Southern Strings: The Perfect Choice for Modern Ceremony Music

5 stars - Southern Strings are Highly Recommended
booked Southern Strings for their Wedding in Kent April 2023

“I recently had the pleasure of working with Southern Strings for my wedding ceremony music, and I can confidently say that they were fantastic. I would give them a five-star rating without hesitation. Southern Strings provided the perfect soundtrack to our modern ceremony. They were able to take the contemporary songs we had chosen and transform them into beautiful instrumental arrangements that perfectly fit the mood and ambiance of our wedding. Their musicianship was truly exceptional, and their playing added a level of elegance and sophistication to our ceremony that we will always treasure. What impressed me the most about Southern Strings was their flexibility and professionalism. They were always open to our suggestions and worked with us to ensure that the music for our ceremony was exactly what we wanted. They were also punctual and reliable, showing up early to set up and ensuring that everything ran smoothly throughout the day. Overall, I would highly recommend Sout...”

String Quartet

Full Biography

Southern Strings are a brand new, fully-fledged string quartet. Their four members are highly trained performers and active professional musicians and teachers. They are all graduates from top music schools, universities and conservatoires from around the UK.

Southern Strings are suitable for a range of indoor and outdoor settings, whether it be gentle background ambiance or putting them as the musical forefront of your event. They own a range of classical, pop, rock, film and traditional repertoire and are there for your wedding, christening, concert, corporate event or even birthday party!

Southern Strings love to perform all of your favourite songs and are happy taking special requests off of their song list at no extra charge to you. They are also able to arrange pieces of music especially for you (note: there is an extra charge for this), so that they are exactly the right fit for your day.

Southern Strings can perform as a solo violinist or cellist (with PA system), or as a tasteful string duo if you're looking for beautiful string music within that perfect budget-saving option. If you want to go all out and require a bigger sound, however (or are simply hosting a slightly larger event with more guests) then a string trio or string quartet would definitely be the better option for you! Please call for a bespoke quote for these line-up options.

If you're looking for that elegant, high-end touch for your special event, then look no further as Southern Strings are without doubt the ideal quartet for you.
