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.

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