Hire a Wedding String Quartet in Berkshire
A String Quartet is the most popular request to play live wedding music for a ceremony or reception and nothing sets the scene or sounds better. The sound of expert musicians playing wonderful music is something very special and our Berkshire String Quartets all have the repertoire to suit your taste in music whether it be Vivaldi or Ed Sheeran!
2x violins, viola and cello is the classic quartet set up and this 4 part harmony can work well for Classical, Baroque, Pop or TV & Film music. We find that most wedding ceremonies no longer follow the lines of having Classical music throughout, but include a mix of Classical and lighter music. There are evergreen favourites for the bridal entrance such as Wagner’s Bridal Chorus and Canon in D by Pachelbel however some prefer ‘Marry You’ by Bruno Mars or Des’ree’s ‘I’m Kissing You’.
We always advise for couples to speak directly with the musicians to ensure the music is perfect for a wedding however when playing for a drinks reception there is definitely a trend for our Berkshire String Quartets to play a mix of different styles of music. This works well as there is usually a wide range of age groups at a wedding so a programme of Classical, Pop, TV & Film themes plus popular songs from theatre shows is a winning combination. Think Vivaldi, Handel, Sinatra, The Beatles, Coldplay, Game of Thrones!

Berkshire String Trios
Although the classic String Quartet is pre eminent for wedding music the string trio offers an option if space is at a premium or if the budget is not available for the quartet. The sound of the trio is excellent and actually preferred by some couples. Many of our Wedding String Quartets offer the smaller ensemble however the repertoire tends to be smaller with this.
