If you are looking for absolute perfection and a touch of class. Strings Con Amore are exactly what you are looking for. They made our wedding day unforgettable. They truly went above and beyond, learning new songs and supporting us with planning our day. We cannot thank you enough, playing from when our guests arrived, throughout the ceremony and then drinks reception. Our guests were blown away, they commented all evening on how fantastic you were!!! Thanks to you we will treasure our special day forever. Calum & Elisa. 13.07.19
