Trends come and go however the most popular music for a wedding and drinks reception in the Hampshire area is from our Hampshire String Quartets who’s beautiful sounds create an amazing atmosphere. There is a air of majesty as the quartet accompanies the bride on her aisle walk, particularly when the music is a classic like Handel’s water music, Pachelbel’s Canon or Wagner’s Bridal Chorus (Here Comes The Bride). The music does not have to be classical and more and more these days our String Quartets in Hampshire are asked for a different style of music such as ‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri, ‘Marry You’ by Bruno Mars or ‘One Day Like This’ from Elbow.

Another reason string quartets are so popular is that they can also play for the drinks reception, and as they play acoustically they have the ability to move easily if the drinks reception is in another room or area. Here they will be able to entertain with a wide repertoire including well known classical music such as Vivaldi’s 4 Seasons, Bach suites, Elgar Chanson du Matin and Ravel’s ‘Bolero’, then onto Show & Film music from Sound of Music, My Fair Lady or Hairspray, not forgetting Star Wars, ET, The Lion King & Toy Story. Pop and rock songs could well feature the music of The Beatles, Coldplay, Queen, Take That or Pharrell Williams.

Hampshire String Trios

The String Trio is another very popular choice for a wedding ceremony and drinks reception and many of our Hampshire String Quartets offer this smaller three piece ensemble option. The traditional string quartet has 2 violins, viola & cello however when playing as a trio either a violin or the viola are omitted. The sound is still beautiful and many couples prefer the lighter sound it makes as well as the saving on available space and of course cost. If you are unsure which might be best for your requirements then we would be pleased to advise.
