I adore string quartets, so it was no surprise that I wanted to feature one in my wedding plans somehow.
During my research at the time, I really liked the sound (pun intended) of Highly Strung.
They’ve been performing at weddings and corporate events for over 10 years and cover the midlands. The fact that they have previously performed at our wedding venue was also a draw. Unfortunately, finances did not permit having a string quartet perfume.
Instead, I was introduced to the Vitamin String Quartet and loved their arrangements of some of our favourite songs. They have an extensive catalogue of cover songs/albums.
We had several cds of their covers playing as our guests arrived and also during the wedding breakfast. I was really pleased with the ambiance they lent to our already stunning wedding venue.
For the gothier and hardcore, I cannot recommend highly enough, the music of Apocalyptica. They’re a Finnish cello rock band, famous for their epic covers of Metallica hits. They’re own stuff is pretty awesome too. We played their version of Nothing Else Matters shortly before the wedding ceremony.
If you’re interested in having a string quartet perform at your wedding, you can find quartets in your area at Find a String Quartet.
