Hire a string quartet for a most elegant affair
Wondering what a string quartet is? Apart from creating an ambience and sophistication that’s second-to-none, a traditional string quartet is made up of a violin, viola, cello and double bass. However, at Hey Jack, we can customise your experience to fit your preferences.
It’s your wedding day, so you must treat yourself to an incredible musical experience that you and your guests will remember forever. You can live your Romeo and Juliet moment with a solo harpist that’s sure to bring a tear to the eye or go for a complete string ensemble that will make your grand entrance a showstopper as they elevate and soften the mood when the timing is just right.

A live string quartet gives you control of your ceremony.
A live string quartet gives you control over your ceremony rather than playing a music recording that can’t be altered. You and your string ensemble can plan how the day will unfold. Together you can decide how to adjust their speed to match your walking style, when to seamlessly fade in and out as required, and put together a playlist of the songs you love!
Wedding string quartets also make an incredible starting performance before moving on to your band acts or DJs. Add a talented vocal soloist to the group (which we can easily arrange for you), and you’ve got yourself the ultimate introduction to your ceremony and festivities. Imagine setting the scene for your big day with a glorious string quartet accompanied by one of our highly sought-after wedding vocalists, crooning you with the voice of an angel.
Curate a playlist, hire a string quartet
With Hey Jack, you can curate your wedding playlist from beginning to end. We recommend hiring a string quartet to kickstart your wedding ceremony. This means being there to welcome your guests, warming up the cocktail and canape hour, and walking the beautiful bride down the aisle. You can handpick each song that’s meaningful to you or work with the quartet to understand your taste, so they can pick some breathtaking tunes that will suit your style. You can choose precisely when you’d like the string quartet to play each song, or let them surprise you throughout the ceremony!

Melbourne’s best string quartets, fresh from the symphony to you!
At Hey Jack, we don’t settle for mediocre entertainment or cookie-cutter weddings. We’re here to ensure that your wedding makes a big impact on you and your guests. And if that means dragging some of Melbourne’s finest string players from the symphony to you, then so be it! We can offer you a custom experience from end to end. We can make it work, whether that’s a solo instrumentalist or full ensemble. We also recommend pairing your strings with an incredible wedding band that can take your sophisticated soiree up a couple of notches once the champagne is well and indeed flowing. We’ve got fantastic wedding bands that will have your guests up and dancing all night long.
Maintain the old-worldly charm of your string quartet by following it up with a big band or jazz ensemble. Or, why not surprise your guests (whether they like it or not) with a roaming band of saxophone and bongo players who want to get up close and personal with the audience. By bundling your entertainment (we also provide wedding photography and videography) into one, your wedding will be cost-effective and we’ll even throw in some lovely little perks, like factoring in travel time and other miscellaneous costs that some string quartet wedding entertainers charge extra for.
How to find the perfect string quartet for your wedding
