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!

I've just finished a new arrangement of 'At Last' by Etta James! This is such a timeless classic and is one of three special arrangements for one of our lovely brides whose wedding we are playing at this month.

Testimonial
Sue and Becky played for our daughters wedding.
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

Love and music go hand in hand.
The sound of your specially arranged song conveying the love you feel for each other without a single word being spoken. For us, the whole day is like being in the most romantic movie ever made. You and your guests supply the story, and we supply the soundtrack.

This is a very short clip the Classical Strings Quartet trying out one of my special music arrangements, which I created for one of our lovely couples! It is a gorgeous melody, and is the theme from the film, 'Cinema Paradiso' by Morricone, arranged for strings by me, Sue Aston!

Wedding plans may have changed but the bond of love remains the same and continues to grow stronger. Spring flowers are appearing as the clouds clear and a blue sky emerges.
As I type this, we have our first wedding of the season on the horizon. This is an exciting time of hope, and of course stories of love as unique as the couples who book us to play for them.

The Classical Strings Duo
Featuring the violin and cello, this combination is ideal for performing in a small space or for micro weddings.
The violin melodies are supported by the depth of the cello sound, and creates a well balanced performance.

Testimonial:
“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 Sue Aston
