Hire a Wedding String Quartet in Wiltshire
Much of our work is providing music for weddings and we have done this for over two decades! In this time we have hired many String Quartets for Wiltshire Weddings at venues such as Larmer Tree Gardens, New House, Wilton House, Old Wardour Castle & Grittleton House. A string quartet is by far the most popular choice for wedding ceremony music and with good reason. The sound is stunning and always makes a huge impression on everyone, creating a beautiful atmosphere of ceremony and grandeur.
Classical music is favoured by many brides for the bridal entrance and who cannot be impressed as the room resonates to Wagner’s The Bridal Chorus (Here Comes The Bride) or Handel’s Royal Fireworks Music, the Arrival of the Queen of Sheba or Pachelbel’s Canon (the most requested music for a ceremony). Just as many brides opt for more contemporary music to walk down the aisle to with popular music including Christina Perri’s ‘A Thousand Years’, ‘Perfect’ by Ed Sheeran, John Legend’s ‘All of Me’ or ‘Chasing Cars’ from Snow Patrol. All our Wiltshire String Quartets have a wide repertoire of music to suit most tastes and will be pleased to advise.
After the ceremony your wedding string quartet can easily relocate to another room or outside to play for the drinks reception. This is a time to relax, have a few drinks and get to know everyone a little more before the wedding breakfast so the music should be at a level which allows everyone to chat and still be heard but also enjoy a backdrop of entertaining beautifully played music. The string quartet is perfect for this and can really come into it’s own with a mix of music to please everyone from the kids to Gran & Grandad. Music could include Classic FM favourites from Vivaldi, Elgar and Debussy then some Sinatra, followed by music from ‘Les Mis’, Lion King, Hairspray and Pirates of the Caribbean. How about The Beatles, Queen, Coldplay and Bruno Mars!

Wiltshire String Trios
The String Trio is an ensemble similar to the string quartet but without either a violin or viola and is an option offered by many of our Wiltshire String Quartets. As the trio takes up less space this can be an advantage in a smaller room and there is also a saving in cost as there is one less musician, so perfect if you do not want to stretch your budget. The trio has become a popular choice for many couples however if you would like advice on which might be best for your wedding then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
