Vitula were truly magnificent when they played for our wedding, a genuine class act. They are such talented musicians and when they played 'Here comes the bride' as I walked down the aisle there wasn't a dry eye in the house! Thank you so much to Nick, Hannah, Sarah and Clare you made our day so special when we watch our wedding video back and hear you play we are transported right back to how we felt on our special day. Thank you so much I would recommend you to anyone looking for a string quartet to play at their wedding.

Vitula String Quartet were absolutely brilliant at our wedding. They played during the ceremony and drinks reception and all of their music sounded beautiful - we requested quite a lot of modern songs and they all sounded amazing! Nick was very responsive and communicative before the day which helped put our mind at rest - and our guests really enjoyed the music! Thank you so much for helping to make our day perfect. I'd definitely recommend Vitula String Quartet for anyone looking to book musicians for an event.
