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!

Love Will Find A Way
We may have been quiet on here but behind the scenes we have been busy moving all our affected wedding bookings to future dates. We have also been looking at what we can do during this period of staying home. Some of these ideas include virtual weddings where I can turn up via a video link.
We are also arranging and recording lots of new music and starting our first unique composition for a couple based on their initials and interests.

Also, expect a lot more videos to help bring some positivity into these challenging times. My composer account @sueastonmusic will also be joining in.

The perfect soundtrack to your perfect day...
I so love putting the music together and talking to the Bride and Groom. Their excitement, enthusiam and listening to their story helps me pull the soundtrack together for them. Many times after talking to them we also include a song or two for their parents as well!

Your Wedding, Your Own Special Music Composed Just for You…
(Available for Couples around the world)

When you are ensuring that everything from the 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?

I can compose a unique 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.

There is something very magical about arranging a special song for a Bride & Groom and seeing their faces when they recognise it during the Wedding Day

This photo was taken at a Wedding Preview. The location was @pentilliecastleweddings (which is an absolutely beautiful venue)
What I like to do is use the laptop to show engaged couples the different string ensembles that we have available. We have over 40 videos to choose from and 80 professional sound files. This allows me to talk to the couples and show them what we can do rather than them waiting for us to finish playing. If they want to hear something specific I have my violin with me so they can hear me play as well.

I love the popular trends of Rustic and Bohemian Weddings.
It makes me feel very much at home with my background of composing music

The love in the room weaves its way around the guests and the musicians and we get ready for the arrival of the Bride and Groom. It feels so exciting to be creating a personal soundtrack for memories that will last a lifetime.

A short video clip from ’Someone You Loved’ by Lewis Capaldi played on solo violin. I have also arranged this for String Quartet, Trio and Duo.
This is already very popular with weddings.

Wedding Tips For Brides
One of the questions I get asked the most, is how do I walk down the aisle to the music? What happens if I get there too soon, or if the music finishes before I arrive?
You have nothing to worry about! The music fits around you. We play the music until you are in position, and then naturally fade and stop. This is one of the advantages of using live musicians instead of a CD. The music fits in with you and your guests, just like the opening of the most romantic film ever made. Our job is to make your nerves fade away as you walk down the aisle in your own time.

Thanks to the fabulous @elizabeth_melvin_photography for the gorgeous photo!

I am getting ready to meet a bride and groom to discuss the music to be played at their wedding. I do this often, and sometimes it might be via video, but many times it is face to face. It is good to do this if possible, as they feel that they know me before the big day arrives!
We can discuss their special song arrangement, talk about timings, and whether we need to move locations during the day.

The Classical Strings Duo
Featuring the violin and cello, this combination is ideal for performing in a small space. The song melodies are played by the violin are supported by the depth of the cello sound and create a well balanced performance. The Classical Strings Duo is perfect for small gatherings, barn weddings, outdoor weddings, Boho Weddings, wedding ceremonies and is very eco friendly!
String Duo Review
"Sue and Becky played for our daughter Rebekahs wedding to Steve at Lower barns. They were fantastic. It was a perfect choice to have this style of music and everyone was delighted to be graced with the talent these ladies shared. It certainty makes you open up to a style that you may pass by otherwise. Rebekah and Steve travelled to Cornwall before the wedding to meet and discuss their plans with Sue. They returned and shared with my wife and I what a beautiful lady Sue was. They were delighted". X D.Grey

First Review of 2020
"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

I feel so lucky and honoured to have been involved in this very special wedding. Sue x
