Weddings: make your ceremony unique...

A string quartet can be an ideal accompaniment to both civil and religious ceremonies. Music fulfils an essential role at several key points in the ceremony, and members of The Ulster String Quartet are always available to discuss the ways in which we can make the music for each such occasion as enjoyable, personal and memorable as possible. For church ceremonies, an organist often accompanies the hymns, but we will gladly undertake this role if required.

Sample repertoire suggestions for each stage of your ceremony:

As the guests arrive and take their seats
  • A selection of light classical music (Mozart quartets, for example)

For the entrance of the bride (Processional)
  • Handel's Arrival of the Queen of Sheba
  • Wagner's Bridal March from Lohengrin

During the signing of the register
  • Pachelbel's Kanon
  • Bach's Air on a G String

For the outgoing procession (Recessional) and departure of the guests
  • Hornpipe from Handel's Water Music
  • Mendelssohn's Wedding March from A Midsummer Night's Dream

An extra touch
We can also provide additional musicians should you so wish. We regularly play with the leading lights of the classical music scene in Northern Ireland. Whatever instrumentation, we can help cater for any ensemble you want.

Should you wish be to have a singer perform at your wedding look no further - The Ulster String Quartet are proud to have an exclusive relationship with nationally renowned soprano Rebekah Coffey.

Rebekah has appeared as soloist with many of the UK’s leading orchestras including the Ulster Orchestra, the Hallé and BBC Concert Orchestra as well as the RTÉ Symphony Orchestra. Her most recent performance with the Ulster Orchestra was at Hillsborough Castle in the BBC Proms in the Park.

Wedding breakfasts, formal dinners, drinks receptions and parties
The sound of a string quartet can greatly enhance the ambience of a formal dinner or reception. The Ulster String Quartet performs at many such occasions, lending a discreet air of sophistication with a selection of classical favourites such as Haydn and Mozart string quartets and classics from the operatic repertoire.

We are often asked to provide background music for the full duration of such events. Alternatively, we can play just whilst the guests arrive and drink their apéritifs, in order to create an atmosphere conducive to conversation and to establish the character of the dinner to come.

Lovers 'No Good' At Spotting Others In Love

The next time you're at a party with the love of your life, don't spend a lot of time trying to identify other couples in love – chances are, you aren't very good at it.

Golfers may be able to identify a sweet swing, and runners admire a lengthy stride in others, but a study has found that when it comes to identifying couples in love, no one is worse than – well, couples in love.

"Love is truly blind," said Frank J. Bernieri, professor and chair of the Department of Psychology at Oregon State University and one of the authors of the study. "People in the study who had the longest relationships, were immersed in reading romance novels and spent lots of time watching romantic movies just loved this research. They all were quite confident of their ability to identify others in love.
