Services From Giulia London Violinist in London
I am Giulia, a professional violinist based in North London. I am available to play at weddings, proposals and events in and outside London.
I have a classical background and I love playing pop covers with acoustic violin or backing tracks.
I customize each wedding to match my clients' preferences of style and music and I accept specific song requests. You can send me your favorite songs and I will make sure to add them to my playlist for the day.

Giulia did a fantastic job at our wedding at the Corinthia Hotel. Her music was faultless and we found her friendly, professional and reliable throughout the wedding planning and on the day.
Giulia also came up with good suggestions of music she could play before the ceremony and during the reception. We thoroughly recommend Giulia.

Thank you very much for attending and performing for us yesterday. We all enjoyed the music and also appreciated your relaxed and friendly personality.
Alexia and Jerome have also asked me to say a special 'thank you'.

I booked Giulia for my father's church funeral service. She's the ultimate professional and such a lovely person to go with it. She played 'Make me a channel of your peace' & 'Immaculate Mary' and it was superb- the sound of her antique Italian violin was so poignant. The mourners were all commenting how special the service was. Looking forward to booking her services again, but hopefully, next time, under happier circumstances.

We asked Giulia to play at our wedding anniversary to try to forget we had to celebrate it in lockdown. It worked! Giulia is such a talented violinist. We loved her music choices and we felt so spoiled to have a concert just for us! I hope there will be the occasion to meet again
How long do you play for?
I perform from 30 minutes up to 4 hours.
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
I have PLI covering for myself and my violin
How much space do you require?
It varies depending on the type of ceremony, space and performance you would require. For a wedding ceremony performance I would need very little space. I usually play standing (for ceremonies I place myself usually close to the entrance of the room in order to greet guests and overlook the ceremony). I can also play seated if required by the type of ceremony, and in that case I would just need a chair and a little space where to perform comfortably
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
I have a classical background but I am happy to accommodate specific requests and to play covers. Here a few examples of songs I can play at your event. - Viva la Vida (Coldplay) - A Thousand Years (Christina Perri) - Can't Help Falling in Love with you - Circle of Life (The Lion King) - Con te partiró (Andrea Bocelli) - Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah - Somewhere over the Rainbow - All of me (Jhon Legend) - Arioso (Bach - violin solo) - My hearth will go on - Perfect (Ed Sheeran) - La Vie en Rose - Largo (from the four seasons - Vivaldi) - Ave Maria (Schubert) - Swan Lake - 1st theme (Tchaikowsky) - Pachelbel Canon - Bach Suite (arranged for violin solo) The above are the ones preferred and most booked by my clients so far but I have many more to propose and I am happy to arrange any tune of your choice upon request.
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
Depends on the ceremony. For instance I can play no stop for 1 hour, and then have a little break of 10-15 minutes before to start playing again.
A typical wedding ceremony format
I arrange a customizable service for your wedding ceremony. I perform acoustic solo violin in a varieties of styles to suite your taste and I am happy to accommodation specif song requests. A typical ceremony format consists in the following: Intro music: I perform lively classical and pop covers music as guests arrive and take their seats Ceremony: I perform your preferred tune as the bride processes down the aisle, timed to finish when the bride arrives at the altar. Signing of the Register: I perform light classical music while the bride and groom sign the register, to maintain a good atmosphere and entertain the guests End of Ceremony: I perform a lively piece of your choice during the bride and groom exit, and I continue until all guests leave the room If you want to have a music background during drinks reception, lunch or dinner, I can continue playing soft music after the ceremony.
