What event planners say about our suppliers


Thanks for coming out for the evening! Our wedding anniversary party went perfectly and the music was really flowing. We loved their eclectic variety of performances and were especially pleased with just how nice the performers were. The band really did well with presenting themselves and were more than happy to entertain everyone.


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.


Perfect addition to our wedding day! Had plenty of music options for us to choose from and even played extras not on their list. Our guests loved them and it made our day even more memorable Thanks again! Mr & Mrs Meadows
