Just wanted to drop a note through to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding on 19th July, we’ve had loads of lovely comments about how great you were. The music during ceremony was really lovely, you really added to the day. Not sure there will ever be another occasion in my life in which ill require a string quartet, but if I ever do I would definitely look you up!!
Laura and Tom
The quartet were amazing on the day. The music before and during the ceremony and as I walked down the aisle really added to the sense of occasion. It was also great to have you playing outside in the garden during our drinks reception. So many of our guests commented on how they really enjoyed the music. I would definitely recommend Arco Strings and will hopefully have the opportunity to book you again for another occasion!
Jayne and Keith
Rachel and I were absolutely delighted with the service provided from start to finish. On the day, you played beautifully and we are still having comments regarding the playlist you provided. I do not think one guest did not mention how special Arco playing, made the church feel that extra special. Thank you very much for playing at our wedding – worth every penny and delighted that we chose you.
Kris and Rachel
Many thanks for supporting our event on Friday, it was a great success. It’s always a pleasure to deal with Arco, from your customer service to the music itself. You are always professional and your music is beautiful, we do receive lovely feedback after you have attended our events. We would be happy to recommend you to others and should the occasion arise for us we will be in touch again.
We both thought you were a fantastic quartet, professional, so helpful (especially in accommodating less traditional music into our ceremony) and the music sounded beautiful. A number of our guests commented on how much they had enjoyed the music you played. We really appreciated the time you took to help us make our ceremony a little different and to make it personal to us. We can’t thank you enough!
Anna and Bobby

Just a brief note to thank you all for contributing to my daughter’s wedding in Alnwick Garden on Saturday. You helped make Rachael and Graeme’s special day extra-special and I’ve received many compliments about your performance.
We just wanted to send a note of thanks….the music on our wedding day could not have been any more perfect. Thank you so much for accommodating us, we loved it. The comments we have received from all of our guests has been overwhelming, they absolutely LOVED the music. So really, just to reiterate how grateful we are for all of your flexibility with us, and allowing us to have the relaxed fun day that we wanted.

Just back from honeymoon…we just wanted to thank you so much for playing at our reception at our wedding. You were absolutely amazing and just thinking of you playing as we pulled up in the car after the ceremony makes us very emotional! Guests were also blown away by you.
Sally & Dave
We had a wonderful day and our arrival at the Thistle was made extra special by hearing Arco playing for our guests. It created a lovely atmosphere and all our friends commented on the day and even afterwards how impressed they were with the music. The variety of songs was the highlight as everyone enjoyed hearing music they recognised and liked. All the ladies were very friendly and professional, especially enduring our mischievous flower girl! We would certainly recommend Arco to anyone planning their wedding as it made our special day perfect! Thank you for helping to make it a wonderful day,
Kathryn and Neil
It was another great night and we’ve had lovely feedback from everyone. This annual event is well received by our customers and it would not be the same without you. You sounded wonderful and I could have gladly sat somewhere out of sight and listened to you all night. Many thanks for your professionalism, you make my work very easy and I know I can leave you to make the right decisions for this event & I look forward to working with you again in the future.
Tisha, Marketing Manager
I wanted to thank you so much for your wonderful playing during our wedding. We had so many people ask who you were and tell us how fabulous you all were.
Dominique and Piers
We are just back from Honeymoon and wanted to say thank you again for everything last Saturday. We had a fantastic day at the Mansion House and every guest commented on how beautiful the music was. The whole atmosphere of the venue and ambience of the wedding was set by your fantastic music. Thank you so much.
Kay and Daniel
The Arco String Quartet provided a fitting end to an action packed three day Soroptimist Conference at the Sage, Gateshead when fifteen hundred delegates sat enraptured by their music. Playing to an audience of women from around the world and from many different cultures, these four extremely talented young women displayed versatility and sensitivity in their playing. They were an important part of our celebrations.
We wanted to say how wonderful Arco were at Nicola & Iain’s wedding recently at Jesmond Dene House. You added that extra touch of elegance to an already lovely setting and so many of the guests have said how much they enjoyed your playing. Thank you for making our daughter’s special day even more special. Right from the first point of contact you responded quickly and professionally but with a lovely personal feel and we would be happy to recommend Arco String Quartet.
Good morning! Please pass on our thanks and admiration for your playing to all in the quartet. Your presence was really valued – in spite of the noise we all made! Thank you so much.
Fenella, Mills & Co.
It was just wonderful having you play for us. The number of comments we got saying how amazing the music was has been incredible and we can’t thank you enough. Especially for indulging us in our choir/strings/band extravaganza!
John and Urmilla
Your selection of music was fantastic, we certainly were not stuck for choice and our guests loved the mix of old, new and classical throughout the day. You created a wonderful atmosphere which was the perfect build up to the reception. I would highly recommend Arco to any other bride and grooms out there – I wish we could do it all over again!!
Robyn and Andrew
Thank you all very much for creating the perfect musical accompaniment to a lovely venue. Everyone commented on how lovely your playing was and also the variety of music you played. It certainly set a very elegant atmosphere for the day. Many of the guests were musicians themselves and really appreciated the quality of Arco String Quartet. Thank you again for helping to make our day so perfect.
Paul & Emma
We only returned from our honeymoon yesterday but we wanted to let you know how much our guests and ourselves enjoyed listening to you in the chapel and on the terrace. You helped create such a lovely atmosphere and so many people have commented on this. It was great that you were able to play a range of modern and traditional pieces which suited our wedding perfectly.
The atmosphere during the ceremony and reception was made relaxed and entertaining by yourselves. We have put our heads together and we really can’t think of anything that you would need to improve on. Thank you for entertaining us perfectly on our day.
Adam and Anne
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding ceremony recently! The pieces you played sounded beautiful and a number of our guests commented on the wonderful atmosphere your music helped to create both before and during the ceremony. I really enjoyed walking down the aisle to you playing Pachebel’s Canon, it was perfect! From the moment we booked you, you responded to our queries promptly and were helpful and professional throughout. We would definitely recommend you to anyone who is planning a wedding – thanks again!
Sam and Gary
We have just returned from a holiday and want to take the opportunity to thank you for making Laura and Nathan’s day spectacular. So many guests commented on how beautiful the day was, and your presence was the icing on the cake! The music in the church was amazing only topped by you also being at Close House. So many of the guests asked how we ‘found you’ so watch out for future work!
Christine (Mother of the Bride)
I just wanted to say thank you for playing at our wedding. The music was fantastic. I am only sorry that I missed so much of it as we arrived late due to a wardrobe malfunction with one of my bridesmaid’s dresses.
We are just back from our honeymoon and I wanted to thank you all so much for your beautiful string music at our wedding.

Paul and I absolutely loved having you there and you really helped create the perfect atmosphere for our wedding day. Thank you so much!!
Abbi and Paul
A very, very big thank you for your fantastic playing at our wedding on 4th May in Warkworth. You really made the time in the church so special. We particularly thought your performance of The Lark Ascending was amazing and I was thrilled to hear you play Marry You by Bruno Mars as I waited in the porch! A very big personal thank you for writing a specific arrangement for my arrival. It far exceeded my expectations and filled a childhood ideal!
Emma and Simon
You were amazing!!!! As the bride and groom, you don’t really appreciate the emotiveness of the music. What we did hear was fabulous. Our guests couldn’t have praised you all enough. We all loved it.
Andrea and Alan
We thought you all played beautiful and it just added that extra special touch to our perfect day. We have had a great number of our guests comment on your performance. Wonderful, outstanding, beautiful pieces of music and they just helped create that nice relaxing atmosphere in garden during reception drinks, were some of the comments used. We both thought you all played amazing and would certainly recommend you to our friends and family.
Anna and Nathan
We just wanted to say a big thank you for yesterday you made our day extra special.
Jonny & Megan
We really enjoyed the music you played at our wedding and thought that the whole experience from choosing the pieces of music to you playing at the wedding was a first class experience. I found you all very professional and friendly and the music really added to a fantastic atmosphere at Seaham Hall. The guests commented that the choice of music was beautiful which I left mainly to you to choose and I was really pleased with the recommendations which you made to us. I would definitely recommend you to any couple who are getting married in the future.
Tina and Keith
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing on our wedding day. The pieces we heard were fantastic and our guests confirmed the rest was too! So upset we didn’t get to see the whole set. We will definitely recommend you to other couples, really gave a great atmosphere to our day.
Carrie and Richard
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. Sorry I was a little later at the church than expected. I kind of delayed the whole day. I had a lot of guests comment on the string quartet and it really added something extra to the day! You were all very professional and discreet and I couldn’t thank you all more.
Mr and Mrs Dewar
I’d just like to say a big thank you to you all for playing at our Graduation Ceremony on Friday. As always, you were very professional, playing with very little instruction from us. You always make a huge difference to the Ceremony, creating a lovely atmosphere and making it a very special day for our Graduands and Diplomats. Thanks again and we look forward to working with you again in November.
We would just like to say thank you to you all for playing such an important part of our wedding day at Linden Hall. The fantastic choice of music was great and was played beautifully. You gave the venue such a lovely atmosphere both during the ceremony and drinks reception and all of our guest really enjoyed listening to you.
Amy and Phi
I would just like to say a huge ‘Thank You’ to your string quartet for playing at Catherine & Neil’s wedding last Sunday – we had a wonderful day and things are only now beginning to return to ‘normal’. Many of our guests have said how lovely your playing was before the bride was finally able to make her entrance – and I really appreciate you playing for longer than the 15 minutes or so originally planned!! Thank you once again for fulfilling Catherine’s dream of coming into church accompanied by Pachelbel’s Canon.
Thank you for your performance at our wedding in December – it was absolutely perfect and I will be sure to recommend you to anyone looking for a string quartet. As I said we loved having you play at our wedding. Civil ceremonies can be lacking in atmosphere but you definitely provided that for us. I just wish we’d had a longer aisle to walk down to enjoy it longer! All of our guests loved the performance – especially our exit to ‘Fairytale of New York’.
Your performance was wonderful, our guests really enjoyed listening to you and all commented on what a lovely serene atmosphere it made for our drinks ceremony. Indeed, the weather also helped and it was wonderful that you could play outside in the sunshine. Many thanks again for your professionalism, ease of booking and great music.
I just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding a couple of weeks ago at Alnwick. It was absolutely beautiful and really helped make our day a perfect one. The guests especially liked Sweet Child of Mine! And I was very moved walking down the aisle to One Hand One Heart. We’re just back from an amazing honeymoon and still on a high from the whole occasion. So thank you again for everything. We’ll never forget it.
Beth and Brian
We are enjoying married life and hope you are all well. We have very fond memories of you playing at our wedding and can’t thank you enough. We thought you were fabulous, very professional and helped create the atmosphere for our perfect day. We also received many compliments and positive comments from our guests about yourselves. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you for other weddings and events. There was lots of choice and when requested, a specific song not on your list was provided which echoed the great service we had received throughout.
Jess and Daniel
Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all your contributions to making our wedding such a wonderful day. We have had so many of our guests remark on how well you all played and set a magnificent atmosphere – you were superb!
Steve and Julia
Thank you so much for playing at Gemma and Craig’s wedding it was fabulous and everyone commented on how beautiful the music was and how much they enjoyed listening to you all play. Please pass on my thanks to the other girls. Thanks again.
Tracy and Phil (parents of the bride)
Thank you all so very much for playing at Melanie and Stephen’s wedding. You helped to make the day so special and perfect! Michael and I were very impressed by your professionalism. Your musicianship is first rate and nothing seems to faze you, neither having to relocate outside nor some of the music choices! Once again, many thanks.
Michael and Anne (parents of the groom)
Just wanted to drop you a thank you note for Tuesday. I thought you were truly phenomenal (strings are close to my heart!). I hope it was enjoyable for you too, and that you were well looked after. When we’re next looking for a bit of class for the evening I’d love to pick up the phone and see if you’re available.
Everything about your music was excellent. Everybody was very impressed with the variety of music you played, making it really enjoyable for all our guests. I could not have wished for a more beautiful performance during the ceremony. Your choice of music for the signing of the register was amazing, I am so pleased I left it to you to decide what to play! You made our day perfect and we can’t thank you enough.
Sam and Rupert
Morning, just a quick note to say a big thank you for last night at our VIP Dinner-Matfen Hall. It was a great success and all our guests enjoyed the music/playlist immensely.
We absolutely loved having Arco String Quartet at our wedding. I think the music was absolutely beautiful and really created a wonderful atmosphere. Whenever I emailed prior to the wedding about any queries I had, I always had a very swift response. I was worried about the weather at that time of the year and was reassured that whatever the weather……you would get there……so that eased some of my big worries! Our guests have all commented on how beautiful the music was. Thank you all for coming to our wedding in such terrible snow and making our day very special
Susie and Andy
Thank you so much for playing for us on our wedding day. It really made the occasion so special, the music was beautiful and we loved our Sibelius arrangement at the beginning – a very emotional moment and quite simply unforgettable. We also very much appreciated being able to rely on you and it was one of the biggest reliefs on the day to see that you had defied the extreme weather conditions to set up and ready yourselves for the occasion and that we could look forward to a ceremony with music the way that we had imagined.
John and Laura
Thank you so much for coming along and entertaining our guests – it was a lovely start to the evening and thoroughly enjoyable. As the organisers, we were extremely happy and shall certainly be recommending you to other people.
The Arco Ladies! Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. We had so many comments on how good you were and the Star Wars theme went down a treat! Playing Bittersweet Symphony was our favourite moment, Anthony was an emotional wreck when he heard it! Thank you again for being part of our day.
Victoria and Anthony
Just a quick note to thank you and the rest of the quartet for playing at our Graduation. As usual you did a fantastic job and we look forward to you playing again in November. I’ve received lots of positive comments from staff and students about your performance. Many thanks once again.
Just wanted to thank you all! The wedding day was perfect and you guys made it so special. The music was fantastic and everyone was so impressed. Kindest Regards.
Claire and Jesse
You were all absolutely perfect. We had our heart set on live music and, scouring the Internet, we were dead chuffed to find that Arco hailed partly from Whitley Bay! Despite 1 of our requests not being listed, there was no problem in accommodating our song. On the day you were punctual, flexible, helpful, smiling and the music was tremendous, both at the church and at the castle. Given the chilly May weather, you kept everyone warm with your superb songs from the beatles to oasis and beyond! I would recommend Arco to everybody. We were 100% happy with the whole set up, from first contact through to the last note.
Simon and Hilary
Thank you very much for helping to make Louise and Jamie’s wedding day so special. Your music sounded amazing and helped to make it a perfect day.
Linda and Geoff
We just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thanks for playing such fantastic music at our wedding on Saturday. Many of our guests commented on how lovely the music was and it certainly made the day!
Stephen and Lindsay
Just wanted to send you a mail to say thank you so much for playing at our Wedding. We had an amazing day and Arco certainly added to it. Lots of our guests commented on how great you sounded, and I absolutely loved the Romeo and Juliet song, think it caused a few tears to flow!!
Jane and Jules
I just wanted to thank you and your players for your lovely performance; you created a great atmosphere for our guests. Many thanks again.
Dear Arco String Quartet. Thank you so much for playing so wonderfully at our wedding. You made our ceremony that bit more special, and all our guests thought you were fabulous! We particularly enjoyed your version of Take That’s ‘Greatest Day’. Thank you!
Mark and Michelle
The Arco String Quartet recently provided the musical entertainments at a VIP event to say farewell to the QE2 cruise ship which I organised for a prestigious client The Port of Tyne Authority. Their music was a lovely touch to a superb evening which was had by all, it set a fantastic ambience. They had a varied repertoire which catered perfectly to what I envisioned and they are extremely talented and polite ladies.
Hilary Florek PR
Thank you for a wonderful performance. All our guests thought it added a lovely touch to a very special day. It was also a lovely surprise for Rachel & Chris and added something extra special to the occasion. I would have no hesitation in recommending your quartet to other family & friends.
We loved you playing at our wedding it was superb. Playing in the Kings Hall at the castle was beautiful it just set the scene. When you played out on the ramparts, everyone said that they could have stayed there all evening. The wonderful music, canapes, champagne in hand and such wonderful views.
Brilliant weather, beautiful setting and gorgeous music. The Arco String Quartet truly enhanced my daughter’s wedding. With a wide repertoire of music plus special requests the guests were entertained from chapel to castle. I can fully recommend this friendly talented group to anyone wanting that extra wow factor on the wedding day.
