A happy client:

” We booked Cheryl and John’s string duo for an important work event for 30 people. From the word go they were extremely professional to deal with, always in touch and we didn’t have to worry about any logistics – they had it all under control! Our guests were thrilled with the music and Cheryl and John added a beautiful atmosphere to our evening with their incredible music – we can’t thank you enough! Kind regards” SMBC Aviation Capital, Luton Hoo Hotel

General information:

Ariella Wedding String DuoThe instrumentation for Ariella String Duo and Ariella String Duo Plus+ is violin and viola.

Although the repertoire for these groups is more limited than a string trio or quartet, this combination is perfect for smaller weddings and events. The String Duo is also an excellent addition to a Church Wedding Ceremony and can accompany hymns as well as play for the Processional, Signing of the register and the Recessional. The String Duo Plus+ is lighter music only.


As you can see and hear on the live video clip above, our String Duo plays a wide range of music, from classical to more modern songs. Pachelbel to Pharrell Williams – Vivaldi to The Verve!!

Duo Tickford Bridge



Ariella Strings Musicians have also played for West End shows, movie recordings, radio and television. In keeping with our saying “strings aren’t boring!”, we are proud to be able to tell you that some of our musicians have been involved musically in a few blockbuster movies, one being Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Another movie was Anna Karenina (2012).



What is “String Duo Plus+”?

Our new service String Duo Plus+ is made up of acoustic violin and viola (the same as the String Duo). The only difference is that the musicians play along to professional backing tracks, so adding lots of other instruments and drums depending on the song. The backing tracks are played on our portable, bluetooth BOSE system so we don’t need access to power. This service has proved to be very popular – please note String Duo Plus+ plays light music only.


Ariella Strings can be booked to play in Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Oxfordshire, Leicestershire, West Midlands, Gloucestershire, London but available to play further afield. (All travel expenses over 55 miles and accommodation expenses {if required} are the responsibility of the client)
