Milton Keynes Wedding String Quartet

Milton Keynes wedding string quartet – On Friday 1st August the string quartet played for a wedding in the church of St Mary Magdalene in Willen, Milton Keynes. The church was designed by the scientist and architect Robert Hooke and built in around the year 1680 using the latest architectural principles, meaning that bigger windows were able to be used. This means that a greater amount of light is able to enter the building, and along with the lack of any supporting columns, gives the church a feeling of spaciousness and freshness that is exhilarating. Here’s how it looks (albeit with a tall microphone stand in the middle!):

The wedding party was probably in the region of 80 guests and the string quartet played as they entered the church and took to their seats in expectation of the bridal entrance. For this, we played Pachelbel’s beautiful ‘Canon in D’, a perfect piece for an entrance, due to its two bar phrases which mean that it can be tailed off at almost any point during the piece. For the Signing of the Register we performed a string quartet arrangement of ‘Chasing Cars’ by Snow Patrol as well as ‘One Day Like This’ by Elbow. Both pieces have become very popular for wedding ceremonies. And finally, as the married couple exited the ceremony we played them out to ‘Greatest Day’ by Take That – an appropriate way for them to start their celebrations!
