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.

Hi 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.
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.

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. Many Thanks Craig
Indoor church ceremony. Looking for a string quarter to play as guests arrive, at the entrance of the bride, during the signing of the register and as the bride and groom depart the church.
we require a dj for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception of the wedding, the venue is indoors.
Here's a basic breakdown of what we're after: • The event takes place in the evening, there will be roughly 400 guests. The venue is in London. • We'd like some background music while guests are arriving, this could be with acoustic instruments, seated, a mixture of light and classical. • After dinner we're looking to have a fully choreographed electronic quartet show, high impact, anlong the lines of Escala, of around 45 minutes if that's possible (let me know if that's too long for this type of show) • We'll be producing the event and all lighting, sound equipment needed will be provided, but let me know if you have a preferred sound engineer who you use for live shows, and what his/her rate is likely to be.
Good afternoon, I have had a look at your website and wanted to enquire for a wedding on the 22nd of July 2017 at Farnham Castle. It is a fairly traditional wedding with a religious ceremony in the castle chapel, followed by some canapés (with some music from you) and a wedding breakfast. We are looking to have 2, 3 or 4 musicians to play at the beginning of the wedding ceremony, a few hymns during the ceremony, and for about another 45min after the ceremony. We would require you to move from the chapel, where the ceremony is taking place, to the Stone hall after the ceremony. Overall this would be a total of 1:30h to 2h. If you could send me a quote for a duo, trio and quartet for 2h, along with any additional charges. If you could also send me a repertoire of hymns so we can consider the ceremony accordingly. I look forward to hearing back from you soon. Regards, Guilherme Beirao
Indoor wedding at St Pancras Station, London Music for half hour before ceremony, a couple of songs during the service and then play for half hour after the ceremony, all popular love songs rather than classical.
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
Ariella Strings performed for us at our wedding at Stowe House in July 2016, and became a central part of our afternoon. While we were searching for bands, some groups we spoke to were very prescriptive with the set they were willing to play, whereas Ariella Strings were hugely accommodating in letting us choose a list of songs that we wanted from their extensive playlist - even stretching to their brilliant Jukebox Live idea, where guests can request tracks from the list we'd provided. This was a huge hit with our guests (to the point they didn't want to come in for food!). John and Cheryl were absolutely lovely to deal with while preparing for our big day, and excellent musicians too. We were having our photos taken for the majority of time Ariella Strings were playing, but it was clear all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed it - especially my three year old niece who requested "Let It Go" as often as she could! Four months on from the wedding, our friends still mention Ariella Strings whenever we reminisce about the day. We're hoping one of them takes our recommendation soon, so we can enjoy them fully without being bothered by a photographer!
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!
