A Very Modern Wedding

It’s the beginning of June and the weather has been shocking so far, but today we got to enjoy the sun and this wedding string quartet were sheltered from the wind in the delightful Great Conservatory at Syon Park!

Today Niche – The London String Quartet played wedding music picked only from our latest Popular repertoire and the Bride and Groom also took advantage of our professional arranging skills by requesting us to create 5 wedding songs specially just for them.  For the ceremony the popular song A Thousand Years from the Twilight Saga was picked for the Bride and her gorgeous bridesmaids, all in white, to make their entrance. For the signing of the registers Niche picked the romantic and dreamy Portugese Theme from the film Love Actually to set the perfect wedding atmosphere.  As the Bride and Groom left to cheers Niche Quartet played At Last by the late Etta James – A perfect end to a romantic and stylish ceremony.

Then it was straight onto the cactus house to entertain for the wedding reception. We kicked the party off with Marry You, another of the couple’s special requests, and after visiting Adele, Coldplay and other favourites in-between, we finished with the upbeat Don’t Stop Believin’.

Everyone always loves to hear songs played everyday on the radio and TV in an entirely different and new way through our instruments and busy fingers – we can tell by all the beaming smiles we receive! A successful day for Mr & Mrs, guests and Niche String Quartet!
