In the middle of May Niche – The London String Quartet played at the beautiful wedding venue of Addington Palace (where earlier this year they appointed us as their ‘recommended wedding string quartet’ for their venue – fantastic news!)
Addington Palace is one of the grandest South London venues for weddings. It dates back to the 18th century and years ago the Palace saw generations of musicians trained there when the building housed the Royal School of Church Music. We played our wedding music favourites whilst the guests took their seats in the Grand Chapel anticipating the cue for the bride’s arrival.
She had requested us to do one of our special arrangement for her entrance – F.E.A.R. by Ian Brown. What a great and emotive song! A truly original choice for a unique bride. We also performed our other requested arrangements during the signing of the register which were the atmospheric ‘Perfect Stranger’ – by Katy B & Magnetic Man, followed by the timeless favourite The Verve’s ‘Bittersweet Symphony’.
After playing for the wedding ceremony Niche London Quartet moved into the entrance to The Great Hall and played our repertoire of pop whilst the guests enjoyed drinks, canopés and mingling with the happy couple, and with the lovely weather the doors were opened to out onto the South Lawn. Niche Quartet finished with What a Wonderful World as the jovial guests moved on to enjoy their wedding breakfast. A beautiful wedding ceremony and another enjoyable and successful event for the Niche Quartet!
