“Llew played at our wedding in the beautiful location of Buckland Hall near Brecon. His music really added something special to our ceremony, reception and breakfast. He played such a variety of music from cherished classic, to comforting traditional tunes, to fabulous film soundtrack, to catchy pop songs and many jazz standards (I think he even did some really cool improvisations with the jazz). He was an incredible entertainer. … he was willing to take any requests and he performed them so wonderfully. … He’s such a charming young man with great poise and well dressed. … I could definitely recommend him.” Nia Davies (Wedding)
