Anna Healion
Arta string quartet played absolutely beautifully on our wedding day - can’t recommend enough. They are incredibly talented musicians who created such a beautiful atmosphere at our ceremony and played a great variety of music at our drinks reception. Also really appreciate them putting up with so many emails from me with me in advance of the day - changing my mind, asking questions and asking for samples. They couldn’t have been more helpful!
Gemma Cannon

Arta played beautifully at our wedding! They were so professional; didn't even flinch when my mom accidentally bumped in to one of them- just picked right back up. I would recommend them for your event!

Arta string quartet played at our wedding in July and they were incredible. So many people have commented on how much they loved the songs and how well they played them. I would definitely recommend booking them for your wedding, both for the ceremony itself and the reception (as they can play such a wide variety of songs). Thank you for making our day so special.

Arta string quartet played at our wedding ceremony and drinks reception in May of this year! They were absolutely fantastic on the day and so many of our guests commented on them! I can’t recommend the band enough, and they really brought the whole tone of the day to another level! Thanks again!

Big thank you to the very talented members of the Arta string trio who played at our wedding in September of this year. The music during our ceremony was so beautiful as was the more upbeat music during our reception! Our guests loved it as did we, would highly recommend :)

Arta string quartet played our wedding ceremony and drinks reception in September this year. They were absolutely fantastic musicians and so easy to deal with and very professional all round. Would highly highly recommend them. Thanks again for adding so much to our day!!
Claire & Sean Dobie
Arta String Quartet played our on the day music at our wedding on 15th September 2018 at the Glasshouse. As we were having a small wedding we booked a trio to play our outside ceremony. Arta were only too happy to play our pre-selected songs for walking down the aisle and signing the register. They even kept the song my dad had picked for us to walk back down the aisle to, a secret until the moment on the day. When the weather got a bit chilly outside, they quickly moved inside to continue playing for all our guests during the champagne reception. All our guests commented on how nice this was and everyone enjoyed the varied selection of music. I would highly recommend Arta String Quartet and thank you for being part of our special day.
