Niche String Quartet loves weddings

The quartet have just come back from playing at a lovely wedding ceremony and reception at One Great George Street in the heart of Westminster this weekend…we’ll tell you more about that later, their special request and how their guests were thrilled…but here is a bit of a throwback post showing why we love playing at weddings so much!

Niche London String Quartet and Trio received a lovely message from one of our happy brides (and new Mrs!) – we created an arrangement of The Cure’s Just Like Heaven to be played during the ceremony, as the happy couple were becoming officially Man and Wife. It was a beautiful wedding with beautiful string wedding music to match in the University Women’s Club Library, Mayfair.

Here is some of what Jacqueline had to say,

“I just wanted to say we were absolutely blown away by you guys during our ceremony and could not be happier with the music. The Cure arrangement was so beautiful and special to us, thank you.”

We really enjoy playing for weddings, but hearing back from our clients and knowing that we made their day really is the best feeling!

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.

Gorgeous London String Quartet Weddings

June 2014 outdid May as our busiest month yet, then August took over…now we are looking forward to our busiest ever month in September!!

Niche – The London String Quartet, String Trio and Duo have all been out and about across London visiting the most beautiful wedding venues this summer!

One of the wedding highlights of June was visiting Pembroke Lodge in Richmond to provide string quartet wedding ceremony and reception music. The couple chose a great mix of traditional and modern for their wedding ceremony music:

Bride’s Entrance: Pachelbel’s Canon
Signing of the register: I Giorni, Fly me to the Moon, It Must be love
The big exit as Mr and Mrs: All You Need is Love

and afterward during the reception guests danced and clapping for us as we played modern quartet music by the Beatles, Queen, and one of our newest arrangements requests for Mr Brightside.

Another excellent June wedding for the London String Quartet was at the Dorchester Penthouse where we provided a performance of Fields of Gold for the processional as the bride entered and once again the lovely All You Need is Love for the Recessional.

We also visited gorgeous top venues like Chandos House near Regents Street, Painshill Park in Surrey and Temple, Holland Park and more. Soon we will do another update with some of our favourite July Weddings and venues!

 

 

Super busy Musicians for Events!

May has been so incredibly busy – just this week Niche – The London String Quartet have been travelling all across London to provide entertainment for corporate parties, champagne receptions, and weddings! We have also been putting together all the special requests of music for our June bookings.

Mid-week Niche Quartet travelled to the city to provide musical entertainment for ITG’s office party. Niche entertained guests throughout the 3hr party with a mix of classical and popular music. Everybody was having a great time!

We also went to The Chelsea Flower Show to provide music for corporate events at the stunning Great Hall the Royal Hospital Chelsea. We provided an energy filled performance of classical music for the first half of the champagne reception to welcome guests to the luxurious surroundings. Then for the 2nd half we performed a mixture of jazz, film music and of course our favourite chart hits as guests enjoyed canapés. Once again lovely guests took the time to come and thank us and say how much they enjoyed the music as they headed home after a great evening!

Last weekend Niche London Quartet visited the gorgeous countryside wedding venue Gaynes Park Barns to play wedding music for a wedding reception with a view. The bride had provided us with the list of songs she wanted to hear from our repertoire list and we went to work thrilling and entertaining her guests in the sunshine. We finished with our Queen Medley and some lovely guests came over to say they thought we were fabulous and amazing :)

We have been having a great time providing entertainment for corporate events and weddings across London venues and are looking forward to all the wedding music and event entertainment we are providing in June – our busiest month yet!
