Hertfordshire String Duo For a Wedding at Pendley Manor, Tring

By vaughan • 4th October 2014 • Posted in: Weddings We've Played At

On Saturday 24th August, it was with the greatest pleasure that the Manor House String Duo played for a wedding at our most local venue: Pendley Manor, in Tring, Hertfordshire. Situated less than 5 miles from home, I arrived at the venue an hour early in order to put up a gazebo which would later be used to shade the musicians during the reception drinks. It’s often worth considering what kind of weather you may experience during the parts of your wedding that involve being outside. As our antique instruments can’t be exposed to direct sunlight for long, we can provide a gazebo as cover if you need us to. For more details, as well as as other things worth considering, you can read our FAQs page.

 

Reiad Chibah (viola) and myself began playing in the ceremony room, as guests made their way to their seats. We performed a selection of calming pieces from our rock and pop repertoire, including ‘Chasing Cars’ by Snow Patrol and ‘You and Me’ by Lifehouse. The bride and her bridesmaids then entered to Pachelbel’s Canon (a good choice for an entrance piece due to its structure, which allows it to be tailed off at many points throughout the piece). We later performed the Roberta Flack version of ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ during the signing, before giving a rendition of Shania Twain’s ‘From This Moment On’ as the bridal couple left the ceremony room.

 

Out on the lawn under the gazebo, we entertained guests, many of whom took an active interest in our music. Many requested specific pieces or chose from our extensive selection of rock and pop items. We eventually finished just as all the guests were called in for the wedding breakfast.
