They played beautifully.

5 stars - Gold Strings are Highly Recommended booked Gold Strings for their Wedding in Berkshire

“We booked Gold String to perform at our wedding in November hoping they would give our relaxed venue a bit more of an elegant feel during the drinks reception. The trio were well organised both in communication beforehand and during setup. Their repertoire appeals to all ages and they played beautifully. I really would recommend.”

5 stars - Gold Strings are Highly Recommended booked Gold Strings for their Wedding at Rhinefield House Hotel in Hampshire

“I live abroad and had to conduct my search for a string quartet for my wedding through the internet. Alive Network was an amazing find as they have a comprehensive website, covering all areas of enquiry to enable a confident choice. All of my corespondence, enquiries and questions pre booking were dealt with promptly and professionally which made booking the quartet through this company very easy. I was equally impressed with the musicians I chose for my wedding. Again, they were professional, gave a high standard of performance and were very easy to deal with pre wedding. I would highly recommend Alive Network and Gold Strings for your wedding/event entertainment/music as they were a professional entity to work with and a fabulous part of my special day. Thank you to both.”
