Manchester Strings were fantastic. They were very professional and created the most perfect atmosphere for our daughters wedding, sounding amazing. My daughter and son-in-law are really into movies and the music associated with them and thus we choose lots of movie tracks which kept our guests guessing the movie as they played! They helped create a most memorable day which we will be talking about for many months.

Warble and the band themselves were very quick to respond to any questions I had and the booking process was very smooth. The band were amazing, I just wish I had more time to speak to them and actually consciously listen to them! Thank you!

Manchester Strings were one of the highlights of the day at our wedding. They were professional, passionate and added an elegant element to our big day! We really can't thank them and Warble enough!! Let's face it how can you have a 'Game of Thrones' themed wedding without the theme tune being played live!! Can't recommend highly enough! Thank you!! Kylie & Elric Cadwallader

The Manchester strings entertained our guests on arrival at the venue and sounded brilliant. They also learnt an extra song for us for a small fee. Thankyou for making our day extra special.

The Manchester Strings were brilliant. They were professional from the outset. They were open to any ideas we had and more than happy to guide us as needed. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful start to our big day, so many guests complemented them. Thank you so much you guys, I will never forget walking down the aisle to your music.

The quartet were very polite and approachable. The music was very good and appropriate for the occasion. Communication throughout was also great.
