Absolutely amazing

We got married in January after a few postponements! And we could honestly not recommend Sonore enough. Kathryn was a joy to deal with, she responded to my emails the same day and was so helpful with all the changing dates.
The actual day was wonderful, we got so many people saying how amazing they were and that they loved the song choices. Honestly the best day and I cannot thank Sonore enough! ❤️

Wow! Just wow!

Wow! What can I say? I don’t think any words I write will do justice for just how incredible Sonore string quartet are and how special they made our wedding on the 18.12.21 at Claridges. From start to finish they have been so warm, friendly and professional. They are extremely organised and keep on top of everything from booking, to song selections, to the running of the day and all the logistics. They made everything so easy and I had no stress or worry from the moment I booked I knew they were going to be amazing and they were. Everyone on the day could not compliment them enough they are extremely talented musicians. If you want want to make your wedding or event special then Sonore are for you! I will definitely be rebooking, I could listen to them play all day! Thank you so much Sonore String quartet it was truly a pleasure to meet you all and listen to you play. Best wishes, Eloise x

Wow! Amazing!

Wow - Sonore strings totally blew us and our guests away. They were spectacular! Really added an element of class and luxury feel to the day, we were so impressed with them.

Kathryn was really responsive and helpful throughout. They’ve got a huge repertoire to pick from, but they even went to the trouble of learning a new song for us which was so special. It was a exceptional!

Cannot recommend these guys enough - they made our day!

Matt and Jade - 08/10/22

It had always been a childhood dream of mine to have a string trio at my wedding. Sonore made that dream come true!
Kathryn and her colleagues went above and beyond to play music that matched our style and tastes. One of our most cherished moments from our big day was listening to a very special song played by Sonore when everybody else was inside. Such a prescious memory and one we shall forever remember.
So, thank you. Thank you for making my childhood dream come true. Thank you for taking so much care and attention to make our special day unforgettable. But most of all, thank you for going above and beyond.

Sonore made our wedding!

Sonore were absolutely fantastic from booking to the wedding day. I dealt with Kathyrn mostly who was super professional and so thoughtful in helping us decide the perfect pieces (i know nothing much of classical music). Their music was superb and they really made our wedding - genuinely! I cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you so, so much guys x
