Natalia and the rest of the string trio we booked for our wedding were absolutely amazing. Natalia was very organised and communicated well in advance of the date; she was flexible and very accommodating, taking care to understand our running order and exactly what we envisioned. The music was perfection and made everything so much more emotional. The trio played a combination of classical pieces, contemporary pop music and Disney songs. Thanks so much to Natalia and the team for an amazing performance!

After meeting the Charming Strings collective, I decided to invite them to play at a private family/friends event to keep the atmosphere sophisticated. They were loved by all and the music went down a treat. I cannot recommend them enough. The ladies were lovely to chat to when they were not playing and brought an energy and discussion to what otherwise might have been a boring event.
