Maestoso Strings were brilliant on our wedding day at The Slaughters Manor House in the Cotswolds! Valtie and the girls put together a great set for our pre-ceremony, ceremony and drinks reception music and our wedding party were all commenting on what a talented quartet they are. I loved the mix of TV and pop/rock songs which added a great modern twist to the day. Valtie was so friendly and made the organisation hassle-free so that we had nothing to worry about on the day. Couldn't recommend Maestoso Strings enough!

Maestoso Strings are fantastic, they arrived at the Wedding Venue and set up their equipment without us even knowing that they had arrived. They played during our Wedding Ceremony and in a small private chapel sounded great. They are amazing musicians, exceptionally professional and lovely well presented young women, I can not recommend them with any higher regard and all of our guests commented on how outstanding they were, stop browsing other artists and book this act immediately, you will not be disappointed.
