The Iceni String Quartet - String Quartet & Trio Feedback

I would just like to say how thrilled we were with the string trio who played beautiful music at our Function yesterday . It was everything we hoped it would be. Many of our guests commented how lovely it was and someone will be contacting you shortly for a Wedding booking next year . I will highly recommend you and will definitely be booking you again next year.

Gill Montgomery, Vikings Stadium Cheshire, Function (September, 2016)

Thank you so much for yesterday! The quartet were amazing! We just wanted to email to say how brilliant you were! We had the perfect day.

Gemma, Falcon Manor Settle Yorkshire, (September, 2016)

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the guys for doing such an amazing job the other day! It can't have been easy for them out in that cold but they were amazing! Everyone thought they were great - couldn't be happier with their performance. Huge thanks.

Andrew and Sammi, Fishlake Mill Doncaster, (December, 2016)

Please thank your musicians for their work on our behalf at the Worsley Marriott on Thursday night. They were excellent and we have had many positive comments from the guests. I was also impressed by their flexibility and willingness to accommodate our rather disorganised schedule.

John Knight, Worsley Marriot Hotel, Manchester

Sorry I've not messaged sooner, my feet haven't touched the ground. I just want to offer my sincerest thanks to the ladies who played at our wedding. They were all set up when I arrived and were incredibly professional. They played beautifully and really made the ceremony extra special. We had a great day and would recommend you guys to anyone.

Henry and Betty, , Wedding (May, 2017)

We just wanted to say thank you to you and the rest of the quartet for playing during our wedding drinks reception on Saturday. Sorry we didn't get chance to speak to you, we were pretty busy with photos at the time but we did catch the last 40 mins and you guys were great! Hope you it went well from your perspective too and you had a good time! We couldn't have wished for a better day!

Jess and Chris, , Wedding (May, 2017)

Sorry for the delayed message, but it was all a bit manic between the wedding and heading off to our honeymoon, but we have just got back and just wanted to make sure we sent an email to say thank you so much for your lovely performance at our wedding a couple of weeks ago. It was really beautiful and I actually teared up a bit stood at the top of the stairs when the entrance song began playing! Everyone said how lovely the music was and we were sorry that we didn't really get a chance to speak to you guys on the day, as we were so busy with photos and everything else, but it was just what we wanted!

Emma and Ritchie, , Wedding (August, 2017)

Please can you pass on myself and Mark's thanks, to the string quartet, for playing our wedding on 30th September at Owen House Wedding Barn. It wasn't the easiest playing conditions for them, with heavy rain outside all 110 guests were packed inside, very noisily chatting and they were positioned quite far away so we didn't hear them very well during reception drinks. Having said that, one of my favourite parts of our whole wedding day was walking down the aisle to Kanye West 'All of the Lights'- it was so beautiful and sounded even better than I had anticipated and the ironic bride and groom exit to 'Here Comes the Sun' was brilliant while it lashed it down outside.

Sarah, Owen House Wedding Barn, Mobberley, Wedding (September, 2017)

We just wanted to write to say thank you for your performances for our wedding on 6th April, both at the church and reception venue. We were really impressed with how good you all are, you were even better than we expected! Also your professionalism in arriving so early to set up was really good to see. We've had a lot of compliments from our guests about how good you were and we enjoyed the classy touch you brought to our day. We're just disappointed we didn't get to hear more of you! We look forward to seeing our wedding video to hear some more :) We'd be glad to recommend you to anyone in the future.

Lisa and Sam, , none (April, 2013)

Good morning ! Everyone LOVED you last night. We were so lucky to have you - thank you very very much ad i can't wait to see the footage of you playing when i get the dvd. All the very best

Karen and Jeremy, Wallace Collection, London, (April, 2013)

Just wanted to thank you and your friends for playing at Michelle's Wedding yesterday, Your song choices were perfect and everybody loved listening to you. Michelle and David said that they had had the best day of their lives and you and your friends were a big part of that so thank you. I must apologise for 'Little Hitler' ! moving you about all over the place, she managed to upset everyone, photographer, florist, band, Bridesmaids, you name them she upset them ! Apparently she has a reputation for being like that ! Anyway enough moaning, Thank you all for playing so beautifully and being part of Michelle and David's special day, we know they will rembember it always. If you ever need any recommendations ( Which we doubt you will !) then please do not hesitate to contact us as it would be a pleasure. Take care and thanks again.

Claire and John, Plas Isaf, Wales, (April, 2013)

I just wanted to send a thank you for helping make our day so special. We received many complements about your music and the atmosphere it helped create.

Lisa and Ben, Peckforton castle, (April, 2013)

I feel I must apologise, firstly because I didn't get the opportunity to come over to you during the wedding day and speak to you personally and secondly for the delay in sending you this email to kindly and sincerely thank you for such an excellent musical accompaniment to Eve's and my wedding day. We knew from the outset that you were an accomplished team with a repertoire to be envied by other string quartets, but the music we heard on the day was amazing. We could not have hoped for nor hired a string quartet that could have made our wedding day more special. Our quests continued to comment on your excellent performances long into the evening, which is to your credit! I would not hesitate to recommend your string quartet for musical performances and will always keep you in mind should we need a string quartet in the future. Thank you again

Daniel and Eve, Willington Hall, (April, 2013)

I just wanted to say that you all did an amazing job and helped make our day so so special. I have heard nothing but fantastic comments from my guests so thanks so much!

Dominique and Phil, Manchester Town Hall, (May, 2013)

I just wanted to email and say thank you so much for Friday. The trio was just what we wanted, and went perfect with the setting of Storrs Hall. It was lovely to hear such a range of music that suited everyone's taste. Thank you so much

Anna and Greg, Windemere, (May, 2013)

Things have just started to settle in now thankfully We would like to say thank you to you all for playing at our wedding reception at the Botanical Gardends, Birmingham. You were absolutely first class!! We have had so many nice comments on how well you all played and what a good atmosphere it created for our reception. The entire weekend was absolutely amazing, breathtaking, and more than we could have ever hoped for. Thank you again for all of your hard work and planning, it definitely did not go unnoticed. It was the most beautiful weekend!

Imran & Asma, Botanical Gardens, Birmingham, (May, 2013)

Thank you for performing at the our celebration evening on Thursday you really helped contribute to a successful event. I am sorry I didn’t get a chance to speak to you before you left.

Richard Daly, Cheshire Fire and Rescue servi, (May, 2013)

I just wanted to say a big thank you to your Trio who entertained us at our event on Saturday at Oulton Hall Hotel. They were absolutely fantastic and several people asked about them. Please pass on my personal thanks to them, they helped make the event a huge success.Thank You again and Kind Regards.
