2016 has flown by for the London string quartet but it has been an amazing year of nearly 100 performances throughout London, England and abroad for Niche London String Quartet! Highlights included playing for HRH The Duchess of Cambridge and travelling to France to perform for one of Britain’s most popular newspapers at Euro 2016 in the same week of this Summer! Playing for more beautiful weddings than ever before with every single one a different mix of our modern wedding music and classical string quartet favourites has been a privilege. Also surprise engagement proposals in London, birthday parties, corporate launches, events and parties.
Top wedding songs for this year’s wedding ceremony entrance music seemed to be:
romantic ‘All of Me’ by John Legend,
painfully beautiful ‘I Giorni’ by Einaudi,
and of course the always wonderful and touching string quartet music ‘Pachelbel’s Canon’.
But of course we have had an amazing mix of song choices, one that particularly stood out for us was when the string quartet played for a bride and groom who first saw us supporting their favourite rock band at The Underworld in 2012 and then asked us to come play their favourite song ‘I Created’ for their wedding too!
Favourite ideas for the best wedding ceremony music exit includes:
Niche Quartet playing ‘Stand By Me’,
Pharrell William’s ‘Happy’,
classical Beatles favourite ‘All You Need is Love’
and of course Bruno Mars ‘Marry You’!
Looking ahead 2017 dates have already been booking up with wedding ceremony music and reception performances for the string quartet, trio and duo across London and the majority of Spring and Summer weekends have already been reserved – if you are wedding planning and would like the best quality London entertainment for your wedding day do enquire soon! We hate having to turn couples away.
Our next performances are at Asia House in Marylebone, Moor Park in Rickmansworth, and The Cafe Royal in Picadilly – Let’s see if we can be the busiest London String Quartet ever and play for over 100 weddings and events in 2017!
