What event planners say about our suppliers


"We are really delighted that we chose Ariella Strings to perform at our wedding. Having a live string trio perform the music for our ceremony and reception was a very special touch that really enhanced the atmosphere on our wedding day. Ariella were really efficient and professional in the run-up, sorting the contracts and helping us to select the music and plan the day. The performance itself was excellent and we and our guests really enjoyed it. We selected classical music for the ceremony, and some string arrangements of modern pieces for a more informal fun feel at the reception. We would certainly recommend Ariella to anyone planning a future wedding or special event in the area." Louise and Tim - Wedding Ceremony & Drinks Reception Woburn Abbey Sculpture Gallery November 2015

“I just wanted to say a massive thank you for last night! You guys were absolutely brilliant….you totally got the party rocking, everyone had a great time! Literally everyone came up to me and told me how awesome you were so thank you very very much! You made my husbands 40th very memorable! I’ve been to many parties recently where the live music has cost 2 or 3 times what you charge and were just nowhere near as good as you guys. I got a few photos of you guys playing so if you are happy for me to put your contact details on I know you’ll get a lot more bookings from it! Thanks again, we will certainly be booking you again”! Natalie Overton – 40th Party – Weybridge, Surrey


Cheryl, We would like to thank Ariella String Trio who played at the Sculpture Gallery on 9th July. The music was excellent and certainly added to the positive emotions of walking down the aisle and the whole atmosphere in the ceremony and at the reception. Our day was so special and holds so many great memories. We are both still walking on air. Thank you so so much. Regards, Jayne and Steve Cooper
