"We had the Stretto Quartet play at our wedding and we can't recommend them enough. Dan was incredibly helpful and professional and nothing was too much trouble. An example of this was when they learnt how to play one of the Star Wars tunes to play during the ceremony, which went down exceptionally well with all our guests. They were a great addition to our wedding and we wouldn't hesitate to use them again."
"Wow. We could not have asked for a better string group! You played beautifully!"
- Kirsty, bride
"Our experience with Stretto String Ensembles was top quality throughout. Communication was excellent and they arrived on time and as described. The two musicians were fabulous and extremely talented. They were a perfect addition to a fabulous wedding day."
"One of the best things we did at our wedding was to hire the Stretto Quartet, not only are you wonderful musicians but you were so effortless and professional to deal with. With all the things involved in getting married it’s so nice to deal with people who just get it done (and get it done well!). The amount of people who commented how great you guys were was huge. We absolutely loved having you there. The music for both the drinks reception and the wedding breakfast was nothing but perfect. You truly set the tone for our memorable day and helped to make it such a perfect occasion. I can’t recommend you highly enough, if you want a quartet at your event then none other would be better than the Stretto Quartet."
- Paul, groom
"They were wonderful! We would recommend. They were very kind and easy to book, arrived early (as planned) to setup and made our event great with their wonderful music."
"Dan and his team were a wonderful addition to our special day. Everything ran wonderfully well and our guests were thrilled with the selection of music chosen for the day. Stretto Quartet were extremely professional and leading up to the day, happily communicated with the Choir and Church, leaving my husband and I to focus on other things. Absolutely five star and highly recommended. Thanks again Dan."
- Renée, bride
"Dan was a pleasure to deal with - he even transcribed a piece of music special to us. Punctuality , appearance and musicianship excellent. Would rebook without hesitation."

"Stretto were absolutely incredible. The music was perfect and we couldn’t have wanted for better! Stunning! Thank you so much xx"

"What can we say, “Thank you so much for your performance, it was all that we expected and so much more” We will recommend the “Stretto String Quartet” to all and have passed a few short videos on to others who weren’t present, their comments are delightful, thank you so much for making our special gathering a success with your presence."
-Andrew and Annie, Newly Married
"I just want to say thank you SO much for your performance on Friday! The string quartet was one of the best highlights of my wedding day. Everyone loved you so much - it was amazing! Especially Britney Spears and Smooth Criminal!!!"
"We worked with Stretto Quartet and would thoroughly recommend them for your wedding. They have a huge repertoire of classical and modern tracks that you can choose from to really carve out the vibe and personality you want for your day. They are also happy to consider other tracks and work with you to source other arrangements as you need. Dan was great at giving advice but also ensuring we made our own decision for the day as it was our wedding. Very easy to communicate with around the event logistics and payment as well. Overall a great experience!"
"I'd like to thank you so much for playing on our big day. The music was exquisite and all of the guests were complimentary and several enquired about your group.
I'd like to also mention how positive the experience was not just on the day but also outside of it. From the Initial booking to the big day itself you were professional and proactive, taking a lot of the organisational pressure off me by presenting an easy to complete form with all of the essential information and listing out your requirements for the day along with arranging your own transport and sets.
On the day itself the quartet arrived early, were dressed impeccably and very professional setting up quietly and falling in with the timings of the day instinctively.
Thank you so much, your group are a joy to work with and I'd recommend anyone looking for an elegant strings band for their wedding or function to look no further than the stretto quartet."
"Amazing. Would 100% recommend and would book again. Thanks for everything."
"Fantastic quartet! Played beautifully and were really friendly. Thank you for a lovely performance at my wedding."
- Natalie, Bride
"It was just perfect. A wonderful touch to our fairytale wedding and had so many wonderful comments about you guys. "
- Joanna, Bride
"Dan and his fellow musicians were excellent from start to finish. Wouldn't hesitate to use again or to recommend."
"I just wanted to say a big thank you to the musicians who played at our wedding last weekend. They did a fantastic job, both during the ceremony and the drinks reception, and we loved the mix of classical and contemporary music that they played. We also had a number of guests comment on how much they enjoyed the music and how good the players were."
- Laura, Bride
"Thank you so much for your beautiful playing at our wedding.
We were so impressed by your talent and professionalism.
When the wind kept blowing your stands over, you moved and carried on like true professionals. We wanted to just stand and watch you guys but we were too busy meeting and greeting, as is the way on your wedding day!
Your playing of the brides entrance made me cry like a baby because it was so beautiful!!"
"Excellent. Professional, charming and talented musicians. They were also happy to learn a new tune that added so much to the event."
"Wow! Beautiful music for my wedding! Lots of custom songs played wonderfully and all artists were dressed beautifully! Great customer service and answers to all of my silly questions! Very reasonably priced! Brilliant!"
"Thank you so much for the amazing music for my wedding day. They band were incredible really set the tone for the ceremony and reception following. Everyone commented on how lovely the music was. Really added something special to our day."
"They were superb, worth every penny. My entrance piece was done to perfection and all my guests certainly thought "wow". They were a lovely touch to the wedding ceremony and they easily flowed with my chosen hymns to sing to."
"Excellent band to hire. Their music really did make the night and was a big talking point amongst everyone.
They were very good at being flexible (moving around to different parts of the venue to follow the night). Very professional and excellent at playing a range of music."
-Oscar, Function planner, Royal Engineers
"The group were fantastic, they were professional and highly talented. We would highly recommend them for any event, party or wedding you're organsing."
"Stretto Duo were amazing! They really made our day playing at our garden wedding reception. All the guests commented on how brilliant they were. I would definitely use again and highly recommend. Thank you for making our day so special xx"
"The Stretto Quartet were fantastic. They made our wedding that extra bit special. So many people commented on how beautiful it was to come through to the reception area and hear the strings already playing. The band catered to our taste by playing more modern songs and some classical music which was great. Many of the guests loved the fact the songs were recognisable. They even played 'I believe in a thing called love' by The Darkness which was our Marryoke song! The band are professional, smart, fabulous musicians and a great bunch of people. Highly recommend them to anyone looking for a string quartet. 5* service. A massive thanks to Dan and the band for your awesome music and for making our day even more brilliant!"
"The Stretto Ensembles were a wonderful addition to our wedding day. Super professional, and a pleasure to work with. They provided a great set list that we were able to pick from - just the right size: big enough to feel comprehensive, but without being too expansive that a classical novice like me would get lost with what to pick. For anything not on the list, they were able to acquire sheets for some music that we wanted. They were even able to put together a particular arrangement of a favourite piece of mine from a youtube video.
Super happy - I'd love to book them again for the anniversary in a few years' time!"
