Wedding Proposal

So, I was looking for a string quartet for my proposal event and I saw and reviewed the Sonore String Quartet and was impressed by their fantastic reviews.

I am here to add to those reviews, they were absolutely amazing!! Before I'd even confirmed the booking, I was in touch with Kathryn about the event and a tailored list of songs that I wanted for the proposal. She said that if they didn't know it, they'd obtain the sheet music for it so they could perform it, nothing was too much trouble.

The payment transaction was a doddle and I was provided a copy of the invoice. Then, they liaised with the venue to establish their entry (a fair bit of sneaking around was required as to not give the game away!) and as we walked up the pathway towards the area booked out, oh, such sweet music!

Luckily, my now fiancée didn't twig that they were there for her, allowing us to have time to pick the right moment to give myself a well earned knee ache!

Sonore String Quartet brought such a degree of elegance and classiness to the event and made such beautiful music for all my family to enjoy. And to boot, they were absolute troopers on quite a blustery, cold day. They are a credit to their profession, book them, you definitely won't regret it, I certainly don't! I'll be having them at my wedding :)  Neil W  April 2021

Wedding Ceremony

Sonorestrings completed our wedding ceremony!!! Kathryn and the rest of the team were so lovely and accommodating to our constantly changing plans throughout the pandemic. We ended up having an intimate smaller church ceremony that was on a live stream to all our family and friends across the world. Our virtual guests absolutely LOVED the music choices ranging from classical, to film, to hymns, and finally including Bollywood classics during the signing of the register which was a lovely nod to our Indian culture! Even our Priest and the Church Stewards were so delighted to have the strings trio play as it's something they have never had at a wedding in the Church before! Really pleased we booked the talented Sonorestrings as they made our ceremony extra special! ❤ Mr and Mrs L

Wedding Ceremony and Drinks Reception

Reliable and outstanding musicians - We booked Sonore String Quartet to play at our wedding in the South of France during the summer of 2019 and are so glad that we did. They were reliable and helpful in the lead up to our wedding. My wife and I were not sure on which songs to have and they helped us to choose the right ones for us and were very understanding. On the day of our wedding they turned up early in plenty of time. We did not have to worry about them and all of our guests remarked on how well they played and how professional they were. We cannot speak highly enough of them. One of the best decisions we made was booking them to play at our wedding! Would highly recommend them. Nick and Nicky August 2019


Wedding Ceremony and Drinks Reception

We employed the services of Sonore String Quartet for our intimate Civil Wedding service on the 14th Sept at The George Hotel, Stamford, where they played for the service and after in the garden. Beforehand Kathryn corresponded brilliantly. Their presence and performance helped to make one very special day. Thank you so much,

I had the pleasure of working with these talented musicians at a wedding in Provence; I was blown away by them. As a celebrant I've worked with many string quartets, and Sonore String Quartet is by far the best. Thank you for your music!

Simply put, these guys are amazing! Do not hesitate to book them. They played at our wedding a few weeks ago and we had so so many compliments from our guests. Their repertoire is so eclectic and they played classical as well as all our modern favourites. They tailored the song list to include mine, my husbands and my Dad's favourites as well which was very much appreciated. Thank so much once again xx

Charity Garden Party

“Sonore String Quartet joined us at our recent Moat Garden Party at Windsor Castle. They helped create such a beautiful atmosphere, and their broad range of music meant that there was something for all tastes. Despite it being the hottest day of the year, Kathryn, Neil and Giles were a pleasure to host, and the whole booking and communication process was so easy. Many of our guests commented on how wonderful the music was, and our esteemed hosts were equally as impressed!”

Drinks Reception

Brilliant musicians who were friendly and approachable and we felt that they were part of the wedding party. They were the icing on the cake of an already fantastic day and I would thoroughly recommend them.

Wedding Ceremony and Drinks Reception

Sonore String Quartet performed at our wedding on Saturday 4th May 2019 in Shrewsbury and we couldn’t be happier!They played as our guests arrived, the ceremony and reception drinks. From the initial enquiry we were extremely happy with the personal service we received from Kathryn, responses were helpful and quick - even when we were delayed ourselves.
We took a while to decide on our song choices, but Kathryn and the rest of the group were very accommodating and played ...a huge range of styles for us, from a suggestion from the grooms grandad to learning a song especially for the groom (Final Fantasy sound track) which he absolutely loved for before the ceremony. On to classical and modern pop for the rest.
Even though the sun was shining the air was cold being an outdoor ceremony but they all played through it like troopers to enable us to have our dream ceremony.

Once again, a huge thank you to all of you in Sonore String Quartet for making the journey to be a part of our wedding day, both the two of us and our guests LOVED having you there and listening to you play.
We highly recommend booking with Sonore for any event with their diverse repertoire, skills and great personal service.

Thank you again!

Wedding Ceremony and Drinks Reception

Sonore strings were one of the biggest highlights of our wedding. Communication leading up to the event were always immediate. They were able to put together special requests and most importantly played absolutely perfectly on the day. So much so it made the bride (me) cry and we received several comments from our friends and family that the strings made the ceremony so special. The guys were so flexible before and during the day, a dream to work with. Very highly recommended!! K and N May 2019

Wedding Ceremony and Drinks Reception

Just wanted to say thank you for organising the very memorable music for our wedding on 6 April. Everyone complimented both Giles's playing in the church and the trio in the pub - sadly we missed them in The Rosendale as we went to have some photos taken nearby but I will never forget Giles playing Pachelbel's Canon as I walked down the aisle and also the two Elgar tunes. I know our guests enjoyed the trio in The Rosendale very much.

Wedding Service & Reception

A huge thank you to Sonore String Quartet for the beautiful music they played at our wedding.  Firstly for playing me down the aisle so beautifully and then during our reception.  They truly added to a perfect day for us.


From start to finish the quartet were professional and polished, even learning our first dance for us from scratch. They were not fussed by changing timetables as sometimes happens at weddings & were happy to play our requests.  Their musicality and passion for the music were clear from start to finish.


We thoroughly recommend Sonore String Quartet to anyone wishing to add something special to their event.


Thank you again.

Accompanying a Choral Concert

Thank you SO much for your playing and support tonight. It was a tough programme for the choir but there is no doubt that your playing made life easier for them.

As a quartet, the sound you make blends beautifully and, if it's at all possible, I'd love to work with you all again.

Wedding Breakfast

Gemma and I would like to thank Sonore for their beautiful performance at our wedding. From start to finish, they oozed class and were the perfect accompaniment as our guests arrived for drinks and nibbles. Guests of young and old commented on their wonderful repertoire and as a personal surprise, they even arranged a version of our first dance song.

As performers, Sonore are highly skilled, professional and passionate. They take great pride in their work and deliver on the promises they make prior to the performance.


Once again, we'd like to thank Sonore for making our day even more magical! To anyone else considering a String Quartet at their event, we recommend them to you unreservedly.
