Hertfordshire Wedding String Quartet
By vaughan • 12th January 2016 • Posted in: Our music quartet at weddings
Hertfordshire wedding string quartet the Manor House String Quartet played for a wedding ceremony in the spacious R.C. parish church of St. Bartholomew’s in St Albans¬†on Friday June 12th 2015. The church has lovely acoustics which meant that our playing projected without too much effort to all the assembled guests. We began by playing a selection of popular classical¬†string quartet pieces¬†as guests were assembling and taking their seats. The bride then entered to Pachelbel’s Canon in D, which¬†could almost have been composed for such occasions, as it’s so perfectly suited to wedding processionals. You can hear our rendition of it here:
We also accompanied the hymns, which is fairly unusual as this is normally the terrain of church organists. The string quartet is able to give the hymns a special richness and character though and the arrangements of them¬†for strings do work very well.
At the end of the ceremony we exited the church and made our way to the nearby St. Michael’s Manor Hotel, situated further down from St Alban’s Abbey. This is a regular venue for us and one that is fairly local, so it’s always a pleasure to return. For this particular wedding we provided music for the reception drinks, and performed everything from Keane to Barry White, Bob Marley, Beyonc√©, Snow Patrol, as well as¬†E.L.O.’s ‘Mr Blue Sky’ for string quartet. We also spoke with many members of the bridal party and left as guests were being called through for the wedding breakfast. All-in-all, the music added a great deal to a wonderful celebration.
