Let us help make your wedding that extra bit special and even more memorable with our exciting and varied music. We have music to suit all wedding styles, from Bach to Bon Jovi and Puccini to The Beatles. Please refer to our repertoire lists for more information.

Whether you have a clear idea of what you would like or you are looking for inspiration, our experience and expertise will help you to choose the perfect music for your perfect day.

We can be on hand to play throughout your whole wedding day, from your ceremony to your drinks reception and wedding breakfast. We can also just play for a part of your special day.

The Wedding Ceremony

During the wedding ceremony we can play a selection of music as your guests arrive and your chosen pieces will be performed for the entrance of the bride, the signing of the register and for the exit of the new Mr and Mrs.

The Wedding Reception and Meal

We can play background music throughout your drinks reception at your chosen venue.This creates a relaxed atmosphere for guests to mingle and enjoy a drink after the wedding ceremony. We can also play throughout your wedding breakfast.

 Locations

We are based in the Midlands and are happy to play in Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Warwickshire, Northampton shire Shropshire and Birmingham. All these areas are included in our fee. If you require us to travel further, then an extra mileage charge would be needed.

 

Your wedding is one of the happiest days of your life and should be an unforgettable experience not just for you but also for your family & friends. We can help to make your day truly unforgettable with the perfect combination of high quality music & stylish presentation.

A string quartet can enhance your wedding by entertaining your guests, emphasizing important parts of the ceremony, providing background music & fillers or accompanying hymns.

Imagine the bride’s procession accompanied by Handel’s Arrival of the Queen of Sheba, or Pachelbel’s Canon or for traditionalists Wagner’s  famous ‘Here Comes The Bride’  Wedding March. Our string quartets are very flexible, able to gauge the mood in any situation and choose suitable music accordingly.

Is space limited at your venue? On a tight budget? You don’t have to have all four players – we are experienced in providing string duos and trios as well as string quartets, and can advise you about how much space we need. While a string quartet gives a richer sound, duos and trios can still provide that touch of elegance, at a reduced price!

Arrangement Service

If you require a particular piece of music that is not currently in the repertoire to be played by the quartet for your wedding or event, we can write an arrangement specially. A nominal fee (£50 per arrangement) is charged for this service, but this must be agreed at least two months ahead of the booking date.
