Wedding Quartet for Devon and Cornwall from Classical Strings

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.

Classical Strings perform regularly at music festivals and are 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!

Here's a photo from our recent wedding at the St Ives Harbour Hotel in Cornwall.
For this wedding we played alongside a wonderful keyboard player, and performed his arrangement of a beautiful song which was composed by the Groom!
It really was a very special moment!

Ensemble Spotlight - The Classical Strings Trio
This comprises of two violins and a cello, and performs the same wide ranging repertoire as the String Quartet.
The Trio is slightly more compact than the Quartet, so if space is a problem, but you would like more sound than a solo instrument, then this option is ideal. With both violins playing in harmony together, and the cello providing the bass line, there is music to suit everyone’s taste.

I love the moment before the bride arrives and we get ready to play her special song. Within seconds the room will be filled with love and music. Everyone is so excited and there's a feeling of excitement in the air. It's amazing to me how much happiness can come from just one song. Sue
