Astral Strings were one of the highlights of our ceremony. We took the option of strings together with a vocalist so that we could have a combination of instrumental pieces and singing - which worked beautifully.
Eileen was very helpful in the preparation of the music selection, fully flexible but equally offering some guidance and tips for what would be suitable at different points of the ceremony which really helped us to balance the ceremony while also reflecting the atmosphere we wanted to create.
All our guest complimented the music.
We were very happy to have selected Astral Strings - Thank you!!

Well, where to start... From the first enquiry email, Eileen and the ladies were so professional and responsive.

Eileen called me once we had booked them and went through everything with us.

From modern to classical, there wasn't one song on our list that was an issue.

On the wedding day, the ladies arrived at our venue and seamlessly set up and began playing for our guests.

The music was MAGICAL ?? I don't know if one normally applauds the ceremony music but it was so beautiful that we felt compelled to.... at one stage I almost forgot that I was being married and felt like I was at the most beautiful strings concerto... or in an episode of Bridgerton!

Everyone at our wedding commented on how beautiful the ceremony and drinks reception music was.

I was lucky enough that some of my guests created videos and captures some snippets of the beautiful music. I will cherish those videos ????

If you're contemplating having a string quartet for your special day, Astral Strings will not disappoint!

Thanks so much again Eileen and team, you made our day so magical ????

Honestly the best decision we made for our wedding! We had so many compliments on the music, it was just perfect. Eileen and the group were so responsive, and learned a couple of pieces of music we had our heart set on. We are only sorry we didn't get to hear more of the reception music!! Highly highly recommend Astral Strings

Eileen and the rest of Astra String Quartet were an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. They were very communicative; very organised and clear; their music was beautiful; they even managed to cope with our priest going a bit rogue with the order of service. All in all, we were very impressed and so glad to have them as part of our special day!

Creating a Wonderful Atmosphere
Married on 18th Aug 2017
Astral String were friendly and easy to deal with in the build up to our wedding. They made everything stress free and straightforward, and nothing was too much. Our ceremony was small and intimate and the music created the perfect atmosphere. We felt that the music was a great investment as it gave an air of sophistication and warmth before and during the ceremony. Thank you Astral String for adding to our perfect day.

What can I say about Astral Strings, other than the ladies were absolutely amazing. The music on the day in the church as just stunning and the vocals were amazing! Eileen was very helpful suggesting different sings and music pieces. All the guests commented on the music and mentioned that it created such a beautiful atmosphere in the church. If you are thinking about booking this group...GO FOR IT!!!! Thank you so so much! Ciara and Justin :)

We wanted a quartet which would play string versions of our favourite contemporary songs.
Astral Strings were a pleasure to deal with. They helped us to tailor a great programme of music. They were a pleasure to deal with. Most importantly, the performance was excellent, and perfectly set the tone for our big day.

"I wanted to drop you a line to say how truly grateful both myself and Rob are that you and you're talented accomplices were involved in our big day. The music was pure perfection and stirred the souls of all who joined us to witness our marriage. It served to set the a beautiful tone for the entire ceremony from that emotional moment I set foot in the church alongside my dad, to leaving it as a wife.
We were flooded with compliments throughout the day as a result, and I was so pleased to hear that so many of our guests let it be known personally to you, and indeed the choir in The Church of the Assumption in Castledermot, that they were so moved by what they heard.
I don't know what else to say except thank you for everything. Engaging with individuals with such levels of professionalism in the run up to our wedding was an absolute pleasure and having confidence in the fact that all was in hand with the music was a huge relief, most particularly when you were playing alongside our very nervous local choir for the first time.
We were thrilled with everything and I have already recommended Astral to all of my friends who are getting set to tie the knot with great confidence."
