  • 'Just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for helping to make our wedding at Bolton school a 'Perfect Day'. Your music was fabulous and it really added a tremendous amount to the ambience of the drinks reception and our wedding breakfast. We got lots of positive comments from many of our guests who all said it really added a lovely touch to the celebration.'

  • 'Thank you to the string quartet at Thackeray Music for playing at our wedding at Arley Hall. Your music was a lovely accompaniment to our drinks reception, and all the guests have commented on the wide range of songs, from traditional through to the more contemporary!'

  • 'Just wanted to thank you so much for playing so beautifully at our wedding;  everyone commented how fabulous you were!!

  • 'I just want to say a massive thank you for the string trio yesterday!  They were fantastic and me and my guests absolutely loved them!!

  • I just wanted to firstly thank you for taking part in our special day.

    Also, I would like to thank Claire, for being so helpful in the lead up to our wedding day, and my multiple and constant queries regarding the music.  Nothing was too much trouble, and you responded to me very quickly and in a professional manner which instilled confidence in me that everything would be fine...and it was.  It was more than fine, it was beautiful.

    When I first heard the quartet playing, was when I walked into the ceremony room, and I couldn't fault it.  Absolutely perfect - it made our moment all the more special, by playing a song that I had specially requested and it was done beautifully.

    I would and will be recommending Thackeray Quartet to my friends that are getting married in the near future, as it was a smooth and a reliable process booking you, and you added that little extra romantic atmosphere, to a romantic day.  Everyone commented on how excellent the Quartet was.

    A great find...courtesy of the Belle Epoque Wedding Faire!

  • 'We had a string trio of lovely gentlemen at our wedding at Shrigley Hall on 4th May this year and I cannot thank you enough. It was absolutely beautiful and really added to our special day. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a trio.'

  • 'Everything went perfectly on the 25th and we were really happy and impressed with the music both at the Midland and the Gallery. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to come over and say thank you in person but Simon and I were both delighted with everything.'
