Introducing Beau String Quartet

Updated: Apr 3, 2023

Looking to add something a little bit extra special to your wedding? Imagine your big entrance accompanied by a luscious string arrangement of your favourite song. Our string quartet really adds to the magic of your moments!


A professional, highly experienced Wedding String Quartet based in South Wales, including two violins, viola and cello, and creating bespoke arrangements to for ceremony music, bridal entry music, romantic background music and more!


Introducing our players


Angharad Thomas is our first violinist, the one with the most dashing smile and the tallest of our bunch! Angharad (or Haz, as we lovingly call her) studied at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and has played in many highly esteemed orchestras, including an annual tour playing in the live orchestra adaptation of Love Actually!


Laura Benjamin (that's me!) is our second violinist, and if you're on this site you probably know a fair bit about her already, but to summarise, Laura has been a professional wedding musician since 2016, after graduating from Cardiff University, during which time she played violin in Cardiff University Symphony Orchestra!


The gorgeous Viola parts are played by our Heather Hawken, who also studied at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and has a huge range of experience from playing in wedding string quartets to being part of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and London Concert Orchestra. She also has a YouTube channel all about her life as a professional freelance musician which you can check out here

Isobel Soper (our Izzy!) is in charge of those gorgeous bass notes, and is by far the coolest member of the quartet (don't tell her we told you that though!). Izzy is currently studying in Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and is already taking the cello world by storm. She's highly in demand as a wedding cellist in her own right as well as being part of Beau String Quartet.


In general, we all absolutely love what we do, being wedding musicians is the best job in the world and something we don't ever take for granted. We're all friendly, approachable and will do anything and everything to help make your day absolutely perfect!

We pride ourselves on having an extensive repertoire, from classical music to string arrangements of pop songs, to film music and more.

If there's a special song you want to walk down the aisle to that's not already on the list, we'll make it happen, just let us know!
