Blue Topaz were absolutely incredible! The communication throughout, the clarity on contracts and the event itself were all perfection... we couldn't have asked for better. All our guests have commented on how amazing the music was and they even performed a special request on the day. Will recommend to all!

If you hire them you can count on them 100%
Blue Topaz played for my daughter's wedding at Denbies Wine Estate in July and were stunningly professional and musical. They worked hard to prepare just the songs we wanted and played them beautifully. They are the best of string groups and made the wedding in terms of the aura they created. We cannot recommend them highly enough and if you hire them, you can count on them 100%.

The music Blue Topaz played gave us a beautiful mo
We were so lucky that Blue Topaz was the musician on our big wedding day. I was sending emails back and forth with Anna to discuss music pieces for our wedding, she always gave me professional advises and reply emails in time, which made our life way easier. During the day, the music was so beautiful, everyone loved it! The music Blue Topaz played gave us a beautiful moment that we will never forget.

You are a truly talented trio of musicians
Hazel and myself would like to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding at New Place near Southampton on 30th June. The music you played was perfect for our wedding ceremony and reception. You looked great too on such a hot day! You might think you were just in the background, but almost every one of our guests commented on how good you were. You are a truly talented trio of musicians. We had a wonderful day and you helped to make it particularly memorable for us. Thank you so much.

What is your most memorable wedding?

Ah there have been so many! Perhaps the wedding when the bride received a surprise Indian ceremony from a relative of mature years during her chosen Western ceremony and the look on her face could be one of the most memorable!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

sophisticated, bespoke, professional, polished, beautiful

What about your business are you most proud of?

Our bespoke and unique arrangements of a wide range of musical styles that include the double bass!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

choose the right suppliers then trust them to do their job and make your life easier!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

There was a bride and groom who personally decorated stones as place names for every guest at their wedding - what also made this truly stunning is that the wedding took place on the beach of a Greek Island - yes, we travel far sometimes!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

You have decided to book us. Fantastic news! We then draw up a contract to ensure we are providing exactly what you would like, a deposit is taken and we can then concentrate on the interesting bit: The Music! We can advise with this if you are unsure or you can tell us your favourite numbers for inclusion. Don't forget we can also arrange favourite pieces of music if they are not on the list. Your balance payment is normally taken one month before the wedding date.

What makes a romantic first dance?

Blue Topaz love a choreographed first dance, especially if this is not something the couple would normally do and therefore it acts as surprise entertainment for their guests! However the most romantic are often when the song holds an important meaning for the couple and they feel at ease.

What is your number one floor-filler?

This is tricky as we have many! But perhaps Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns n' Roses

Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?

Impossible to name one but the strings on tracks such as Rose Royce's 'Carwash' would have been fab to play for!

What is the soundtrack to your life?

Abba's 'Thank you for the Music' :-)
