Beds Wedding String Quartet at Woburn Abbey – On the last Friday in May, our string quartet were engaged to play for another wedding back in the Sculpture Gallery at Woburn Abbey. This is both a very local and regular venue for us and we know the staff and layout well. For this particular wedding, the couple had been married at a nearby church and so we provided music for the drinks reception and much of the wedding breakfast.
The couple were blessed with a beautiful sunny afternoon, so we opted for the only shaded area overlooking the back lawn (namely, the bushes situated at the far end). From here, we entertained the guests with a selection of modern rock and pop songs for string quartet.
Later, we set up indoors and played for a further hour or so as guests enjoyed their meals. The sound of the quartet floated through the indoor space of the Sculpture Gallery, adding a real sense of celebration to the occasion.
We left after I spoke with a delighted bride and with many guests commenting on the high quality of the music. We look forward to returning as a string quartet to Woburn Abbey in the near future!
