Hire a Wedding String Quartet in Poole

When it comes to wedding music Fantasia Music is the go to entertainment agency for many of the areas fine hotels and wedding venues and top of the list for wedding ceremonies and receptions are our Poole String Quartets. Not only do they play beautiful music but they offer excellent value for money as they can play for the ceremony and drinks reception rather than the need to hire musicians separately. This is because they can play a wide range of music from Classical to Pop so there can be traditional music for the ceremony and then different styles for the drinks reception.

Music for the ceremony is where a string quartet can really shine and there is nothing that comes close to the fantastic sound of expert musicians playing great string music. Many a bride’s dream is to walk down the aisle to the Mendelssohn Wedding March, Pachelbel’s Canon or Handel’s Water Music and that can be a reality with a string quartet. Others like a different style of music with recent weddings featuring music such as ‘All Of Me’ by John Legend, Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’ and ‘Greatest Day’ by Take That!. As our Poole String Quartets have a large and varied repertoire you can have the music you have always wanted for your special day.

After the formality of the wedding ceremony the drinks reception is where the bride and groom along with family and friends can relax, chat and look forward to the wedding breakfast. The music here should be able to please most people so you will find that your Wedding String Quartet will advise a mix of music, so expect popular classical music you might hear on Classic FM such as Elgar’s ‘Salut D’Amour’, Handel’s ‘Royal Fireworks’, Vivaldi’s ‘Spring’. Show tunes are always popular from shows such as ‘Phantom of the Opera’, ‘Cats’, ‘Wicked’ & ‘Chicago’ and then onto Pop and Rock with The Beatles, Madness, Clean Bandit, Stevie Wonder and Jason Mraz.

Poole String Trios

Beautiful string music is also possible with a smaller ensemble which works better for many couples where cost or available space might be an issue. The trio has one less instrument (either a violin or the viola) and the sound is a little lighter than the full string quartet, however this combination still gives an excellent sound. The trio option is one which most of our Poole String Quartets offer so if you are unsure which would be best for your wedding then we would be pleased to advise.
