The Capella Quartet played at our wedding. They were brilliant- they played before and during the ceremony and we had lots of guests comment on how they started the party before the wedding even began- I'm just sorry I missed it! The musicians were all amazing players and extremely well presented. Shout out to David for advising me what music would work well for strings when I was being indecisive, and all the arrangements were fantastic. I couldn't recommend the Capella quartet more for any event- thank you!

Need to think up another reason to book you again.

Hey guys, Sorry this has taken me so long- I’m just getting back to normality! But just wanted to say thanks for all of your efforts…I loved the music on the day of the wedding and it really helped to make the ceremony special. All of the guests were commenting on how great the music was! Jay and I had an amazing day- we were talking afterwards about if we would have changed anything and we were saying we would have had less time getting photos taken so we could have heard you play at the hotel as everyone was saying how great it was. Thanks again for all of your efforts with the preparations too- I really appreciate it. I’m not planning on remarrying anytime soon so will need to think up another reason to book you again, but will be recommending you to all my friends who get engaged in the meantime.

I used Capella String Quartet for a corporate event. I was very impressed not only by their professional performance musically but in everything they did leading up to the event and on the day itself of course. All the musicians were well presented and very talented. They showed up early to the event to set up and sound check so no stress on my part worrying about them coming or not!!! The music was well received by everybody and I still have people telling me how much they enjoyed the music and how different it was. Thank you David for making this an effortless and enjoyable experience all round.

Hi David / Alan and amazing crew! Just wanted to write you a thank you for playing at our wedding. You really made the ceremony so special and I’m so glad you came and played so beautifully- everybody loved you. I’ll never forget the moment walking down the aisle and feeling like I was in a film because of the superb soundtrack your beautiful renditions afforded. I’m also so glad he have a video which meant I could hear the rest of your set. Thank you again you were true artists!

Love, Amber and Ross Married at St Joseph’s church in Wemyss Bay on 3rd November 2014 18 Nov You were 100% worth every penny we spent… Posted With Pride By Alan Hi Capella! As it is now the month of my 1st wedding anniversary I am sending this email (finally!) to thank you! I am so sorry that it has taken nearly a year for you to receive this, I honestly don’t know where the time has gone and I feel terrible as you did a fantastic job! Thinking back to the wedding, my husband and I loved the music. You made our ceremony magical and our drinks reception fun! The quartet were the talk of the evening and everyone was very impressed with them especially the range of modern songs played. In the last year I have been asked by people who were not even at my wedding but had heard from guests how good you were for your details 🙂 (I was aware you changed name so don’t worry I passed on that information too) I loved dealing with you, you were incredibly helpful and professional. You were 100 percent worth every penny we spent, and my favourite ‘extra’ of the afternoon 🙂 I now can’t wait until the anniversary arrives that means we get to hire you again! I’m thinking our 5th wedding anniversary haha, Rory may not agree this is a milestone however!

We'd recommend the String Quartet to any friends and family for weddings or events. The quality of music was excellent and they played a great mix of classic and modern music for our reception with very little direction from us. Due to covid restrictions they had to adapt to how they would normally play and were very accommodating, engaging and generally helpful whilst we were planning. I can't recommend the Capella String Quartet highly enough.

Capella played at our wedding at One Devonshire Gardens. It was perfect. They played such a varied set and guests loved their take on contemporary classics. The ceremony music was even better than we had hoped for and provided an amazing backdrop. Could not recommend them enough.
