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!

This week I played solo violin for a wedding where the playlist was created from a mixture of my own compositions and music from our Cornish Celtic Collection. I played 'Bonnie Lass O'Fyvie' for the entry music, and the Poldark theme for the lovely couple to walk out to.
It was a magical wedding that took place in the wooded area of Potager Garden. It was a beautiful ceremony, with lots of flowers and autumnal colours.

Really excited to have finished work on a special music arrangement of 'Omen' by The Prodigy! I think it's my most challenging arrangement for strings yet - but it's sounding fabulous, and we are looking forward to playing it in a few days time at Trevenna Barns with the Classical Strings Trio!

The music from a String Quartet (or another string ensemble) is there throughout the most important parts of the day, from the wedding ceremony and then on to the relaxed drinks reception.
It never overpowers the conversations, but creates a magical backdrop, forever entwined with the memories of each and every guest.

I am arranging new songs for weddings every day this week and most of next week as well! Plus, we also have four weddings next week.

None of the special music arrangements I create for couples are purchased online, they are arranged by me, scored specifically for strings and are unique to Classical Strings.

Although I have been quiet on social media I have been very busy elsewhere. I played at a beautiful wedding the other day (photos and videos to follow) but it was also my own wedding anniversary. It was 30 years ago this week that I married Phil @geniuslocimedia
We had a lovely break at @budockveanhotel and wish to thank everyone for their well wishes.

I am so honoured that one of the most popular Celtic music requests for weddings is one of my own compositions, 'The Homecoming'

This clip is actually of The Classical Strings Quartet performing it at a concert for the Porthleven Festival a few years back.

The music has been used in weddings around the world, and is now an integral part of our Cornish Celtic repertoire, which is a unique playlist of romantic music available exclusively from Classical Strings.

The full version is available to watch on YouTube.

The Classical Strings Quartet performed yesterday at a beautiful wedding at Trevenna Barns in Cornwall.
We played for the Wedding Ceremony and the drinks reception. I created a special arrangement especially for the bride's mum - 'I Dreamed a Dream', from Les Miserables.
