For those who would like some inspiration in choosing repertoire, we have provided a wide variety of videos on our YouTube channel. Here you can view us performing samples of many popular pieces most commonly chosen by couples.

On the day

To give you an idea of how it works, we arrive 20-30 minutes before the booking time to set up and talk to the celebrant or wedding co-ordinator to ensure everything goes smoothly.

String Quartets for weddings work best if we begin playing as your guests start arriving so they have beautiful music as they gather; this creates a nice atmosphere. For a full Catholic mass we recommend a 90 minute booking to allow time for pre-ceremony music, offertory, communion as well as for the bride to be traditionally late.

Being the professional String Quartet for weddings, we will watch the proceedings and time our music according to your needs regardless of the length of your chosen music. Each song can be shortened or lengthened and will be concluded at the right time for the ceremony to flow smoothly.
