A Midlands-based string quartet and trio, Fortune Strings works with some of the finest string players in the region.
We are the perfect accompaniment to weddings and events - we pride ourselves on adding that extra sparkle and atmosphere. Fortune Strings offers ensembles to suit any sized event (we have our own PA system, so we can be heard above the chatter of guests) - our most popular being Fortune Quartet. We play for wedding ceremonies, drinks receptions and wedding breakfasts, as well as providing background music for corporate or charity events.
Our extensive repertoire includes music from Bach to Coldplay and Mozart to Adele.
Would highly recommend. Played our wedding ceremony - did a wonderful job. Also very professional to deal with, quick replies to emails, and very accommodating with our choices of music. Thank you!
We had the pleasure of having fortune strings play at our wedding yesterday at Newton house barns, they are seriously talented musicians and so professional to deal with. We chose a modern selection of music for the aisle walk etc and then left the rest to Sarah & co for the drinks reception, all I can say is WOW just fantastic, we really cannot reccomend highly enough.

Fortune Strings played at our wedding last weekend and were great. Sarah was a pleasure to deal with through the planning process, always available for a chat and eager to help make our day personal and special. On the day, despite some dodgy weather, the players tried their best to support our wish and play outside where they could. They played beautifully and really added to the occasion. i would definitely recommend them to others. More...

Fortune Strings played at our wedding and were absolutely amazing! We chose some unconventional music and nothing was too much trouble for them, including getting our Stone Roses piece written for strings. Highly reccommend these guys for any special occasion More...
We used Fortune Strings Quartet for our wedding on the 12th May 2018 at Newton House Barns. They have a huge list of music for you to select from and Sarah, who we dealt with, was really quick to respond to all e-mails. She also helped with the selection of the music – outside of the 3 tunes we wanted for the ceremony we let them play what they wanted. The quality of the musicians was first rate, they were really friendly and they arrived in plenty of time. They really help make the day and we are so pleased we used them. From a cost perspective they seem pretty reasonable (not the cheapest, nor the most expensive) but, to be honest, our decision was made by the quick response, the breadth of music and the clear pricing for packages. All in all very happy and would definitely recommend. Thanks you Fortune Strings! More...
