I would just like to say a massive thank you, for playing at our wedding 22/7/16. We wanted something a little bit different for our wedding, for our guests to enjoy whilst relaxing at our venue. After finding The Velvet String Quartet on Facebook and listening to their fantastic and professional recordings on their website, I got the thumbs up from my very musical brother, and booked them.I was utterly thrilled with their professional service and attention to detail with regards to choosing songs for before, during and after the ceremony. Their repertoire is extensive and current whilst also including some fantastic classical options. There was also the option to select a piece of music that wasn't on the repertoire list. This came at a very small additional cost but was one of the best decisions we made for the day. We had an acoustic version of "Time After Time" put together for the Bridal Party entrance and it was truly stunning. All of our guests commented on how beautifully the music had been arranged. If you ever record this piece please let us know so we can purchase a copy. Following the ceremony you kept our guests entertained and helped to contribute to a fantastic atmosphere. I can't thank you enough. Please do not have any hesitations in booking this fabulous String Quartet, they are truly talented young musicians.Laura and Jake

Lizzie and I would like to thank you for the amazing performance on our wedding day in November at Rudby Hall. We had so many comments to say how perfect the addition a string quartet was while people arrived and then after the ceremony and we completely agree with them. With a mixture of classical songs and modern covers it really was a great fit for our special day. The additional songs we requested were also perfectly executed and we will remember them whenever we think back to the day. We both highly recommend The Velvet String Quartet to make a wedding that bit more memorable.Andrew and Lizzie

Phil - I would just like to again pass on our appreciation for playing at our wedding. It was an unbelievable day which was topped off by your amazing & beautiful performance. We were blown away when we first heard you guys and the same can be said of the reaction from our guests. I can't wait to hear it back! If you want to add that WOW!! factor to your special day The Velvet String Quartet are a must. Sarah - We'd both like to thank you all for your impressive performance on Friday, you really were the highlight of the day with so many guests complimenting you. It was fantastic to hear you while all the guests were outside mingling in the sun, the day would not have been the same without you, you had such a big impact in making our day perfect and we really can't thank you enough.Sarah and Phil

I would just like to say a huge thank you, for making our wedding day so special. Julia Bayman had always dreamed of having a string quartet at her wedding and you made that dream a reality. Having you there to play the entrance and exit music added the magic we were looking for at the already fabulous Rivington Hall Barn. Before and after the ceremony, you kept our guests wonderfully entertained. All of our guests commented on how beautifully you played and were blown away with the excellent repetoire. If you find this post and are considering using a string quartet for your special day then please do not have any hesitations in booking this fabulous String Quartet, they are wonderful!Danny and Julia
