Arta String Quartet – Wedding String Quartet Glasgow Edinburgh Scotland

Arta String Quartet



Since 2008, we've had an absolute blast playing at weddings and other fabulous live events across Scotland. Now firmly established as Scotland's leading professional string group, we perform mostly in the central belt (mainly in and around Glasgow & Edinburgh). Classically-trained but specialising in modern pop covers, we perform exciting, atmospheric and memorable live music, guaranteed to take your special day to the next level.


When is your big day?

Arta Quartet played at our wedding and they were incredible. So many people commented on how much they loved the songs and how well they played them. I would definitely recommend booking them for both the ceremony and reception - they can play such a wide variety of songs! Thanks for making our day so special. Naomi Handley 2019

Arta String Quartet played at our wedding ceremony and drinks reception in May of this year! They were absolutely fantastic on the day and so many of our guests commented on them! I really canโ€™t recommend the band enough - they really brought the whole tone of the day to another level! Thanks again! Cara Wilkie 2019

Hi everyone, just checking in with a quick Covid update!

We're rescheduling weddings for free and have successfully done this for 110 of our lovely clients already.

Good news - in light of recent updates, if your wedding is on or after the 26/04/21, it's likely that you'll be in level 3 or below, meaning you can have 20 people attending your wedding. Your suppliers all count towards this. In order to achieve a higher limit (50) your wedding area would need to return to level 0, which seems unlikely until late summer onwards.

Partly for this reason we're encouraging new clients (even for dates in late 2021) to start your booking with a String Trio and upgrade to a String Quartet nearer the time when your guest limits (if any) are confirmed, as it's easier (and nicer!) to add a player rather than losing a player.

If your wedding is cancelled due to Covid, we will of course refund you. Both this year and next year are already looking very busy so we'd recommend booking as soon as possible, especially if your wedding is during peak summer months.

Please also note that as string players, luckily we aren't subject to the restrictions that wind players are, where 'blown-into' instruments are currently not allowed at weddings. Also as an acoustic group, we can easily limit our decibel level unlike amplified groups (if needed we can even 'mute' our instruments to an even lower level).

We're looking forward to playing for you all soon :)
