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.
Booked at extremely short notice, yet we really couldn't have asked for anything more from Marilla. Friendly and professional, they provided a wonderful backdrop to our wedding breakfast without being in any way obtrusive, and we had many comments about how great they were from guests, and also from members of staff at our venue! We were able to make requests in advance, and all were played brilliantly. No fuss, no trouble, just great music and friendly faces - a definite thumbs up from my new husband and I - thank you!
We were delighted with the quartet. We really enjoyed selecting tunes from the play list and were impressed by the extensive and varied repertoire. The musicians were friendly, good humored and professional and it was easy to stay in contact via email to discuss our requirements. The quartet really enhanced out wedding celebration by creating a charming and relaxed atmosphere. We had many comments from our guests about how much they had enjoyed the music. It was very helpful to be able to listen to samples on the website.
The Marilla String Quartet were a wonderful addition to our wedding day. From start to finish their communication, performance and professionalism were second to none. I asked for a variety of music to be played during our arrival drinks and at the start of dinner, and we were not disappointed by what was played.
I would highly recommend this string quartet; an excellent group.
The Marilla String Quartet provided wonderful music, which really set the atmosphere at our champagne reception and wedding breakfast. They were very helpful in establishing a playlist and even offered to match our wedding colours! All our guests commented on how fantastic the music was, everybody was suitably impressed! I would certainly recommend them.
The Marilla String Quartet provided the perfect music for our wedding. They were incredibly flexible and easy to work with. We had music from them in the church before, during and after the ceremony and hearing Pachelbel's Canon start up for my father and I to walk in to just made my heart soar, and I shall always remember hearing Ave Maria as we signed the register and looked at all our guests. They also provided music for the drinks reception at Norhtmoor Farm and created a wonderful atmosphere. We have since had many comments from guests praising the string quartet and if ever I had another party I would ask them to play again. I highly recommend them and would give them more than 5 stars if I could.
The Marilla String Quartet were absolutely amazing and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking to add elegance and class to their wedding. They played throughout the day including the ceremony and wedding breakfast. We had specific music in mind for our ceremony and they were happy to locate and adapt the arrangements for strings. They're playing created a beautiful atmosphere and they were instrumental in making our special day even more so.
The Marilla String Quartet were absolutely professional, helpful and friendly throughout the entire booking and scheduling process. Their website, which was how we found them, was incredibly helpful, including several .mp3 clips of pieces they had played. When I arrived at the chapel to hear them playing through the prelude music we had agreed upon, I knew that I had got well beyond the value of every pence I paid!<br /> <br /> We kept contact via one member of the group during all the planning, and she was able to offer friendly and competent (and easy to understand!) advice about all the music they could play while absolutely respecting my own preferences about which piece we would use. The group was wonderfully flexible to my requests for the music and has clearly been in the wedding business long enough to know how to deal with control-freak brides! :-)<br /> <br /> All of our guests were enchanted with Marilla and their lovely music. They created the perfect atmosphere for our special day, and I especially love that they were able to play for me the lesser known pieces I requested as well - the arrangements were perfect.<br /> <br /> I can wholeheartedly endorse the Marilla String Quartet for anyone looking to add that little extra something to their wedding or reception. Speaking as a fellow musician, they're delightfully professional, very reasonably priced, and the calibre of their musicianship is the absolute highest. They earned every one of my five stars!
The Marilla String Quartet played beautifully at our wedding, both during the ceremony and afterwards at the reception. They were very reliable, friendly, flexible and and making the booking arrangements was very straightforward. Their repertoire is wide and, with their help, we were able to create different atmospheres for the ceremony and the reception. I would be happy to recommend them.
Marilla String Quartet played an important role in making our wedding day so wonderful. I was impressed by them in all aspects, including cost. In particular, their friendly and efficient communication leading up to the event gave me complete confidence in them, which was completely justified on the day.
