Niche Wedding Music in London

Niche London String Quartet played for a wonderful ceremony and champagne reception in the heart of Mayfair last weekend. We really enjoyed the decor, atmosphere and grandeur of The Savile Club! The string quartet also enjoyed the wedding music choices for the ceremony:

Traditional Bridal Chorus for the entrance of the bride,

The couple’s beautiful request we specially wrote and learned for them, Amie by Damien Rice,

and the super upbeat Marry You for their exit as new Mr&Mrs.

Fantastic Weddings in the Summer!

As Niche – The London String Quartet have headed into their Busiest Month Ever we’ve quickly stolen some time to tell you about the wonderful London weddings we performed for in August – they were just too gorgeous and unique to miss out!

Our first wedding of August was in one of the London String Quartet‘s favourite central locations, the stunning and unique wedding venue St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. On our third visit to the St Pancras this year we were to provide wedding music for Ann’s wedding reception and wedding breakfast as Niche String Trio. The wedding reception music was a stylish and classy affair with the newly-weds choosing the expansive and famous Barcarolle as their special wedding music request to accompany the guests’ first entrance into the grand Ladies Smoking Room.

For the Wedding Breakfast we moved on to our fun and exciting modern string quartet repertoire to entertain the seated guests in the Renaissance’s Gallery – it was a hugely successful event with our final song Bittersweet Symphony being requested by the Bride and Niche London String Trio leaving the room to huge rounds of applause!

Here is a what Ann wrote to Niche after the big day: Just a quick note to say thank you so much for doing an amazing job and making our day go absolutely perfectly!! Everyone was clapping for you, and I missed Bittersweet Symphony while outside of the Gallery for a minute so thank you so much for playing it again for me. We are still receiving compliments about how wonderful you were and it was such an elegant touch to the cocktail hour and dinner. We couldn’t have asked for it to go any better!” Read more testimonials from past Niche clients here.

Niche String Quartet’s next London Wedding was in the grand and historic Hall Place, to provide wedding ceremony music, and entertainment during the drinks reception and wedding breakfast. The ceremony was a gorgeous affair in the tastefully decorated ancient hall with Lorraine making her big entrance to Pachelbel’s Canon (a firm wedding favourite), and the couple being serenaded by romantic 1000 years and All My Life as music for signing the register. The newly weds left the hall to the triumphant traditional Wedding March – the perfect example of how modern and traditional music can be blended together to make unique wedding music when you choose a string quartet for your wedding!

Lorraine and Fred chose Niche London Quartet’s highly unique Niche Jukebox service for their wedding reception and dinner entertainment ensuring that the guests could be involved and thrilled throughout the day! Lorraine and Fred posted their thanks to Niche Quartet on our Facebook Page!

Huge Congratulations to both of the lovely couples – Niche were so happy to be able to make your wedding day perfect!
