"Thank you so much for making our day so special. Everyone had a fab time & thoroughly enjoyed your music - much more in keeping for a wedding than jazz or piano in my eyes! Please thank all your ""team"". They were brill. You were right to play through the meal too ! Will recommend you to anyone looking for a string quartet. Thanks again Fay - Love"

"We've at last got round to sending you these photographs and thanking you for making our Wedding Day so memorable and complete. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole event, small as it was , your music and presence filled the room with an unforgettable joyous atmosphere.
So much so, that now when l hear a string quartet playing on the TV or radio, I'm immediately taken back to our happy day!! I only wish we had taken a video of some of the day to savour for ever!"

"Thank you all for making the music at the wedding of our daughter truly memorable. We were touched by how enchanting & beautiful the music sounded especially the songs we requested as they are both extremely special & sentimental to our family. You promised that they were lovely but they were more than that - they were perfect. Let us know if you're uploading ""Africa"" & ""You Have A Friend In Me"" to your website--we'd love to hear them again so that we can reminisce . Everyone commented on how your sound added to a beautiful day & we're delighted you played for us. Hope it's not too long before we get to hear you all again.
Many thanks and lots of love"

Thank you so much for playing at my wedding yesterday, you helped to make my day perfect. Every single guest commented on how fabulous you all were and how the music made the ceremony and reception that little bit more special. Your attention to detail and the way the music was composed was superb. Once again thank you again from a very happy bride. Highly highly recommend Carlton Ensemble x
