This is the Classical Strings Quartet filmed during a rehearsal. We are playing my String Arrangement of ‘One Summer’s Day’ from the film Spirited Away, originally composed by Joe Hisaishi.
This arrangement is also available for Trio, Duo and Solo Violin and is a very popular piece of music for weddings.
Hope, love and excitement is again filling my inbox as couples share their ideas for songs and the music they would like for their wedding day. The music from a String Quartet (or another string ensemble) is there throughout the most important parts of the day, from the wedding ceremony and then on to the relaxed drinks reception. It never overpowers the conversations, but creates a magical backdrop, forever entwined with the memories of each and every guest.
Composed Just For You – A wedding gift that is as unique as you are.
To make a special day even more personal, I can compose a piece of music especially for you. Using the letters of your names or initials, I can transcribe this into music, and create a music motif to form the basis of a unique melody which will then be developed into a longer piece. This can then be performed on Solo Violin, Duo, Trio or String Quartet. You can also receive a recording of the music too, and also a Solo Piano version of the music, which will be a lasting and special memento of your day. This also makes an ideal anniversary present too!
Here is an example of one of my haunting Celtic melodies. The music can also be arranged and recorded for String Quartet, Trio, Duo or Piano.

COVID has had a huge impact on the Wedding Industry and in turn, is affecting trends and perhaps some of these are actually helping couples make different decisions.
There is a desire to enhance the intimacy of the day and reduce wedding costs and the rise of the ‘Micro Wedding’ has increased. More couples are opting for celebrations with smaller guest lists because of COVID but also because it fits in with the rise of elopements and smaller weddings.
You can still customise your Micro Wedding by hiring a musician and if your wedding is small, a Solo Violin is the perfect choice in creating a magical atmosphere. A solo violinist will also provide safe distancing, is very mobile, eco friendly and needs very little room!
“Sue played at our wedding and we cannot recommend her highly enough. Sue was extremely accommodating in rearranging the date and times due to Covid. Everyone was amazed at how Sue transformed the atmosphere with her beautiful playing! She’s an amazing and talented lad! Thank you again, X” Nicole
A solo violin will provide your wedding with the perfect soundtrack that you can remember for a lifetime.
What styles of music can a violinist play?
Violinists are normally classically trained. Ideally, a solo violinist can also play in a variety of styles, such as Pop, Rock, Jazz, Folk, Soundtracks etc. Their classical music training will have given them the skills to be able to play any type of music to professional quality.
I play on an acoustic violin that requires no additional equipment. Being acoustic also fits in with the trend for Green and Eco themed weddings. The sound will naturally blend into your wedding when required and will not overpower the natural conversation from your guests. A solo violin is also very mobile and can move to any location as they need so little room!
