" The Akina Quartet are professional, reliable and clearly established musicians. They made a tremendous contribution to our wedding day at Wokingham Town Hall in April this year. They have a varied repertoire and were able to play the music that we love to an exceptional standard. I have no reservations in recommending them to anyone who is looking for a great professional string quartet to enhance their wedding or event. Many thanks!"

We just wanted to say thank you so much for performing at our wedding on July 3rd. I had arranged this as a complete surprise for my wife so for her this was even more special. You really made our day so much more special and all of our guests commented on how beautiful the string quartet was. Please pass our thanks on to all the girls. I hope everything was ok for you on the day and you encountered no difficulties.
I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone in the future, you were all amazing.
Thank you so much again."

"Everyone said how nice it was to listen to your music. It fitted in so well with what we wanted and the venue. Once again thank you so much for helping to make it such a special day."

"The Akina String Quartet played really beautifully during our wedding reception and we are so grateful to them for helping to create such a lovely atmosphere for our guests. They are skilled musicians who play a wide range of music and also really helped us in picking the sort of music that would work well for our wedding day. While the photographer did his thing, the quartet moved to the room next to the balcony so that all the guests could continue listening to them play; these little thoughtful things really helped to make our wedding day so special. The quartet arrived well on time and were prompt and professional. I would warmly recommend them to anyone thinking of having a string quartet at any event."

"Akina Strings accompanied Aliquando's performance of the Saint-Saens "Christmas Oratorio" and Patrick Hawes' "Song of Songs" in Henley -on-Thames on the 24th November 2012
I Found them to be well prepared, very responsive and a pleasure to work with-their professional approach lifted the performance to another level."

"We had the pleasure of listening to the Akina String Quartet at a charitable street party we held in summer 2012 in honour of all children and adults who suffer with Rett Syndrome. The Akina String Quartet provided an enchanting variety of classical music enjoyed by the neighbourhood, young and old. We wholeheartedly thank the Akina String Quartet for their time and support towards a great cause!"

"Thank you for being so great for our wedding yesterday ladies! All of our guests loved the mix of music, I especially loved the show music you played and so did all my actor friends, and Dave and I really appreciated you being able to find 'Bring Me Sunshine' for the bride and groom's exit! You added a touch of elegance and fun to our special day. "

We wanted to say thankyou very much to you for playing, you guys sounded great. We didn't hear too much after the introductions of the pieces once the ceremony had started (having our minds on other things..), but it still sounded great and made for a really nice ambience. I thought that the music that you played beforehand was lovely, I really enjoyed it and it helped me to relax a little whilst waiting for my bride!
I will certainly recommend you to anyone who requires a string quartet.
Thank you for the beautiful music at the wedding. We really enjoyed the performance as did our guests. It was the perfect fit for Hedsor!
Paul, Groom Hedsor House
