"One year ago today, Wesley and the girls played at our wedding reception! Today, we are in Paris celebrating our anniversary and reminiscing about our wonderful wedding day. Bridge Strings helped make that day absolutely perfect. They played from the arrival of our guests, through Leanne arriving, signing the register and us walking out. They then played for us and our guests prior to the wedding breakfast. We had many comments from our guests about how beautiful the music was and we couldn’t agree more. They helped make the atmosphere of our day just perfect. We wouldn’t hesitate for a second in recommending Bridge Strings. We both thank you massively as it simply wouldn’t have been the same without you there!"
Jonathan & Elaine
Bryngarw House, Bridgend
"These guys were nothing short of phenomenal! They played solidly for 2 and a half hours and every song was perfect! They made the atmosphere what it was. Everyone of our guests commented on them and said how great they were. Wesley contacted us several times to ensure they made our day perfect, and boy did they! Honestly can’t recommend Bridge Strings enough. Thoroughly nice people, professional and super talented. Thank you guys, you were everything we expected and more."
Olivia & Tom
Ashbarton Estate, Devon
"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the absolutely incredible job you guys did at the wedding. When I walked down the aisle the music made it feel like a dream! Being willing to accompany my sister and Doug meant the world to me, it allowed a bit of musical theatre (my first love!) into the proceedings and was something I've been dreaming of for years - far longer than I've been engaged! The snippets I heard while taking photos were amazing, just hearing The Greatest Showman put a smile on my face. The music was stunning, but what was also apparent and mentioned by anyone who spoke to you was what incredibly lovely people you are."
Chelsi & Jack
Lakeside Venue, Bridgend
"Thank you guys so much for playing at our wedding and for helping make it such a special day. We had so many wonderful comments about you all, everyone was so impressed! We kind of want to get remarried just so we can book you again. We can't recommend you highly enough."
Amy & Rob
Bryngarw House, Bridgend
"SIMPLY AMAZING! From being a little girl, you plan your wedding to be your kind of perfect. In my case I wanted to walk and dance down the aisle to the best strings possible and these guys absolutely blew me away. Nothing was too much for them, no song too complex and everything I asked for came true. This gentleman and his family are simply the nicest people you'll ever come to meet, If you're looking for the perfect touch to your occasion this string trio are it! From one very happy bride. Thank you for making my wishes come true and I wish you all the very best!"

"Thank you so much for bringing our ceremony to life with your beautiful melodies! Wesley and his daughters were a joy, one of the best suppliers on our big day - accommodating, friendly, professional and easy to work with. Wesley had no hesitation in speaking with our organist to ensure some beautiful arrangements of strings and organ in the chapel with some beautiful classical music and hymns. Then immediately after the ceremony they effortlessly rearranged themselves to the reception area to add a little more upbeat music to our champagne reception. Everyone commented on how good the music was and (as the groom) it was one of the elements I think I'll remember for the longest whilst my bride gave me a 30 minute wait at the altar! wouldn't hesitate to work with Wesley again or recommend to anyone in need of a strings arrangement"

"We would 100% recommend booking Bridge Strings. Such a lovely family of musicians, such polite and genuinely lovely people, it was a joy to have them share our special day and it's clear they love their work and it's not just about making money but making people feel individual. Many guests commented how lovely it was to have live music and how talented you all are. Bridge Strings were so accommodating of our requests, from booking them at the wedding fayre to delivering outstanding music on our wedding day, their communication was excellent. They even made an arrangement for us which wasn't on their repertoire.

Bridge Strings is a family trio from Wales with a desire to share the unique beauty of string music. The members of Bridge Strings are: Wesley on violin and his two daughters Rhianwen on viola and Naomi on violin.
After many years performing in a wide range of venues, from castles, churches, cathedrals, town halls, theatres and concert halls, the family members established Bridge Strings in 2017, with a single passion:
Why did we choose a bridge as our logo and our name?
We thought long and hard and decided that a bridge represents the concept of beauty in a brilliant way.
We love beautiful things. Who doesn't? Beautiful(ness) is important to everyone. In the same way 'beautiful' is important to us. Because...
In Bridge Strings we have a single passion, a single goal: for you to Experience Beautiful music.
So how is it that we see a bridge as beautiful? It's because a bridge implies change. Think of it like taking a bridge to a new destination. We all want the destination to be better than where we set out from. We dream that the grass is greener on the other side, but unless we take the bridge we'll never know. A bridge signifies the change as we embark on life's journey to something more beautiful.
The bridge is at the heart of our instruments, and at the centre of the bridge is a heart. It's beautiful. It's symbolic of change. It's symbolic of a journey - the bridge to beautiful.
