Tech Week London 2018

Mordern String Quartet London Tech Week - Niche London

London Tech Week took place on the 11th-17th June in 2018 celebrating tech through the power of events. Naturally the most exciting tech brands turned to Niche London for the right modern string quartet music to make their events unforgettable! Our first Tech Week event was to play as trio, amplified through the in-house AV, to open the London Tech Week Gala Dinner in aid of The Princes Trust in the grounds of the Tower of London. We were honoured to be hired to be the London string musicians to provide the entertainment for this important charitable event and create the perfect atmosphere for an unforgettable celebration. 

The next day Niche String Quartet played modern music as entertainment for guests at the TechXLR8 awards ceremony corporate event at Gibson Hall, a glittering events venue in the heart of the City of London. Guests enjoyed our modern music throughout dinner and as a warm up for the awards ceremony to begin. Earlier that same day our all female string quartet had already been a very modern string quartet in London, playing for a surprise performance of ‘Simply the Best’ at Kings Cross as part of an elaborate surprise goodbye gift to a top event’s company C.E.O!

Our final Tech Week performance meant Niche Quartet were up bright and early dressed smart casual to welcome guests with fabulous modern music (chosen by the director from our extensive song repertoire) at the AI Summit at Excel London. Guests were filming us as we played and our music was the perfect way to get them excited for a day of exciting new tech filled exhibition. When we had finished the director enjoyed it so much he said he wished he had hired us for another hour!

Wedding String Quartet for the manager of the London Symphony Orchestra

Our latest Bride to chose Niche London to be the string quartet for her wedding day was the manager of the London Symphony Orchestra – a lady who truly knows good music when she hears it!! It was a pleasure to specially arrange her favourite piece ‘Marry Me’ from classic film ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’ for her walk down the aisle (our rendition brought tears to her eyes for the perfect unforgettable entrance to her wedding ceremony). We then helped the celebrations begin by playing our wedding string quartet version of The Beatles  ‘All Your Need is Love’ for the happy newlyweds exit down the wedding aisle as the new Mr&Mrs S! 

For the wedding reception at perfect rustic wedding venue Tewin Bury Farm we played from our range of up-beat modern string quartet music including songs from Ed Sheeran, Adele, Jason Mraz, Ellie Goulding, Bruno Mars and Beyonce to name just a few! Guests were thrilled with our wedding string quartet music, filming their favourite songs and dancing with champagne in hand.

Niche London String Quartet also provided the perfect event music for a London film premiere, more beautiful and utterly unique wedding ceremonies, arranged music for a huge charity event in a London Palace and a remembrance service in March but that will have to wait for our next exciting event filled blog post!

This Summer has been completely amazing! Niche London String Quartet and String Trio have played wedding music at OVER 50 different wedding venues, and also provided entertainment for birthday parties, corporate events, summer parties, award ceremonies and a very special surprise engagement proposal!

We have had the pleasure of playing lots of very in love couples down and back up the wedding ceremony aisle playing traditional classical music like Pachelbel’s Canon in D or I Giorni has been a favourite. The String Quartet and trio have also arranged and learned lots of new music to make our Niche Couples’ wedding ceremony a completely personal moment that will never be forgotten. Some of our newest modern string quartet wedding songs include Somebody To Love by Queen and Cheerleader by Omi!

Multiple wedding music performances for Niche London String Quartet and Trio took place at some of our favourite wedding venues, Hedsor House, Kew Gardens (one on the hottest day of the year!!), Pembroke Lodge, The Bingham. Richmond wedding venues proving very popular as always! We got to visit some new wedding venues for the first time too, playing at Searcys at The Gherkin, Waddesdon Manor Dairy, Ham Yard Hotel and Aynhoe Park (There is SO much to say about the amazing Aynhoe Park Wedding we will have to save it for it’s own post!)

Niche London String Quartet Wedding Music Reviews

Some of Niche Quartet’s lovely July brides wrote to us on our Instagram page – make sure you follow us too for wedding music ideas!

London Wedding String Quartet Music

Being the top London wedding string quartet means we have the best range of music for wedding ceremonies! We have classical wedding music favourites such as the famous Pachelbel’s Canon or traditional Bridal Chorus or brilliant modern wedding songs arranged for string quartet such as At Last, A Thousand Years, and All of Me by John Legend. 

Of course if you want ultimate personalisation of your wedding ceremony, and you can’t find that one song on our list of over 10 hours of potential wedding music, you can have Niche London wedding String Quartet arrange your dream song to walk down the aisle to! This wedding string quartet for hire love making the once in a lifetime moment as your walk down the aisle perfect.

Niche Quartet play for surprise engagement then wedding ceremony:

Last year Joe commissioned Niche Quartet’s violin duo to play for his surprise engagement proposal to Nancy and play her favourite Kate Rusby song  ‘Elfin Knight’. The proposal was a great success and last weekend Joe hired Niche Quartet again to be their wedding musicians! The Mr and Mrs to be chose a beautiful wedding venue the string quartet plays in often – Caroline Garden’s Chapel, The Asylum in Peckham! We performed Elfin Knight once again as Nancy walked down the aisle and many a glistening eye could be seen in the congregation as Nancy skipped into Joe’s arms. 

For the end of the ceremony Joe and Nancy had asked if we could arrange and learn upbeat Marie’s Wedding for their exit down the aisle together – the perfect London wedding music to match the rustic and vintage style wedding decor and styling. 

We feel so lucky to have been a big part of their story – engagement to wedding with Niche London Wedding String Quartet!

2016 for The London String Quartet!

2016 has flown by 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!
