Strings

Elegant and sophisticated, string instruments add a touch of class to any event. From the traditional string quartet, perfect for background music at a drinks reception, to trios, duos and solo acts ideal for smaller parties and ceremonies, we can advise on the perfect string ensemble for your requirements.

 
String Quartet

String Quartet

The ever-popular traditional string quartet is made up of two violins, a viola and a cello. String quartets are great for providing background music to a drinks reception or meal as they have a huge variety of repertoire available to them, from classical favourites to arrangements of pop, jazz, film and theatre songs. This line up is also very versatile so if you have a particular song request in mind, booking one of our string quartets is likely to be your best bet!

Prices start at £550

String Trio

String Trio

A string trio is usually made up of a violinist, a violist and a cellist. Similarly versatile to the string quartet, they are the perfect alternative if you are restricted in space or budget. The sound isn’t as full as that of a string quartet, which on the one hand makes them less suitable for complex song arrangements (although they still play a wide range of classical and contemporary pieces) but on the other hand makes them perfect for the more intimate setting of a wedding ceremony.

Prices start at £412.50

String duo (alternative)

String Duo

For very small and intimate events a string duo creates a beautiful atmosphere. We offer duos of violin and viola, violin and cello or viola and cello. These duos can play sublime classical pieces written especially for that line-up, as well as a small selection of arranged pieces in different styles and genres. We can also put together duos of two violins or two cellos by request.

Prices start at £280

Solo cellist

Solo Cellist

Available to book either on their own or playing one or two pieces alone before joining a string trio or quartet, a solo cellist can create a stunning atmosphere for a wedding ceremony. Famously featured in the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in 2018, the cello has been described as the closest sounding instrument to the human voice. We can also offer cello and piano duos and cello and harp duos, if you’re looking for a fuller accompaniment and a wider variety of repertoire.

Solo Violinist

Solo Violinist

As with solo cellists, we can book a solo violinist to play alone for your wedding ceremony, or we can book a quartet or trio and arrange for the lead violinist to include one or two solo pieces. Playing soaring, romantic unaccompanied melodies, the violin works beautifully as a solo instrument. If you are looking for something more unusual, we also offer a violin and classical guitar duo, a violin and piano duo and a violin and harp duo.
