    Rachel and the Leos Strings are absolutely amazing. I chose them after hearing Kissing You on their website. From the moment I first made contact, Rachel was a pleasure to deal with. On the day the music they played was perfect and went perfectly with the wedding theme, everyone commented how good they were. The new Mrs Robinson and my new father in law especially loved them, major brownie points for me. I asked them if they could play Alice's Theme from Alice in Wonderland and it was perfect, I can't thank them enough.

    Leos strings were fantastic! They played beautiful music as the bride arrived at the wedding and throughout our signing of the register. They really helped to add to the atmosphere of our wedding day and many guests have commented about how fantastic they were during the drinks reception. They played a really good mixture of classical and modern pieces excellently and I'd highly recommend them!

    Hi Rachel, just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our wedding amazing! All our guests commented on how beautiful the duo sounded, you helped make our day elegant, and special. We loved the eclectic mix of modern and classical, and we had your CD playing throughout our wedding breakfast also, couldn't recommend you highly enough.
