Weddings and Civil Ceremonies
Niche have been shortlisted as Best Live Wedding Music Entertainment for London and the South East for 2013:
“Everyone loved you! Thank you for adding to the magic!”Whether you require music for the ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast – or all three, we will make sure you have the perfect musical accompaniment to your special day. Niche – The London String Quartet are highly experienced and will time your entrance and exit music perfectly having impeccable judgment during ceremonies, so you can be free of worrying about the details on the day.
We have traditional wedding favourites, classical music, a long list of favourite and up-to-date Chart hits, songs from musicals, films and jazz which allow us to cater perfectly for all tastes and styles. We would be delighted to discuss the choice of music in advance, and give helpful advice to ensure that your wedding is both memorable and unique.
We are very lucky to have members that can arrange music and if you have a special request we don’t already cover we will go the extra mile and arrange that piece specially for you free of charge! (Suitable notice must be given before the event.)
The most common format for weddings is as follows but we can play for as long as you want and where you want too!
- Music before the ceremony, as the guests arrive.
- Ceremony begins with Processional – during which the quartet performs a specially selected piece of wedding music.
- Signing of the register – the quartet play appropriate wedding background music or a specially selected wedding song.
- Recessional – a lively piece of music specially selected for the exit of the happily married couple.
- Music as photos are taken, and throughout drinks reception.
- Music for part or all of the wedding breakfast.
Wedding Breakfast, Dinners and Drinks
Niche is happy to travel to another venue if needed. We will tailor the music to create the perfect atmosphere for celebration and sophistication!
As a wedding band we often play outdoors during the drinks reception, but some of our instruments are 200 years old or more, and need to be sheltered from direct sunlight. In the event of rain we would need to move indoors.
We also provide a highly unique wedding music service where you and your guests can even get involved with the music as we provide a live requests show! We’ll provide the list and your guests get to choose whatever they want to hear – Like a live, interactive jukebox you will have the chance to have four musicians play your every request. It doesn’t get much more bespoke than Niche playing the soundtrack to your day! Just ask for The Niche Quartet Jukebox when booking.
