Also in July and August Niche String Quartet had a busy time providing musical entertainment at many amazing top London venues. Some highlights include: a performance at The Savoy for summer corporate entertainment, Pembroke Lodge for wedding music in The Russell Suite, The Royal Exchange for wedding reception music, The Asylum where the all modern wedding ceremony music filled the chapel and dinner music filling the grand hall at Brocket Hall for a wedding filled with a guest-list made up Britain’s most famous horse riders!

Gorgeous London String Quartet Weddings

June 2014 outdid May as our busiest month yet, then August took over…now we are looking forward to our busiest ever month in September!!

Niche – The London String Quartet, String Trio and Duo have all been out and about across London visiting the most beautiful wedding venues this summer!

One of the wedding highlights of June was visiting Pembroke Lodge in Richmond to provide string quartet wedding ceremony and reception music. The couple chose a great mix of traditional and modern for their wedding ceremony music:

Bride’s Entrance: Pachelbel’s Canon
Signing of the register: I Giorni, Fly me to the Moon, It Must be love
The big exit as Mr and Mrs: All You Need is Love

and afterward during the reception guests danced and clapping for us as we played modern quartet music by the Beatles, Queen, and one of our newest arrangements requests for Mr Brightside.

Another excellent June wedding for the London String Quartet was at the Dorchester Penthouse where we provided a performance of Fields of Gold for the processional as the bride entered and once again the lovely All You Need is Love for the Recessional.

We also visited gorgeous top venues like Chandos House near Regents Street, Painshill Park in Surrey and Temple, Holland Park and more. Soon we will do another update with some of our favourite July Weddings and venues!

The newly graduated guests loved the songs and came over to have photos taken with us throughout the night! We look forward to adding more great songs over the next week weeks by Lana Del Ray and Coldplay.

Super busy May Events Musicians!

May has been so incredibly busy – just this week Niche – The London String Quartet have been travelling all across London to provide entertainment for corporate parties, champagne receptions, and weddings! We have also been putting together all the special requests of music for our June bookings.

Mid-week Niche Quartet travelled to the city to provide musical entertainment for ITG’s office party. Niche entertained guests throughout the 3hr party with a mix of classical and popular music. Everybody was having a great time!

We also went to The Chelsea Flower Show to provide music for corporate events at the stunning Great Hall the Royal Hospital Chelsea. We provided an energy filled performance of classical music for the first half of the champagne reception to welcome guests to the luxurious surroundings. Then for the 2nd half we performed a mixture of jazz, film music and of course our favourite chart hits as guests enjoyed canapés. Once again lovely guests took the time to come and thank us and say how much they enjoyed the music as they headed home after a great evening!

Last weekend Niche London Quartet visited the gorgeous countryside wedding venue Gaynes Park Barns to play wedding music for a wedding reception with a view. The bride had provided us with the list of songs she wanted to hear from our repertoire list and we went to work thrilling and entertaining her guests in the sunshine. We finished with our Queen Medley and some lovely guests came over to say they thought we were fabulous and amazing :)

We have been having a great time providing entertainment for corporate events and weddings across London venues and are looking forward to all the wedding music and event entertainment we are providing in June – our busiest month yet!
