Sussex String Quartets

With over 20 years experience in providing professional musicians for events Fantasia Music is proud of a roster of talent that includes String Quartets in Sussex. We only represent professional, experienced musicians and our string ensembles comprise string players who have graduated from the UK’s finest music colleges, academies and conservatoires as well as either being members or freelancing with major symphony and orchestras. It is not unusual for our Sussex String Quartets to play for a wedding on a Saturday and the following day be on stage with the London Symphony Orchestra or Brighton Philharmonic orchestra.

Hire a Wedding String Quartet in Sussex

The two counties of Sussex make up a large area and we have string quartets for hire throughout East and West Sussex. These ensembles play mainly for weddings and receptions and are in high demand particularly throughout the busy wedding season. A string quartet is top of many brides wish list to provide music for the wedding ceremony for a number of reasons and not least because of the wonderful sound they make. Nothing comes close to the atmosphere created as four skilled musicians play beautiful music to fill the room and add that extra bit of magic!

Music is such an important part of a wedding and as our Sussex String Quartets all have a wide range of music available they will be able to deliver a programme of music to suit all tastes. For the ceremony many couples prefer the romantic standards like Spring from Vivaldi’s 4 Seasons, Pachelbel Canon, Handel’s ‘Arrival of the Queen of Sheba’ or Wagner’s Bridal Chorus (Here Comes the Bride). A more contemporary feel is favoured by others with recent requests including ‘Lifted’ by The Lighthouse Family, ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight’ from The Lion King, ‘Marry You’ by Bruno Mars or ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’ by Elvis.

Choosing music for the signing of the register and exit will also need some thought however if you need advice of suggestions your Sussex wedding string quartet will be pleased to help. Many couples also hire the same musicians to play for the drinks reception which can be cost effective as well as simplifying things. It is simple for the string quartet to move from the ceremony to another area to play for the drinks as they play without the need for amplification. Music here is usually a mix of styles to please all so there will be something for grandparents, mums & dads, children and of course favourites of the bride and groom. How about Bach & Elgar onto The Beatles then music from the Jungle Book or Pirates of The Caribbean followed by some Michael Buble, Justin Timberlake, Coldplay and Lady Gaga!

Sussex String Trios

For wedding venues that might have limited space or where the budget for the full string quartet is out of reach the String Trio is well worth consideration. The sound is just a little lighter than the quartet as there is one less instrument (either the viola or one of the violins) however the sound is still beautiful. The smaller line up is something that most of our String Quartets in Sussex can also offer so if you are unsure about which would be right for you please feel free to call for a chat or email us and we will be delighted to advise.
