If you are looking to complement your wedding with great live music performances, I can certainly suggest that you head to Liquid Strings. I have had the pleasure to work with Brian and his team on a number of weddings and I was amazed at the quality of their performers and variety of acts provided!
Liquid Strings is a musical entertainment agency providing string quartets, bands and DJs for weddings and other events in and around London.
Brian Lee started Liquid Strings in 2007 with a strong focus on string quartets as he had been playing in wedding quartets as a violinist for several years. Although the agency has branched out to other acts as well, one of its strongest core offerings is superb string quartets playing a great mix of classical, jazz and pop arrangements in weddings. As Brian says –
“The reason the string quartet overrides all the entertainment ‘fads’ that come and go in the wedding industry is because it’s so effective and versatile. Playing light classical music as your guests arrive is a great ice breaker before the all-important ceremony. Then you have the broad choice of music for the bridal entry, the signing of the register and exit music.
You can easily mix traditional and modern, which works really well for most aspects of a contemporary wedding. We’ve had around 100 individual commissions over the past few years of favourite and personal tunes to be arranged for wedding ceremonies. It’s such a lovely touch, having a special song played in a unique format for a once-in-a-lifetime moment. With respect to all other combinations of instruments, string quartet works amazingly well for this, especially for romantic songs – but also for fun ones as well (we did Ski Sunday for one wedding where an avid skiing couple wanted to enter the ceremony venue together on skis!).
Then after the ceremony, the quartet playing recognisable pop tunes – think Pharrell, Ed Sheeran or Mark Ronson, as well as cool retro ones – ELO, Toto and Human League for example. We also play popular television and movie themes, such as the Game of Thrones and Skyfall which always create a great, fun atmosphere in which to relax and celebrate the wedding. All this from the one act. It’s why we keep getting regular bookings.”
Many of Liquid Strings wedding clients also book a band or DJ as well as a quartet, and sometimes a jazz band for the dinner. Their flexibility as a company and contacts in the industry means it’s easy to create a bespoke and individually tailored set of acts for the one event. Their guaranteed availability policy means that once booked, all you have to be concerned about is which tunes to have in the key moments, and since they’re all professional musicians they can provide a lot of guidance there too if needed.
