Our most popular wedding string arrangement of 2019 will be our first single release of 2020!
This will be my arrangement for String Quartet of the Peaky Blinder’s theme, ‘Red Right Hand’ by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.
The version of the song on our YouTube Channel and Soundcloud has had 1000’s of views and we have had many requests for an official recording. It has also been a hit with all the other weddings we have played at in 2018/19 I have tried to capture the raw and rhythmic quality of the music which reflects life in Birmingham.
The official release date will be Friday, January 3rd 2020 across Spotify, Apple Music, Google, Amazon, Tidal and many more…
Being Being booked to play at a wedding is never just a job, it is not just about playing a few songs.
A wedding day is charged full of emotions, many of them full of love and joy.
However, they can also be tinged with sadness if a family member, such as a parent, has passed away. Sometimes the music I play represents someone’s memory, and this can become a poignant moment during the ceremony.
For the couple booking me, this is their one special day, and I am always aware of how honoured I feel to be part of this.
On the wedding day, not everyone may see me, but I am aware that each note will be weaving amongst the conversations and creating memories that will last a lifetime. During the wedding ceremony, I time the music to fit in with each step the bride takes, being aware of the emotions and love filling the room in which the wedding is taking place.
Every wedding is as unique as the bride and groom getting married.

Viva Forever’ Arranged for String Quartet by Sue Aston, from Classical Strings. This is a beautiful, haunting melody by the Spice Girls, which works well for strings! Here is the Classical Strings Quartet warming up for a wedding at Polhawn Fort in Cornwall.
Those of you who know me from my work as a composer and recording artist will be aware of how important the landscape and the environment are to my work.
I am therefore very excited and pleased to see this upsurge in green and eco friendly weddings.
In many ways there is no better form of green entertainment than a String Quartet. It requires no electricity, no batteries and the instruments are traditional and handmade.
With many people looking for Barn Weddings and holding their celebrations outside, the music from a String Quartet (or similar string ensemble) will blend in with nature, bird song and the voices of your guests.
My job as the arranger and leader of the String Quartet is to provide a soundtrack that is recognisable, but at the same time not intrusive.
Please get in touch if you have any questions about how we can add a touch of natural magic to your wedding day!
