String Quartet Solutions
String Quartet Solutions can provide a string quartet, trio or duo, playing beautiful music to accompany your wedding ceremony and/or reception. With over 20 hours of music in our repertoire we have a large and varied selection of styles from classical to pop/rock.
Carla Wyburn is a skilled violinist and musical arranger. She is happy to create a unique programme of music for your wedding and accommodate any special requests you may have. Carla is also bilingual English/Portuguese so there are no language barriers.
We believe that we are not just professional in our standard of playing but also in our approach. Our aim is to meet your needs. We believe it is vital to provide a reliable and friendly service and to be honest and open with you at all times. We are also available for consultation and are very happy to give advice concerning our role on your special day.
SQS has a wealth of experience in playing at weddings with various different protocols.
As a guide, our standard performing time is 3 hours, which in our experience covers the ceremony and reception drinks. However we can be hired for longer periods or for shorter lengths of time if all you would like is music for a specific part of the proceedings. Few ensembles offer such flexibility of hire.
Civil Ceremonies and Church Weddings It is always relaxing for your guests to listen to some music before the bridal entrance. We find that 15 minutes of music whilst guests are entering the ceremony room or church creates a lovely atmosphere.
Please see our repertoire lists to help you choose pieces for the Bridal Entrance, Signing of the Register and the Departure of the bride and groom.
Photographs and Reception Drinks The quartet is very portable and is able to change location with ease. We are used to moving from one room to another and are able to relocate to where the wedding reception drinks are being served and/or the photographs are being taken.
We are always open to negotiation. Every event is different and we pride ourselves on being able to cater for all requirements and circumstances, and on providing that ‘personal’ touch.
Once you have contacted us, we will send you a quote. In order to reserve us, you will need to pay a deposit of Euros 100€. We will then draw up the contract together either in person, by email or by Skype. Then we look forward to meeting you on your big day!
