The Cellists are a sophisticated alternative to a string quartet
Founded in 2008 by Cecily Smith and Andrew Nesbitt, The Cellists is a professional cello duo company providing high quality string music for weddings and events, as a sophisticated alternative to having a string quartet.
We work with a group of talented professional cellists around the UK and Ireland to give the best possible performances at special events. Our cellists perform at the highest level, playing with orchestras such as the Halle, Ulster and RTE Orchestras; providing session music; and performing in chamber music and solo settings around the UK.
Our aim is to make having music at your wedding as easy as possible. Andrew will guide you through the booking process, and answer any questions you might have. We are happy to play any specific requests, and if we don’t already have them on our music list, we can have them specially written for us to play. We have made recordings of the songs we are most asked for and these will give you an idea of how we will sound on the big day.
Let us give you the same unforgettable performance!
“We loved having you play at our wedding and reception, the music was so beautiful and lots of our guests commented on how nice it was.”Lucy & Jo
