Wedding - Lake District - Amazing Music

What the Pluck were amazing, they made the ceremony magical and even learned a new song for us to make it extra special.
All our guests commented on how amazing they played and how great the set list was.

Music to our ears!

Clare was perfect as our solo violinist, played all of our ceremony choices (which two weren’t on the repertoire) to absolute perfection. Couldn’t have asked for more.

Incredible string quartet!

Absolutely loved having the string quartet play at the wedding. We really appreciated that they learnt so many new songs for us too. The communication was fantastic and the guests absolutely loved the music. Highly, highly recommend! Thank you so much!
