THANK YOU! We had the best day and just loved the string quartet; it really helped with the atmosphere both in the church and the reception! We are both so grateful to you and your colleagues for doing such a wonderful job!
Dorset wedding, October 2016
Thank you for the beautiful music you provided us with on Saturday. We received lots of compliments on how good the music was and out of all my wedding suppliers you were by far the easiest to deal with and most cooperative. The shortened Christina Perri was perfect to walk down the aisle too, and From This Moment is such a special song to me that it was very moving to hear it played as we signed the Register.
East Dorset wedding, April 2016
I just wanted to write to say a very big thank you for making the wedding ceremony very special. I am sorry I did not get to thank you in person. As the bride’s mother it was a shame I could not hear all the music you played but I know that my nerves were calmed when I arrived at the castle and you were playing Jurassic Park beautifully, and many guests commented on your playing.

We would like to thank you for your amazing music at our wedding at Mapperton. It was simply beautiful and we are so glad you could be there. It really created a fantastic atmosphere.

Dorset wedding, July 2015
Arioso played at our wedding in June 2015 at Tregenna Castle in St. Ives. The service we received was first class in respect of the professionalism of the members to arrive, arrange themselves ready to play, deal with the hotel staff and then get on with entertaining our guests. As the groom, I was very busy and was delighted to see Arioso just got on with what was needed.
The music was played beautifully and the recordings on the website do not give the quartet the justice they deserve. When you hear them live, it will send shivers up your spine.
What a sterling performance and they certainly made our wedding day very special indeed. I would highly recommend calling Arioso before anybody else. Great to deal with and lovely people to talk to. You will not be disappointed.

Your performance really set the tone for what became a truly special day for us and our friends and family.

All of our guests have commented on how wonderful it was to listen to your music in the beautiful sunshine with a little glass of bucks fizz!! Absolutely perfect!!!
