“Sarah played at my Nephew’s wedding and added something very special indeed to their beautiful day. It was so easy communicating with her before the big day and I was so impressed with how she accommodated
our requests and was able to perform all of our choices, even playing an original composition
written for the bride and groom by a composer within the family.
Sarah is an amazing musician and everyone commented on her expertise and also her wonderful spirit. She was full of joy and her happiness was perfectly matched to the atmosphere of the day. As she played, she smiled and engaged with the guests. Sarah is a true professional. We were all thrilled that Sarah was part of this wedding. The bride and groom were delighted too. I wholeheartedly recommend Sarah for your event. She is amazing.“
“Having what was effectively a large summer garden party for our wedding, we decided that we wanted some live background music. Having come across Sarah, once I met her, there was simply no choosing anyone else. Sarah was the ultimate professional and took the time to speak with my husband and I about what music we liked, what we wanted and what our expectations were. Sarah got everything perfect and required very little from us on the day as she had done all of her research. We had lots of wonderful comments about the music which was lovely to hear, and I have a big thank you to Sarah for that.
If I was hosting another party or recommending someone for a wedding, Sarah would be it.”

“We had the pleasure of meeting Sarah at The Hilton Brighton wedding Fayre in 2015 & after hearing her play we knew we had to book Sarah to play at our wedding on the Brighton Bandstand in August 2015.
Sarah helped make our wedding the most amazing day.
We met before the wedding to discuss playlists & Sarah even took on the challenge
of learning one of our favourite songs, Caribbean Blue by Enya. On our wedding day Sarah was amazing & played as backing music to one of our bridesmaids singing whilst we signed the register. We would highly recommend Sarah to anyone & if you are looking for a very talented violinist look no further.”
-Sarah and Lee
“Sarah played the violin beautifully at our wedding in October. I could not recommend her highly enough.
She responded to the initial enquiry swiftly and arranged a date and time to meet us at the wedding venue.
Her repertoire was extensive and she went out of her way to learn a piece that we particularly wanted
- Sussex by the Sea. She thought to dress to match in with the colour scheme, set up calmly and efficiently
and her playing was just exquisite. I cannot thank you enough Sarah.”
-Rebecca and Stuart
“We first met Sarah several years ago at a Wedding Fair and was immediately impressed with Sarah’s sound and her presentation. A year on with my daughter’s wedding booked we contacted Sarah and booked her for the day.
On meeting Sarah to discuss the choice of music, anything that was not on her accomplished list she offered to do her best to learn. On the day the gentle sound of the violin just added that little extra magic, the sound was beautiful. Sarah played for the ceremony and after while photos and drinks were being enjoyed.
The sound was melodic and was gently carried around, it added an element of enchantment.
We received many complimentary comments and if anyone wants a
little extra magic to a special day book Sarah. Thank you."
“Sarah was brilliant on the day of my daughter’s wedding. She played for the arrival of the guests,
and the music ranged from classic to modern. As my daughter walked down the aisles, the gorgeous sound of
"Paradise" by Coldplay was beautifully played by Sarah.
All through the build-up Sarah was in touch with us and keeping us updated with the music list and gave her snippets of her playing the music requested. Booking Sarah will be the best thing for your wedding, birthday or any celebration.
You will not be disappointed.”
“We are so glad we chose Sarah to play at our wedding, from first meeting her at a wedding fair we knew she’d be perfect for our wedding. She came to visit us before the day to run through what music we wanted and even learnt a new piece for us. The playing on the day was just stunning, created a beautiful atmosphere and our guests are still talking about it to this day. Thoroughly recommended. “
-Emma and James
“We booked Sarah after hearing her play at a wedding fair. She was a wonderful addition to our ceremony and we had so many positive comments from guests. Sarah was very professional and helpful beforehand and even learned several pieces of music from our favourite films for us, which gave the ceremony and extra personal touch. We would highly recommend Sarah – Thank you!”
-Isabel and Michael
"We got married at Ashdown Park Hotel on the 18th May 2014, we loved the idea of having a violinist perform
during our ceremony so made contact with Sarah.
We were delighted that as part of the process Sarah came and met with us at the venue, and played a piece for us to hear. We decided to have her play as I walked down the aisle as well as during the service as we wanted it to not feel rushed, adding some live music helps fill out the time and gives everyone a chance to absorb the moment!
Sarah helped us to select the pieces that we went for, and also assisted with the timing to make sure
that it fit perfectly with the bridal entrance.
She is incredibly professional, polite and cheerful, and I would recommend her to any discerning couple
looking to make their day extra special and memorable"
-Michelle ad Chris
“We were very lucky to have found Sarah to play at our wedding.
Not only is she extremely talented, being able to play both traditional and modern music her approach to our important day was very professional including everything from our preferred play list to sound testing at the church.
We would highly recommend Sarah to anyone thinking of using them for their wedding or any special occasion.”
-Rachel and Simon
“We had Sarah playing Violin at our wedding. She worked with me on an untraditional song to walk down the aisle to… Dancing Queen! It added extra magic to our special day! She played a mixture of classical and pop sings afterwards while we had drinks. We would totally recommend Sarah and her beautiful violin playing.”
-Saran and Dave
“We had the pleasure of Sarah playing at our wedding ceremony on 18/6/16. She is truly talented and having her play made our day even more fabulous! There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when she played 1000 Years as we signed the wedding register and we walked out to One Love which she also played beautifully. I can’t recommend Sarah highly enough – she is so talented and accommodating, she made our day. Many thanks.”

"Whilst working at the residential home I used to work at in Hove, every Thursday Sarah used to come play her violin for the residents. Coming from a violin background when I was younger whilst playing in Junior School
- I wasn't the only one who loved her music.
Every time she used to visit, the residents would always look forward to her beautiful playing and were always excited to see her. She would put a smile on everyone’s face and even make the residents dance whilst playing - it was amazing to see them so happy and content with such a beautiful instrument and such a beautiful violinist.
Sarah was such a credit to our home and always made me excited for working on a Thursday due to our
shared love of the Sound of Music. (Which I always made her play!)
One of our residents who would usually sit in a chair would sometimes enjoy it so much that he would stand up from his seat, shout and dance in a circle in the middle of the room and another would constantly be smiling and waving her arms around, purely because of how energetic and brilliant Sarah was.
Sarah would always bring such delightful music to the home and was also an amazing friend to work with.
Seeing her do something she loved whilst making our residents so happy would just make my Thursday morning."
-Billy Plank - Vallance Gardens Care Hom
“All of our residents love it when Sarah plays for us.
She has such a friendly and relaxed approach and puts a smile on even the grumpiest of faces!”
-Amy Marchant - Irene House Care Home
“Sarah has performed a few times for us and is always very well received. She has a variety of songs that she plays with something for everyone, and bring loads of energy with her as she sings along, does a few jigs, and has some lovely stories and interesting facts about the pieces of music she plays.
She always has time to chat to some residents after the show (and many during) and happily answers any questions they may have. Our residents look forward to seeing her every month."
-Elaine - Dean Wood Care Home
“The Sussex Wildlife Trust was delighted when Sarah Milner agreed to play at our Musical Trail - an event enjoyed by over 100 people who were 'surprised' by hidden musicians placed at secret locations around the nature reserve at Woods Mill near Henfield. To hear live music played in the open air is an experience not to be missed and Sarah delighted our audience with her violin music. Sarah supported the Sussex Wildlife Trust again when she attended the then Springwatch Festival (now Nature Festival) at Stanmer Park in Brighton - playing to an appreciative audience of all ages.
A musical event with Sarah is a pleasure to attend - her wonderful playing, her friendly and welcoming manner and her absolute professionalism in choosing just the right music to play to entertain her audience.”
-Amanda Solomon - Sussex Wildlife Trust
“The Royal Air Force Association at Shoreham have had the pleasure of being entertained by
Sarah at their monthly branch meetings many times.
They always look forward to the return of this very talented violinist and her very varied performance.”
-Sue Gullen - RAFA Shoreham Branch
'We had Sarah Milner to play her violin for our Dad's 80th Birthday party. Sarah took great care over arranging her part in our special day, playing a selection of jigs and reels, some classical pieces and some lovely Irish songs to sing along to. From 80 to 4 years old, everyone either danced around Sarah as she played, or sat listening and enjoying
the happy atmosphere Sarah created. We can't wait to hear her again."
-Joey Clark of Southwick
"I would just like to say that we were delighted with the performance that you gave us as the cabaret at our dance. We were a little apprehensive of having a violinist as an entertainer but these proved to be totally unfounded and the feedback from the dancers showed that the selection of pieces to play managed to satisfy the variety of tastes amongst the audience. As dancers, music and its presentation is important and to gain their praise is indeed an accolade."
