Reflection - String Quartet | South East(4 Reviews)
Based In: South East
Reflection creates the perfect ambience for a church wedding or civil ceremony. Our performance begins from the moment your guests arrive and continues for the entrance of the bride, the signing of the register and the exit of the bridal party.
Our repertoire includes all the famous bridal marches and traditional wedding music. For a church wedding we are also able to play hymns.
We understand that flexibility is important for any wedding celebration. Reflection is able to perform in a variety of settings and locations and is happy to play outside ... wherever possible. Our lighter selection of music is ideal for drinks receptions while guests mingle and relax and photographs are taken.
