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!

Very busy liasing with brides and grooms - things are looking better with each day that passes. Please do not hesitate to call or message me if you would like any advice about music for your wedding or event!

Well, things are starting to feel much more positive! I am still helping couples with any changes they need to make with dates and ensembles, but weddings and bookings are looking more steady and looking as though they are going to go ahead. There is quite a bit of music arranging to do and some composition work as well.

Stay safe and have a lovely weekend!

Weddings in 2021 / 2022
If you have booked a String Quartet and would like to change to a Trio, Duo or Solo Violin due to any restrictions, we can do that for you.
Equally, if you currently have a Solo Violin booked and nearer the time you can increase your wedding party, you can also change to a Duo, Trio or Quartet.

Testimonial
"Sue was incredible her music made us smile and fill our hearts with wonderful memories!
She was professional from start to finish and I only wished I could have adsorbed and spent more time with her as I was amazed by the music filling up the room.

It was very important to me that I had Sue there playing on our special day, and I’m so glad I did. That was a little something special for me to have and hold within myself, music is everything, music is emotion and I felt it with Sue playing.

The talent this woman has and her incredible attitude hand in hand makes her the best woman for the job.

Don’t ever hesitate on booking this lady because I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
Sue complimented our wedding day and we were honoured to have her play for us.
Thank you so much," Aimee & Callum

Love conquers all.
Even though the news is still dark I am feeling very positive about the future. In the last few days I have spoken and been in touch with some lovely brides and couples. It is also reassuring to see the diary getting dates in 2022 and 2023. Tomorrow we start arranging some new music requests!

How do I pick a wedding song?
It can be a song that holds a special meaning for you.
You can find lists of the top weddings songs all over the internet, but remember this is your special day and your own story.

Whatever the song is, we can arrange it for you. We can even record it if required, so you can place it in your wedding video.

If you want something totally unique, we can compose a bespoke piece of music based on your names or initials.

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.

The wheels are turning again, new song arrangments and some new re-scheduled wedding dates.

Wedding Planning Tips
When Should You Hire Your Preferred Wedding Supplier?
The more you want a specific supplier, the earlier they should be booked.
So if you really want that celebrant or string quartet you need to book them as close to a year in advance. This is the same for your photographer, makeup artists, florists and cake maker.

What a year this has been! Just had to postpone a wedding for the third time. Our thoughts are with engaged couples everywhere and also with all the talented and hard-working wedding suppliers. Love will conquer all as it always does and soon the smiles and memories will return.
