Lizzie and I would like to thank you for the amazing performance on our wedding day in November at Rudby Hall. We had so many comments to say how perfect the addition a string quartet was while people arrived and then after the ceremony and we completely agree with them. With a mixture of classical songs and modern covers it really was a great fit for our special day. The additional songs we requested were also perfectly executed and we will remember them whenever we think back to the day. We both highly recommend the Rylands String Quartet to make a wedding that bit more memorable.

I would just like to again pass on our appreciation for playing at our wedding. It was an unbelievable day which was topped off by your amazing & beautiful performance. We were blown away when we first heard you guys and the same can be said of the reaction from our guests. I can't wait to hear it back! If you want to add that WOW!! factor to your special day Rylands String Quartet are a must.

- Phil and Sarah

I would just like to say a huge thank you, for making our wedding day so special. Julia Bayman had always dreamed of having a string quartet at her wedding and you made that dream a reality. Having you there to play the entrance and exit music added the magic we were looking for at the already fabulous Rivington Hall Barn. Before and after the ceremony, you kept our guests wonderfully entertained.

- Danny and Julia

We can also play for corporate events and functions
