We were fortunate enough to have the wonderfully talented Ariella Strings play at our daughter’s wedding in March. They were fantastic and sounded wonderful playing as our daughter walked down the aisle. They also played throughout the drinks reception providing fabulous back ground music whilst our guests mingled and chatted. Many of our guests told us they were a joy to listen to. From the first moment we first met Cheryl and John we knew they were the right people to play for us. They were always professional and listened to what our requirements were and ensured on the day we got exactly what we wanted. Thank you Ariella Strings for being an integral part of our daughters magical wedding day. Charles and Carol Elliott Pendley Manor 27th March 2016
Alison and I wanted to say a big thank you for your band’s fantastic performance at our wedding. We lost count of the number of people who commented on how good the band was and the dance floor was full from the first song to the last. Even the Events Manager/Master of Ceremonies from the hotel asked me where I found you as he was so impressed. Anyway we were absolutely delighted with your performances so please pass on our thanks to all members of the band. Thanks again
The band arrived on time, set up quickly and quietly in the garden, and did two sets with a short refreshment break. They were professional, looked fabulous, were approachable, and just an absolute pleasure to have. They entertained our guests brilliantly, and everyone commented on how fantastic they were. Thank you.
