Frequently asked questions
What kind of music do you specialise in?
As professional musicians we're equally comfortable playing music of all styles from classical to pop.
How far do you travel?
We are based in Berkshire but cover all adjoining counties - most of our bookings are in Berkshire, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Avon, London (West & Central), Surrey & West Sussex.
What do your prices start from?
Our prices start at £300 for a duo playing at the ceremony. We have a number of packages depending on whether music is required for the ceremony alone or ceremony and drinks reception/wedding breakfast and whether our clients opt for a duo, trio, or quartet.
Do you take requests on the day?
We have a huge repertoire and if we have the sheet music with us we're happy to take requests on the day.
Will you learn a specific song for our wedding?
We can often commission a string arrangement of your special song to play just for you.
Can you play in a wedding venue with sound restrictions?
We are purely acoustic so are not subject to sound restrictions.
How long will it take you to set up?
We always arrive about 45 minutes before we are scheduled to play in order to liaise with the venue staff and registrar/celebrant so that everything runs smoothly.
