Northern Ireland Strings - String Quartet Feedback

"I just wanted to  thank you all for being part of our wedding day. Everyone has remarked how beautifully you played and that the choices of song were great.  My now hubbie stated that when you started playing 'Make you feel my love' by Adele while he was waiting on me, he could feel himself going, so it must have been good!! My wedding wouldn't have been right without 'Moon River' and it sounded amazing when I was coming up the aisle.  I couldn't have picked a better quartet to play it!" Lisa & Stephen" 28th June 2014
