    Fantastic!

    Saffron Strings played at our wedding and they were fantastic. They were really accommodating with our music choices, even down to specific requests for songs that weren't on their repertoire and timings of surprise songs! I highly recommend them.

    Fabulous musicians

    Thank you both so very much for being so amazing and playing our chosen music so beautifully. I am so sorry we didn’t get to thank you on the day or say goodbye – everything was a bit of a whirlwind and we didn’t stop for the rest of the day! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for fabulous musicians. You made our day all the more perfect. Thank you again.

    Amazing!

    David and I wanted to say a massive thank you to you for playing beautifully at our wedding on Saturday. It sounded great and we had a number of our guests comment on what an amazing string quartet we had. The entrance song made me cry - even when walking down the aisle - as it was just beautiful! Thanks for being part of our special day. Katie & David

    Nailed it!

    On behalf of my wife and I, we just wanted to thank Saffron Strings for absolutely nailing the music on our day. The Stand By Me entrance music was perfect. We obviously had a lot to take in, but watching back various videos, it's the icing on the cake! We've also had various guest compliments on the quality of the string music (Game of Thrones was particularly popular!). Assuming we don't have to book ourselves another wedding, we would definitely recommend you to friends and family! Once again, thank you from both us, you helped make our day unforgettable! Kind regards, Iain and Vicky

    Perfection

    Martyn and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for your beautiful playing on Saturday. We genuinely couldn't have asked for anything more. The sound of the strings in that room was perfection. Many of our guests also commented on how wonderful you were. Thank you again! Best wishes, Emma & Martyn x

    Heavenly sounds

    We had a string duo for our wedding in April and I am so glad we booked Saffron Strings. It all went so smoothly from the booking process to the wedding day! And we had the most heavenly sounds for our ceremony and reception. Highly recommend.

    Beautiful music

    We just wanted to say thank you so much for playing your beautiful music during our wedding ceremony. I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to say hello to you during the day but it absolutely made the ceremony. It was so wonderful hearing the string duet throughout, and I think it contributed largely to a lot of people's tears!
    Thank you again,

    Perfect

    Perfect. Their communication, value for money, efficiency, presentation, repertoire, elegance and quality of performance couldn’t have been better. They even learnt a new piece for my arrival at church. They fitted in beautifully at our elegant reception and my memories of that part of the day are soundtracked by their versions of Handel and the Beach Boys. Gracious artists and utter professionals.

    Played beautifully

    Saffron Strings duo played beautifully at our outdoor ceremony and reception in August for our wedding! We picked a film soundtrack theme which they embraced with open arms and learnt a few new songs for us! They suggested some wonderful songs for my entrance and our exit as newly weds, and were always quick to reply. Would definitely recommend!
