String Duo for a wedding at South Farm, near Royston
On Thursday, we returned to South Farm near Royston (on the border of Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire) to perform as a violin and viola string duo. This combination of duo is very popular and versatile, both in terms of repertoire and as it’s so portable, taking up far less room than a quartet. This was an important factor during the ceremony with the two musicians fitting perfectly at the back, behind the guests (whereas the wedding string quartet would have had to divide into two, so the bride would have entered through the middle of the group!)
After the ceremony itself, the guests moved out into the garden area where we were able to find shade and play a lively set of music during the photographs and drinks reception. We receieved many nice comments and finished our set just as the wedding party were due to go through to the reception meal.
