Weddings

Aphrodite Strings play both classical and electric strings at weddings, balls, receptions, corporate events and parties.

At weddings, we often starting off with classical music of your choice during your ceremony and perhaps your wedding breakfast, then in the evening we are often asked to play our electric high energy strings!

The choice is entirely yours and we will play whatever you like, or suggest music from our very extensive repertoire.

Drinks Reception

Aphrodite Strings will perform some beautiful background music to entertain your guests during the drinks reception.

The music will be a mixture of different styles, including pop, jazz and some of the most well-loved classical pieces. All or any part of the set list can be picked by yourself.

The Wedding Breakfast

Aphrodite Strings will perform some light background music as the Wedding Breakfast is served.

The setlist normally includes jazz and light pop music but we are happy to include the music of your choice.

Evening Reception

Often at this point we move to our electric instruments and perform a 30 minute high-impact and exciting set which will entertain your guests. The music will be a combination of well-loved pop songs along with some thrilling classical show pieces.

For your first dance, we will be delighted to play the music of your choice if you wish.

"Aphrodite played at my daughter's wedding recently. The girls arrived early, played as the guests entered and then played "all of me" by John Legend for my daughter to walk down the aisle to and it was absolutely beautiful. I would definitely recommend them and will be using them in the future!"
