Planning a wedding is one of the most exciting processes that one can undertake in a lifetime, but can also be an arduous task! Live string music for weddings is a match made in heaven, and Horizon Music will do our utmost to give you a bespoke musical experience at your wedding – providing the entertainment, the atmosphere and the experience to make your special day a perfect day.
The string quartet can make a priceless contribution to the wedding ceremony, whether this is a church or a civil service. The beauty and the romantic, expressive sound of string instruments will illuminate this magical moment between the bride and groom as the bride makes her long awaited entrance, as the couple sign the register to confirm their union into law, and as everyone present celebrates as they depart as a newly married couple. For smaller weddings or weddings with a more restricted budget, a more suitable option might be our string trios or duos which provide a similar though slightly more modest, intimate sound. We are also very pleased to offer an outstanding harpist to provide a similar service, as the beautiful, rounded tones of the harp is a delightful alternative to bowed string instruments.
The music played by the quartet is entirely your choice, but we are happy to provide suggestions and recommendations where required. Some popular choices include Pachalbel’s Canon in D, JS Bach’s Air on a G string, and our own version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow, but do not hesitate to make a special request of any kind – our goal is to play the perfect music especially for you on your special day.
Horizon Music is a strong believer in marriage equality, and is delighted to provide music for a marriage or civil partnership of any kind, any culture and at any venue.
