Leicestershire Wedding String Duo at Kimcote

By vaughan • 14th September 2013 • Posted in: Our music quartet at weddings

A couple of Sundays ago, Rachel Robson (viola) and myself (violin) were asked to play as a string duo for a wedding ceremony at All Saints Church in Kimcote, Leicestershire. It was another example of a wedding where the string duo was appropriate as there were in the region of 80 guests and we fit perfectly in a corner to the left hand side of the church. We played half an hour of well known classical pieces as the guests entered the church, before the entrance of the bridesmaids and bride. For this, we played ‘Hoppipolla’ by the well known band Sigur Ros. Unusually, we also accompanied the hymn (‘Make Me A Channel of Your Peace’) as well as accompanying a singer during the signing of the register. For this, we played Elbow’s ‘One Day Like This’ together before performing the popular ‘Kissing You’ by Des’ree arranged for string duo.  The couple exited the ceremony to the ever popular  ‘It Must Be Love’ by Madness and the bridal party then had a few photographs taken outside the church before departing to the drinks reception venue.
