String Musicians Australia has performed for over 500 weddings Australia-wide and are registered with the Australian Government as trusted award-winning musicians and recording artists.

We recommend hiring our wedding music bands that comprises of string quartet providing the richest harmonies. We also offer trio, duo and solo options with a single wedding violinist.

To setup, we arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of your booking time.

We suggest booking the string quartet 15 to 20 minutes before the start of the ceremony, so we can perform while guests arrive.

When selecting a booking end time, please consider possible bridal party delays and long celebrant speeches. We don’t want to leave midway due to another performance booking.

If your wedding ceremony concludes before the end of the booking time, we’ll continue to perform during post-ceremony photos & drinks.

We perform during these times:

  • As guests arrive (as many songs as possible)
  • Processional: bridal party arrives (one song)
  • Signing of the Register (two songs)
  • Recessional: bridal party leaves (one song)
  • As guests exit (as many songs as possible)

Optional Free Extra: We can perform soft, slow background music during the entire ceremony. If you'd like this option to be included, please specify this in the comment box when filling out our booking form. Please ensure the celebrant is micked and informed prior to the ceremony.

Clients may select four feature songs to be performed.

  • One song for the processional
  • Two songs for the signing of the register
  • One song for the recessional

Up to three special song requests can be requested at no additional charge. Alternatively, songs may be selected from over 200 of our recordings and from our popular shortlist below.

We perform a variety of classical music while guests arrive & exit.

 Want to hire the perfect wedding music bands? just let us know.

We require one armless chair per musician to be setup where you’d like us to perform. We also require adequate light to read our music and 2.5m x 2m of performance space for a string quartet. A string trio requires 2m x 2m, a string duo requires 1.5m x 1.5m and a solo violin, cello or viola requires 1.5m x 1m. If the function is outdoors, we require protection from wind, rain and direct sunlight, as our instruments are extremely valuable.
