5 Reasons to Book a String Quartet for Your Wedding

Live music is an excellent way to add extra sparkle to your wedding day, and what could be better than an elegant string ensemble to set the tone for your big day?

Whether you're looking for traditional classical music, musicals, or contemporary pop music, there's a string quartet, duo or trio out there for you. Here are our top 5 reasons to book one!

1. Strings add class and sophistication to any event.

Traditional, classical string music is something that will never go out of style. Bringing romance, elegance and charm, a string quartet will help create the refined, stylish atmosphere you've always dreamed of for your big day.

The Coral String Quartet from Manchester perform a range of classical and popular music to suit every couple's tastes.

2. They can play a huge variety of styles.

Most string quartets will be able to play almost anything! From traditional classical pieces to musicals or modern pop songs, strings are extremely versatile. London-based The Clemenza String Duo, Trio & Quartet have an extensive repertoire of classical, jazz, opera, musicals, pop, tangos and traditional music to suit any tastes! It's likely they'll also be willing to take requests, so you'll be able to hear your favourite songs on your big day.

Check out The Mersey String Quartet from Liverpool playing their version of A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman along with other popular and classical favourites.

3. They're compact and mobile.

String musicians do not need to plug into a PA system, so they can play almost anywhere in your venue! Perfect for your ceremony at the church or the champagne reception in the garden that follows, a string quartet can follow your guests to multiple locations.

Live music throughout your day will create an elegant atmosphere, and serve as a fantastic ice breaker for your guests.


4. They're cost effective.

As string ensembles can move between locations easily, you only need one band to take care of your whole day's entertainment. They can play while the guests enter the church, serenade the bride as she walks down the aisle, and while you're signing the register.

The Sakura String Quartet from Manchester even has a repertoire that includes hymns! Then after the ceremony, they can entertain your guests during your drinks reception and evening meal.

Here's their version of Perfect by Ed Sheeran.

5. They'll give your wedding the wow-factor!

A string quartet is not something you see every day! This is one of the finishing touches that will make your wedding day memorable for you and all your guests for years to come. To have the chance to see live classical music up close is something really special, and your guests will be blown away by the level of expertise on display.
