Recent review: Hot Shoes really made the night! We were having a 1920/30s-themed wedding and Hot Shoes provided us with the icing on the cake.

Wedding - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire

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.

Celebration - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire

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.

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?

What event planners say about our suppliers


Cheryl and John, Jeff and I would like to say a huge thank you for your part in our wedding ceremony. From the moment we started planning our wedding, I knew exactly what music I wanted to walk down the aisle to; Pachelbel’s Canon. I had imagined my walk down the aisle over and over again and on the day you truly made my dreams come true. Hearing the introductory notes before I started walking gave me spine chills, your talent is breath-taking. Other memories include when we signed the register and I could hear ‘Its all about you’ by Mcfly’ being played. It really made me smile. We would also like to thank you both for learning a new song at such short notice so we could walk back down the aisle together to Jeff’s favourite song ‘ Don’t stop believing’. It was a lovely upbeat piece of music and is another great memory. I should also mention that many of our guests also commented on how talented you both were, and how much they enjoyed your music. One guest described you as ‘the best he has ever heard’. We really can’t thank you enough, best wishes, Lucy and Jeff, Cathedral Church, Northampton – 9th April 2016.


Hi , Thank you so much for playing at our anniversary celebrations. The group arrived on time & were ready to start when requested. I received lots of positive comments on the quality and selection of music and guests asked me how I came in contact with the group . I will certainly recommend Trifonics to my friends . I like the way the group fell into the spirit of the occasion , were quite relaxed and were able to enjoy the special meal. Once again a very big Thank You for helping to make our 45th wedding anniversary so special!


4tissimo played at our ceremony and wedding breakfast and I can't praise and recommend them enough! Not just wonderful professional musicians, but also very lovely people, who made our wedding day extra special! We spoke to Kim over the phone before the wedding, she made sure that we have discussed everything, gave me few advices, and on the day absolutely everything ran smoothly and to the plan!! I can highly recommended 4tissimo to everyone looking for a bespoke musical accompaniment for the most classy events! Sophistication and amusement are guaranteed!
