“I saw Ariella Strings perform at a wedding a few years ago at a hotel I worked in, and it was love at first sight. I knew I had to have you involved in my wedding somehow, whenever that day would be! So when it came to us setting our date, you were among the very first bookings we made, along with our venue. Cheryl and John, you have been an absolute dream to work with. Your personalities and love for what you do shines through in every song you play. You were such a special and personal part of our day and our guests continue to rave about you, as do we. We will look for any excuse to book you in the future.” Lucy and Rob Galloway 21st August 2015 Luton Hoo Hotel – wedding ceremony and drinks reception
It was an absolute pleasure listening to Ariella Strings at our wedding! The traditional music at the church brought us such joy, while the upbeat music at our drinks reception had guests dancing on the lawn! Ariella Strings was the perfect touch to our perfect day! Thank you for sharing your talent with us! Kind regards, Jonathan & Muncelle Saturday 25th June 2016 Ceremony: All Saint's Church, Calverton Drinks reception: Calverton Cottage
"The playing by Paul and Anna was absolutely amazing and complemented the venue and the ceremony itself perfectly. We received so many compliments about the music from family and friends, and even to this day people are still talking about it!" - Felim Condron, Ireland, 2016
