The Carousel String Quartet is the perfect choice to add a touch of sophistication to your wedding day.  We can create the perfect musical accompaniment for your civil ceremony or church wedding, entertain your guests during drinks and canapés and provide an elegant background to your wedding breakfast.

From the moment your guests arrive, our experienced quartet will help to create the perfect atmosphere, allowing you to relax and enjoy your special day.  Our friendly and versatile musicians will be delighted to play for any combination of your ceremony, drinks reception, and wedding breakfast, including moving from the church to your reception venue.

We understand that choosing music for your wedding can seem a daunting task.  Sarah will be very happy to advise you on suitable pieces and we have prepared a sample programme below, showing some of the most popular choices for inclusion in a wedding ceremony.

Many couples prefer to keep to traditional choices of music for their ceremony, whilst others choose more contemporary pieces which perhaps hold particular meaning for them, or decide on a combination of the two.  Whatever your choice, the Carousel String Quartet offers a wide repertoire, allowing you the flexibility to create a personal programme of music for your ceremony.  If you prefer, let us recommend a selection of music for you.

After your ceremony, it’s time to enjoy mingling with your friends and family to a sparkling backdrop of popular classics and light music, including pop and jazz pieces.  Our vast repertoire ranges from Purcell, Bach and Vivaldi, to Scott Joplin, Cole Porter and The Beatles and is the perfect complement to your celebrations.

Please contact us with any queries, however small.  We take great pride in the personal service we offer to our clients.
