"Unfortunately we didn’t manage to speak to the ladies on Saturday, but we just wanted to say a big thank you for being there and playing really beautiful music. It really made the ceremony and the drinks reception."
"Hi Ines, We hope you had a good weekend. We wanted to get in touch to thank the band for such an amazing performance at our wedding on Friday. So many people came up to us to say how impressive the string music was. Our only regret is that we didn’t get to thank you on the day! However, we are truly grateful for your contribution to such a memorable day for us. Wishing you all the best in the future, Richard and Rebecca."
"Happy Monday Ines, Thank you so much for your help in the past few weeks. You’ve been an absolute dream to work with! The 13th July night was a great success and I’m in love with the quartet! They performed beautifully and we can’t thank them enough for helping us create a memorable experience for our guests. We’ve got very positive feedback from the event attendees and I’m grateful for all of your help and I’m in awe of all of your talent – absolute stars of the show! Best wishes, Linh."
"Aphrodite Strings played during our ceremony and our drinks reception - they helped to make our day even more special and one we will never forget! We had so many comments throughout the day and have had so many since on how great they were. The song selection was perfect and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough. The booking was easy and once in contact they were so helpful and answered all our questions quickly. We couldn’t have asked for a better quartet to play at our wedding! Amazing."
"Aphrodite's group played at our wedding. They were brilliant! Such talented and nice girls. They even arranged a piece I had written and played it for our first dance, it made it even more special."
