Wedding. Play whilst people are seated, walking down the aisle and reception drinks.
Hello, My fiancée Emma and I are getting married at South Farm (postcode SG8 0HR) in Cambridgeshire. We are keen to book a string quartet to play during an outdoor, relaxed drinks reception for 2 hours (roughly 2.30 until 4.30) on Saturday 10th September 2016 We would like a mix of contemporary and covers (with a small amount of classic) though we have no other preference apart from that. We would really appreciate your help to know if you know of anyone who would be interested/ could fulfil the above criteria. Many thanks, and look forward to hearing from you. Matt and Emma
I am getting married in Cambridge in a few weeks time (13 August) and we are looking for a string duo/trio to play at our ceremony and possibly during our drinks reception also. We would like them to play whilst guests are arriving and I would like to walk in to pacabels cannon in D. Could you let me know if there is any availability for this date and what your prices are?
The wedding will be held Newnham College, and we would hope to have music as the guests enter the ceremony room. The ceremony starts at 1.00. It should take half an hour. If the weather is nice, we hope the music will continue on the lawns while guests have canapés, etc.and the photos are taken. If it should rain, we have a room inside! We would like the music to play until 2.30.. 0 There can be no amplification.. Thank you!
We plan on getting married on 2nd April 2016 at Hampden House. We are currently looking for a string quartet or duo to play during our drinks reception and wedding breakfast and I was wondering if you would be able to give me a quote. Would you also be kind enough to answer a few questions also: 1. What's your backup plan if there's an instrument malfunction? 2. Do you have liability insurance? 3. What's your sick-day policy? 4. Do you have any packages that might be suited to us? 5. Would you be open to taking song requests from the bride and groom if agreed upon before the wedding day?
We are looking for a classical guitarist to play background music during our dinner, at Jesus College, Cambridge University. The dinner is part of a wedding celebration, but we are NOT looking for a guitarist for the church ceremony on Tuesday afternoon. JUST for dinner. There will be only 14 people, at the most, in the Alcock room at Jesus College. Guests will start arriving at 7:00, and we ask for the music to be played for perhaps a half hour, with a 10 or 15 minute break, followed by another half hour. I am guessing, because I really don't know who these events proceed. It is essential for us that the entertainer NOT smoke, because we do not want the lingering smell of tobacco on the entertainer's clothing.
Hi I am looking for a string trio (to include violin and cello) for my classical romantic wedding on 16 April 2016 between noon and 4:30 pm with a one hour break between 1pm and 2 pm, all indoors. The venue will be in central London near Hyde Park. I'd be very grateful if you could please respond to the following queries: - would you be available then? - what would the rate be for a trio? - I will have 2 special songs that might not be on your repertoire. Will it be possible for the musicians to play these? Will the rate change accordingly? - number of guests will be 80. - have you already got a slow waltz song in your repertoire for duo or trio? If so, can you please send me the title? - do you bring your own sound equipment? If not, what would you need? - will I be able to advise on the outfits worn by the musicians (knee length skirts as a minimum and with sleeves, classical outfits)? Thank you for your response.
Wedding reception- 120 guests- marquee venue- in bawtry, doncaster
wedding at Kettlesing Village Hall, North Yorkshire. Looking for a band for the evening time - approx 7.30 until midnight. You came recommended from a friend! Just after rough idea of prices also. Many thanks.
hi, yes, its on a canal cruise boat in Odiham Hampshire (close to Hook), starting at 730pm til 10/11pm (finish depends on water levels, at present the water level is low so finish times currently at 11) We would like a good range of music from classics like Fleetwood mac/90's/amy winehouse/ to present. It is a small venue and the boat at times will be near houses so t doesn't need to be too loud! There is limited electricity supply as it is a canal boat but there is a socket available for use with extension., it may be easier to have a battery powered PA if possible as the output on the boat is limited. We are having hot food delivered at 9 to the boat which would create a natural break. Food/soft drinks will be provided. Its a 40th birthday party and set up could start from 7pm
Hi our wedding is 24/10/15 Would love to find out about your availability and what you offer for about £600? Thanks,

Corporate ball, looking for a quote for around 2.5 hrs of music with an interval if possible? It will be at the Norwich City Football club. Party style of music with a mix of old and new songs.
A huge thank you to Cheryl, John and Laura of Ariella Strings who played so beautifully at our drinks reception in the orangery and wedding breakfast at Barton Hall, which was thoroughly enjoyed by us and our guests! The list and styles of music from which to choose from was amazing and it was really helpful to talk through our requirements for the day with John and Cheryl; their advice invaluable and who also accommodated our special arrangements, brilliantly! Ariella Strings were truly amazing and we can't thank them enough for being a part of our very special day.
We're absolutely chuffed that we booked Soul in the Belfry for our wedding. The song choices were perfect and they did a beautiful rendition of a Bob Marley song for our first dance. All of our guests commented on how talented they are and how they brought a fantastic end to the evening!
The night went very well and people really enjoyed the band. Only problem was the band wasn't loud enough and we ah e to move then from where we Isley out our bands mid way through so the Bay Area could hear them. To be honest it was much busier than we expected so it wasn't a fault of anyone just an issue we experienced.
