Our experience was great! The group played beautifully at our wedding, we had many compliments from our guests. My only regret is that I kept getting dredged away and would have lived to listen to them more!

They were wonderful. I am the mother of the groom so sat close to them. The music was exquisite, beautiful in the church, then they moved into the garden room whilst the photos were taken to entertain the guests whilst having drinks and canapés. Their repertoire was amazing, classic and modern. I loved them!

Giardino Strings were booked to play at our wedding. They played at the ceremony and during the drinks reception. They were amazing with a mix modern and classical music. Our guests could not stop taking about how wonderful they were. Lovely group and beautiful music

"An absolutely delightful team. We hired the string quartet for our registry and reception. They played flawlessly and beautifully. Their music really added that spark of magic to the ceremony. David and the team took all of our requests - from what we needed them to play, what room they needed to move to, what alterations we required in the songs arrangement etc. They arrived on time, dressed to perfection. They took the time to congratulate us on the wedding. They took part in some of the fun of the wedding too, which was really nice to see. They played such a key part of the wedding, I wish we could do it all over again."

David D

They were brilliant, David and his band were the icing on our cake we are truly grateful. Thank you.
