Thank you for the perfect blend of music, it was exactly as required. Just sorry that some of our guests were more interested in drinking than appreciating the music.

Charlie and Rebecca are amazing. We chose our special wedding songs, they took these and made them their own. It took our breath away. They make every song so personal and special. The String of Roses has some beautiful songs to suit all tastes and styles. Our personal favourite would have to be Damien Rice's The Blowers Daughter but we love every song in their set list. We would highly recommend these guys if you want the most beautiful music played at your wedding ceremony and /or reception.
