Why people choose The Ardeton String Quartet


We are a long-standing string quartet with experience of playing at over 1200 events. As well as performing for events we work as a session quartet and play for concert societies and festivals across the UK.

We are professional in our communication. From the moment you first make contact, we will guide you through the process of arranging the perfect music for your event, from quotation through to issue of contract, and on to choosing the set list and where to have the quartet perform on the day.


Unlike many other groups, there is no hourly rate at weddings. The quartet works on a package system, so if everything doesn't quite run to time on the day, you can be happy in the knowledge that we will keep playing and entertaining your guests.

We also offer all wedding clients a free 'music consultation', either by phone or in person. We can help you pick music for your ceremony, talk through the timings for the ceremony, and any other aspects of the day to make sure everything runs smoothly and to plan.

Our Music Selection

We have one of the largest and varied collections of repertoire in the country, and over 14 hours of music, and it's continually expanding. If you want something unique or special which isn't on the list yet, we are always happy to arrange the music for a small fee.

We also offer a 'jukebox' option for wedding meals and special occasions - each table has a card with a selection of our repertoire printed on it, and either as individuals or as a table, people can request or dedicate songs, then sit back and wait for us to play them.
