My husband Darren and I got married at Fawsley Hall, Daventry last month and the Ariella Strings trio played for us during our wedding ceremony and drinks reception. From the moment that we first contacted them (nearly two years ago) regarding their availability for our October 2019 wedding date they were a pleasure to deal with and extremely professional suppliers in every respect. The business and contractual side of things was handled very efficiently with clear paperwork and prompt responses to emails at all times.
A few weeks before the wedding we had a very enjoyable meeting with John to go through the running order for our ceremony, and to finalise our music choices for both the ceremony and drinks reception. We were never in any doubt about our choice of supplier and knew that Ariella Strings would play beautifully and greatly enhance the atmosphere of our special day both for ourselves and our guests.
On the day itself Ariella Strings were a huge asset. Due to an unexpected delay to our pre-ceremony meeting with the Registrars, our ceremony was late starting. During this time Ariella continued to play for our guests whilst they waited in the ceremony room. In addition, Cheryl was an absolute godsend by managing to capture photographs for us of all the little details of the day that would otherwise have been missed, for which I am extremely grateful.
In summary, Ariella Strings are wonderful musicians, highly professional suppliers in every sense and lovely people to deal with. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for wonderful musical entertainment for their wedding or special event.
From first contact to choosing the songs and on the day it has all been fantastic. We first heard them at an open evening and fell in love. They helped and supported us with the type of music and picking all the choices. On the day they were set up in loads of times and played amazing. An added touch of them taking a few pictures and sending them to us was a great bonus. Would recommend highly especially if you are not sure what type of music you want.
Cheryl is lovely! We haven't yet met, but her fab personality shines through on emails and she's been very willing to help however they can - even offering to learn a new piece of music we specifically requested for the entrance. A great supplier we are enjoying working with :-) we just can't wait to hear them play live on our big day!
Cheryl, John and the team have been fab from the first initial contact right through to our big day. We requested a song that John wrote the score for and then we communicated back and forth until I was happy with the tempo to walk down the aisle to. When it came to the day it was absolutely perfect. They really made our day that bit extra special and our guests commented on how great they were and how they knew every song played. We also chose the Jukebox option which is a fun way for guests to interact during the drinks reception. A huge thank you to Ariella Strings for making our day even more special.
Ariella Strings is an exceptional group of professional musicians highly trained and with a wonder full approach to proving a unique service for your Wedding or party. We first met Cheryl and john at a Wedding Fair and Plum Park House in early 2017.
They are both very approachable kind and friendly people. I had written a piece of music for our Wedding Ceremony and as a gift to my partner and I knew that John and Cheryl where happy to undertake composition work and translate my recordings into a unique string piece that Ariella Strings could perform. Without any compromise John created from my rough work a masterpiece that set the whole tone and atmosphere or our Wedding. Cheryl kept me up to date with emails and information and John created the music, a perfect partnership. Ariella strings performed for two hours during the ceremony and for drinks after, there reportoire never repeating and performed with the same magic,care and humour throughout. They really held the whole moment together and we wouldn't of wanted any other musicians there. I can only rave about and recommend Ariella Strings (john and Cheryl). They are consummate professionals dedicated entirely to your musical Wedding wishes. There special presence at our Wedding made it wonderful and gave it an unparallelled level of quality. For what they bring to your Special Day and moment, they are fantastic value and an essential product. One of the things your guests will remember and comment on afterwards was wonderful strings and atmosphere they gave to the moment. Ariella Strings holds a special place in our hearts for what they brought to our Wedding day and the assistance given in creating my unique piece of music, our heartfelt thanks to John and Cheryl always.
