Music was great and suited our event very well. The performance was more subdued than the videos would suggest. Other than that the evening went really well - thank you.

Grazia Strings played at my wedding recently, performing from guest arrival, during the ceremony, and during drinks reception. Communication prior to the event was excellent, Ines was friendly and helpful throughout. Their performance on the day was fantastic, so many guests commented on how well they set the scene and on the quality of the songs they played. An excellent addition to our wedding day and at a very reasonable price!

Everyone loved the music our trio played. They were a great addition to the ambience and, dare I say, class of the event. Flexible too. Steve

We recently asked Grazia to play at our wedding and they were just brilliant! They played classical music during the church ceremony and in the evening swapped to their electric strings and were just fantastic. They were so helpful beforehand, making sure we were happy with the music, suggesting what would be good, and they really helped to made our day very special. Thanks girls!
