Here is an idea of how Sounds Interesting can create the perfect ambience on your special day:

Pre-Ceremony: Our string quartet playing in the bar or lounge is the perfect background for family and friends to catch up with news before the wedding - allow approximately half an hour.

Civil Ceremony and Blessing: Sophisticated Classical music played by Sounds Interesting for a quarter of an hour before the wedding creates the perfect mood waiting the bride’s Grand Entrance! Music for the entry of the bride, signing of the register, and for the exit of the bridal couple is provided. Sounds Interesting has a wide range of non-religious wedding music to choose from on Anne Tupling’s website. Anne will help with your music choices. Allow about half an hour to three-quarters for the Civil Wedding ceremony.

The Drinks Reception and Photographs: Sounds Interesting play indoors or out, weather permitting, and move swiftly between the two as the weather changes! We usually play from our Popular and Contemporary repertoire for the drinks reception, including lighter music choices. Approximately one and a half hours is allowed for drinks and photographs, slightly longer in the summertime.

The Wedding Breakfast: The string quartet provides perfect background to meal time conversations, and means your guests have soothing music to listen to as they enjoy eating. We usually allow one and a half hours for a wedding breakfast up to speeches.

Church Weddings: Sounds Interesting play for twenty minutes before the wedding ceremony to create the perfect atmosphere in church as friends and family gather. We then play for the bride’s entrance, during the signing of the register and the exit of the couple. We are happy to accompany hymns, and Anne Tupling can liaise with the organist over choice of music if you wish.
Approximately three quarter’s of an hour to one hour is allowed for a church wedding.

Corporate Events: From an international conference of engineers at Nottingham Castle to Mercedes Benz ‘Drive and Ride’ days at Powis Castle, or the launch of the latest Jaguar at Hatfields, Shrewsbury, Sounds Interesting has an outstanding reputation for corporate entertainment. Their playing provides a sophisticated and stylish background to impress business clients.

"I have to say the service offered was exceptional. Very discrete. Everything we wanted from a string quartet. Thanks and best of luck for the future." Matthew


"Just to thank you and the Quartet for what you did at the funeral which would have had the full approval of Ann. We received many comments on how people had appreciated your performance. I felt it added a beautiful atmosphere in the Church and certainly enriched the service. The music was fine, in particular Elgar's Nimrod." Mike
