The Inverness String Quartet - String Quartet

The current members of this quartet are principal players in the Moray Chamber Orchestra and between them have many years experience of playing, composing, arranging and teaching a variety of musical styles.

A string quartet provides a wonderful musical accompaniment to wedding ceremonies and receptions. If there's no organist, or you'd like something a little different, a string quartet's music will make your wedding even more special. Their repertoire includes many classical and contemporary wedding favourites that suit the wedding service and the celebrations.

Typically, they will provide low-key background music before the ceremony, selected pieces during the ceremony (usually for the entrance of the bride, signing of the register, wedding march and hymns), and varied music for the reception.
