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! [Read less]
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. [Read less]
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. [Read less]
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. [Read less]
