I would just like to say a massive
thank-you for Saturday!

Sorry I got swept away and never got chance to thank you personally (or even meet you before-hand!).

Everyone thought you were fantastic and it really did add that something special to our day.

Many thanks and the best of luck for
the future.

Mel Socratous

We just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you and the rest of the Highgate String Quartet for your performance at our wedding at St James the Less on 25 August 2012.

We have received a number of comments both from our guests and the priest himself as to the lovely atmosphere that the quartet created for guests on arrival at the church and during the ceremony.

We eagerly await the DVD so that we can relive the day, which passed so quickly! We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending The Highgate String Quartet to any of our friends and family in the future.

Thanks and kindest regards

Mr & Mrs Haworth (Claire & Scott)
