Wedding String Musicians

It’s your special day, so of course everything has to be perfect! Not only do we appreciate the importance of the occasion, we understand how live music can enhance both the ceremony itself and the celebrations that follow.

It’s your special day, so of course everything has to be perfect!

Not only do we appreciate the importance of the occasion, we understand how live music can enhance both the ceremony itself and the celebrations that follow.

First, decide when you’d like Apollo Strings to play. For example, live accompaniment for the processional can be magical, along with a musical interlude whilst the registers are signed.

Or you may prefer to save the performance for the reception or wedding breakfast? Whatever you decide is fine with us – we’re even happy to move venues so that we can support your celebration during both the ceremony and the party afterwards.

Next, think about the size of ensemble that would suit your occasion best. A duo or solo musician will obviously fit better into a small venue and can create a wonderfully intimate atmosphere. A trio or quartet, however, will create more volume, has a slightly more flexible repertoire, and can be more appropriate for larger venues.

Finally, give some thought to the kind of pieces you’d like us to play. There are examples of our repertoire on this site, but if you can’t find what you’re looking for, just ask. Apollo members are as comfortable playing pop standards as they are classical.
