Cristinel Bacanu
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"We booked Cristinel for our wedding on the 1st June, when we booked we asked a number of questions which he answered honestly and quickly. Leading up to the ceremony he checked in with us to ask if we had any questions or concerns and to let us know everything was still OK on his end - which not many vendors/suppliers did which was a great cause of stress! On the day itself he arrived early even though he had travelled a long way to get there, he was amazing with the kids that were there and his performance was exceptional - he even ended up staying later than planned due to out first dance being delayed. We couldn't fault Cristinel at all and would very highly recommend him to anyone looking for a violinist"

FAQs about hiring Violinists in West Midlands

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.
