Leos Strings Quartet played at my wedding ceremony and for the duration of the drinks reception that followed it, which lasted for two hours. I had a clear picture of what I wanted and Leos Strings allowed me to achieve this vision perfectly. Having done an extensive search on the internet, I chose Leos Strings due to their extensive repertoire (one of the largest that I came across), the fact that they gave me free reign over the playlist and the impressive demos available online. <br /> Rachel was a pleasure to work with. Her communication was very efficient – she was happy to answer my queries and any questions I had were answered promptly. There were a couple of songs that I wanted for sentimental reasons that were not in their existing repertoire and she was able to source these at minimal cost. <br /> The quartet were fantastic on the day. All my guests complemented us on how much they enjoyed the music and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Leos strings to anyone looking for a string quartet.

Just a little email to say how beautiful your music was at our wedding last Saturday. Though I didn't hear a huge amount of it, as the bride, what I did hear was stunning! Certainly the bridal march and the exit song, I'm sorry I didn't get the chance to come over and say hello and thank you! Everyone said how wonderful it was though and how much it set the scene at our wedding, it was so 'us'! <br /> Hearing the music as I entered the church had the exact effect as it did the first time we heard you in a shopping centre! Just lovely. So thankyou again for your hard work, time and effort and for making our wedding church service so moving and personal to us! <br /> I cannot recommend you enough and hope I have reason in the future to work with you again, such a professional group!

Matt and I just wanted to drop you a note to say how amazing the guys were on Saturday, all of our guests commented on the wonderful music and the ceremony pieces in particular were just stunning and exactly what I had dreamt of! I also wanted to say a big thank you to you for all your help choosing the pieces and organising the music. It was great to have Leos strings be part of our special day. Thank you!

Thank you so much for the wonderful music you played at our wedding and for being such an integral part of our day - without you all it wouldn't have been the same and we are so glad that we booked you. All of our guests commented on how talented you all were and how nice it was to have live musicians rather than recorded music. We would not hesitate to recommend you to others and please let me know if you would like us to write any reviews on whichever site/page you use as we would gladly do so.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to the Leos Strings for playing at our wedding. We were so impressed with the guys and the music really made the atmosphere of the ceremony and reception. We really appreciate the hard work the guys put in so please pass on our thanks. We would not hesitate to use you again in the future and would highly recommend you also.

Just wanted to say a big thanks to you all from Gail and myself for the fantastic job you did at our wedding on Saturday. You sounded AMAZING!! Better than I could have imagined, everyone was talking about you, and the only disappointment was that I didn't get to hear more of you. Thanks a million.

The moment when Leos Strings began to play our favourite song before I walked down the aisle was absolutely spine-tingling. So many of our guests commented on what a beautiful touch it was to have a string quartet at the wedding, and I couldn’t recommend this one more highly. They have a wonderfully eclectic repertoire, so there was really something for everyone to enjoy - and Rachel was incredibly helpful in advising us before the big day about what sort of music would be suitable at various points during the event. Their presence throughout the afternoon of our wedding added a truly magical touch to the occasion.

I wanted to drop you a quick e-mail to thank you for playing at our wedding. We thought you were superb and the guests who spoke to us about it were also very complimentary. Hopefully we'll see you somewhere in the future :)

Leos strings were everything we had hoped for and more. Courteous and friendly when not playing, professional and accommodating when they were. The music was stunning.

We recently had the fantastic Leos Strings play at our wedding and are so happy we did. They were absolutely perfect for a wedding day and all of our guests loved the blend of classical jazz and contemporary pop they played in their unique style. We can't recommend Leos strings highly enough

I wanted to thank Leos strings for being a part of Peter and my wedding day today - they were absolutely perfect! From the professional and helpful planning by Rachel before our big day to the whole ensemble playing brilliantly before, during and after our service. We had so many people saying they really made the wedding service so special and loved every minute of them playing. I can't thank Rachel enough for being with us in our day and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
