Leicestershire Wedding String Duo at Hothorpe Hall – On Saturday the Manor House String Duo provided music for a wedding held at Hothorpe Hall in Leicestershire – a venue which despite being a 60 mile drive away was quite easy for us to get to up the M1. Set in spacious grounds with some terrific views of the surrounding countryside, this wedding venue was built in 1799 and is still an imposing and attractive building. It was an ideal venue for a string duo as the wedding room offered us the chance to be at the front, near the registrar – which is ideal for us to see all the proceedings and time the music perfectly. Often when the musicians are seated at the back of a room, it is slightly more difficult to see what is going on. Here is a video of our string duo playing a lovely piece by J.S.Bach:
After the ceremony, there was a short break for photographs but it wasn’t long before all the guests (drinks in hand!) were back for the reception in the same room and we were able to entertain all age groups with a nice selection of music.
