Thank you for helping to make my sisters wedding such a memorable occasion. Your choice of music for both the church and the reception were ideal and enjoyed by all.

What does the fee include? The fee is from starting time to finishing time and covers any moves or changes of venue.

Will you be able to help me choose the music? Yes, we would discuss your requirements in as much detail as you like. If you want to leave it up to us, that is fine too.

How much do you play during the ceremony? We play while guests arrive for about 20 minutes, then for the bride's entrance, for the signing when we usually like to have 2 pieces ready. Then for the exit of the bride and groom.

Do you play for hymns? Yes we do, as a quartet and also as a trio.

Do you need electricity? We bring our own lights for our stands in case it is a bit dim so a plug somewhere nearby is useful.

What else do you need us to supply? A chair for each player which is flattish with no arms.

Do we have to supply refreshments? We do like a coffee on arrival as we tend to be there early to be on the safe side. If you want to provide sandwiches or a hot meal, it is up to you. Just let us know either way so we can provide our own if necessary. If you can make sure a soft drink is available without charge, that is appreciated.

What do the musicians wear? Usually either smart black, or black and white jackets. Sometimes the ladies wear summer dresses if asked.

Do you play special requests? Yes, we try to as long as the music is available. If it is not and it has to be arranged, there is a small charge.

Do you play pop songs as well as classical? Yes, we have a very broad range of music to suit most tastes.

Have you any stories to tell of previous weddings? Yes, ask for our wedding experiences sheet.
