Manor House Music is a wedding string quartet and duo consisting of some of the UK’s finest musicians. Founded in 2005, 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.
The group 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, the group 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, the group 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 can perform for less than a 2-hour booking, our costs start from £360 for the string duo (2 hours playing) and £630 for the string quartet (again, for 2 hours). 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 - we absolutely loved the sound of your company from the moment we stumbled across your site and are thrilled that you could play in front of our guests at our wedding. Best wishes, Sara
