Wedding Strings - Violin and Guitar Duo

This experienced classical guitar and violin duo offers a unique and memorable program for weddings, recitals, private and corporate events. They have a sophisticated and infectious repertoire encompassing Jazz, Baroque, Classical, Contemporary and World music.

Experienced in all types and size of wedding and corporate venue, from country houses to castles and hilltop chapels to cathedrals, they have played in such premier wedding venues as the Guildhall, Windsor and the Castle Mound, Edinburgh. With their subtle and mellow amplification, they can fill any venue regardless of size.

In recital, this Duo has a formidable reputation for their performance of Spanish and South American repertoire for which the instruments are ideally suited. Having performed in major festivals and concert venues throughout the United Kingdom, they have given recitals in several of the Country's cathedrals, in the prestigious Three Choirs Festival and a brilliant Tango programme for the Edinburgh Fringe.

"The underlying sophistication was ideally realised, her soulful-toned violin being complemented by his rhythmic and percussive security"

"We both really appreciated your talent, choice of music and professional approach"
