Reviews

Scotia Strings

We booked our evening entertainment first, and then later decided to book the Scotia String Trio to play before, during and after our ceremony.
They were brilliant, and played our requested songs absolutely perfectly and then a beautiful mix of music during our outdoor drinks reception.
Could not have been happier with everything on the day, and would not hesitate to recommend the Scotia String Trio to anyone! Thank you again :)!


Scotia Strings

Completely stress free experience from start to finish with Hireaband. The quartet fulfilled all our requests and played beautifully on the day. We were delighted with them and one of our guests was even inspired to book a string trio for her wedding.

Scotia Strings

We absolutely loved having scotia strings at our wedding! We were provided with a comprehensive list of songs to choose from and the group performed beautifully and professionally on the day. The group were commented on many guests. A welcome addition to our day and would recommend!

Scotia Strings

We approached Scotia Strings a couple of months before our wedding to play at our ceremony and we're so glad we did! Lizzy was so helpful throughout the whole process and responded really quickly whenever we had any questions. Their set list offers a wide range of beautiful music to choose from and any songs that we wanted that wasn't in the list, they were more than happy to learn and play on the day.

Thank you so much for making our ceremony even more memorable with your beautiful string set. It added a special element to our day that we will cherish forever.

Scotia Strings

Just a note to say 'thank you' for Scotia String's performance which my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed and which many of our guests commented favourably on. As we discussed when booking, this is the second time you have provided music for us, the previous time around four years ago at The Gleneagles Hotel for our 40th Wedding Anniversary. With our very best wishes to you and your fellow musicians. (10 / 10)

Scotia Strings

Stunning music and such a friendly group! Scotia String Trio played before and during our wedding ceremony. We decided to use them after seeing them at a friends wedding as they play stunning music and such fun covers! They have a HUGE list of songs to choose from- classics to fun covers and they even learned a new one for our wedding! Great job and thank you so much Scotia!

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for performing at our wedding on the 23rd July! Everyone commented on how beautiful the music was.

Scotia Strings

Your music was so beautiful. I loved listening to you play the bridesmaids down the aisle while my Dad and I giggled at the entrance and listened to the music and the chirping of birds. It was a perfect moment.

Scotia Strings

Scotia Wedding Trio were absolutely fantastic! Lovely, lovely people and wonderful musicians, thank you very much! Thanks to the Hireaband team too - professional, friendly would absolutely recommend!

Hireaband got back to all queries in good time and were very helpful. The Scotia String Quarter were fantastic, playing everything we asked for (including learning new songs) and were very professional.
