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!

One of our new music services - Arranged & Recorded Just For You
This is for wedding couples who love our arrangements but live in an area we cannot travel to.

For example, today we have recorded a special arrangement of the song the Bride and Groom want to use for their first dance. The wedding is in Italy so it is wonderful to think our music will played so far away.
This service has also been used as an anniversary gift.

More fabulous feedback from one of our recent weddings!
"We’ve returned from our family mini-moon so I just wanted to drop you a note to say a huge huge thank you for playing our wedding. We and our guests were absolutely blown away - our wedding just wouldn’t have been the same without Classical Strings.

Everyone commented on how good you were and how they loved the song choices. ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight’ was a tearjerker for many, ‘Frozen' was a favourite of our 4 yr old niece, and LOTS of people commented on 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and 'Game of Thrones theme tune' - you are all so talented and it was very special to listen to.
We both absolutely loved your arrangement of ‘Best Friend’ by Queen, I can’t thank you enough for this and we also heard you playing James Arthur as we were waiting to come into The Orangery.

I can’t recommend you enough and as I work in events if we ever have another event in Cornwall I wouldn’t hesitate in booking you again". Steph & Toby

The video features a short clip of my arrangement of My Best Friend by Queen.
