Wedding Music Packages

Rhapsody String Quartet provide the perfect musical accompaniment to your wedding day celebrations.

Whether you require music for your wedding ceremony or background music for your champagne reception (or both!) we have a wedding music package to suit your every need… and if not – we’ll create one especially for you!

Unlike other quartets, we don’t do our bookings as set time slots as we appreciate that sometimes on your big day, things can run a little late…

Instead, we commit to playing music for set parts of your day. If you’re a bit late arriving at your ceremony (as most brides are…!) we’ll keep on playing till you arrive, but we will not take any time off the other end of your booking – we’ll play for a full hour at your drinks reception regardless of whether you arrive on time or are 15 minutes late.

Likewise, if your ceremony and reception are in different locations, the time it takes us to travel between your ceremony and reception venue is not taken off the time that we play – the hour starts when we play our first notes at your drinks reception, not when the ceremony finishes.

We pride ourselves on having a large selection of popular, well-known classical music as well as a great selection of modern music ranging from movie soundtracks to the latest pop and rock songs. If you want a song we don’t currently have in our repertoire, we’ll be happy to arrange it especially for you.

Travelling Expenses

Rhapsody String Quartet are based in Glasgow, but we do travel!  Venues that are within a 40-mile radius of our base* will not incur any travelling expenses as we consider that area to be our “patch”.  We are happy to travel outwith that area, but with petrol prices being what they are, we do charge an additional fee. Please see below for details:

* = For the purposes of working out travelling expenses, we use the Kingston Bridge in Glasgow as our base, and use GoogleMaps to work out the distance.
