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.

No matter what the distance is, love will bridge the gap.
Working with another Bride & Groom who have selected the 'solo violin' option for their wedding.
I can maintain any social distancing and ensure that their special wedding song reaches the hearts of all those gathered.

NB: Our Quartet, Trio and Duo can also play two metres apart

Testimonial:
"I am a wedding planner in Cornwall and often recommend Classical Strings to my clients that are looking for this style of musicians.
Classical Strings give a 5-star service every time and I really enjoy working with them. Not only are they extremely talented, but they are also professional, organised and lovely to be around.
All of my clients have been over the moon with their service for our weddings and events. I highly recommend them," Jenny Wren Weddings

Even when we move out of lockdown, social distancing will still be a requirement in our daily life, and this will undoubtedly include weddings.

Our String Quartet can easily play with a 6 feet (2 meters) gap between our musicians. If space is an issue, then the Solo Violin option will work in any setting.
The sound from the violin will project very well, and I can quickly move and keep a safe distance from any wedding guests or staff as required.

Composed Just For You...
A unique piece of music for your wedding, anniversary birthday or event.

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.

True love is timeless. It knows no borders and ignores all restrictions that try to keep it from growing. It is, therefore, a wonderful gift to be helping future Brides & Grooms with their wedding plans in 2021 and even as far ahead as 2024!
Currently, we are still able to record your wedding song as a gift for your loved one or record a specially commissioned piece of music. Please get in touch if you need any help or advice.

Love

Music is unique in how it can tug at our heart strings.
As we listen, it is helping us to select the memories that will remain with us forever. When we mix this in with being with people we love, it can be even more powerful and define who we are.
Music can turn a simple scene in a movie into a great one. When I plan the music for a wedding, the song (or songs) that have meant the most to you will be added to your day creating your own great soundtrack.

The music from the strings will blend in with your day, evoking memories for your guests and laying down new ones for you and your partner.

The weather is beautiful but I am staying in this Easter. Tommorrow I will be recording a new violin video and then the rest of the Classical Strings Quartet will film their parts separately and we will then try and edit them together!

Stay safe and remember it is ok to not feel ok.

With regular playing postponed, we are looking towards other ways of helping and supporting wedding couples.
I am going to start doing a regular Facebook / Instagram live broadcasts playing some of our wedding repertoire on solo violin.

I am also working hard on new string arrangments and bespoke compositions for couples around the world.
A Bespoke Composition Just for you
How it works:

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.
