“This stylish quartet provides beautiful music, adding classical glamour to any event.”

“The Quartet was FANTASTIC! They really knew what and when to play, they performed our chosen songs perfectly with great timing. And overall it was amazing and our guests loved them” 

Natalia Maksimova, Wedding in The Four Seasons Hotel, Hampshire

Vanity Strings have performed at several weddings and events at Chiddingstone Castle over the past few years.  Talented musicians with a varied and entertaining repertoire.  We have found them a joy to work with; reliable, punctual, flexible, fun, courteous and considerate.

Vanity Strings have a refreshingly youthful attitude, which appeals to couples getting married at Chiddingstone Castle and are a perfect complement to a joyful celebration of marriage.

We very much enjoy working with Valtie and her team and will continue to recommend them for work here.

“Amazing amazing amazing. Really made our day extra special. All the guests loved the music in the church.”

Dino Zeolla, Wedding in Woburn Sands, Buckinghamshire

Simply perfect. A lovely addition to a lovely day. The string quartet played everything that had been requested and performed amazingly well for our son and daughter-in-law’s wedding breakfast. Heartily recommended.

Stephen Marriot, Wedding in Turvey House, Bedfordshire

Vanity Strings were brilliant on our wedding day at The Slaughters Manor House in the Cotswolds! Valtie and the girls put together a great set for our pre-ceremony, ceremony and drinks reception music and our wedding party were all commenting on what a talented quartet they are. I loved the mix of TV and pop/rock songs which added a great modern twist to the day. Valtie was so friendly and made the organisation hassle-free so that we had nothing to worry about on the day. Couldn’t recommend Maestoso Strings enough!

On time, dressed appropriately, easy to contact and deal with in advance of the event, and most importantly we and our guests loved their music. Very professional.

Maddy Liew, Wedding in Dartmouth House, London

“I would like to thank you and Vanity Strings for providing such beautiful music for our wedding at Chiddingstone Castle on the 1st August. It made the ceremony absolutely perfect. The guests were hugely complementary of your performance and it was so fitting to have you as part of the afternoon tea on the lawn also.”

Edwina and Jason, Wedding in Chiddingstone Castle, Kent

“Vanity Strings are fantastic, they arrived at the Wedding Venue and set up their equipment without us even knowing that they had arrived. They played during our Wedding Ceremony and in a small private chapel sounded great. They are amazing musicians, exceptionally professional and lovely well presented young women, I can not recommend them with any higher regard and all of our guests commented on how outstanding they were, stop browsing other artists and book this act immediately, you will not be disappointed.”

Guy Andrews, Wedding, Wiltshire

“Thank you so much for your performances yesterday. Everyone enjoyed it as a splendid backdrop to a lovely afternoon. A number of my guests with some musical knowledge really appreciated your skill and ability and were excited by the sound you made together.”

Annabel Burn, Birthday Party, Queen’s House, London 

“We just wanted to thank you both so much for playing so perfectly at our wedding on 7th June 2014 at Chilston Park. It was wonderful to see you both there playing when we arrived and to see that you had been entertaining our guests. We also loved you playing at the beginning of our wedding breakfast, it created a great atmosphere.

Thank you and we hope to work with you again some time.”

Natalie and Richard, Wedding at Chilston Park, Kent

“Thank you all for your quartet’s excellent performance on Friday. The appearance, the attention to detail and the magnificent playing were just as I hoped. The bride and groom were very pleased.”

Bill Steele, Wedding at Old Royal Naval College, London

“We booked Vanity Strings duo for one of our major supporter events. They were wonderful and fitted into the occasion seamlessly, providing just the right atmosphere and helping to make the event such a success. They were friendly and professional to work with and we would be very happy to book them again. ”

Leonie Shaw, National Maritime Museum at Royal Museums Greenwich Annual Drinks Reception in Mandarin Oriental Hotel, London

“They played at my sister’s party at the Queen’s House, Greenwich. I enjoyed their wide and varied repertoire, wonderful energy and really tight playing in an echoey hall. I would recommend Vanity Strings to anybody, without hesitation.”

Mark Iliff, Birthday Party, Queen’s House, London

“I booked Vanity Strings very last-minute for a formal supper on advice from LMM. They were fantastic! They were friendly, flexible and their music was perfect for the occasion, a very talented group who would add sparkle to any event – will definitely book them again.”

Jamie Harle, The British Army Dinner, Norfolk

“I was at a wonderful party at the Queens House Greenwich which Vanity Strings played at in early March this year (2012.). Their sound is wonderful and ensemble really crisp and full of Brio. The cello in particular had a rich Tortelier like timbre. They also look as if they are really having fun, which avoids the whole show looking too serious. Their Bizet was also full of zippy energy.”

George Scott, Birthday Party, Queen’s House, London

“On behalf of Vossloh Kiepe UK and all of us at Reeves Green, I’d like to thank all the members of the quartet for your lovely performance at the our event at the Queen’s House last week. The three sets chosen perfectly matched the changing moods of the evening, and we particularly enjoyed your interpretation of Bohemian Rhapsody during dinner. I do hope we’ll be able to work together again in the future.”

Lisa, Vossloh Kiepe UK, Queen’s House, London

“Thank you so much for your wonderful performance yesterday and please pass on my thanks to the other members of Vanity Strings. We thoroughly enjoyed the music in both the church and at the Orangery and it certainly added to our day.”

James Brown, Wedding at Chiddingstone Castle, Kent

“We were delighted with the performance – please pass on our great appreciation. It was a wonderful evening.”
