Outstanding and Beautifully performed

5 stars - Garden String Quartet are Highly Recommended
booked Garden String Quartet for their event in Hertfordshire October 2022

“We had the pleasure of having Gardino the Garden string quartet for our Long Service awards lunch last week Friday and they were spectacular. They played a mix of background music of all genres for our drinks reception as well as during our lunch. They also provided an on stage show playing severely more modern songs which the guests really enjoyed. This added tremendously to making the day a success. Thank you you were fantastic”

Perfect vibe for our wedding

5 stars - Garden String Quartet are Highly Recommended
booked Garden String Quartet for their Wedding in Berkshire September 2022

“I requested “Bridgerton type vibes” and that’s exactly what we got! So many people commented on how good the quartet sounded and were playing along to try and guess the songs they were playing, exactly what we were going for. I first heard them as I was waiting to walk down the aisle and I must say it’s exactly as I had envisaged. They played before the ceremony, as I walked down the aisle, signing off the marriage certificate and exit. In addition, they played for our canapé reception, I’m so pleased with the ambience they created and I’d 100% recommend to others”


5 stars - Garden String Quartet are Highly Recommended
booked Garden String Quartet for their Wedding in Hertfordshire July 2022

“Giardino Strings are a wonderful string quartet who are highly experienced and talented professionals who know exactly what they're doing. David is wonderful and professional to deal with, and they took the care to note down all the pieces I wanted played, and took the time to check in on what I wanted beforehand and on the day. They speak with the venue planner on the day as well to ensure everything goes smoothly. Our guests loved them and all commented on how the music was absolutely fabulous, including from other musicians who were attending as guests! Thank you David and Giardino Strings!”

Exceptional wedding string quartet

5 stars - Garden String Quartet are Highly Recommended
booked Garden String Quartet for their Wedding in Surrey

“We can't recommend Garden String Quartet highly enough. They played a range of classical music and augmented the organist to accompany the hymns. Prior to the day, they worked with the church to make sure they had everything they needed. On the day, they arrived perfectly on time to play when guests arrived. Their powerful sound filled the church without being overbearing. Their professionalism and musical talent meant they blended seamlessly into our service.”
