We just wanted to get in touch to express our sincere gratitude to you and the other three members of your team, for performing at our wedding reception last Saturday. You absolutely blew our guests away and they haven't stopped talking about you! I was disappointed to only catch the "second half" but the wedding photographer had us elsewhere. And I'm also sorry that we didn't get much chance to chat. What we did hear, we loved. Thanks for adding a really special finishing touch to our perfect day.

I am happy to give the Aderyn String Quartet a 5 star review. I have been to a wedding recently where the string quartet was a very poor quality. Fortunately, our experience at our daughter's wedding was exactly the opposite. The quality of the music was superb. At one point my husband, a musician himself, said to me, 'Listen, this is beautiful'. Thank you to the Aderyn String Quartet for a professional performance.
