We first came across Ariella Strings from searching the internet when looking for a string quartet for our son's wedding. We were very impressed by their prompt, friendly and helpful response. Their professionalism meant we were in good hands through every step of the planning. They even made the personal touch of taking time to meet with us to discuss our choices.
Music has been a big part of our son and his wife's lives and Ariella Stings brought a magical touch to their wedding reaching all generations of our family and friends, who had travelled from different parts of the world to be there. The feedback from them has been amazing.
It was far above our hopes and dreams for this most important occasions of our lives and words cannot express how grateful we are for the joy Ariella Strings brought to this most perfect day. We recommend them without hesitation.
With our grateful thanks and very best wishes
