Wedding String Quartet

One of the most popular types of entertainment for a civil ceremony, drinks reception or wedding breakfast is a Wedding String Quartet. The best time for the string quartet to perform during the wedding ceremony is while your guests are arriving, play the brides entrance piece as she walks up the aisle, during the signing of the register, the recessional piece as the bride and groom go back up the aisle and then they continue to play while the wedding guests leave the civil ceremony room or church. If you book a Wedding String Quartet, then it will surely enhance the atmosphere and make the event that much more special.
Wedding String Quartets will perform a wide range of background music for your drinks reception and or wedding breakfast. This will include a selection of classical music, modern chart music, as well as golden oldies like The Beatles. If you are looking to make your wedding truly memorable then hiring a Wedding String Quartet is the way to go.

String Quartet Resources


These ensembles are made up of a combination of four stringed instruments, which normally comprise a viola, two violins and a cello, though this can vary. The violin is the smallest of the instruments and the viola is very similar, just slightly larger. Both are played in the same way, holding one end in the hand and the other end under the chin. A bow is then drawn across the strings to create the desired sound. Obviously itís a tad more complicated than that, but thatís the basics.

The cello is much larger, though very similar in shape. This is played by placing one end on the ground and the other end held by one hand. Again, a bow is drawn across the strings to play it.


The string quartet is the most prolific of all classical ensembles and many of the talented composers through history have written music scores specifically designed to be played by string quartets. These include; Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky, Brahms and many more.


The famous composer Joseph Haydn is widely considered to be the original person to set out the string quartet in its classic traditional form. Joseph was an Austrian who lived from 1732 until 1809 which made him 77 years old at the time of his death. A very long life at that time in history!


Derivatives of the standard string quartet include a string trio which would normally consist of a Cello, Viola and one Violin, or a string quintet, which is made up of a standard quartet with the addition of a another viola, cello or even a double base.
