With most functions, whether a wedding or business event, the standard booking for the quartet lasts three hours. Experience shows that this length is ideal to cover the needs and duration of most events. Naturally the quartet is happy to play for exactly as long as a client requires. As long as we have a space of about 2 metres by 2 metres and four chairs the quartet can perform just about anywhere. This has in the past included serenading the happy couple en-route to the reception on the back on the bride’s father’s flat-bed truck!

This flexibility is particularly necessary when planning a wedding. The quartet will often provide music from before the ceremony (particularly when it is a civil ceremony held in a hotel etc.) through reception drinks and right onto the speeches at the end of the wedding breakfast. Couples should be aware that there are certain legal restrictions on the type of music that can be played during the ceremony itself. Simply put nothing with a specifically religious association is permitted. So “Sheep May Safely Graze” is fine but not “Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring”!. The standard bridal marches are quite acceptable! However, in recent years the rules seem to be becoming more flexible. Some registrars now allow popular pieces such as the "Ave Maria" as long as no words are sung. This is something you should check with the registry office handling your wedding.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any query or question at all. We are particularly adept at tracking down half-remembered melodies! Our aim is to ensure that you receive exactly the music you want performed with the experience and panache that sets this quartet apart from the rest.
