Giardino Strings were absolutely perfect

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

“Giardino Strings were one of the many reasons we had a perfect wedding. Performing during the church ceremony and reception drinks, they were brilliant. They were incredibly accommodating with our song choices, playing everything we asked for and more. Our friends and family loved every minute of their performance and we wouldn't hesitate in hiring them again for another celebration. I can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you so much for making our day so special. Liam & Anna”


Fantastic and professional quartet

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

“Would definitely recommend the Garden String Quartet and use again. They were fantastic when playing at the ceremony and drinks reception of our wedding. For the ceremony they made it that much more special and for the drinks reception they were great while not obtrusive .”


Super......highly recommended!

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

“Great repertoire. Left to their own devices they tend towards pop, but we insisted on classical and they tailored the music very much to our taste. David is superbly organised, the entire ensemble is technically accomplished, they are very personable and look good as a group.”
