Lovely reception music

Capriccio played our wedding ceremony and for the drinks reception for our wedding at Pauntley Court in June this year. They were absolutely fabulous, so many guests commented on how lovely it was to hear them playing throughout the day, it really added something special. They were also kind enough to learn a new song for us for my walk down the aisle too, something we are so grateful for and will always remember how special that moment was. Would definitely recommend. Thank you so much!

Manor by the Lake, Cheltenham

We are so glad we booked Capriccio Quartet for our wedding. We had lots of songs to choose from and they were happy to accommodate some special requests for us. Everyone enjoyed the music during the ceremony and reception. Having live music really made the day special and the booking process was fantastic and well handled., They know the venue well and work with them directly, which took away a lot of stress from us.

The expertise provided by Capriccio Quartet during the booking process and beyond was second to none. We were helped enormously by receiving a full range of their repertoire as well as to be able to listen to their performances on their website. This enabled us to choose the most perfect selections of music for our outdoor ceremony and the quality of the music performed was perfect and beautiful.

Cotswold Wedding July 2019

We were amazed by the musicians, especially with their extensive repertoire and that they could play music not already on their list. They filled the room with beautiful music and even played outside which made for perfect harmony. They made our day so special and we are so appreciative of the quartet and couldn’t have asked for better.

Gloucestershire Wedding - August 2019

We had so many comments about Capriccio Quartet from our guests. As I got ready, I could hear them playing which was lovely and it was a wonderful welcome for our guests. The music really made the atmosphere calm, welcoming and enjoyable. It was just what we wanted! We also loved the wide range of music offered and had a mixture of classical pieces and modern songs following our ceremony.

Little Comberton Church Wedding, Worcestershire

Amazing, personalised customer service. Stunning array of music from playing Beethoven as I walked down the aisle to some lovely pop songs such as Adele and everything in between. They performed hymns in the church and these wonderful musicians made our day perfect. They couldn’t do enough for us to make our day special - highly recommend.

Wedding Ceremony in Berkshire 7/9/19

Capriccio Quartet were absolutely amazing; all our guests commented on how fantastic they sounded and set the scene for the day. We had a slight hiccup at the start of the ceremony and all I can say is that the quartet went above and beyond for us. We would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quartet for their wedding.

Worcestershire Wedding

We had nearly given up hope of having a string quartet due to budget restraints, however we found Capriccio Quartet who were better value than many others. We did wonder “where’s the catch?” However, their repertoire of songs was perfect, their customer service was fantastic and on the day they performed fantastically. They also had to move between the church and the reception venue and did so seamlessly. We would definitely recommend and use Capriccio again - thank you!

July Wedding

Having gone back over the day with my new husband and reminisced with the guests, we cannot actually find even the tiniest speck of fault with Capriccio Quartet! Communications via email and phone could not have been more prompt and clear and their choice of songs was vast! They completely understood the feel of the wedding and fitted in perfectly. HIGHLY recommended!

Church Wedding

Capriccio Quartet were a pleasure to work with and gave the most professional and outstanding performance during our wedding ceremony. They played flawlessly and even improvised when timings ran over and we hadn’t chosen enough music. Capriccio Quartet were able to offer sound, educated and professional advice on our music choices, whilst also allowing us the freedom to keep it personal.
