We just wanted to say a huge thank you and let you know how thrilled we were to have you play at our wedding. The wedding party thoroughly enjoyed your performances and you were a highlight of a very memorable day. Having you play at our drinks reception as our guests arrived went down a treat! You certainly got the afternoon off to a great start and continued to impress throughout the wedding breakfast! The sound of the sax was so perfect for these moments during the day. You have a fantastic repertoire and truly something for everyone. You are an exceptional Saxophonist and a great guy. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you. Thank you, Mr and Mrs Hutchinson. Ruth & John Hutchinson, 2017

Tim, Thank you so much for your contribution which helped to make Ashley and Alaina's day so special. The music you played was varied and well received by all with something to suit all tastes. We had many positive comments and would not hesitate recommending you. Once again many thanks for your contribution and you never know we may meet again in the future.  Gwenyth.  Gwenyth Moore (Mother of the Bridegroom), 2017

Tim helped my family out for an emergency wedding that was thrown together in a few weeks due to unfortunate circumstances, Tim offered to help so quickly and so kindly. Tim donated his time and talent to play at the wedding reception and this was done out of the kindness of his heart. It was beyond perfect and fitted the theme to the wedding perfectly. Tim is very talented and I would recommend him to anyone, with lots of love; Chloe xx (On behalf of the new Mr and Mrs Dixon).  Chloe Bateman, Daughter of the Bride, 2017

Thanks to Tim for a great performance entertaining our Guests!  Sharon x  Sharon & Ian Sharp, 2017

We booked Tim almost 2 years in advance for our wedding, turns out booking him was one of the best decisions of the day! I have never met some one as easy going and kind as Tim & when arranging a wedding you certainly need that friendly face. Nothing is too much for him. When booking Tim I was a little worried about not many videos of him playing on his profile [Note: there are many more now!], but I went with my gut and booked him anyway- and he was perfect! Tim played during the signing of the register, our exit at the church and our wedding breakfast, I just hope our videographer caught you playing in the church, so we can listen back in many years to come! ALL our guests commented on how amazing he was - we will certainly use him in the future, Tim helped to make our day even more perfect than we imagined, and me and Dan are forever greatful - amazing sax player, but an even better guy! PS Better Together was out of this world!  Thank you Tim - Love Mr and Mrs Alexander xx Kirsty Alexander Kirsty.  Kirsty & Dan Alexander, 2017                                                            Other guests comments - see my Facebook Page:                                                                                                                         Nathan Alexander - He was absolutely phenomenal! Never knew I enjoyed sax so much!                                                       Stephen James Tait I can honestly say that this man is amazing it might not seem like your sort of thing but he's a true talent I saw him yesterday at a wedding and I was shocked at just how good he is 🎷👌 please have a look and get a booking sorted asap .

Hi Tim, You did a superb job at our wedding.  Thank you for playing so beautifully at our wedding, lots of people have commented on how good you were.  I have recommended you to all my friends and business contacts, maybe you would consider playing at our party when all the building is completed. Thank you Martin and Alison.  Martin & Alison Bacon, 2017

Thank you so much for coming Tim. I absolutely loved listening to you play, it made our day even more amazing!               Ellie Mirault, 2017

Tim made our wedding breakfast very enjoyable , his music most definitely helped to break the ice between both sides of the family, I would recommend him to anyone, he is very professional and very polite.  Paul & Sarah Magee, 2017

Thank you so much for being a big part of our special day.  Everyone loved the songs you played and thought you were amazing!  Especially when you played Baker Street!  We would highly recommend you to any couple wanting something special for their big day.  We only wish we had booked you for the night time too! Charlene & Thomas xx                     Charlene & Thomas Finch, 2017

Tim, Thank you for playing for the wedding reception on Saturday.  It made such a difference, having music in the background as everyone was waiting to eat, and during the meal - greatly appreciated, also, that the music was gentle enough for people to carry on with their conversations without being drowned out!  Many thanks for your part in making the day so memorable.  Ruth.  Ruth Hays (Mother of the Bride), 2017

Tim was extremely professional and friendly and was a pleasure to have at our wedding day. His repertoire was extensive including all different styles of music. He played extremely well and we had many compliments from friends and family. Prices are very reasonable and worth paying extra for playing during the meal also. Would definitely recommend to others. Thank you so much again, Victoria and Lee.  Victoria & Lee Woolley, 2016

Tim, We just wanted to say a big thank you for playing at our daughter's September wedding. We had an amazing day and you playing when the guests arrived and throughout the drinks reception created a fantastic vintage/1930’s atmosphere. We had so many people comment on how wonderful the music was. In addition all the music you played was just spot on and our only regret was - there was not more time in the schedule for you to keep on playing, we loved it so much. You were also a pleasure to deal with, kind understanding and considerate.  Many many thanks, David & Rosanna.                           David & Rosanna Anderson (Parents of the Bride), 2016

Fantastic Tim - all our guests enjoyed your entertainment at our daughter Xenia and her new husband Russell's wedding 7th October. You helped capture memories that will live in our hearts.                                                                                               Nicky & Dave Williams (Parents of the Bride), 2016

Tim, you made our wedding day truly personal with the choice of music that we all carefully chose together. I was so pleased that I asked you to play during our wedding breakfast because at this moment in time..myself and Graham were able to sit and listen to you play whilst enjoying each others company. What a marvellous instrument the saxophone is, it created the most romantic atmosphere around us. Your are very talented and highly recommended. All of our guests loved your music and were singing along and truly enjoyed themselves.  Thank you for being so friendly and caring towards our guests and we wish you all the very best for the future.  Kirsty & Graham Carr, 2016

An absolute amazing two sets Tim did for our wedding on Saturday. His repertoire is immense with every song you can think of. Our guests were so impressed with Tim as they entered the venue and also after the speeches. A really nice bloke and we would recommend him to anyone. Thank you again Tim and thank you for making WEDFEST the best day of our lives.  Mr and Mrs Dunn  Joe & Joanna Dunn, 2016

If I had to choose a phrase to describe Tim it would be "above and beyond the call of duty".  Tim we cannot thank you enough for the contribution you made to our special day.  From start to finish you were nothing less than professional and the comments received from guests afterwards were overwhelmingly positive. I would without hesitation recommend you as a musician. The reason I chose the above phrase was that Tim really did go all out and actually performed a lot longer than he was expected to do. If you are looking for a friendly, professional and a truly talented musician then look no further as Tim certainly fits the bill. Tim once again thank you for your services as a musician and you certainly made a positive contribution to our wedding, it helped make the day so special.  Dean & Sam  Dean & Samantha Readman, 2015

We would just like to say a huge Thankyou to Tim for making our wedding day so special, not only are you a lovely, kind man but you are a fantastic sax player, you made our day perfect.  Thanks Tim from the bottom of my heart xx Kirsten    Dave & Kirsten Storrie, 2016   (I was asked to perform at this wedding by the charity, Gift of a Wedding)

Tim, We want to say a massive thank you to you for your wonderful music at our wedding. The saxophone is very special to Rachel and i and it was just the most magically special touch to our day. Playing while we were greeting our guests into the wedding breakfast was brilliant it gave a great first impression and the choice of songs were fab! Also by playing for part of the wedding breakfast it created a lovely atmosphere. All our guest made lovely comments about you they really enjoyed the experience especially our little flower girl. I'm so glad we asked you to play for our evening guests so they didn't miss out! Thank you for your great repertoire, professionalism, personality and co-operation. It was a great decision to book you and made our day extra special. Thank you, Dee & Rache.  Dee & Rachel Bennie-Marshall, 2016

Hi Tim. I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for your amazing contribution to mine and my hubby's wedding day. Not only did you provide the most awesome acoustic setting but you were also a real gent to my many demands. Thank you furthermore for dedicating your whole weekend to us, staying over both the Friday and Saturday night at Newcastle to aid my peace of mind. I am sorry I changed my mind with song choices more times than I bet we've had hot dinners but you were accommodating throughout. I want to especially thank you for obtaining the song sheets for songs not in your repertoire, Meatloaf's 'Bat Out of Hell' and 'I Would Do Anything For Love' totally made my night. I know my guests were not expecting to have a saxophonist playing at our wedding I have heard many great things from them about your music, especially your Disney songs. Hearing you play 'Kiss the Girl' as I entered the ceremony room will be a long lasting and dear memory for me. To anyone considering having a saxophonist, Tim Clarke is the only option for you. His skill is magical, beautiful and second to none. He is also a real gent and a pleasure to have had at our wedding. Thank you Saxo-Man x x x Hayley and Sean Stevenson.  Hayley & Sean Stevenson, 2015

Just want to say a massive thank you, Tim.  You did an amazing job, everyone said how good you were. Even before the day you were thorough and attentive to what we wanted.  We had a fantastic day and you defo provided 5* service. I will be recommending you to all my friends.  Thanks again, and happy new year!Bx   Barbara & Gerry Keane, 2015

Dear Tim, Thank you so much for playing at our wedding you were amazing and added a huge amount of fun and charm to our reception. Everyone commented how fabulous you were and we had such a wonderful day celebrating. Much love SJ and Chris   Sarah-Jane & Chris Denny, 2015

Tim, thank you so much for playing your saxophone on our wedding day. Saxophone is my favourite instrument so when we met you at a wedding fair I decided there and then that I needed it to be a part of my day. Your playing really did make the day special, it added that finishing touch to make the day perfect. Getting to choose songs before hand made sure that it was personal to Luke and I. Everyone that attended the wedding thought you were an amazing musician and we couldn't agree more - almost 2 weeks on and we're still receiving comments about you! No wonder people applauded you! Emma-Jayne x   Emma-Jayne & Luke Byers, 2015

Also round of applause for Tim Clarke who played the saxophone amazingly, the guests loved you and so did we - it topped the day off nicely, just sad we didn't get chance to have our picture taken :(    Shelley & Ryan Wilkinson, 2015

Tim, many, many thanks for providing my daughter's wedding with such superb music. Your presence during the ceremony, in church, added that special touch to an already beautiful setting. Following that, the music played outside the hotel while the guests enjoyed pre-meal drinks was unmissable. Many of my friends approached me during the afternoon and since to say how fabulous they thought your music was. The range of songs played made for a very relaxed atmosphere, great for people to mingle enjoy themselves. I would absolutely recommend anyone thinking of booking entertainment for a wedding, that the music, you provide is perfect for a wedding venue. Thank you, once again, Paul Merritt   Paul Merritt (Wedding: Father of the Bride), 2015

Thank you so much Tim Clarke for being a part of our big day! The music you played was fantastic, every guest commented on how good you were and some have taken your cards and are looking at booking you for future events. You really did contribute so much in making our day a perfect one! Thank you ever so much, Mr & Mr Griffiths.  Matthew & Rebecca Griffiths, 2015

We wanted something a little different for our wedding and we thought a sax player would be a great idea. A friend recommended Tim The Saxman. We checked out his website and thought it was a great idea. Tim came round to our house and offered a few suggestions. He had a great selection on his play list and offered to play just about anything. He came again and practised a duet with a singer. On the day he played during the ceremony and drinks reception. He did an amazing job and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Thanks Tim. Dino & Estelle.  Dino & Estelle Reardon, 2015

Hi Tim, We just wanted to say a massive thank you for an amazing job on Saturday. You made a beautiful day just perfect with your amazing sax.

I know you received a lot of requests and managed to fulfil them all - even when it mean't playing longer than planned !!

Thank you so much for playing on our special day, you were absolutely fantastic. We had so many comments from the guests who thought you did an amazing job and created such a nice atmosphere. You played the perfect mix of songs and genres and our only regret for the entire day was that we wish we had asked you to play for longer! To anyone contemplating having a saxophonist at their wedding I cannot recommend Tim enough, from start to finish he was so professional and was even willing to go the extra mile to learn new songs to suit many of my awkward requests!! It was lovely to meet you and thank you so much for all your hard work at our wedding. We will definitely be passing your details onto friends and relatives in the future. Thanks again, Emma and Steve. Emma & Steve Alderson, 2014

We just want to say thank you sooo much for making our special day that bit more perfect with your amazing performance at our wedding!! All our family and friends as well as ourselves thought you provided and set the perfect atmosphere and everyone enjoyed it greatly. With a venue like that the weather was always going to help but with the lovely gardens and your performance it was above and beyond anything we could have hoped for. Be only too happy to recommend you to family and friends (although don't think we would need to for those that were there to hear you in person). Look forward to seeing you/hearing you in the future - Danielle and Craig (mr and mrs Mawson). Danni Mawson, 2014

Tim played his saxophone during the time slot between guests arriving at our Wedding Reception and sitting down for the meal. It created the perfect ambience as he played a wide range of beautiful tracks which were perfect for just such an occasion. Many of the guests commented and complimented Tim on his playing and we were more than delighted too! It has played a part in our wonderful memories of the day. As a result therefore, we would not hesitate in recommending Tim for a wedding or indeed any other similar occasion. Heather Marshall, 2006
