  • Personal Message from the Manager
    Name of Wedding Contact: Cheryl
    You will hear all the usual sales pitches from other string groups so I don't want to bore you with more of the same! We really do love weddings and each and every couple is individually special to us! We guide each of our couples every step of the way as they choose their musical scenery for their big day! My advice to couples is to remember that the cheapest quote may not provide you with the best service! When it comes to your wedding day why take the risk? Call me!!
