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!

We love adding new music to our repertoire! Especially the very latest songs and chart hits. At our latest performance Niche – The London String Quartet played for the 1500 guests at the KCL Summer Ball – it was a very energetic summer’s night! We took this as a great opportunity to premiere some of our latest new songs that have been added to our repertoire:

All Of Me – John Legend

Mr Brightside – The Killers

Fields of Gold – Eva Cassidy/Sting

Happy – Pharrell

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.

Spring Wedding Music 2014

There have been lots of lovely wedding performances for Niche London String Quartet in the countryside during April – we really enjoyed performing our brand new arrangement requests and wedding music: Hoppipolla by Sigur Ros and Mr Brightside by The Killers are now some of our firm favourite songs in our ever growing repertoire!

This April we have also taken new bookings for great events in the future! Niche London Quartet looks forward to visiting some fabulous venues like the Great Hall Chelsea, Caroline Gardens Chapel, Orleans House Richmond, Painshill Park, the Andez Hotel Liverpool St, the Belvedere Restaurant and more!

Niche String Quartet busy in London!

Niche London String Quartet has been so busy these past 3 months, not only playing for weddings, parties and the hugely exciting NHS Awards Ceremony (More on that below!) but also preparing for a big list of spring and summer booking by writing and rehearsing all the new music requests!

Niche London String Quartet Corporate Events

At the end of February Niche – The London String Quartet travelled to the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre to provide the London entertainment for the NHS Awards and the NHS Leadership Academy. For this evening the string quartet were providing our special amplified musical performance for corporate entertainment and were plugged into the ballroom room holding the champagne reception and the gorgeous star filled hall for dinner so the whole venue was filled with music and an atmosphere of anticipation from the very beginning.  

As more than 500 guests filled the venue they stopped to take photos with Niche London Quartet and also to make some special requests. The mood was electric and Niche Quartet kept the energy going all evening with performances of the latest chart hits and classical favourites. Just before the awards ceremony was due to start, as the string quartet’s big finish, Niche played “We are the Champions” and the excited guests filled the room with applause which set the scene perfectly for the award winners to be announced!

These past months we have added lots of new modern wedding songs like Bruno Mars ‘Just The Way You Are’, which was written as the special request for Niche String Trio’s performance at Warren House in March. Niche played for 2.5hrs at the intimate and lovely wedding reception on a beautiful sunny day in Surrey. The children and guests were thrilled with the bride’s choice of mainly modern wedding songs with some classical favourites mixed in. By the end of the wedding reception the guests and all the children were dancing away and making requests for their favourite songs to be played. A throughly enjoyable performance for us.

London String Quartet play Beautiful Wedding Music

This winter Niche – The London String Quartet have been playing for lovely winter wedding music in some of London’s finest wedding venues! Here are 2 more examples of London Love with Niche Quartet!

Niche London Quartet aptly were playing in the gorgeous Music Room at The Ritz for Dave and James’ wedding reception and wedding breakfast. As the newly weds entered the room to cheers we played the chorus of All You Need is Love, then followed by the couple’s special arrangement request, the super up-tempo Bad Romance! For the rest of the evening we thrilled guests with our repertoire of chart hits and favourite wedding music numbers.

Huge congratulations to Dave and James on their beautiful and joyous wedding!

Our latest wedding music performance was in the stunning One Whitehall Place – Niche London String Quartet serenaded Sue, Sanjay and their guests during their wedding ceremony and wedding reception with classical wedding favourites such as Pachelbel’s Canon mixed with modern greats such as ‘I’m Yours’, ‘All You Need is Love’ and ‘Viva La Vida’!  Perfect up-tempo and happy wedding music choices from our repertoire list to capture the fun of their big day!
