During the booking process Emma will offer advice and guidance on the different options and on music choices. There is a large song-list to choose from and special requests for ceremonies can also be catered for.

On the day, set up time is 30-45 minutes. A one hour booking will usually be enough to cover a civil ceremony, and 60 -90 minutes for a church ceremony. Drinks and evening receptions are also catered for with flexible timings to suit the client's needs.

    Amazing

    If I could give 100 stars I would! I knew from day one how I wanted my wedding day to go and it was an amazing day. All my guests have asked who was playing the violin. Absolutely amazing.

    Birthday Magic

    I will begin by saying I am not the bride -I booked Violin for Weddings to play at my birthday party. We had 100 guests, many of whom were not familiar with Emma Fisk's music. They were enchanted with the quality of the playing, the repertoire and the originality of my choice for background music. Emma was certainly a huge hit. She was very professional- arriving in good time and offering to play two sets to fit in with the serving of the buffet. I left the choice of music up to her and it was perfect. Easy to listen to, very enjoyable - suitable for all tastes. She pitched it perfectly- people could listen but also chat to friends. The music complemented the evening, it didn't overshadow the night. I would certainly recommend Violins for Weddings for weddings and parties.
