Manor House String Duo for Wedding at Dodmoor House
By vaughan • 11th June 2014 • Posted in: Weddings We've Played At
On a Friday near the end of May, our string duo returned to the delightful setting of Dodmoor House, near Weedon in Northamptonshire. This venue is particularly suited to the string duo, as two instruments can fit easily on the right hand side of the barn, allowing the bridal party to exit in that direction. The string quartet could potentially be a little overbearing as well, as the sound of the music easily carries in this intimate setting.
This particular wedding had a really lively, party feel to it and as such we did manage to speak to quite a few guests during the course of the afternoon. The bride had specifically asked me to arrange the song ‘Whatever’ by Oasis for the exit of the bridal couple, and in complete contrast, we played the opening of Vaughan Williams’s ‘Fantasia on Greensleeves’ for her to enter to. During the signing of the register there was a mix of songs by the La’s, Oasis and Paul Weller.
After the end of the ceremony, the room was rapidly turned around, allowing the guests to enjoy their drinks and canapés in the same building. For this part of the day, we performed a variety of different rock and pop classics, chosen by the bridal couple to entertain guests of all age ranges.
