String Quartet Dorset, Hampshire and throughout the UK - Fantasia Music

String Quartets for hire in your area and throughout the UK for weddings, drinks receptions and parties

String Quartets are far and away the most popular choice to play music for a wedding. The String Quartet sounds beautiful, looks stylish and delivers an unrivalled mix of musical styles to satisfy most tastes.

A wedding usually has music playing fifteen minutes before the ceremony for the seating of guests. A string Quartet would normally play some Classical music for this however other music is always an option. String Quartets would then play for the entrance of the bride, signing of the register and exit and the music for these points would always be discussed with the String Quartet leader who will be able to advise if necessary.

After the ceremony most people opt for music at the drinks reception where the music is usually a mix of different styles including Classical, Film & TV themes, Popular Classics and pop arrangements – something for everyone.

Our professional String Quartets are listed below so for more information, music lists and audio please simply click the photo to visit their web page. Alternatively simply either email or call us for recommendations and advice.
