5 stars - The Midlands String Quartet are Highly Recommended
booked The Midlands String Quartet for their Wedding November 2022

“We had and amazing string trio playing at our wedding last November. Not only did all of our guests comment on how beautiful it was to have strings playing, everyone commented on how varied the music was. It was also lovely for one of the trio to come and find us when we was having photos as we hadn’t had chance to come and listen. They played our favourite piece that we asked for and we just stood and danced in the middle surrounded by our friends and family. It felt like a first dance rehearsal and one of my fondest memories of our day. Thankyou so much. We would highly recommend.”

Our guests were blown away with their music!

booked The Midlands String Quartet for their Wedding June 2022

“The Midlands String Quartet played at our wedding on 4th June 2022 for our guests arrival, ceremony and reception. They were absolutely fantastic, extremely professional and well organised. Our guests were blown away with their music, we’ve had so many positive comments about the performance. The atmosphere on the day would not have been the same without this group. Thank you so much ladies.”

Now we are desperate to see them again!

booked The Midlands String Quartet for their Wedding

“We are so pleased we chose this quartet to play at our wedding. They are super talented and play so beautifully. They played a super set from the ceremony through to the drinks reception and the wedding breakfast (such stamina! and in different locations too!) with a mix of our favourite classical and pop pieces. All I wanted to do during the wedding breakfast was just sit quietly and listen to them!! Communication with Sarah was really easy and she was so accommodating in rearranging the booking and making changes due to covid. And as a special request, they were able to play our absolute favourite piece of classical music that wasn’t on their repertoire but we really wanted for the ceremony, and Sarah arranged that for us no problem. It was so special, thank you. Now we are desperate to see them again!”

The music was beautiful and really added to the atmosphere.
