String Quartet, Trio, Duo and Solo Violinist for Weddings and Events in Cornwall, Devon

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.

String Quartet for Weddings in Cornwall and Devon

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 for Weddings in Cornwall and Devon

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 for Weddings in Cornwall and Devon

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.

Wedding Violinist Cornwall and Devon

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 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!

Thank you and welcome to all our new followers.
Thank you to the new couples who have booked us for their weddings in 2020 and 2021.

Waiting For The Story To Begin
I love this part. In front of me is a vision of pure magic as the wedding planner and other talented people make their final adjustments.
The guests are taking their seats, and the wedding ceremony room is full of smiles, anticipation and, of course, love.
The groom is already here, and he looks nervously around to see his beautiful bride about to make her entrance.
This moment is the beginning of their own love story as they become man and wife. I always feel so lucky and honoured to be here, to be adding their chosen music, a final touch of magic to a beautiful moment.

Now you really can have your own wedding soundtrack. Your own wedding theme composed just for you.

As a published composer my original music was already being requested for weddings in the UK, USA, Canada, Japan and other parts of Europe, so this fits in so well as one of our key new services.

Wedding Planners - this is an exciting new service to offer your wedding clients, please message for more details.

How it works:
I talk to the bride and groom via video link and ask about their favourite songs or movies to get an idea of the kind of music they would like me to compose for them.
I then also take their names or initials and write this into the actual music, also helping to create a piece of music unique to them.
Perhaps they have written a poem or a song themselves? I can set the poem to music or add an instrumental arrangement to their song.
The average length of the composition is 2.5 minutes

The music can be professionally recorded and I can arrange the sheet music so that any musicians (piano/strings/voice) can perform it live at the wedding or event in any part of the world.

This photo is from a marriage proposal I did at Landsend in Cornwall.
The sun was going down and the 'bride to be' had no idea what was going to happen.
I played 'All I Ask of You' from Phantom of the Opera on solo violin...and then he asked her to marry him.
She said yes! and I played 'Your Song' by Elton John as the happy couple celebrated.

New Service for Weddings Around the World from Classical Strings
When you are ensuring that everything from the wedding dress, the cake, the flowers, stationery and look of your wedding is going to represent your unique personality, why would you want to use the same music as somebody else?
@sueastonmusic can compose a unique bespoke piece of music for your wedding or event, and dedicate it to you!

How it works:
I talk to you via video link and ask about your favourite songs or movies to get an idea of the kind of music you would like me to compose for you.
I then also take your names or initials and write this into the actual music, also helping to create a piece of music unique to you.
Perhaps you have written a poem or a song yourself? I can set the poem to music or add an instrumental arrangement to your song.
The average length of the composition is 2.5 minutes

The music can be professionally recorded and I can arrange the sheet music so that any musicians (piano/strings/voice) can perform it live at the wedding or event in any part of the world.

A professional recording could be made by us to be played at the event if we are not performing it ourselves, or the recording could be a gift for an anniversary or christening present etc.

As a professional composer, my music has already been used at weddings and funerals in the UK, USA, Europe, Canada, and Japan.

I also regularly compose music for my patrons on www.patreon.com and have also written music in the memory of a loved one.

We are back after taking a few days off to sort out our new single release 'Red Right Hand' and create a video to promote it. This will appear first via IGTV on @sueastonmusic
Our first wedding of 2020 is just a couple of weeks away and bookings for all our string ensembles are busy with a double booking for solo violin and string quartet coming in yesterday. I also have a video call with a Bride and Groom later today to discuss the music for their wedding ceremony in May.
This is an exciting time for us and our global wedding service will also be announced next week.

Happy New Year to all our followers, friends and suppliers.

As Christmas gets ever nearer, thoughts turn to family and friends. However for many couples this is also the season for wedding proposals, engagement rings and a lot of planning!
From my perspective if there is any music playing when the question is popped, that will be the song we arrange for the wedding ceremony!

Lost in the moment…
This photo was taken at a wedding at @boconnocestate in Cornwall. We were just loving adding the music and soundtrack to the day.
The wedding ceremony had been beautiful, and everyone was relaxing into the next part of the day. Guests were on the lawn enjoying refreshments and the weather and surroundings were gorgeous!
The wedding photographer was getting the last group shots of the Bride and Bridesmaids - everything was just perfect.

Each wedding is so much more than simply a booking. I treasure these moments and look back on them and feel honoured to have had the opportunity to have added some magic to the day.

One of my favourite Christmas songs is ‘I Believe In Father Christmas’ by Greg Lake. Here is a short clip on solo violin!
Is everyone ready for Christmas?

I love playing outside, feeling the music weave in and out of the joyful chatter of the wedding guests and the sounds of nature.
With the growing popularity in Barn and Farm Weddings and the increased awareness in eco and sustainable weddings, a string ensemble like a Quartet or Solo Violin is the perfect green choice.
