"We hired The Paragon String Quartet for our wedding in February and they were wonderful! Communication in the run up to the date was quick and easy, and the repertoire list was extensive. On the day, the quartet played beautifully across the afternoon and were able to accommodate all of our requests, including one song that wasn't in their repertoire list. We loved the selection, including the specific ones we chose. We loved having them for our day and highly recommend them."

"The Paragon String Quartet were absolutely fantastic! They played beautiful music during our dinner and also accommodated all our requests that we made. Even though some were rather last minute. We would love to have them back again!"

"Thank you for playing so beautifully at our wedding. Hearing you play as I walked down the aisle was very special and just what I had dreamed of. In addition, thank you for entertaining our guests during our champagne reception. Also, your no-fuss attitude in terms of the arrangements made organising everything much easier!"
