Elegant, Professional with more than a touch of Class

Blue Topaz are professional and gifted musicians who play a variety of music and are sensitive to the occasion. They brought great joy., as well as class to our wedding. If I could, I would hire them on a daily basis to play in my house - no task would be mundane with their music playing. Thank you Blue Topaz.

Perfect experience

Blue Topaz were brilliant on our wedding day. They provided music during our drinks reception and it created the most wonderful atmosphere for our guests to enjoy. A great variety of songs and very easy to work with in the run-up to the day.

These girls were amazing

Honestly so happy about this choice. I told them the music we wanted and specific for every moment of the wedding day. Of course on the day I had forgotten most things as my head was spinning but I realised they absolutely helped with all the requests we made and created the most magical atmosphere ever! After the ceremony they followed us at the reception and arrived before us to make sure we had the same atmosphere of Christmas- romance by the time we walked in. INCREDIBLE! Thank you so much!

We were lucky

We were so lucky that Blue Topaz was the musician on our big wedding day. I was sending emails back and forth with Anna to discuss music pieces for our wedding, she always gave me professional advises and reply emails in time, which made our life way easier. During the day, the music was so beautiful, everyone loved it! The music Blue Topaz played gave us a beautiful moment that we will never forget.

Blue Topaz played for my daughter's wedding at Denbies Wine Estate in July and were stunningly professional and musical. They worked hard to prepare just the songs we wanted and played them beautifully. They are the best of string groups and made the wedding in terms of the aura they created. We cannot recommend them highly enough and if you hire them, you can count on them 100%. Their music made the event. They have excellent taste and an outstanding professional sense.. Their music is beautiful and their hearts are too!

You made our wedding special

The Blue Topaz string trio played at my wedding ceremony and I am so glad they did because they were just perfect! The music added so much atmosphere and was of a very high quality, and the special arrangement just for us added a really lovely personal touch to our ceremony. We had so many compliments about Blue Topaz from our wedding guests too, who were treated to live music whilst they waited for the ceremony to start. Thank you, Blue Topaz, for making our wedding so special!

Thank you so much

Hazel and myself would like to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding at New Place near Southampton on 30th June.
The music you played was perfect for our wedding ceremony and reception. You looked great too on such a hot day!
You might think you were just in the background, but almost every one of our guests commented on how good you were. You are a truly talented trio of musicians.
We had a wonderful day and you helped to make it particularly memorable for us.
Thank you so much."
