Wedding music

From a Wedding Breakfast to a drinks reception, Troika Strings will provide a musical backdrop for your wedding.

The most important part of the day is of course the wedding ceremony, where you will probably want to choose music for:

  • the Bride's entrance
  • the signing of the register
  • the Bride and Groom's exit

Tastes vary; some people love popular while others are more traditional, but pieces such as Handel's Entrance of the Queen of Sheba or Elgar's Salut d'Amour remain perenial favourites.

You can listen to recordings of popular wedding pieces on the previous page (the traditional pieces are tracks 9 to 18).

Although a String Quartet is the most popular group for weddings, a String Trio or even Duo is an alternative. A smaller group will not sound as loud as a larger one, so if you are planning an outdoor service, you might want to seat the musicians by a wall (which will reflect the sound). Also remember that the group will need shelter from the sun (or rain!).


Thank you for doing such a wonderful job at our wedding. All the guests commented on how lovely it was.

Many thanks,

Ben & Vicki
