On Saturday the Manor House String Quartet were delighted to return to The Manor at Elstree for the wedding of Alex and Rachel. We began by providing some elegant music in the lobby of the hotel, as everyone was congregating before making their way into the ceremony. For this part of the day we played a more sedate set, ranging from Pachelbel’s Canon in D to ‘Songbird’ and ‘Stand By Me’.
After the ceremony everyone made their way out of the front entrance for a series of group photos and afterwards came back inside for the reception drinks. We mixed in a selection of rock and pop classics especially chosen by the bridal couple, with a few classical pieces in between. We met some fabulous people as well as the groom’s father who loves cello and piano music. The staff at The Manor were exceptionally friendly – they couldn’t do enough to help and created a really welcoming atmosphere. We really hope that we’ll get an opportunity to return very soon!
We’d like to wish Alex and Rachel a wonderful time and a happy and successful future together – they were an absolute joy to deal with.
