Thank you Arco String Quartet for being a part of our special day and entertaining our wedding party. Lots of the guests commented how lovely the music sounded and how it created a lovely relaxing atmosphere. Thanks again x
We got married on 7th July 2021 and Arco played some beautiful music for us before and after the ceremony. We had to reschedule our wedding 4 times due to Covid-19 and they were so accommodating, understanding and helpful. The music on the day was absolutely perfect (my mam still talks about it now) and everyone said how fantastic they were. Their repertoire of songs is great and we were even allowed to select one additional song that wasn’t in the repertoire. We really can’t recommend them highly enough and would encourage everyone to have them perform on their special day.
We honestly think you were the most magical touch for our special day. I knew as soon as I saw you playing at a wedding fair at Wynyard that Arco were a non negotiable for our wedding. You are all amazingly talented and faultless – you brought a tear to so many peoples’ eyes.
Can I also just mention how appreciative I am that you went out of your way to play a personal request of Britney Spears which went down so well with all of our guests during the ceremony as I am her number one fan!
Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Can I just thank you for Wednesday. You were absolutely fantastic and really made the ceremony as special as it was. I couldn’t fault it, thank you from us both!
You were brilliant. The ability Arco had to move from classical to modern songs was seamless and helped change the dynamic of the day from the traditional elements to a more relaxed environment. We had so many people come up to us and say how brilliant you were throughout the day, playing some brilliant arrangements of modern songs. When people were outside having canapés and the drinks reception, the ambience you created was fantastic allowing people to engage with the music without it being overbearing. The performance as a whole was faultless.
Thank you for everything you did to be a part of our special day, we really appreciate it and we wish you all the best in the future, now things are starting to return to normal.
We absolutely loved having you both play at our wedding. I’ve always wanted a string duo at my wedding and you did not disappoint. Our guests loved the music and it was a lovely touch – you don’t get to go to many weddings with such lovely live music. Thanks so much for everything over the past couple of years and re-arranging dates etc.
I just wanted to send an email to say just how beautiful you all were on Thursday. Walking towards Threshing Hall on Thursday and hearing the wonderful music gave me goosebumps. I’ve had numerous messages from friends and family who were on the Zoom who have commented on how stunning the music was. We thoroughly enjoyed all of the songs you played as did our guests. Thankyou so much for everything.
The whole wedding day went better than we could have ever hoped for under the current circumstances, it really was a perfect day that was made even better by having you play for us. Every single one of our guests have commented on how good you were and how special your music sounded in the church.
From a personal point of view, I actually got goosebumps walking into an almost empty church and hearing you play the songs we had chosen. It was such a pleasure to stand and listen to you that it made waiting for the bride (traditionally late, of course) much less stressful 🙂
I also wanted to say a massive thank you for being so flexible and accommodating with the changes and uncertainty we faced leading up to the wedding because of government restrictions. Your communication and support was really appreciated.
Wow! It’s absolutely beautiful & means so much to us! A perfect way to honour what should have been this year but also a reminder of better things to come ♥️ Thank you so so much again!
Thank you so so much for this lovely gift. It was absolutely beautiful to listen to and definitely made today extra special. Very excited for October.
Thank you all so much, that email really has brightened up my saddened day. I’ve been looking forward to our wedding for as long as I remember, knowing it’s not going ahead tomorrow is heartbreaking, but I always say everything happens for a reason! I can’t wait to eventually meet you on my wedding day when I walk down the aisle in October. I’ll make sure I’ll send a smile to your way letting you know how much I appreciate your patience and your rearrangements.
Thank you so much for this, the recording is beautiful and I can’t wait for you to play at out wedding next year. Thanks again – this has made today that extra bit special xx
One year ago today you played at our wedding and today I received a wonderful personalised recording from my husband of the music I walked down the aisle to. Although we can’t be with family and friends today being able to share this music with them has made our day special. Thank you for coming up with such a lovely idea and for the amazing recording.
That’s fantastic! Thanks for coming back to us so quickly! It was a difficult decision [to postpone our wedding] but one that we needed to make. Everyone has been extremely prompt, accommodating, kind and helpful! We will unfortunately have to wait a little longer but that will make the day extra special when it finally comes! Thanks so much once again and we hope you take care and stay safe!
This has made my day & I’ve just cried happy tears thank you so so much what a lovely gift we really appreciate it! We were over the moon you are still able to attend our new date because we fell in love with your music at the South Causey wedding fair a few years ago.
Arco String Quartet were asked at short notice to perform a two hour set of classics at a recent formal function and their presentation and professionalism was above all expectations. The evening was so much more with the excellent compositions these ladies performed, not only classical but also modern classics that carried the theme of the function well. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone firstly speak to Arco String Quartet if you require quality musicians for any function.
Thank you for making our day very special. You ladies were brilliant and could not fault it at all. The day wasn’t at all what we planned [because of Covid19] but with everyone pulling together, it made it more special.
Would love to see you ladies play again sometime to really take in the moment again.
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding at Slaley Hall. You were absolutely fantastic and all of our guests commented how lovely the music was and how talented you all are. Apologies we didn’t get to speak to you in person but I believe my uncle and sister passed on our thanks. So once again, thank you for coming and being part of our special day.
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding on Sunday. Everybody commented on how amazing you were and how you made it even more special.
Would just like to give our utmost thanks to Arco String Quartet for performing at our wedding at Wynyard hall last Saturday. Every single one of our guests commented on how terrific you were, playing both classical and contemporary pieces for us.
Our guests loved you and you really helped to set the tone for the ceremony, so much more special than a standard recording! I’m so sorry I didn’t get the opportunity to thank you/speak to you both in person on the day, it was a total whirlwind!! Thank you so much for arranging to play our requested music, I remember standing outside the door, waiting to walk down the isle and getting all excited at hearing our pre chosen songs! As I said, thank you so much for making the ceremony extra special, and feel that little bit more personalised! Everything about how you work, from the booking, to the day it self was stress free for myself, something that was very appreciated in the grand scheme of planning our wedding!!!
A huge thank you to Arco for making our ceremony special with your beautiful playing. I got my dream of walking down the aisle to Canon in D played by a quartet. Communication from start to finish was so easy and friendly. Our guests commented on how great you were. I’d gladly recommend you to anyone.
We really wanted to commemorate the launch of Downton Abbey on the big screen in a way that our guests would really remember their trip to Vue. Thanks to Arco String Quartet, who played a medley of classic film scores and tracks, everyone watching the film on the opening day was transported back to the era, making their trip to watch the film that much more immersive. Thanks to Arco String Quartet for all their help with this.
Thank you so much for being a part of our big day, you guys were absolutely fantastic and our guests thought the same. I had imagined a sunny day with you guys playing on the lawn but when it turned out rainy I thought it was actually really lovely that we were all stood inside the beautiful Doxford Barns celebrating whilst enjoying your beautiful music, it felt like it was meant to be. And it was a really special moment when all the guests had sat down for our entrance and myself and Dave got to enjoy your last song stood hand in hand; I’ll never forget that.
You guys were great, and really helpful, from the initial enquiry up to the day itself so thank you very much, we’re so pleased we booked you.
We just want to say a massive thank you for yesterday. You were so brilliant and so very very talented. Thank you so much for coming and being part of our day. We just wish we could have heard more of you! Thank you.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Arco – you were all absolutely magnificent at our wedding! We simply cannot thank you enough for playing such wonderful music for our wedding ceremony and reception. Our guests loved listening to your pieces and it provided the best atmosphere for our special day. We cannot recommend you highly enough!
Arco was absolutely amazing at our wedding. I didn’t realise how important having you all there was until it was all put together, watching my beautiful bride walk down the aisle couldn’t have been any better with you all playing behind us. Thank you again for a fantastic experience, the music was amazing and couldn’t have went any better.
I just want to say a massive thank you for keeping our guests entertained during our wedding! I cant reccomend Arco enough…nothing was a problem. We requested songs from the song list they sent over and also requested 1 song that wasn’t on the list. They were more then happy to practise the song for us as this was the song for signing of the register. All our guests commented on how great they were and the song choices went down a treat. Thank you once again!
Arco String Quartet were amazing!! From communication beforehand, to performing on the day, Arco were very professional and made us feel relaxed and excited about our wedding. The performance of all the songs were fantastic and we really liked your second piece of music when we were signing the register. Your range of song choice is really extensive and it was lovely to pick meaningful/fun songs for the different parts of our wedding. After the event, many of our guests commented on how great the quartet were and it was such a lovely surprise when they performed with my sister. Thank you so much!
Arco played at our wedding at Wynyard Hall in June, and were completely fabulous. The guests commented how beautifully they played and really added to the atmosphere of the day, both in the chapel and out on the lawn. I wasn’t sure what I kind of playlist I wanted, only that I didn’t want anything too formal, but Kirsty worked with me and our needs to make our day that bit more amazing. Thank you so much.
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.
We wish you all the best in the future and know you will continue to make everyone’s weddings as magical as ours was.
Just emailing to say a huge massive thank you for playing for us on our day. You really were a special part of our day. We feel so lucky to have all your musical talents with us on our day. I’m so sorry I didn’t get a chance to come over and speak to you all… Time really does fly on that day!
Thank you all so much again!
Karina and I could not have been happier with Arco, you were amazing. All of the music we heard was lovely and it definitely made our wedding day more special for us. All of our guests commented on how fabulous you were and that they thoroughly enjoyed your music. The Game of Thrones theme tune was a particular favourite of everyone. We also appreciated you working with Karina to arrange my surprise walk in music, it certainly made my entrance more memorable and I really enjoyed it, thank you. It was also really nice that when you told us the Marriage of Figaro music we had asked for was not the one listed in your playlist that you learned the music especially for us. You have gone above and beyond to make sure the music you played was exactly what we had hoped for. We would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone considering live music for their special occasion.
Thank you so much for playing for us on our wedding day. The feedback we have is only positive. It was a beautiful addition to our day and guests have fed back to us how much they loved the music and it gave the day a really elegant feel.
Having you play for us as I walked down the aisle was incredible and made an amazing moment even more magical.
It was everything we had imagined (and better) when we were planning the music for our day. So many many thanks to you all.
Thank you SO much for being part of Lucy & Adam’s day. I’m so sorry that I didn’t get to speak to you before you left and wanted to say a big thank you & pass on compliments from our guests.
Arco String Quartet were simply outstanding and created the most romantic atmosphere through their beautifully played music at our wedding. Having heard the quartet play at a friends wedding, we were desperate to secure them for our own.
From making the original booking through to the wedding day itself, the team have been wonderful and went out of their way to meet our needs. Requesting two new songs for our day, Arco String Quartet obliged and hearing them on the day made it extra special for us both.
All of our guests commented on how beautiful the music was and how seamlessly they transitioned from playing in the bar area as guests arrived, to the old barn for our ceremony and then back to the bar again. We felt it important that our guests were able to know the songs which were being played and therefore ensured their repertoire was displayed.
If anyone is looking to create a magical, romantic atmosphere at their wedding, with beautiful music that has the guests in tears of happiness – then look no further. We would recommend without hesitation.
Thank you so much for being an integral part of our special day it was appreciated so much, by so many.
I just wanted to thank you so much. The wedding was the 16th of Feb in the South Causey Inn and everyone loved you. We had so many compliments from our guests sayng how nice it was to have you play during the reception. I can’t say thanks enough you made our day perfect.
A huge thank you to you all for yesterday! The comments where amazing everyone loved the music and asked me who you were. The day was amazing thank you all so much X
Thank you for performing at our wedding reception – it really added to the atmosphere and we also received some lovely comments from our guests. We loved the way you performed the tracks we had chosen and I overheard lots of people chatting about the music. There is genuinely nothing I would change – we really enjoyed what you did.
Arco played at our wedding in Wynyard Hall. They are amazing. The songs they played were a mix of our choice and also what they thought would fit with the occasion. Professional and really just genuinely lovely people. Highly recommend. Thank you for making the start of our day amazing x
Thank you for yesterday, everyone thought you added a real classy feel to the event and the music was very appropriate. We look forward to the opportunity of having you play for us again!
Arco’s music list has something to suit everyone’s tastes and we were so happy with the choice of modern pop music as well as classics and pieces from some of our favourite films. Being able to create your own playlist really was an added bonus and made the experience very unique.
From start to finish the performance was effortless and I can’t thank Arco enough for helping us enjoy our special day with all of our friends and family.
I’ve heard nothing but praise for how great you guys were so thank you for putting on such a fantastic show!
Wow wow wow! Thank you guys so so much for making our ceremony absolutely incredible! It was like a dream and everyone mentioned how fantastic you guys were.
We’re now on our honeymoon and whilst we have a minute I’d just thought I’d drop you an email to say a massive thank you. You all made our wedding day! Watching the videos of the ceremony back with you all playing our favourite songs is just incredible! Gives me goosebumps every time we watch it! You are one set of VERY talented people.
Thank you so much for playing at mine and Ross’ wedding. The music was amazing and added such a wonderful atmosphere to our day! Our guests commented on how fabulous the music was and my husband said the music added an amazing atmosphere and build up when he was waiting for me to come down the aisle – thank you so much!!
A two-hour performance by this quartet was thoroughly enjoyed by my husband who was celebrating his birthday, by me and sixty guests. At all stages of our arrangements with them they were accommodating and obliging. They arrived punctually and needed no help to organise themselves. They provided the ideal ambience for a drinks reception which for me was the highlight of the evening. We had been concerned before the event about the balance between the volume of chatter and the volume of the performance. We need not have been concerned as it worked well. Arrangements by telephone, by email and by post were all straightforward.
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding at Alnwick Garden on 23rd July. I’m sorry we didn’t get chance to speak to you but we really appreciated you playing for us, and all our guests enjoyed the music too!
We booked Arco string quartet to play at my daughter’s wedding ceremony after seeing them at a wedding fayre two years previous. They had made a huge impression and as we began to plan the wedding they were always an option high on our list. Unfortunately we left it too late to have a quartet but we were lucky enough to have a duet to play, and they didn’t fail to amaze. The bride and groom had a large play list to choose from and to their amazement a lot of their favourite songs were on the list. Everyone paid lovely comments and we couldn’t have been happier with the performance. I would therefore highly recommend the Arco string duo or quartet, they are amazing professionals and I honestly believe anyone would be happy to them to perform at their wedding.
I could not recommend Arco string quartet more! I booked them for my wedding and they were absolutely fantastic. They set the perfect atmosphere and tone to my day and all my guests commented that they were the perfect addition to my outdoor wedding. They played every song beautifully from their wide repertoire of song choices, which includes everything from classical, modern, pop, jazz and easy listening. The whole booking process was easy and professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company if anyone is considering a string quartet.
My sincere thanks for your marvellous performance at our Concert last night. YOU ALL were the stars of the show!! I have little musical knowledge or inclination – I just like what I like and I certainly like your style of music and the exquisite sounds you produce. The compliments from guests were endless. Of course, I was heaped with ‘well dones’ for getting you in the first place.
Thank you so so much for playing at our wedding at Woodhill Hall on Monday! You were truly amazing and you were most certainly a talking point amongst our guests! ‘Thinking Out Loud’ played so beautifully by yourselves was so special to walk down the aisle to! Again thank you so much.
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for last Sunday – you were all incredible and having you there made the ceremony so magical especially walking down the aisle to ‘Some Day My Prince Will Come’. It’s a moment I’ll treasure forever Xx Also thank you all for moving around with us in that heat too!! We really appreciated it.
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. We were so pleased with the music at both the ceremony and reception and we got lots of comments from our guests about how much they enjoyed it.
All enjoyed the food and the company, but it’s always nice to hear old and new attendees loved the music too! Your selection was very well received and this event wouldn’t be the same without you.
I know I can make the booking and pretty much leave the rest to you, secure in the knowledge it will be another professional and polished performance, which means a great deal. Once again sincere thanks.
I was sat up in the bridal suite after staying really calm all morning, and just as I was starting to get my makeup done by an open window, you started playing at the front of the hall and it set me off in tears that continued until the speeches! Your music was so beautiful and just started the day in the exact way I had wanted, hearing you play outside was perfect.
Then the music you provided throughout the ceremony was so fitting for the venue and it was amazing to walk down the aisle to you playing. I really couldn’t recommend you highly enough and wish I could be there again to watch you play so beautifully.
You really added that special touch to our day that I will never forget. I would recommend you wholeheartedly for any event in the future.
The music was beautiful and was exactly what I had requested. The band were friendly and I have received many comments on the music adding to the sense of occasion to the party. The mix of classic and light jazz was perfect and every piece of music was played beautifully.
I can’t think of one single negative. Keep the date free for my 60th!!!!
Many thanks for making a memorable birthday.
There really was a bit of everything for everyone with your music, my friends loved Game of Thrones! and my nana and Mike’s grandma really enjoyed all your music too! Everybody really did love it. It really did make the day amazing and extra special.
Thank you again! I will be highly recommending you to friends, and hope to hear you all play again.
Thank you so much for playing such an important part in our day, you all helped make it so special!! 🙂
I know I didn’t get a chance to speak to you at the wedding, however it wasn’t just the ceremony we were impressed with, it was the whole service from the point of contact. You responded to our queries promptly, were polite, helpful and accommodating. We’ll definitely book you guys for our golden wedding anniversary party!!
Thank you very much for your wonderful contribution to what was a very special occasion. I hope you enjoyed it at least half as much as we did. I would be happy to give a personal endorsement to anyone considering engaging you.
We have to say a big thank you for making it to our big day. We had worried so much about the day going to plan, but when the snow started and didn’t stop the night before we expected a wedding without music, cake, photographer… and guests. But it went so well despite of the weather conditions and it meant so much to us that you all made the effort to travel in such conditions, which we know would not have been easy.
