Beautiful Barn Wedding Venues London

Niche London String Quartet love to travel, especially when we are hired to play wedding music at beautiful barn wedding venues just outside of London! Read on to find out more about the best barn wedding venues and Niche Quartet wedding performances just outside of London. We look forward to playing at these venues again for our latest 2019 and 2020 wedding entertainment bookings!

 

Blake Hall – Ongar, Essex

The London String Quartet played for many memorable Essex wedding venues last year including 2 at the just too perfect Blake Hall. Brides and grooms who booked Niche London Quartet had their wedding ceremony in the Hay Barn. Our wedding musicians sit up on the beautiful glass fronted balcony and the music floats up into the beams, over the top of the guests creating the perfect welcoming atmosphere.

Then imagine the magic of walking in to Niche Quartet’s perfect rendition of Pachelbel’s Canon in D to all your friends and family and the love of your life waiting for you at the end of the aisle. 

Our beautiful 2018 bride Kendal chose our string quartet for her wedding and wrote a 5 star review on our Facebook page!

We booked Niche London String Quartet for our wedding at Blake Hall in November and couldn’t have been happier!! The correspondence ahead of the day was extremely helpful and professional and the music played was just stunning! It set the scene perfectly for our ceremony and drinks reception and we received so many compliments from family and friends. We would be delighted to recommend – thank you again!”

Watch her perfect wedding entrance below:

Niche String Quartet then played our modern wedding music mix which carried across the sunlit gardens for the wedding reception. The perfect upbeat start to the celebratory vibe for the afternoon!

 

Gaynes Park – Epping, Essex

Gaynes Park is another beautiful barn setting just outside London, perfect for a stunning wedding ceremony in their orangery with wedding reception right next door in the gardens. Niche have played at this barn for weddings throughout the years as string quartet and also string trio. The Orangery is a light and airy large space with the perfect nook for the wedding musicians to play in. The music welcomes guests as they enter through the big double doors. Brides and grooms love to have the quartet play classical music for a tradition feel to match the pretty rustic setting. Once the real celebrations begin and the doors are thrown open to the gardens Niche Quartet can create the perfect fun atmosphere playing their latest mix of fun pop and modern wedding music!

Tewin Bury Farm – Welwyn, Hertfordshire

Tewin Bury Farm provides one of the most perfect rustic barn wedding venues in Hertfordshire with the River Mimram flowing next to the window. There is also a one of a kind minstrel’s gallery set high in the beams. This is the perfect spot for the string quartet to play with the music floating over the top of the gallery. Niche London String Quartet can create the most beautiful and perfect atmosphere to match the 17th century setting.

Our Spring 2018 bride Frankie was a violinist herself and also Manager of the London Symphony Orchestra. With her experienced musical ear she hired Niche London String Quartet to play for her wedding ceremony and reception at Tewin Bury Farm in The Tythe Barn. She asked the string quartet to play classical wedding favourites such as Air in G and Bach’s Double Violin Concerto to welcome guests. She then asked our wedding musicians to learn and prepare her favourite piece ‘Marry Me’ from classic film My Best Friend’s Wedding for her walk down the aisle. It was perfectly romantic with plenty of happy tears from the bride, groom and her guests – One of Niche Quartet’s highlights of 2018!

Great Fosters – Egham, Surrey

Once again another perfect barn wedding venue hidden away just outside London right near the M25! Often the alumnae of nearby grand university Royal Holloway will get married at their breathtaking chapel nearby. They then follow on with their wedding celebrations at the nearby stylish and rustic Great Fosters Hotel. The Painted Hall is a wonderful setting for their wedding reception and then The Tithe Barn is perfect for a beautiful wedding breakfast.

In autumn Niche London String Trio played for a couple’s wedding where the groom is a videographer and so naturally their theme was film music based! They found plenty to love on our repertoire lists ranging from memorable Disney tunes to their favourite action film soundtracks. When the couple were announced to the room as the new Mr & Mrs for the wedding breakfast we played The Royal Fireworks music, perfect to match the rustic and grand barn lit by candles and fairy-lights. Then guests where thrilled as the string trio switched straight into the instantly recognisable Game of Throne theme tune following with brilliant soundtrack after soundtrack. The Jurassic Park theme song was a big hit as well with several guests coming to film our performance in-between meal courses!

Tech Week London 2018

Mordern String Quartet London Tech Week - Niche London

London Tech Week took place on the 11th-17th June in 2018 celebrating tech through the power of events. Naturally the most exciting tech brands turned to Niche London for the right modern string quartet music to make their events unforgettable! Our first Tech Week event was to play as trio, amplified through the in-house AV, to open the London Tech Week Gala Dinner in aid of The Princes Trust in the grounds of the Tower of London. We were honoured to be hired to be the London string musicians to provide the entertainment for this important charitable event and create the perfect atmosphere for an unforgettable celebration. 

The next day Niche String Quartet played modern music as entertainment for guests at the TechXLR8 awards ceremony corporate event at Gibson Hall, a glittering events venue in the heart of the City of London. Guests enjoyed our modern music throughout dinner and as a warm up for the awards ceremony to begin. Earlier that same day our all female string quartet had already been a very modern string quartet in London, playing for a surprise performance of ‘Simply the Best’ at Kings Cross as part of an elaborate surprise goodbye gift to a top event’s company C.E.O!

Our final Tech Week performance meant Niche Quartet were up bright and early dressed smart casual to welcome guests with fabulous modern music (chosen by the director from our extensive song repertoire) at the AI Summit at Excel London. Guests were filming us as we played and our music was the perfect way to get them excited for a day of exciting new tech filled exhibition. When we had finished the director enjoyed it so much he said he wished he had hired us for another hour!

It was a pleasure to specially arrange her favourite piece ‘Marry Me’ from classic film ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’ for her walk down the aisle (our rendition brought tears to her eyes for the perfect unforgettable entrance to her wedding ceremony). We then helped the celebrations begin by playing our wedding string quartet version of The Beatles  ‘All Your Need is Love’ for the happy newlyweds exit down the wedding aisle as the new Mr&Mrs S!
