Hire A String Quartet

Is there a greater choice of ensemble for your wedding than a string quartet? Many would argue there is not. From classical to pop, jazz to Bollywood, the sheer range and variety of the repertoire for many string quartets is truly staggering. If you are concerned about the price, have you asked your preferred group if they perform as a string trio or even a string duo? Trios in particular can be a great way to save a bit of money and while the quartet is the ideal version, you are likely to achieve the same effect with a trio. Take a look at some of the wonderful string ensembles above and enjoy their sample recordings.

About Hire A String Quartet

Remember to ask for their repertoire lists and feel free to request specific songs, they can usually can these arranged for a small fee. Also worth noting that most string players require cover from the elements if playing outdoors.

Some wedding venues request that the musicians provide Public Liability Insurance and most musicians who play regularly at events will do. Try and get your string quartet to arrive 20-30 minutes before they are due to start playing even though it will only take them 5-10 minutes to set up. Musicians are always better value for money the longer you book them for. If you're thinking of hiring them for 1 hour to cover the ceremony, the chances are that a hour booking won't cost you too much more and that way you can get them to play for your wedding reception too.

Some of our favourite pieces for string quartet include Pachelbel's Canon in D, Dvorak's Humoresque and Schubert's Ave Maria (especially if the ceremony is in a church!). We have also heard some great arrangements of Guns 'n' Roses "Sweet Child of Mine" and "Somebody Told Me" by The Killers. The Game of Thrones theme tune is always a winner too!
