These are such a fun group of people to have playing on your wedding day. There are loads of songs to choose from. We chose a lot of film music and a couple to catch people out like YMCA! All our guests enjoyed listening and guessing the songs as they played. Thank you Ariella Strings!
Dear John and Cheryl We just wanted to email and say thank you so much for your amazing work at our wedding. The procession songs were absolutely perfect, the accompaniment during the ceremony was beautiful and we are looking back with such fond memories. For Amy, hearing you play her favourite song had an incredibly strong reaction as it meant she was getting married to the love of her life, a feeling she will always remember. Our guests had a fabulous time at the reception listening to you play and we loved the private rendition you gave us of the Harry Potter theme. We really appreciated all your hard work on the day but also in the build up in preparing the songs. Thank you both for the lovely gift of the music score that you composed of our favourite songs. We cant wait to put them up at home and show them off. Having you be a part of our wedding was really special and we hope you enjoyed yourselves.
We had Ariella Strings trio to play at our wedding in June 2018. From the first initial contact through to the big day we found Cheryl and John's customer service fantastic.
I chose to have a slowed down version of Dusty Springfield's " I only want to be with you" to walk down the aisle to and John wrote the score and played back he music to me over the phone until I was happy with the tempo.
The music was beautiful on the day. The choice of songs to pick from for the ceremony and drinks reception were great! We chose the jukebox option too as this was a fun way for our guests to interact with Ariella Strings. Thank you all so much for making our wedding day even more special!
Ariella Strings provided music for most of our wedding day, including during the ceremony and drinks afterwards. They worked with myself and my husband leading up to the wedding to ensure we had what we wanted music wise. The choice was amazing and they played a great mix of classical and modern on the day. Thank you for providing a great soundtrack to our special day!
Cheryl and John from Ariella Strings were the loveliest people to deal with during our wedding planning process. Right from our first inquiry they were super helpful and friendly - nothing was too much trouble at all! They kept in contact with us a lot, even though we had booked them way in advance of our wedding date, and gave us so much choice when it came to music! On the day, they were the first suppliers I came across when I got to our wedding venue - and they were just so lovely to talk to and made me feel really special. They played just before the service, whilst I walked down the aisle, during the signing of the register, our exit and throughout the drinks reception. They made our service just magical, and they are all amazingly talented musicians! All our guests commented on how wonderful they sounded, and how they added to the lovely atmosphere. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to any bride and groom to be! Thank you so much for making our day super special!!
Cheryl and John were regularly in touch to discuss our wishes and requirements. They were prompt in responding and very efficient. We had the string duo for our wedding service and canapé reception. There was a wide choice of music to choose from. We got to pick all the songs that we wanted. They are exceptionally talented musicians and all the guests at our wedding commented at how wonderful they were. Really made our day special.
Amazing! I'm so glad we booked for our wedding! Communication throughout the whole process was just great! Cheryl was great with answering my questions and listening to me waffle on about being pregnant! She really was interested in my story! John came to discuss music chooses with us and he was so down to earth and had a wealth of knowledge! Everyone has commented on how incredible the music was and what an atmosphere it created! My only regret is not booking for longer! Thank U so so much for making our wedding day extremely special to us xxx
Just to say a huge THANK YOU for performing at our wedding at The Sculpture Gallery on 8/8/18. You really did contribute to an incredible atmosphere and played phenomenally well. We had so many positive comments. I am sorry we didn't really have much opportunity to say thank you on the day as it all went so very fast. We will certainly not hesitate to recommend you to our friends.
Thank you to Ariella Strings for playing at our wedding at Luton Hoo. They worked closely with us to play the perfect music before and during our ceremony. The jukebox list meant they had lots of fun interacting with our guests during the drinks reception. There was a great atmosphere and we even think their playing encouraged the sun to come out! Really lovely people and we are so happy they were part of our day!
