You are welcome to be involved in choosing the music or we are equally happy if you leave it entirely up to us. Whatever you prefer is fine.


For a wedding ceremony many people prefer to choose the processional, the signing of the register music and the recessional.

Typically the music for a wedding would be as follows:

Prelude
Guests normally arrive 15 minutes before the ceremony when the quartet will play a mixture of light classical music.

Processional suggestions

Canon Pachelbel play
La Rejouissance Handel play
Spring Vivaldi play
Wedding March Wagner play
Trumpet Tune Purcell play
Arrival of the Queen of Sheba Handel play
Ode to Joy Beethoven  
Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring Bach play

Why hire the Romanza String Quartet?
The Romanza String Quartet is dedicated to help make your occasion memorable. We have had years of experience playing for many events and provide your event with a special ambience.

Do you attend rehearsals?
Normally we do not attend ceremony rehearsals. We arrive 15-30 minutes before our playing time and are experienced at timing the music. We arrange a cue for the processional music before the ceremony. Free unlimited consultation is available before the day.

Do you charge for travel?
Within the closer Napier/Hastings area we do not charge travel costs. Travel is charged for longer distances and for Taupo area events.

Do we need to meet in person?
Not necessarily. Details can be arranged by phone or email.
