If your wedding plans are affected by coronavirus and you have a booking with us please get in touch. We’ll work closely with you to navigate any re-arranging so that we can still provide music for your special day.

We are still accepting new bookings as normal. Your deposit would be transferable to a new date if your wedding had to be postponed because of virus restrictions and we have social distancing policies in place to enable us to play for you and your guests safely. Musicians and others working at your wedding do not count towards guest numbers.

We are a covid secure music option as we do not blow into our instruments or sing, and our music is naturally at a volume that you can easily talk over without raising your voice. We can offer a string duo to help with space if you cannot accommodate 4 musicians. Live streaming is also an option if you cannot have us in the room with you.

In the meantime we’re offering a new service to record a special song so you can treat your loved one to the gift of music even while social distancing.

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to the string quartet for everything on Friday, you were truly amazing.  I loved my entrance song and it was everything I could have wanted and more.

You are truly amazing and your music is phenomenal.  We loved every second and all our guests complimented us on the music.  You made our wedding everything we wanted.
