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!
Massive Congratulations to another happy Niche Quartet couple!
Towards the latter half of our very busy August Niche The London String Quartet travelled out of London for wedding music in lovely leafy Hertfordshire and Essex…
On the August Bank Holiday Saturday Niche London String Trio journeyed together to the beautiful wedding of Lucy in Marks Hall, Coggeshall, Essex. The plan was to perform our wedding music favourites in the grand Main Hall where the guests arrived from the ceremony for the wedding reception. We serenaded them with classics such as Pachelbel’s Canon, The Vivaldi Four Seasons (very apt with the unpredictable English summer weather!), waltz’s, Bach and more. The wedding guests mingled and drank champagne until they were seated for the speeches, after which we changed our repertoire to our fun modern string arrangements such as Paradise and Coldplay, our brand new Abba and Queen Medleys, Jason Mraz, Bruno Mars and more!
Numerous guests came over to us whilst playing to ask for requests, which we were happy to provide as of course we have our extra special Niche Jukebox entertainment package perfect for keeping your guests entertained though-out your wedding!
As the String Trio left the guests and Newlyweds burst into applause, showing us that everyone had loved and enjoyed our work – an excellent gig for the London String Trio out in the countryside!
On the last Saturday of August Niche String Quartet travelled out of London to the wedding ceremony venue The Church of St. Peter and Paul in Little Gaddesdon, Hertfordshire. This beautiful church was absolutely stunning and historical – dating back to 1808, the perfect setting for us to play the romantic wedding music the bride and groom had chosen. We began playing Pre-Ceremony music – classical wedding favourites such as The Air on the G string by Bach, Faure’s Pavane and Pachelbel’s Canon as the wedding guests entered.
Using our special arrangement service Claire asked that we prepare an arrangement of ‘Story Book of Love’ from the film ‘the Princess Bride’ for her entrance. The perfect romantic wedding song for her big moment that she’d dreamed of walking down the aisle to for years!
The signing of the register began with a local choir from St.Albans – 30 members strong singing the lyrical masterpiece ‘For the Beauty of the Earth’. The second half of the signing Niche Quartet played the Brandenburg 3 final movement to spice things up – perfect to portray the excitement of the big moment! We love the Brandenburg!
We then travelled across to the Hertfordshire wedding reception venue in Beechwood Park to play a mixture of our Classical Repertoire and Pop repertoire whilst guests enjoyed Drinks and Canapes in the beautiful grounds.
Niche Quartet had a beautiful day playing wedding music for the ceremony and reception in such lovely venues – thrilling such friendly and happy guests!
All the best to our happy August Newlyweds!
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!
