"We had Artisan Strings playing during our wedding drinks reception - they sounded fantastic and our guests loved their modern pieces as well as the classical repertoire. They gave a beautiful performance and were extremely professional especially when having to move due to a rain shower."

"We hired Artisan Strings to play at our wedding ceremony in September and I have to say that they were absolutely fantastic. They played beautifully and I would highly recommend them to anyone considering a string quartet for their event, whatever it may be. I feel I must point out that when our vicar thanked them near the end, all of our guests applauded them, something I have never seen at a wedding! Thank you Artisan for making our day that extra bit special."
