Amazing! Like a fairytale

Everyone commented on how they really set the scene before the ceremony and there wasn’t a dry eye in sight as I came down the aisle to them playing my song. They were attentive and just amazing

Amazing, beautiful and always remembered

We cannot recommend the Fern Quartet enough. These ladies added a touch of magic to our wedding day.
We conversed with Fionnuala - she was prompt, professional, warm and incredibly helpful. They even learnt a special song for my now husband
I cant thank them enough. They played beautifully and it really was special having the Fern Quartet at wedding day.

What brilliant entertainment!

We hired the Fern Quartet after seeing them at the Arches Wedding Fayre. We knew from the moment we heard them that we wanted them to play at our wedding in July. The communication was brilliant, and at request were able to learn and play a specific song for me to walk down the aisle to. Really brilliant - would recommend to anyone.

You really can't beat live music!

An amazing wedding day made all the more perfect by The Fern Quartet. The music they played for the build up to, during and ending our wedding ceremony as well as then afterwards at our drinks reception really set the tone for what was the best day of our lives. This same sentiment has been echoed to us by a number of our guests also.

Dealing with The Fern Quartet has been an absolute pleasure throughout. We can't thank you all enough.

Fern Quartet - the most professional yet caring vender you can book.

There are quite few words to say about this quartet without sounding like a bubbering idiot! They are truly breathtaking. Every one (at our wedding) were completely mesmerised and in utter awe of the talent and beauty they perform. Modern yet classic, calming yet crowd pleasing - utterly perfect.

Wedding 12th March 2022

Really good service from start to finish. Accommodated our choice of music despite one of them being unique and not on the list of music options sent to us prior to the wedding. Really good feedback from our guests and it really made our ceremony and reception drinks that little bit more special

Wonderful String Quartet

The Fern Quartet played the most wonderful music for our wedding ceremony. I made an unusual request for my aisle song and they were so accommodating and learned the song perfectly, it was such a magical moment. They played some beautiful versions of our favourite pop songs and even had all of the bridesmaids singing along! We couldn’t have asked for a better start to the wedding and I absolutely recommend them to any other brides.

Highlight of the Ceremony

Wow. We hired the Fern Quartet to play at our July wedding for our outside ceremony. The music was beautiful and really added that extra special touch on our extra special day. Absolutely worth every penny. Lovely ladies too. Would 100% recommend.
