“Beautiful music, professionally presented.”

booked Etive Quartet for their Wedding in Perth and Kinross on 30th March 2019

Etive Quartet played beautifully at my daughter's wedding with many guests commenting that it was the perfect music for the setting. The quartet arrived on time and set up. They moved from the outside ceremony to the indoors drinks reception with no fuss. They were friendly and professional throughout and I would happily recommend them.

Just a quick email to extend our thanks for Saturday. You sounded amazing. Gutted that Roz and I didn’t make it back in time to the hotel before you left – the photographer took longer than we planned! Everyone has told us that you were brilliant back at the Park Hotel (and a few have raved about the Frozen song!!) I hope to hear you guys again soon – I reckon some of the engaged couples will be trying to secure your services in the future!

This is the first opportunity I have had to properly say thank you for such a wonderful performance at our wedding. You all played beautifully. Everyone commented on your talent and the repertoire you performed. Thank you for taking the time to understand the style of wedding we planned, for listening to our preferences, and for doing a truly moving rendition of Flames by Vast as requested. The fact that you learnt the song to accommodate us shows the calibre of group that you are. It was very much appreciated and I will be recommending you to anyone with string needs. Thanks again to you all!

Just wanted to say thank you sooooo much for playing on our wedding 15-11-14. I can’t wait to hear the DVD as I didn’t take it all in on the day. Apologies we didn’t get a chance to speak to you or thank you in person. So many people commented on how fabulous you were. We are just back from our honeymoon in Australia and you inspired us to see the Australia piano quartet which was lovely so thank you. Thanks for being part of our day and playing our songs too. Keep up the great work.

“I just wanted to thank you so very much for your marvellous playing during dinner at our wedding at the lodge on saturday. We just all thought you were fantastic and we have had such great feedback. Alice also said she thought it was just brilliant to have you playing during dinner. I’m only sorry I was out of the room when you finished up and started packing up or I would have thanked you all in person. Your choices were great and really helped contribute to the atmosphere at dinner, and it was particularly great to see the youngest members of our party so excited by it all…if anyone gets me a picture of the little ones dancing in front of you all I will forward it on to you! Thanks again so much for helping to make our day so special.”

“Your string quartet just made it the perfect wedding for me, it was everything I had imagined and I would definitely recommend you to everyone. I have a few friends getting married in the future and I have already passed on your name to them. I just wish I had been a guest so I could have listened to you longer, hopefully I will get a chance to in the future.”

“We just wanted to say a massive thank you to the 3 of you who played at our wedding on the 27th July at House For An Art Lover. All our guests commented on how lovely the music was, some of them had never attended a wedding with strings before so that was really nice for them. We also want to thank you for arranging the piece of music by Yiruma for my walk down the aisle. We’d only ever heard it on a piano before so wasn’t sure how it would sound but as I stood waiting to come in I could hear it and you guys sounded so beautiful I was thrilled with it. My husband loved it too. That piece of music made that part of the wedding very magical for us so once again thank you. You are all so talented and we will definitely be recommending you in the future!”

“Just to say a massive thank you from my husband and I for your performance at our wedding on Saturday. It was so lovely to hear you playing during our service. So many of our guests told us how they had loved listening to you during our drinks reception too. I apologise I didn’t get the chance to thank you in person! Our photographer had to whisk us away during that brief dry spell for some photographs in front of the loch. In any case, it has been a pleasure dealing with you and I wish you all the best in the future.”

“It is hard to find strong enough words to say a big enough thank you. The programme was entirely appropriate and exquisitely played. You were all so talented, so enthusiastic and so friendly to the family and friends too. We were very grateful you came so far in such rotten weather and arrived so cheerful and ready to give everyone such a great experience. My mum still talks of you often (weekly to be precise) and says her 80th birthday was the best day of her life. We are all forever thankful and will remember you with great affection. Wishing you every success and happiness in the future.

“We had the great good fortune to have this highly talented string quartet playing for us at our wedding ceremony and ensuing reception. What a discovery this gifted group of musicians proved to be. Long after the reception was over many of our guests, who had all thoroughly enjoyed the group’s playing throughout the course of the afternoon and evening, were still enthusing over their performance. These musicians contributed enormously to our reception and greatly enhanced our guests enjoyment of the occasion. The quartets repertoire is extensive and embraces a variety of styles. They tell you this in the helpful information leaflets which they are happy to provide you with prior to securing any engagement. What they won’t tell you is just how good they really are. Well we are happy to do so. Having been in the privileged position of listening to their playing throughout the course of an entire afternoon into early evening we are happy to confirm just how versatile their musicians in fact are. Their playing can switch effortlessly from classical pieces to pop, from jazz to musicals, and is played to a consistently high standard throughout. We should also make clear that prior to the booking the group members could not have been more helpful. They liaised closely with us and were most happy to give advice and recommendations on suitable pieces. This is found to be extremely helpful during our wedding preparations. The overall service which the Erskine Quartet provides is of an extremely high standard. To those considering engaging their services we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them. You really could not do better!”
