"Terri and Alex played at my wedding (April 2017). They were highly professional and both are incredibly talented musicians. All my guests were commenting on how amazing the music was. Terri and Alex made our wedding day so special and performed the requested songs perfectly. Would highly recommend" - Shannon Louise "Terri and Alex played at our wedding over the weekend and they were absolutely amazing! They were so easy to communicate with prior to the wedding and were exactly what we had in mind! Our guests loved the chilled out acoustic music between ceremony and reception and then danced along all night! We've had so many people comment about how great the music was, and have already had friends ask for their details for their own upcoming events! Could not recommend these guys highly enough!" - Courtney Hill "Terri and Alex played at my partners 30th Birthday Party on the 11th of February. Their communication prior to the event was great - they learnt 2 new songs as per our request and even sent me a sample video of their progress throughout the week! They arrived early to set up and were ready to go before our guests arrived. As soon as they started playing their first song I knew I had made the right choice booking them - the quality of their performance was solid throughout the whole night to the point that we didn't want them to finish and extended their booking at the last minute. They were professional and organized as well as being confident and relaxed - We will definitely recommend them to our friends and family as well as booking them again for all future events. Thank you Terri and Alex!!!" - Kazzira Lee Paxtyn
"On Saturday the 7th of January we celebrated our Wedding and were so fortunate to have Terri and Alex perform for our guests! They were absolutely amazing on the day and so easy to work with. They started just before our ceremony and stayed all night until the end at 11pm. They even learnt two new songs for us, to perform during the ceremony and WOW - it was just perfect! Their style completely suited our day and the venue, and I can't count the number of comments we had from family, friends and the venue managers on you both and how amazing you were! Thank you so much for being a part of our day - wouldn't have been the same without you!" - Ben Johnson
"Sensational! Highly recommend for any occasion. Alex & Terri's acoustic sets were an important part of our whole wedding and they were absolutely perfect. They were/are also hugely helpful, caring, professional and a pleasure to deal with. Thanks again guys" - Lucas Wyatt "Little Big Words were amazing and helped to make our day extra special by learning the song 'Somewhere over the rainbow' for our aisle song and made it unique. It was a 'wow' moment as I walked down the aisle and put a lump in my now husbands throat. They then played on to entertain our guests while we went off for photos. This really helped to create a great vibe at our reception. Thanks to Terri and Alex who were amazing the whole way through Xx totally recommend them to anyone having a wedding or special occasion." - Lucy Gardner "We were fortunate enough to have little big words perform at our engagement party on the weekend! They were absolutely amazing and are extremely talented at what they do! We have had nothing but positive feedback from all our guests. Terri and Alex are truly wonderful people and were soo easy to work with! They have a variety of music to choose from and nothing is too hard! I would highly recommend little big words to anyone and will definitely be using them again! Thank you soo much! You guys completed our wonderful afternoon!? - Matt Maylin
"We celebrated our wedding on Sunday the 27th of November. Terri and Alex were amazing on the day and in the lead up to the wedding. They sent us audio of them singing to help decide our aisle song and they tweaked their 500miles song for our bridal dance and sent us audio for us to practice with. Our bridal dance was a huge highlight and their music made our day feel like a lazy Sunday in the sun. They are truly beautiful people who are very relaxed and happy to help in anyway possible. They even stayed back so we could finish our speeches using their microphone. We have had comments from our guests about their amazing vocals." - Lacey Radford
"Thank you Little Big Words for playing at our wedding! We had an amazing night and have had lots of comments about how good you were. My only complaint is that time went way too quickly and I didn't even get to dance or chat with you. You guys are amazing, never give up xx" - Rhiannon Wells "Terri and Alex played at our wedding in February 2016 at Waverley Estate. We booked them very soon after hearing them at an open house rehearsal. They blew us away with their talent! We wanted them to play as an acoustic duo for our ceremony and for canapés after. They learnt 5 new songs for us so we could make our ceremony extra personal! We were so happy that we hired them for our wedding day. They were professional, prompt and have amazing musical talent. Thanks guys!!" - Erin McCusker
"Terri & Alex from Little Big Words provided the most wonderful atmosphere and vibe at our wedding ceremony and pre drinks at our wedding in January. From the very beginning, Little Big Words were so easy to work with, wanting to provide the very best!! All of our guests were able to relax and enjoy their acoustic beats before the reception and all commented on how great they were!! Thankyou so much!!" - Alice Crabbe
"Alex and Terri were made our special day that bit more personal learning and performing two songs we requested. They are incredibly talented and beautiful people to match. Couldn't recommend them any more! Thankyou from the bottoms of our heart Peter and Cassie xx" - Cassandra Obst "We had Terri & Alex play at our wedding in May during our ceremony and pre dinner drinks. It was absolutely perfect!! From the minute we came across their video on the internet and heard their amazing voices, we knew we had to have them play. We just fell in love with their music. Terri & Alex invited us to meet with them so they could play a few songs just to make sure they were what we were looking for, but we were ready to book them long before we met in person!! Each and every song they play is incredible. Their cover of 500 miles by The Proclaimers is absolutely beautiful. Both Terri & Alex are professional and very passionate about their amazing talent. We look forward to the next gig they play so we can go and enjoy their fantastic music!! Thank you so much for the beautiful memory you have left us on our wedding day!!" - Kate Rasera "Terri & Alex where awesome!! They played for our ceremony and reception and where more than happy to learn any song we wished. They where so good our guests refused to let them leave and they where happy to stay an extra hour!! Can't recommend these guys enough!!!" - Luke Richards "Fantastic! We found Terri & Alex only a few weeks before our wedding, and are so glad we did. They were easy to deal with at a time when we were stressing about everything coming together. The music set a fabulous atmosphere pre-ceremony and kicked off the celebrations afterwards. Our guests commented on how wonderful they were, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Little Big Words to anyone. Thanks again." - Mahlah Beaumont "Such a wonderful band great to deal with! Went above and beyond to help make our wedding day perfect. Definitely recommend booking Alex & Terri xx" - Amber Richards
