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

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.

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!

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.
