Our recommended Sheffield string quartets – also available to Barnsley, Rotherham and other surrounding areas – are a popular choice for wedding breakfasts, wedding processions and wedding receptions, since the sense of occasion and importance the music creates, coupled with the musicians' smart formal attire, adds a great deal to the specialness of your big day (as do their beautiful renditions of such processional pieces as Wagner's Bridal Chorus and Beethoven's Ode to Joy).
