Full Description
Hi I'm Sheraine, I'm a violinist and I run South Downs Strings and I'm proud of what we offer our wedding clients. All our musicians are world-class and we've been lucky enough to play on some of the biggest stages in the world with some incredible acts. We love weddings. They're one of life's best celebrations, aren't they? We offer a variety of string groups with the string quartet, string trio and string duo being our most popular line ups. Our play list is huge and ever expanding. From classical to rock to pop and beyond we really do have something to entertain, delight and create the right atmosphere for your event. We love discovering and learning new music so if we've not got your favourite piece, just let us know. We love to provide a top class service and we want to take the time to get to know our couples so we try not to take on too many weddings each year. We provide advice as required and liaise with you at every step to ensure we create the stuff of great memories.

Accordi String Quartet played at our wedding at Hartsfield Manor recently and without doubt they were one of the best features of the day. They are the nicest people you can meet. Leading up to the wedding we had a few conversations with Sheraine about playlists and she put us at ease and took all of the stress out of music planning providing some superb recommendations. Our ceremony was beautiful and the gorgeous music had me in tears before we even walked into the room. They timed it perfectly with our walk down the aisle. Afterwards the gang played outside under an old oak tree - it looked amazing and really provided a central feature to gather around. They played all of our favourites and composed some ones that they knew we’d like - songs from LaLa Land and The Greatest Showman - nearly died when they came on - LOVED IT!!!! If you have any doubts about what music to have at your wedding then I promise that you’ll be so happy if you chose Accordi String Quartet. Thanks again for a wonderful day xx

Hi Accordi, The music was absolutely what we were looking for. Just fantastic. I was nearby when you played Cantina Band, and a bunch of other amazing ones.

went above and beyond our expectations
So grateful to Sheraine and the rest of the quartet for their performance at our wedding. We could not have asked for more and extremely grateful for all their support in song selection. Were willing to look at new pieces for us, which went above and beyond our expectations, highly recommended.
