Gaynor Sutcliffe
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"Wow what can I say.. Gaynor was absolutely incredible, would check up on how the wedding planning was going before the big day & updated me every step of the way. This was a surprise for my wife on our wedding day. Wasn’t a dry eye even before we walked down the aisle!! Everyone loved the music choice saying it was a beautiful touch, really brought everything together!! We absolutely loved how gaynor put a personal touch on things by writing in our guest book was so extremely thoughtful (& emotionally). We both can’t thank you enough you are worth it 100x over!! Love Lucy & Amy xxx"

"Gaynor was absolutely amazing playing for us at our wedding. She made the wedding extra special with how beautiful she plays the violin, all the guests commented on how amazing she was and how it created such a beautiful atmosphere at the ceremony. Gaynor is also very lovely and always very quick at replying to any messages I had. Would highly recommend her to anyone 😊 thanks again!! Xx"

"We booked Gaynor and her accompanying pianist only about 6 weeks before our wedding, and we feel so lucky to have found her. She was incredible, both in the weeks leading up and on the day. She walked us through what she needed, what she would be playing at different times during the ceremony, and was completely flexible, allowing us to make changes to anything necessary. She also sent us a list of the medley she typically plays before the ceremony as well as a video of her playing to make sure we were happy. Some of the music we asked her to play was from a video game and was a bit obscure, but even with the short notice, they played it beautifully and just perfectly encapsulated our vision. Music is very important to me and my husband, so it was crucial that we found someone who shared that passion. Thank you Gaynor! Highly recommend."

FAQs about hiring Violinists in Cumbria

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

Are violins popular for weddings?

Yes, absolutely, particularly for smaller, more intimate weddings, one violinist can be enough. A solo violinist can create a beautiful, elegant atmosphere that is loud enough to be heard by everyone without drowning out conversation. However, for larger weddings, you might want to opt for a string quartet or a string duo instead for a fuller sound. If unsure, chat with one of our experts today who talk through your budget, venue and tastes to work out what would work best for you.

Is one violin enough for a wedding?

Yes, violinists are very popular for weddings. Traditional, acoustic violinists are great for wedding ceremonies, evening meals and wedding breakfasts, whereas electric violinists are popular for drinks receptions as they have a louder sound.

Which songs sound best on the violin?

The violin is often associated with classical music, but it's a versatile instrument that can work well with many genres. If you're a fan of classical music, you might enjoy listening to Pachelbel's Canon in D, Beethoven's "Spring" Sonata, or Tchaikovsky's "Melodie". For those who prefer modern music, songs like Adele's "Someone Like You", Ed Sheeran's "Perfect", or Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are" sound great on the violin. If you browse through our musicians’ profiles, you’ll be able to find videos of their live performances and their song lists to get an idea of their sound. It's worth mentioning, however, that our violinists are skilled professionals who are committed to making sure you have a great night and are more than willing to take requests if you can’t find your favourite song on their profile.

Which is better violin or electric violin?

Choosing between a traditional acoustic violin and an electric violin depends on factors like venue size, acoustics, and budget. Acoustic violins produce a warm sound but may not project well in larger spaces. Electric violins can amplify sound and offer digital effects, but some argue they lack natural expression. Ultimately, what works best will depend on your preferences and many of our violinists own both acoustic and electric so browse our collection of violinists today to see what might work best for you.
