Background: On 31 December 2018, Klaus played for the wedding of Kelly Louise Ward and Robert Owen Jones. On 1 January, Klaus received the following text message:

Happy New Year, Klaus, and thank you ever so much for your beautiful music. We had the most wonderful day. Please send me a link for me to write a review.


On 9 March 2019, Klaus received the following email:

Hello Klaus,

Rob and I are back from our extended honeymoon; we disconnected from email, text and calls to be fully present and enjoy our once in a life-time experience; as you know, we both travel with work so it was important to disconnect for once. Apologies for the delay but it really does only feel like yesterday for us, especially as we've just come back from our honeymoon.

Here is your testimonial:

When I first contacted Klaus I did so thinking he was based regionally to me and my fiancé who were getting married in Leeds. Despite being located in London Klaus was happy to discuss playing at our wedding; in fact he was genuinely excited to do so, which was an absolute pleasure. He thought nothing of traveling from London to Leeds and gave me all the reassurance I needed that he would arrive, not only on time, but the day before our wedding to ensure nothing caused me any stress or concern on the day.

From our very first call Klaus was enthusiastic and full of ideas, he even played his organ down the phone for me and sent us lots of links including potential music choices, including referrals as well as recordings of his own music.

Two months prior to the wedding Klaus and I met at Leeds Cathedral so he could familiarise himself with the organ; again, presenting me with many options and ideas for us to consider. Klaus made the whole experience very personal and pleasurable from start to finish. He is extremely passionate about what he does and I'll never forget the sheer joy and anticipation I felt when I heard the first chords of the bridal march or how I felt walking down the aisle to my future husband. The music throughout was beautifully played and what could be more joyous than walking back down the aisle arm in arm with your husband, followed by your friends and family to the majestically played wedding march.

Our wedding day was perfect in every way and Klaus provided us with the perfect soundtrack; I'm sure I'll never hear the bridal march or wedding march without getting goose bumps and feeling all glowy inside, thank you Klaus.

Mr and Mrs Jones x

Kind regards
