Testimonials

We hired Sole Bay Strings for our wedding at Braxted Park on the 1st October last year, and so glad we did! They played Canon in D by Pachelbel for me walking down the aisle, Marry You by Bruno Mars and One Day Like This by Elbow for signing the register, and Stevie Wonder Signed, Sealed, Delivered for our walk down the aisle. Despite the band usually playing as a quartet, we had a duo on the day due to the space at the venue. They went out of their way to adapt the music score as a duet, so that we could have the songs we wanted. It was perfect! So many people commented how lovely it was to hear modern songs played so beautifully in string. I’m so grateful to Sole Bay Strings for helping to make our wedding so wonderful, and can’t recommend them enough!”

Dear Jo, Caroline, Helen and Wendy. Just a quick email to thank you all for being so fantastic on our wedding day. We were both so upset we didn’t get a chance to thank you in person but the day was a whirlwind. Your talent was exceptional and played a huge part in making our day so wonderful. Although only 30 guests were allowed every single attendee commented on how wonderful it was to have such talent. This also extended to the people from the village who were watching from the roadside. Thank you all so much for moving from inside the church and continue playing outside whilst we are having our phots taken. It was magical.”

Hi I'm really sorry I never got the chance to talk or thank you personally, but can I just say a massive thank you. Just absolutely beautiful. We’ve had so many compliments from our guests about you all too. You honestly just sounded perfect and everything was perfect too. Thank you”
