Due to the current government restrictions to contain the spread of COVID19, Southdene Ltd are forced to temporarily suspend operations.

Please be assured that our team of outstanding musicians are on standby, and that we will be available to play at your wedding once the current measures have been relaxed.

We understand that this is an extremely stressful and uncertain time for all, if you wish to re-arrange your date, we can do so without any administration fees, and any pre-payments will be transferred to your new wedding date.

Due to these unprecedented circumstances, we will be waiving our standard contractual agreement of requesting full balance payment for cancellations less than 6 months before the event.

However, we will be replacing this with a nominal £50 cancellation fee per booked musician to support our longstanding artists, many of whom are unable to work during this crisis.

This fee will be payable when confirming your new date.

We wish you the best through these difficult times and look forward to performing again soon.

Southdene Strings

The Southdene String Quartet & Duo specialize in wedding music. With over 20 years experience in providing wedding music in Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and across the North of England, we can offer expert advice in planning your big day as well as providing high quality music for your wedding.

Our string quartet and string duo perform a huge repertoire, which we are constantly updating.

You can also commission a special request if the song or piece you require isn’t already on our repertoire list.


Current favourites include ‘Tale as Old as Time’ from Beauty & the Beast,  ‘100 Years’ by Christina Perri, ‘Theme’ from Game of Thrones and Ed Sheeran ‘Perfect’. We also love the classics such as ‘Canon’ by Pachelbel and Tchaikowsky’s ‘Walz’ from Sleeping Beauty.

Creating the Perfect Atmosphere

Live music is a brilliant way of creating the atmosphere you want for your wedding day.

Because we perform live, we can time the start and end of pieces during your ceremony so that it is tailored perfectly to your timings. You choose your music for the bride’s entrance, 3 pieces during signing the register and the bride and groom’s exit, so the whole ceremony is completely personal to you. We also play for up to 30 minutes before the ceremony to set the mood in the room as guests arrive.
