Gettting married

a significant event?

If you want a string quartet performing classic wedding music such as Pachelbel’s Canon or the Ode to Joy we can deliver. But you needn’t be a slave to tradition.

testimonials

“Just wanted to thank you for providing the music for our wedding day drinks reception.  We had a brilliant day and everything went really smoothly.  Unfortunately I was outside having pictures taken so did not get to enjoy much of the string quartet music but I thought you played beautifully during the ceremony and many of our guests have commented on how much they enjoyed the music during the drinks reception.  Thanks again for everything you did on the day and also prior to the wedding in helping with choosing the music.  I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you to anyone who is looking for music for their celebration.  Thanks again.”   Laura

“We hired a string quartet from mcopera.com for our wedding.  They were fantastic, playing a mix of popular music and light classical.  They played some special requests of ours including Elbow, The Verve and Dexies Midnight Runners.  All our guests commented on how good they were.  Their music and style perfectly complemented the period during the photography when the guests are enjoying afternoon drinks.  We would definitely recommend them and we are thinking of an excuse to hire them again, other than another wedding!!”   Ewan and Alison Gilliland

“Thank you so so much to the incredible quartet.  They were amazing.  They made our ceremony so special and the hymns sounded incredible.  Everyone commented how wonderful they all were.  We can’t thank you enough.  Please pass on our sincere thanks to them all and thank you to you for all your help and support in arranging Best wishes”   Charlotte and Euan
