"Hi James I don't think I ever wrote to thank you for the great job you did at Kyley and Christopher's wedding at Rowton Hall, Chester on 12th August. It was a massive success and everybody mentioned how well the evening went (dance floor always full, good music, great entertainer etc). People were so impressed that my wife Carol's sister Marie would like to book you to do her wedding (second marriage) next July. I think she will be contacting you but I thought I would give you a heads up because it would be in the Lake District (probably only an hour or so from Wigan). Not sure of exact date and location but it would be excellent if you were happy to do the booking. Thanks again for 12th Aug and hope to see you once more in the Lakes." Best regards Stewart
