A string quartet for your wedding: special music for your special day
Whether it’s beautiful music for the entrance of the bride, something special during the signing of the register or a relaxed party feel for a drinks reception, a string quartet can add such atmosphere to your wedding.

The Mantuan Quartet is very experienced in providing music for weddings and can provide beautiful, sensitively chosen music to complement any part of your ceremony or reception. We can provide music for civil or church ceremonies (including hymns) and can move with you to your reception venue if required.

The quartet can provide music for any part of your wedding day, including:
Some answers to your questions....

What music will you play?

Most couples like to select their own choices for music during the ceremony (entrance, signing of the register and exit). The quartet is happy to consult with you to select the perfect pieces for these moments if you would like help choosing - music can be selected from the extensive repertoire list, or given sufficient notice, we can source or arrange a request for you if it’s not in our repertoire already.

For the other parts of your day, if you have a particular feel in mind or any requests for music at these times, please do let us know when choosing your music. More usually, the quartet will select music from their repertoire appropriate to the moment in the proceedings - perhaps well-known classical pieces prior to the ceremony and pop and lighter music for the drinks reception.

What will you require?

Can you play outside?

The quartet is happy to play outside, but this is very much weather dependent – in fine weather, we just need a shady spot (or cover in the form of a gazebo) to protect the instruments from direct sun. The quartet owns a gazebo, and this can be provided given advance notice.
