Amazing! Couldn't have asked for better! Played wonderfully for my ceremony, and throughout the drinks reception, all of my friends and family complemented how good they both were. Gareth kept in touch, and knew more about timings than I did, which made the whole thing easier to plan! If I was going to do it all again, I'd pick them over and over again! Not to mention the price is exceptional for the quality of what you get!

Aurora Quartet were absolutely phenomenal at my wedding they played while guests arrived into the church, whilst i walked down the aisle and also during the ceremony with Pandy Arthur -Soprano singing. Back at The Marcliffe Hotel for our reception we enjoyed another hour and oh what a breath taking performance they gave us! I requested a few songs and nothing was too much bother for Gareth to organise with fantastic communication from start to finish. Thank you Aurora Quartet for making our special day filled with such beautiful music.

"We were fortunate to have the Aurora Quarter perform at my wife's surprise 40th birthday yesterday.
I was looking for a classical performance that our guests would enjoy and Aurora quartet gave us that and then some.
Even from my first contact with Gareth from the Aurora quartet, I was impressed by the extent to which he was willing to work with me to find out what would best suit our audience.
At this event which was held at the Marcliffe, Cults we found the group of talented and accomplished musicians to be warm and friendly as we sat back and listened to them serenade us all with beautiful classical renditions of well-known pop songs.
The Aurora Quarter gave my wife's 40th a special, unique feel making it one celebration that would stay in the memory for a long, long time.
I would totally recommend the Aurora quartet for any wedding, party or function. You won’t regret it.
They were superb!"

"We decided that we wanted a quartet for our wedding and contacted various suppliers. Gareth from Aurora returned to us very quickly with a quote and we were very impressed with his approachable nature and professionalism. We signed up straight away. We asked that they could learn a particular song for us from the Braveheart movie and they did this and preformed it at the wedding so perfectly. We had a beautiful sunny afternoon and the quartet added a layer of sophistication to the wedding as they looked quite the part playing on the lawn. Our guests were very enamoured. My only regret is that I was in such a bubble of joy I didn't listen to the music nearly enough. I couldn't recommend them more.
Thank you so much, from Susan and Neil"

We booked the Aurora quartet at short notice for our wedding after hearing them play at a friend's wedding a few weeks before ours. Fortunately for us they were still available and Gareth got back to us very quickly, and was so professional and courteous to deal with. The quartet played outside in the courtyard of the hotel at our drinks reception, and all of our guests commented on how much they added to the atmosphere of the day. Although sadly, we as bride and groom didn't get to hear much as we were having photos taken at the church, we have since managed to listen to them on our wedding video, and couldn't be happier with their performance. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Aurora to anyone who is looking to add something a little different to their event! Thank you from Sheilann and Alexander.

"We hired Aurora Quartet on the recommendation of a friend. Gareth was extremely organised and professional to deal with and we were presented with a proper contract which was reassuring. Communication prior to the performance date was excellent. He made special arrangements of a couple of the pieces to suit our circumstances. The quartet performed in the church and then drove 15 miles to play at our drinks reception.
The wedding guests all said how wonderful and entertaining the music had been.
I can highly recommend Aurora Quartet and would hire them again."
