“Your music was a sheer delight to listen to and the atmosphere you created made the wedding even more spectacular. Thank you again for helping to make our Wedding perfect”
Our String Quartet is a perfect choice if you would prefer mainly classical traditional pieces, whilst still offering lighter songs in a classical style.
The String Quartet can also perform music instrumental covers from several genres, in a classical style, which provides a lovely harmonious atmosphere.
If you prefer to hear mainly modern songs played on strings, why not look at our best selling String Trio or String Quintet as an elegant and unique alternative to the String Quartet.
Here is an example of how the String Quartet can perform a variety of musical styles for a wedding ceremony.
You can also have Blue Topaz String Quartet to play at your drinks reception, wedding breakfast or even for your first dance! We recommend the lighter classics for the drinks reception and wedding breakfast, and a romantic slow song for your first dance.
Having pre ceremony music creates a lovely calm and welcoming atmosphere for your guests, whilst they wait for the ceremony to begin.

Our String Quartet has two violins, viola and cello. We find that this combination of instruments is more suited to playing classical repertoire such as Handel, Bach, Mozart and Schubert.
Our String Trio is a unique line up of two violins and double bass. We have found that by including a double bass in our trio, we can add an extra vitality to the pop and jazz pieces when the bass player taps and plucks the strings.
Absolutely not! Our String Quartet appeals to all age ranges. We have played for Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs, at hundreds of weddings & anniversary parties for couples of all ages, for corporate events spanning young professionals to CEOs, plus many a big birthday to the age of ninety!
