Tarkine Strings performed the most beautiful set of music for our summer garden wedding. A mixture of classic and contemporary music was played by a trio including violin and guitar. They arrived early, set up effortlessly and were a pleasure to be around. Extremely professional and courteous. Communication and booking with Tarryn was without fault. We had so many of our guests comment on how fabulous they were. 10/10. Would highly recommend.

Tarkine Strings played at our wedding at St Johns Anglican Church in Launceston. The group really did justice to such a grand venue and all the guests commented on how fantastic they were at setting the mood, and then how powerful their playing was of Pachabel's Canon in D. They were easy to communicate with and worked to accommodate the special requests for songs, including the instruments included, which for us was piano and acoustic guitar. I can not speak highly enough about the group and how special it was to have them play at our wedding

Originally planned for May 2020, Ian and I had approached Michael and Tarryn from Tarkine Strings to provide live music for our Adelaide wedding. We presented our chosen list of unique love songs and all was on track for our amazing day — and then the pandemic struck. The rescheduling of our wedding turned most of our plans upside down. Despite everything, Tarkine Strings were so helpful every step of the way. As the covid situation worsened it became evident that, being from interstate, Michael and Tarryn's participation became increasingly unlikely. And then, Michael devised a solution. Rather than take the chance of questionable audio-visual quality of a live performance via Skype / Facetime, they would film their renditions of our songs. So beautiful and so personal. They were an amazing part of our special day

The Tarkine Strings played as a string quartet during our wedding ceremony and we were absolutely delighted at how beautifully they played and how easy they were to work with. They readily accepted our requests for Bach and Mozart as well as modern pieces by Coldplay. An absolute pleasure to hear them play and we were very grateful that they made our ceremony so memorable

Professional group of musicians, accommodated our specific song request for bridal march. If we were to get married again we would definitely hire them again!
