours too!!

All our guests commented on how your music made the day flow perfectly. I'm sure you will have gathered from the guest participation, everyone thoroughly enjoyed your music. Thank you for setting up outside, despite the initial shower, it was lovely to arrive from church and see you set up under that massive tree. What a wonderful setting. Fortunately the blue skies followed and the celebrations continued outside. Your music was soothing and relaxing and very welcoming. Thank you again for adding our requests to your playlist, we really appreciated it. It was a pleasure to meet you. We would have no hesitation in recommending you.

Hi Matt, I wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding at Rudding Park. We had a wonderful day and I am so pleased that we booked you as the music was just fantastic. I will never forget walking out of the drinks reception room and seeing you set up and playing on the patio while everyone sipped their Pimms in the sunshine. It was one of those perfect moments…..and again, the music throughout the wedding breakfast was just perfect. Thank you for your part in making our day so special and I hope our paths cross again in the future.

Christine and Richard – Rudding Park, Harrogate – September 2013

I cannot express how thankful we are for all your hard work. You were unbelievable. I am not exagerating when I say that I had sooo many compliments about you from so many guests. Everyone said it was so different to hear the sax and felt that you really set an amazing atmosphere. Having the reception outside with the sun shining and sax music was stunning. It was also brilliant during the meal to have your music, but not intrusive at all. I will definitely be recommending you to any of my friends. Thanks sooo much again.

Lisa and Paul – Solsgirth House, Dollar, Scotland – July 2013


Hi Matt, Just wanted to say thank you again for helping to make our wedding day so very special. You added atmosphere to the day - entertaining but not over-powering, with a fantastic selection of tunes. The duet you mixed of Etta James and yourself for my entrance was absolutely outstanding. Our guests' appreciation was expressed through rapturous applause and several requests for your business card. Even the venue were impressed by what they saw and heard. You truly made our day one to remember. As you know, I kept you a secret....you were my trump card. Thank you.

James and I would like to thank you once again for playing at our wedding celebration at the Stables. Honestly, it was the most beautiful way to celebrate and entertain our guests - almost every single guest commented on the amazing sax player for a long time afterwards. I have even come across people who were not at the party, that mentioned you to us - having heard about the sax player. We will most certainly be recommending you to anyone who needs entertainment for a wedding or such celebration. There are no words to describe how wonderful that afternoon was for us, and how perfect it was made by having you there.
