ZHL strings were an absolute pleasure to deal with from the moment we enquired. Their communication was excellent, they were able to accommodate our favourite song at very short notice, and we’re very responsive to all messages. Their performance was impeccable. Beautifully played classical and modern songs have our wedding both class and personality! They were also beautifully presented, and so so lovely to talk to. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for any event! Thank you ZHL for really being the cherry on top of our beautiful day. Lucy & Danny
