Frequently Asked Questions

What is included in the wedding package?

As little or much as you require. We go from booking solo players only to bespoke packages of up to 4 different acts for the same wedding. We pride ourselves on a flexible approach

How far in advance should I contact you?

Ideally around 6 months - 1 year. It's harder to quote for weddings in 3 or 4 years but we're always happy to address any questions and last minute bookings can also work well on certain dates

Size of group:

Soloist
Small (2 - 3 musicians)
Medium (4 - 6 musicians)
Large (7 or more musicians)

Repertoire:

A large and varied repertoire depending on which group you hire from us. We work with classical, jazz and pop musicians as well as gospel choirs and wedding DJs. From classic to pop and much more!

Is it possible to request something that's not in the repertoire?

Yes it is. Sometimes this incurs an additional cost - it totally depends on the request but we will always look into any requests for you before you decide if there is an arrangement/learning fee

Experience:

All our musicians, singers and DJs are highly experienced. Liquid Strings is run by wedding musicians and we only work with highly professional artists who love what they do

Do you have your own equipment?

Yes

Do you need specific materials or conditions to offer your service?

Yes, for the string quartets we require shade if an outdoor wedding as direct sunlight damages the expensive instruments. All musicians and DJs appreciate refreshments also

Are you able to travel?

Yes, surrey, Kent, Berkshire, Essex mainly - sometimes a bit further if needed

Is there a charge for traveling?

Yes, it depends on the location - if it's fairly close we will just charge around £25 petrol per car. For a long journey (ie more like 1.5 hours plus) we charge more due to longer time frame involved

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

Yes

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

With a team

What is the length of time of the act?

It depends on the act. We work with several acts and can offer bespoke packages - maybe just one musician for the guests arrival and ceremony or a whole package to cover the start to the last dance

How much time do you need to prepare for an act?

Set up time varies - between 30 mins - 2 hours depending on the act. Most acoustic music acts will just arrive 30 mins before playing. Bands and DJs take longer to set up with more equipment

Do you do open-air acts?

Yes

Do you charge per hour or per event?

Per event

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?

Yes

How do you charge extra time?

We usually have to arrange this in advance. It really depends on the act, but for 99% of weddings, there is no need for overtime as the timings of an average weddings are very clear and established

What are the forms of payment?

We ask for at least 30% deposit and the balance around one month in advance. We can be slightly flexible but always require payment in advance to refuse other wedding work offered

    Really great service from start to finish!

    Liquid Strings- Thank you!!

    What great service from the first contact right up until the end.

    Carina the cello player was such a sweet, talented lady! She was such a lovely edition to our wedding day. She made an amazing day that little bit more magical ?...
    You were all so understanding with us having to wiggle things around due to Corona restrictions and never made me feel bad about needing to change plans (I was supposed to have a quartet but aftwr the government announced that suppliers counted.. we swapped very easily for a soloist. (You were even going to let me swap back again when the guidelines changed again two weeks before the wedding- thank you Brian!

    Brian even reaches out to me just just check in after hearing that my numbers for the wedding would need to be halved... going above and beyond as this was not part of his job!

    You were super responsive at every stage even two years before my wedding when I first reached out to you guys.

    Thank you!

    Everyone was talking about how good the music was. I’ll always remember the music so vividly because of you.

    Lively band and perfect for wedding

    Brian was extremely helpful with our song choices and gave us good recommendations on the songs for the ceremony.Everyone enjoyed the string quartet. We received good feedback on the quartet from the guests. Would definitely recommend them to anyone who are looking for a string quartet for any event. Thanks again Brian and the rest of the quartet!

    Amazing Gospel Choir - made our day!

    I wanted a Gospel Choir to sing at our wedding in June but my husband wasn't onboard with the idea. The theme was a contemporary London wedding and he was worried that a Gospel Choir might sound a bit dated.

    Brian at Liquid Strings was so helpful and accommodating. So much so, that the choir even learnt a new song at our request as we wanted it to be performed during the ceremony itself.

    One of the best moments of the wedding, was when my previously 'doubtful' husband leant over and whispered in my ear (when the Choir were singing) "you were totally right love, they are amazing, this is totally perfect".

    Our guests loved the choir and they had everyone singing and clapping along at the end, as we left the building. It was fun, upbeat and very unique.

    I would totally recommend Liquid Strings to anyone - as I really cannot fault the service. My only regret is that we had already booked our evening reception DJ prior to finding Liquid Strings and I wish I had used them to book entertainment for the whole event.

    Fun, uplifting and much talked about

    We had a civil wedding ceremony at the beautiful Islington town hall on 28th May 2011, and we had hired four of the Liquid Strings gospel singers as a surprise act at our wedding. They dressed to blend in with the rest of the guests as we'd asked, and so it was a surprise for everyone there when they stood up and sang 'signed, sealed, delivered' as Jane and her Dad walked down the aisle. They performed three other songs during the ceremony and the signing of the register, and their singing was fantastic. At their last song, 'your love is lifting me higher', all the audience were clapping along but out of sync and the singers somehow managed to carry on singing beautifully, in time and in tune! We had several 'acts' throughout our wedding day, and the Liquid Strings singers were by far the most complimented and talked about by our guests. Thanks again.

    Best band ever!

    We hired Liquid Strings to play cover songs at our wedding. They were simply amazing! They were full of energy and sounded superb! Everyone at the reception would not let them leave. They REALLY entertained us. The service we got from Brian was so good we invited him to the wedding! He gave us 100% effort working up the wedding. Dont book anyone else, these are the guys to go for!

    Perfect!

    Liquid strings played at my wedding and they couldn't have done a more perfect job. There were a couple songs that I knew I wanted for walking up/down the aisle and Brian did a fantastic job of tracking down the music and coordinating guitar and violin renditions. In addition to these songs, he also coordinated with a close friend of mine too accompany her on violin and guitar as she sang during the ceremony. Thank you for making the day that much more special and for being such a pleasure to deal with.'

    So many compliments about the music

    Thank you so much for your email and for the wonderful music on Saturday. We’ve had so many compliments on the music so guests definitely heard the trio despite the crowd noise - we’re a bit of a loud bunch!!
    I’ll definitely be recommending Liquid Strings to friends and family, a lot of whom are engaged and planning weddings at the moment.

    Such lovely music

    Hi Brian - just wanted to send along our gratitude to you and the Liquid Strings musicians who played such lovely music at our wedding ceremony two weeks ago.
    I received several comments about the cool, unexpected renditions of popular music you were playing during the drinks reception, and I was personally so happy to hear classical music being played live by the three of you at the ceremony. John was good fun during the evening, although as I expected, the party did not get under way until after the sun had set. He was a pro and played good music for us all to enjoy while we mingled in the bar area until it was time for dancing shoes. Many thanks to all of you for helping us create such happy memories of our wedding day.

    We could have listened all night

    I would highly recommend Liquid Strings to play at your wedding! From the first point of contact, Brian was so responsive and friendly. He came up with great suggestions for both the ceremony music and the reception afterwards and played beautifully on the day. We also booked our evening DJ through Liquid Strings and David kept everyone on the dance floor until the end - even my 95 year old grandma was dancing!

    Absolutely brilliant

    We had a string trio playing at our wedding and they were absolutely brilliant. They created a lovely ambiance and we could have listened to them all night! Booking the trio was straight forward and Brian was very helpful. Would highly recommend them.
