We are planning a summer wedding at Oakley Court Hotel just outside Windsor. We would like a string quartet for the wedding ceremony of approx 1 hr in church and then on to the reception at Oakley Court. We are hoping for a further 1.5-2hours during the reception drinks and canapés which will be outdoors in the grounds of the hotel. Therefore we would hope the quartet could meet us at the church for the entrance and for leaving the church and where possible in between and then to drive to the Oakley Court to continue during the canapés and reception drinks from around 2pm until 4pm.
We are getting married at Monks Barn, Hurley and are looking for an acoustic solo musician to play for the ceremony & drinks reception.
The barn only slow acoustic/ background music outdoors so would we need someone who is happy with that.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Hi, it a garden mini festival for my wife's 40th. I would only require you for 1 hour. It's starts at 4pm. So you could do 6-7 maybe. So you could perhaps go to another gig. Or 5-6. What ever suits you.
We are looking for mobile caters for our wedding reception evening food. Ideally street food/pizzas/burgers etc
The reception is in a Secret Walled Garden in Aldermaston, Reading.
There may be a slight hurdle, with an entrance into the walled garden being only 2.1m in width.
But none the less we are determined to find a unique and exciting caterer for our evening food.
Hi - we will be holding an office annual ball on 30 September. We are looking for 1 - 1.5hr entertainment before/after a meal, we expect to have around 320 guests at the venue. Please could you provide a rough quote? Thanks
It would be in a small church playing 2 hymns and then moving to outside at the vicarage to play for an hour or so while guests mingle.
Hope to speak more about this but guessing first thing is to know if you can do this date.
As a musician myself I was really impressed with your clips on youtube
We just wanted to email you to say a huge thank you to you and your team for playing at our wedding on Saturday at Stowe House. You were all fantastic!!! So many of our guests really enjoyed your music and told us that they loved the fact that you do modern covers. Your music kept the atmosphere joyful and relaxed - it was absolutely perfect. Thank you for making our day so special. We will never forget it.
All the best,
Sabrina and Andrew – Bride and Groom 30th July 2016 Stowe House
FourFour were very professional and provided an excellent performance, I wouldn't hesitate to book them again for another event. They came across very rehearsed and produced a fantastic sound with great harmonies. Well done and thank you.
