Good communication before the event, arrived on the evening before the event was due to start and set up, they played the type of music we requested and everyone really enjoyed the Quartet and we were all really impressed with them. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

A vibrant, professional outfit with a youthful zest compared to some tired quartets. Great addition to our wedding!

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding, you all played so beautifully and everyone loved it! It was one of my favourite things about the day. So many people complimented your quartet, and I'm so grateful for you all making the journey to us.

We booked The Ebor Quartet for our original wedding date- June 6 2020. Due to the pandemic, we had to postpone four times. With each change, our contact, Conor, could not have been more understanding, accommodating and was always so quick to respond which, when you are trying to rearrange a wedding in a day, was hugely appreciated! He always had kind words and said nothing was a problem although we know it took a lot of rearranging on his part. Their playlist is excellent- a great mix of classic and modern to choose from. I asked for some from the list and also for some specific songs that weren’t from the list. They took the time to produce the arrangements (some very complicated) and sent them through to make sure we were happy with everything- and they exceeded all expectations. On the day everyone said how amazing the music was, it really made the service and created a lovely atmosphere for the ceremony. It was very special. When looking for all suppliers, it is important to consider the fact that they will become a part of your wedding. Not only are The Ebor Quartet incredibly talented but they were a great support, fun, enthusiastic, they took on all of our requests and I honestly couldn’t be happier that they were a part of our wedding day.
