Wedding Quartet for Devon and Cornwall from Classical Strings

String Quartet

The String Quartet perform timeless uplifting classics, through to Sue’s original arrangements of pop, rock and film soundtracks. Music from musicals, funky folk tunes and cool jazz are all part of our set!

String Trio

The Classical Strings Trio comprises of two violins and a cello and is slightly more compact than the Quartet, so if space is a problem, but you would like more sound than a solo or duo, then this option is ideal.

String Duo

Featuring the violin and cello, this combination is ideal for performing in a small space. The violin melodies are supported by the depth of the cello sound and creates a well-balanced performance.

Solo Violin

From romantic classics, upbeat folk and haunting Celtic themes, the gentle melodic sounds of a solo violin lends itself well to small intimate gatherings of people, especially if the venue is a small room.

Founded in 1995 and led by professional violinist Sue Aston as featured on BBC1, Radio 2, 3 and 4 and Sky TV

Classical Strings are led by professional violinist and composer Sue Aston, who has worked with some of the world’s top musicians from the classical, folk and pop world. Her music videos have been broadcast on Classic FM and Sky TV, and have received over 2 million views on YouTube.

Classical Strings perform regularly at music festivals and are available for recording session work.

Each booking includes a FREE arrangement of your favourite song for strings…

If you have a favourite piece of music which you would like to be played on your special day, we can arrange it especially for you. We have recently arranged music by Adele, Jason Mraz, Charlene Soraia, Akon, Abba and film music such as Star Wars and Jurassic Park!

The Benefits of Booking a String Quartet For Your Wedding Ceremony Entrance

Faster, slower - how do I walk down the aisle at the right speed?

Do you worry that your Flower Girl might dawdle down the aisle, or you're not sure how quickly your bridesmaids will walk, perhaps delaying your own entrance?

If you are using a Spotify playlist, you might have a problem; your Flower Girl might be walking down the aisle to your special song instead of you!

When you book Classical Strings you have no need to worry at all. With over 25 years of experience as live musicians, we seamlessly adjust the music and tempo to adapt to any situation

Exciting news!
Classical Strings will be releasing our second single on February 14th 2022.

The song ‘Someone You Loved’ (originally by Lewis Capaldi) is performed by the Classical Strings Quartet, and the song was arranged for strings by myself.

This is the follow up to last year’s debut single, ‘Red Right Hand’ from the Peaky Blinders TV Show.

‘Someone You Loved’ is one of our most requested songs for weddings, so it felt right to pick Valentine’s Day as the release day!

As a professional musician when you play in a wedding ceremony you are not just creating music.
You are changing the atmosphere of the room that music is played in.
You are helping to join together the thoughts and emotions of all the wedding guests in that room. The music played in the ceremony helps tell the story, a story about love, commitment and being together.
So whenever you hear that music again, you are transported back to that magical time.

Merry Christmas to all our friends, Brides & Grooms, Brides to Be and Wedding Suppliers
What a year it has been!
It started off full of worry and then turned into our busiest year ever. On some days we had multiple string ensembles playing at weddings at the same time.

2022 and 2023 are looking similar already it has been just wonderful.

We also have a new website, lots of videos to edit and upload but some other exciting things like another Classical Strings single release and an ever increasing playlist.

Top Reasons to Book a String Quartet for your Wedding

2. Live music goes with the flow.
If you're using a recorded soundtrack, you and your wedding party have to keep the pace of the music as you make your way down the aisle. But a String Quartet (or any of our string ensembles) can be flexible. We can adjust our playing speed or even repeat a section of music to accommodate you and your bridal procession.

Top Reasons to Book a String Quartet for Your Wedding

1. String Quartets are very portable and environmentally friendly.

Your wedding Ceremony might only need the String Quartet for an hour but we can quickly move and be ready for your drinks reception. Strings Quartets do not need any electrical power either just 4 chairs to sit on!

We are also very flexible and if you have a very small wedding or venue we can be booked as a Trio or Duo or even with a singer!
