"From the very beginning of wedding planning, I knew I wanted something classic and natural for our wedding music. I came across Fix the Music, and I was quickly responded to by one of their team, Ed, who suggested The Usher Quartet for our wedding ceremony, as they were within my price range, and had brilliant reviews and Repertoire. Martin from The Usher Quartet was very thorough in asking what I expected from them, and what music choices I had in mind. I had bad anxiety in the week leading up to my wedding, and was very nervous about what the quartet would sound like, as we only had a small church for our ceremony. But as soon as I arrived at the church on our wedding day, arm in arm with my dad, and bridesmaids in front of me, I heard the beautiful strings playing inside, and my nerves instantly disappeared. The song I walked into was played at just the right pace and was so emotional that it made me cry. After the ceremony, all of our guests said how much they enjoyed the Quartet and how beautiful it sounded.So my new Husband and I would like to say a massive thank you to Martin Usher, and The Usher Quartet for being part of our wonderful day. And to Fix the Music for all suggestions and advice on the lead up to our big day! Kind Regards, Mrs Louise Butterfield"
