Manor House Music is a wedding string quartet and duo consisting of some of the UK’s finest musicians. Founded in 2005, and based on the borders of Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, we’ve now performed for over 700 weddings, corporate events and private functions. We combine a high quality of musical performance with a large repertoire of dynamic arrangements and a desire to work closely with clients to ensure that every detail is just right for your event.
Manor House Music offer a vast range of music suitable for most types of wedding entertainment. Our selection of rock and pop music has delighted guests with its energy and rhythmic intricacy, bringing alive many of the greatest hits of the last six decades or so. We are equally at home in sets of jazz and light music, film and T.V. favourites, through to folk, traditional Jewish and even Viennese music.
As well as performing a repertoire of over 800 pieces of music for string quartet, Manor House Music also provides a string duo - ideal for clients seeking a more affordable option whilst retaining a high level of performance. We offer a 250-strong selection of music for this combination, all of which sounds surprisingly full, capturing the essence of each piece perfectly.
Whatever your requirements may be, Manor House Music will work with you to make the music a real highlight of your event. We'll even arrange a song not yet available on our Playlist, especially for your special day (please enquire about this option to find out more or see our FAQs page).
Although we don't usually perform for less than a 2-hour booking, there are certain circumstances where this is possible (for example, a local booking on a weekday or a weekend where we already have an evening engagement). Please feel free to contact us for more information about what we can offer, as well as a quotation for your event.
Dear Vaughan, Thank you for playing at our wedding on the 8th December and at such short notice. We were very happy with the music which helped create a lovely atmosphere, and you were quite right that the duet was just the right volume for the number of guests / size of venue. The violin & cello arrangements were lovely. Sara and Alex (Wedding at Clare College, Cambridge)
