For Weddings, we offer a selection of Packages (with prices) on our website. These range from Basic (just Spring Quartet pre Ceremony & Ceremony)to Package 3 Ultimate, which covers pre-Ceremony, Ceremony, drinks/photos and Wedding Breakfast and includes pieces from Ponticello electric violin duo and Emilya on solo alto sax.
We are a family of musicians who have been playing together for weddings, corporate functions and concerts for over 17 years. We bring the warmth and musical skills of our family into the music we play, which is a sort of 'Classic FM meets Radio 2' mixture, from baroque, classical, romantic, Viennese, swing, pop, even rock!
Emilya, the leader of the Quartet, also takes on solo violin engagements, with or without featured items on alto saxophone from £180.
Ponticello (Emilya & Penny) also take on engagements independently of the Quartet from £350.
We tailor our programme to create a pleasant ambiance which will help to ensure your guests will retain pleasant memories of your special day.
After all these years, we know how weddings run, which is seldom to time! That's why we book by the session, not the clock - if you're running late you don't need the additional worry of wondering if your musicians are going to still be there when you need them!

"Good morning David and family,
We just wanted to say a big Thank you to you all for giving up your New Years Eve to come and play at our wedding. You were all absolutely amazing and everyone has commented how great you were and you really added to the atmosphere. Is there anywhere we can leave a review? As we will be highly recommending you to everyone in the future. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your day and Happy New Year!

The Spring Quartet
I first heard the spring quartet play at one of my friends weddings and since then I knew I wanted them to play at ours. David and his family played at our wedding on New Years Eve and they were absolutely amazing! Everyone commented on how great they were. We booked them to play from just before the reception until we had finished our meal and we are so glad we did it just saved the sometimes awkward silences. Their choice of music ranged through the years and it was just perfect. David was always prompt in replying if I had any queries and he even helped me select the music choices as the registrar needed to know and we hadn't decided yet. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the spring quartet they are amazing and so talented such a lovely family I hope we have the pleasure of listening to you play again sometime soon thank you from Katie and David"
Will the Quartet play for the Ceremony in church and the reception at a seperate venue?
Yes, at no extra cost if the venue is within 5 miles of the church
Will the Quartet play my favourite tune for part of the Ceremony, even if it is not on their play list?
The Quartet will always try to add any playable piece of music for your Ceremony for no extra charge.
How far will the Quartet travel?
Our normal radius is 45 miles, for which there is no travel charge. The Quartet will travel further but time and fuel costs would need to be taken into consideration when quoting the fee.
