Booked very short notice For our wedding but couldn’t have been more helpful. Great communication and even took the time to learn a song for us that isn’t part of their repertoire. They helped make our day even more special and for that we are hugely thankful to them.Our only disappointment is that we didn’t get to listen to them more as we had to go and have photographs! I couldn’t recommend them enough. You won’t be disappointed.

Just a quick message to say thank you so much to you and the team for your services on our wedding day. I couldn't fault the music, it was so perfect. I'd loved for you to have stayed to play all day! Sorry we didn't get to say goodbye to you. Thanks again, Natalie

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Our usual, and preferred line up, is 2x violins, 1x viola and 1x cello. We can offer a string trio if needed.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We can usually be flexible enough to accommodate any changes in times, within reason.

How much time do you need to set up?

We tend to arrive and set up around 1 hour - 1.5 hours before our booking time.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

We recommend that you pick the songs/pieces for the ceremony, but when it comes to the background music it's best to just give us a direction and we'll select the music. An idea of the type of music is helpful, and any "no-nos" are good to know too!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, we provide all equipment. All we need are 4 chairs. Unless we're being asked to perform outside. If outside then we need to be undercover and out of direct sunlight.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a certain piece/song is not in our repertoire list then we can usually learn it. We write our own arrangements of songs so usually we can sort something out, but this will incur an additional charge.
