Thank you so much to Marilla Strings for making our wedding day so wonderful! The whole process from booking to music selection to the playing on the day was fantastic. Jacqui really helped us to plan our ceremony pieces perfectly and we were totally confident in them playing a variety of different pieces for our drinks reception. Our guests thought the strings were a lovely touch to the day and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for a wedding or special occasion. Thanks again - Mr & Mrs Harris
My wife and I used Jacqui and her colleagues at Marilla String Quartet for our wedding on 7th June and were not disappointed.
They arrived on time, set up with no fuss, and got on with entertaining our guests. Even when the start of our ceremony was slightly delayed they continued to play appropriate music and filled until my wife arrived.
They were always courteous when speaking over email and had a good back catalogue to choose from.
Thanks so much to the Marilla String Quartet for providing fantastic music for our wedding. Many of our guests commented on how great they were and we couldn't have asked for better!
When we first approached the group, Chris was really helpful and professional in choosing our music for the ceremony and the drinks reception afterwards. We asked the group to compose a song that was not on their playlist and they did so brilliantly. Keeping in touch over email was easy and Chris responded quickly to any queries or changes we wanted to make.
I would highly recommend Marilla String Quartet for your wedding!
Thank you for all your hard work that helped make our wedding such an amazing day. From start to finish you were a pleasure to work with - very professional great service. Thank you for learning new pieces just for us. Your performance at the arrivals and in the service was fantastic and created a lovely atmosphere. We would recommend you to anyone wanting a flawless performance and great value for money. Thanks again.
Being the 'mother of the bride' and my daughter's designated 'wedding planner'I was charged with finding a string quartet which would make her dreams come true. The Marilla String Quartet did just that. They set the scene for what turned out to be the most wonderful wedding. All the guests commented on how beautifully they played. For my part, Marisa was the calmest and most professional person I came in contact with over the 18 months it took to organise the 'Big Day' As far as Marisa was concerned everything was 'do-able' and no trouble at all. I cannot overstate the poignancy and emotions the quartet instigated in the bride and Groom and all the guests. I would recommend them to everyone.
Marilla String Quartet were extremely easy to work with in the lead up to our wedding and with all thneother arrangements to make it was a pleasure to work with such a friendly and professional group. Their repertoire is extensive and they were extremely helpful in the music selection. As an added bonus, they even asked what the colour scheme was so that they could coordinate accordingly which we thought was extremely considerate and thoughtful. On the day we had many compliments on the quartet and they played beautifully for us. The 4 ladies were so friendly and they really put the icing on the cake in making our day so special. We would highly recommend them for any occasion.
I just had a perfect wedding and a large part of the success came from the beautiful music played by Marilla String Trio! I can't recommend them highly enough either! Marisa was so kind and professional. It was such a pleasant experience from the first day I contacted her to discuss the music to be played at my wedding until we heard the last note of the music at my wedding. Marisa gave us great suggestions and arranged the procedure just as what we requested. And, their music came out so beautiful and it perfectly fitted into my wedding ceremony and the dinner afterwards. It was truly wonderful and all our guests were asking where I found Marisa's trio! I was obviously lucky to have found them. What was most amazing was that Marisa and her group practiced two pieces of Chinese music as I requested and magically played the music, which are usually played with traditional Chinese musical instruments, with violin and cello! I was so happy and grateful to hear the Chinese pieces at my wedding. If you are looking for a music group to play beautiful and elegant music for your event, Marilla is THE best!
All our guests commented on how wonderful the quartet was. We were very specific about the requests that we wanted - what kind of music we wanted played when, the order ... we just wanted it the way we wanted it! The quartet were very patient with us in the run up to the wedding - giving lots of assurances and never once making us feel like control freaks!
On the day, the music set the mood and tone throughout - and we were thrilled to bits. Professional at all times - I can't recommend them highly enough.
We were extremly impressed with Marilla, they were everything we had hoped for and more for our wedding day. In the lead up to the wedding the communication and advice was excellent.They helped me decide on the style of music I wanted and which piece suited particular parts of the day. I asked for a special piece of piano music to be re written for strings which for a small price they did and made a beautiful present for my dad...They were also happy to include any particular pieces of music I wanted to include.Thakfully the weather held out and Marilla played outside during our drinks reception and through the wedding breakfast creating a relaxed and happy atmposphere ( I certainly caught myself humming along to some of the movie theme tunes at one point!)We have had so many compliments about the day and so many people commented on the music and how beautiful it was. Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special.
