1. Set Your Budget

Before you start booking venues and vendors, it’s essential to determine your budget. Your budget will guide all your decisions, from the venue and catering to the flowers and entertainment. Allocate funds for different categories and make sure to set aside a portion for quality live music.

2. Choose Your Venue

Your venue will influence many other decisions, including the type of music that will best complement the setting. Whether you choose a grand manor house, a rustic barn, or a charming garden, Four Seasons String Quartet can adapt to any setting, providing beautiful music that enhances your venue’s natural beauty.



3. Finalise Your Guest List

Knowing how many guests you’ll be inviting helps in planning the scale of your event. It also affects your music needs; for instance, a larger venue with more guests might benefit from amplified sound to ensure everyone can enjoy the quartet’s performance.



4. Select Your Music

Music is the heart of your wedding’s atmosphere. From the moment your guests arrive, to your walk down the aisle, the reception, and even the last dance, music sets the tone. Four Seasons String Quartet offers a versatile repertoire, ranging from classical pieces to contemporary hits, ensuring that every moment is accompanied by the perfect melody.



5. Hire Your Vendors

Once your venue is secured, it’s time to book your vendors. This includes catering, florists, photographers, hair and beauty stylists, and, importantly, your musicians. Booking Four Seasons String Quartet early guarantees their availability and allows you to coordinate your music choices with other aspects of your wedding.
