“Booking Occasional Strings for our wedding in January was one of the best decisions that we made! They were absolutely great from the moment that we first made contact with them, right through until the day itself. The group even learned a new piece for our wedding (’Whatever’ by Oasis) and did everything they could to make our day as special as possible. Our guests are still talking about their playing and having their beautiful music at our wedding really helped to create the atmosphere we were aiming for. I really wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Occasional Strings!” – Hollie and Brendan

We would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone and would love to organise another party so we could hear you play again! Thank you so much for adding to a brilliant day.” – Julia and Paul
