Wedding Music all around London!

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!)

If you are looking for the perfect experienced London string quartet or trio for your wedding music do contact us and we can be sure to help – we would just love to be part of your love story! We only have 4 weekends until the end of the year that are still available and we are currently reserving bookings for 2018 & 2019 weddings.

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 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 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 Wedding String Quartet!

Niche String Quartet at Pembroke Lodge

As we come to the end of a very busy summer of 45 wedding music performances for the string quartet, string trio and string duo we thought it would be nice to do a little series of wedding blog posts on the top London wedding venues we play at most often!

First in our series has to be the wedding venue in Richmond Park Pembroke Lodge as Niche London String Quartet played wedding music there 7 times this Summer providing quartet music for ceremonies, wedding receptions and the breakfast – In July it felt like our second home and what a home to enjoy!

There are 2 parts of Pembroke Lodge where you can have your wedding, either the more intimate setting of the upstairs rooms of The Russell Suite, also enjoying the lawns to the side, or The Belvedere, getting to enjoy the wonderful views of the terrace for your wedding reception.

We tend to recommend Niche London String Trio or String Duo for weddings in The Russell Suite and we usually play for wedding in The Belvedere as a string trio and string quartet. This year our brides and grooms had wonderful summer wedding weather and we played outside on the terrace for every wedding reception!

Every one of Niche’s weddings at Pembroke Lodge has been unique, with the individual stylings and decorations being complimented by Niche Quartet playing the bride and groom’sΒ perfect soundtrack throughout the wedding. The string quartet wedding musicians played purely Disney music for one wedding ceremony and reception, another glamourous bride really loved to hear the Game of Thrones theme tune before she made her entrance, Β a Niche groom ran to us to say our performance was more than he ever could have imagined when the string quartet played his special request Por Una Cabeza during his wedding reception – We do love seeing our couples and their guests enjoying our music!!

We visited Pembroke in the last Thursday for a wedding ceremony where the guests sung along to us playing Mr Brightside for the newlywed’s exit and our next performance is booked for October and per usual we can’t wait!

Stylish London String Quartet Wedding Music

Niche London Quartet at Natural history museum weddingNiche London String Quartet had a fantastic winter of weddings and events and now in 2016Β we have played for some of the most stylish andΒ unforgettable weddings in London – here is the story of 2 weddings we played for recently to give you some wedding music ideas.

One Saturday morning we set off to visit St Monica’s Church in Hoxton to play music for aΒ church wedding in the centre of London. The bride had chosen a mix of modern and classical quartet music to set the atmosphere as guests arrived and took their seats in the stunning surroundings. For her big wedding entrance she had Niche London Quartet play our version of Moonriver – such a timeless Β and beautiful song! Then as the newlyweds went to sign the register she had ever so cool choices of modern wedding music performed to entertain her guests – modern favourites such as I’m Yours, Mr Brightside and Moondance. Then to celebrate their announcement as man and wife the string quartet joined the applause with the energetic Marry You by Bruno Mars!

For the evening we travelled across town to London’s famous Natural History Museum for the string quartet’s very own wedding version of Night at The Museum! Niche String Quartet had been hired to provide 2 separate performances – the first was an acoustic set of classical and modern string quartet music for the entrance of the guests into the wedding reception, welcoming them into Waterhouse Way which is filled with complete fossils of prehistoric sea animals!

Niche string quartet then moved into position for the second part of the evening which was an amplified performance of the probably the most well known string quartet wedding music piece of all time – Pachelbel’s Canon. This performance was the pivotal moment in the entrance procession to the wedding breakfast, first the bride and groom’s families entered to traditional Indian wedding music and then the Groom made his big entrance down one side of the famous staircase into the Natural History Museum’s Hintze Hall (where the Diplodocus lives!) accompanied by a thrilling performance of drummers, then as his Bride came down to join him we played the beautiful Pachelbel’s Canon in D for the most romantic and perfect entrance to the hall below.

A wonderful wedding filled day for our London wedding musicians and another story to cherish!

Beautiful Summer London String Quartet Weddings

Niche The London String Quartet had such a lovely summer playing at all different types of weddings across London and the South East – we visited some of our favourite wedding venues and lots of new ones too!

In August we played for 15 weddings, providing music as guests arrived and our clients chose a wide range of wedding ceremony music for our string quartet or trio musicians to play – big wedding ceremony music favourites was one of our latest additions “Rather Be” and also romantic John Legend song “All of Me” – See Our All of Me video here

Niche Quartet played lots of fun modern music for the wedding receptions – and guests had a great time recognising their favourite songs, but of course presented in our fabulous string quartet fashion!

Our string quartet in London also played some great entrance music choices for the announcement of the new Mr&Mrs to their wedding breakfasts – We had a range of modern favourites by Oasis and the Foo Fighters to older favourites like The Beatles Here Comes the Sun.

We’ve really enjoyed summer and now can’t wait to play music for all the Autumn weddings and big corporate events we have booked – we have 6 Winter weddings in the run up to Christmas booked so far and can’t wait to get out our Christmas music to provide entertainment at all the London Christmas Events Niche String Quartet play for!
