We had the rosewood string trio play at our wedding ceremony at Glasgow University and for an hour at our wedding reception at Pollokshields Burgh Hall. They were fantastic! They played beautifully throughout all aspects of our day with lovely choices of music. It added a touch of class and made the ceremony in the church very special and atmospheric. They were very easy to communicate with...Yvette was always prompt at replying and happy to help in any way over the months leading up to the wedding. They were open to any specific songs or music that we wanted to have and made sure we were happy with everything. The group knew exactly when and where they had to be...it was seamless. I couldn't recommend these musicians more for anyone who wants to add a touch of class to their wedding day!

Absolutely brilliant at our wedding on April 6th. No one knew we had you booked and it was all everyone spoke about throughout your time playing. Thanks again for playing out requests! Stephen and Ammie

Rosewood String Quartet (or trio for us!) were absolutely amazing at our wedding on 14th December at Mar Hall! They played so beautifully and I really had to hold back the tears as I entered the ceremony room! Booking process and all communication with Yvette was smooth from start to finish, couldnt have asked for more!! My biggest thanks to you all, you really added the perfect touch to a magical day and we had so many compliments xxx
