Dear Martin,

I just wanted to write and thank you for playing for us and keeping our guests entertained throughout our drinks reception last Thursday.

Everyone commented on how good you were and how lovely the music was.  We would highly recommend you for any event.

Merry Christmas to you all and every happiness for 2016!

Kind regards and thank you once again.

Hi Rachel,

 

Hope you are well.  I’m so sorry it has taken so long for us to email you – we have had a busy few months – wedding, honeymoon and moving house! But we really wanted to thank you all for playing so beautifully and making our wedding day so special!

 

You were so helpful and professional on the day and in the lead up to our wedding and were really a pleasure to work with. We received so many comments on the day and afterwards saying how having the string quartet there really added to the atmosphere of celebration and kept everyone entertained and was something that everyone loved. It was especially lovely to be able to walk down the aisle as you played and to be able to choose the songs that mean a lot to us to be played at special points throughout the day.  We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone else in the future.

 

Thank you again!

 

Emma & Francois Ackermann

 

Hi guys,

Just a huge great big THANKS for Saturday. You were absolutely fantastic and the music blew me away. Everyone commented on how beautiful the music at the service and in the paddock were.  I was so moved by your arrangement of A Thousand Years as I entered the church. Everyone loved the Beatles as we signed the register too!  I will be recommending you to every bride to be that I know. You really made the day so special and I would be more than willing to write a testimony for your website.
Thanks again,

Mrs Joanna Wayne (!!!)

Dear All,

 

Firstly apologies for the tardiness of this note. Claire and I wanted to write to thank you for the superb performances you gave for us at Old Wardour Castle and Bradley House at our wedding in September 2011. We loved it and so did our guests, (some of whom took some great photos which we’d be happy to send over if you would like). I know the weather caused some problems which you managed to overcome, true professionals.

 

Again please accept our thanks. If you would like to use us as a testimonial for your website that would be fine. If you’d like to, please just write the words you’d like to use and send it over for us to ok before publishing. With very best wishes for the future,

Hi Rachel,

 

Kate and I wanted to thank you and your group very much once again for playing at our wedding.  When the guests arrived at the Town Hall the atmosphere was fantastic with beautiful music to set the scene.

During the ceremony the timings and pieces played were perfect.  Thank you very much for the special requests played during the register signing.

At the reception the whole garden was filled with gorgeous sound, We really enjoyed listening while we were having our photos taken and having our drinks.

A great number of our guests particularly commented on how delighted they were with your playing and one said he wished that part of the afternoon had never ended!

I am particularly fond of classical music and your performance was one of the most memorable parts of my wedding!

We will highly recommend Premiere String Quartet to anyone looking for musicians for their special occasions.

 

With thanks again,

 

Mark and Kate Sidney

 

 

Hi Martin,

 

I wanted to thank you all for the music you provided on our wedding day, the broad range of genres, both old and new was the perfect accompaniment to our day. Everybody seemed to love the music you were playing and on more than on occasion someone came up to me and said “Did I hear the Game of Thrones Soundtrack being played”?…Yes you did!

Your professionalism was also noted by a lot of people including myself and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to other people.

I have attached a picture which was taken whilst you were playing in the great hall as I thought you may like it.

Thanks again!

Carl

Hi Rachel

 

We hope you had a fantastic Christmas and New Year.

 

We just wanted to drop you an email thanking you for the fabulous music you provided for our wedding! The guests and Daniel couldn’t stop saying how lovely it was!! I however after much running around finally got a great dance to Wonderwall at my request and got to thoroughly enjoy it all the way!

 

Thank you. We would definitely recommend you to a friend.

Hi Martin,

All the best and thanks once again,

 

Richard and Hannah

 

Dear Martin,

 

I hope this email finds you well. We just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you again for playing at our wedding ceremony back in September.  Having you perform our favourite songs throughout the ceremony just made the occasion even more memorable for us, and I don’t suppose I will ever forget how hearing Snow Patrols, Chasing Cars played by a string duo made me feel just before I walked down the aisle. Just utterly amazing. We would also like to thank you for your complete professionalism and how you quickly changed location for playing due to the weather.  So many of our guests have commented on just on lovely it was to have live music playing, so thank you again for helping making our wedding day perfect.

 

Kind regards

 

Elaine and Jack

Thank you Martin & Rachel for playing for us and keeping our guests entertained throughout our drinks reception. Everyone commented on how fantastic you both are. We were ever so fortunate to find such a fabulous, talented Duo and would highly recommend you for any event.

Hi Rachel,

 

Thank you so much for your fabulous performance on Saturday. It really made the ceremony. We loved having you and your hubby there! I just wish I’d been able to listen to you play for longer, but I found out that the bride doesn’t really get to stay in one place for very long! Let us know if you have any concerts coming up – we’d be there in a shot!

Dear Rachel and team,

 

I just wanted to send you a (very belated!) note to say thank you so, so much for your absolutely beautiful playing at our wedding in June. You were completely brilliant; one of our highlights of the day was listening to your fab rendition of Music of the Night during the signing of the register in our ceremony, and so many of our guests mentioned how wonderful the music at the reception was.

Thanks so much again and best wishes,

Julia

Hello Martin,

 

I just wanted to say thank you again for your duet string performance at my son’s wedding recently. We had all the magical ingredients, a wonderful setting, weather and you! Your music set the right beautiful atmosphere to start off proceedings and it was just lovely to walk out into the gardens and to see you and your partner playing beautiful soft music while guests ate their canapés. Everybody remarked on the wonderful music. Thank you again Martin, also for your patience in dealing with all the exacting demands made by the venue.

 

Best wishes

 

Jean

 

Hi Martin,

I hope you’re well.

I wanted to email you to thank you for the fantastic music you provided at the wedding. Our music choices were very important to us and we felt so emotional hearing the string versions on the day. So many guests commented on how beautiful the playing was and we are genuinely so grateful.

I’ve had a look on your website but I can’t see where I can write a review. If you would like me to write one, please let me know where is best and I’d be more than happy to do so.

Many thanks,

Jennifer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hi Martin

 

I really just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for the music you played at our wedding! It was perfect and we both loved it! Walking down the isle to Canon in D by Pachelbel was amazing and magical for me! My mum gasped as you started to play and said how much she loves that piece! My mum walking me down the isle to that was the most amazing feeling ever!

 

All our guests loved the music and commented how beautiful everything was.

 

Thanking you again!

 

Jess & Tony

Martin and Rachel,

 

Thank you so much for your wonderful playing at Brenda’s 60th Tea party. It was a wonderful surprise for her and we all really enjoyed both your playing and the wonderful range of music you played. A special thank you also for the excellent arrangements of Bridge over Troubled Water and Knights in White Satin that you did for us. They are very special tunes for Brenda and she really appreciated them.

We all wish you every success for the future,

 

Thank you again and all the very best

Hello Rachel,

 

I just wanted to send you an email to thank you for playing at our wedding on Monday 22nd December.  You were fantastic and really made the atmosphere we had hoped for.  Our guests were very complimentary about you as well.  The song choices were great too!  I do apologise that I didn’t get a chance to thank you in person on the day… It goes so quickly!!

 

I hope you had a lovely christmas and I wish you a very happy new year!

 

With our best wishes,

Hi Rachel,

 

Just wanted to say thank you for all your help with arranging for the quartet to play at our wedding reception.

 

It was a shame not to meet you personally to say thank you but the quartet sounded amazing.

 

We had so many comments saying how great they were and we absolutely loved the arrangement of Time by Hans Zimmer. My Dad rushed off the top table to tell his friends to listen to it as he absolutely loved it!

 

My husband James said the quartet was one of his favourite parts of the day. It was a shame that missed seeing them properly during the drinks reception as we were taken off for photos in the grounds but so glad to hear them during the wedding breakfast. It was a little dark and chilly in the hall but the quartet did well to play under such testing conditions and just shows how talented everyone was – true professionals!

 

We loved the mix of songs that the quartet played and I will never forget being announced to guests in Baron’s Hall as Mrs Watson and hearing the quartet playing ‘Feeling Good’ – was the perfect song to sum up that moment!

 

Thanks again for everything Rachel

 

Lynn & James Watson

 

 

Hi Rachel,

 

to say what a fabulous wedding day we had back in February and it was all enhanced by the Premiere String Trio. You were absolutely fabulous in all that you played.  From Maryanne’s entrance to the background music while we greeted everybody, it was all absolutely lovely.  You are a truly great set of musicians.

 

My personal highlight was our entrance into the wedding breakfast, where you played Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida” it was brilliant, we both felt like royalty as we ran into the room.  It’s a memory that will be with me till my dying day.

 

All of our guests said what a great touch you made to the day and how versatile and varied your repertoire was.  Please thank your colleagues immensely from us both.  If ever I need a string trio/quartet, I certainly know where to come.  In fact, I’m thinking of an occasion where I could utilise you again and listen more intently.

 

Many thanks again for making our amazing day even more amazing.

 

Best wishes and kind regards

 

Michael & Maryanne

 

 

Hi Martin, thank you to your amazing quartet for accompanying my performance yesterday. You played beautifully throughout the ceremony and during drinks and many people commented on your sound, repertoire and professionalism.  Apologies I didn’t get to thank you personally yesterday.  We were checking into our room at the time you left and I missed you!

 

I will pass on your details to anybody else looking for a quartet.

 

Best wishes,

Dear Rachel.

Our wedding at Groombridge Place  was just magical & we loved every minute of our special day. Your music was absolutely lovely. It added an extra layer of beauty & elegance to the occasion. So many of our guests have said how much they enjoyed your playing & complimented us on our inspired choice of musicians……….. I have to say, I agree with them wholeheartedly  & I would not hesitate to recommend you to others.

Thank you so much for all that you did to make our wedding such a happy & wonderful occasion.

With Best Wishes Jane & Mike xxxx

 

 

Hi Rachel,

 

I am so sorry it has taken me so long to get in touch with you and thank you for playing at our wedding. We got back to Australia from our honeymoon 2 weeks ago and it has all been a bit mad. Ian and I were really disappointed that we didn’t get the chance to hear you play (mainly because we were having a ridiculous amount of photos taken!!). Our guests all raved about how fantastic you were. My Auntie said she could have just sat and listened for hours. My nephew, Louis, was also chatting away about you playing Jeeves and Wooster. Thank you so much for being such a fantastic part of our wedding day. Thank you so much!

 

Warmest wishes,

 

Rebecca

 

 

 

Dear Rachel

A belated thank you for playing at Alison’s significant celebration on Saturday (it’s been a long weekend!) – it was exactly how I wanted the evening to start; I was pleased so many of our guests made very complimentary comments about your playing and how enjoyable it was to hear live music in that style at the start of the evening. Your selection of pieces was spot on and it was a huge pleasure to have you play for us.

Thank you for travelling to Eastbourne – if there is an opportunity to book you again we will and I have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends.

Thank you again

Robert & Alison

 

 

Martin,

 

Nasrin and I just wanted to thank you both for the fantastic music at our wedding. Everyone loved it and it really made the day more special.

 

All the best for the future.

 

Rob and Nasrin

 

 

Hi Rachel,

 

Thank you both for your contribution to our special day on Saturday.

 

You made it very easy for us and the music sounded great at Scotney. It sounded even better when Lucy caught ‘Kissing You’ (a favourite!) as we were about to be showered with confetti at Hotel du Vin!

 

We hope you enjoyed the day and would happily recommend you and consider you for future functions.

 

You were both amazing and we will always be grateful.

 

Thanks again,

 

Dean & Lucy

Hi Rachel,

Apologies this is quite late but we have only got back from honeymoon recently. Just wanted to say thank you for playing so beautifully last month at our wedding. The music was great during the ceremony & drinks reception and I hope you enjoyed playing at Millbridge.

Thanks again,

Chris

 

Hi Rachel –

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for the wonderful music on Saturday. It was absolutely beautiful. I am so sorry I didn’t get to come and speak to you on the day – I’m afraid the day just went too fast and there are a lot of people I just didn’t get to.

I received so many compliments regarding the wonderful music – it made the day very special.  Please pass on my thanks to all at Premiere Strings.

Best regards,

Anna

Hi Martin

Hi Rachel,

 

Id just like to say a great big thank you for arranging the music and performing it so well.  Everyone appreciated it especially Olena and myself and it really helped make the day.

 

If you were to ever produce a CD with those arrangements on, I would pay good money for it.

 

I will be sure to recommend you to my friends and family and hope to hear you again in the not to distant future.

 

Kind regards,

Hi Rachel,

 

We just wanted to say thank you so much for playing at James & Jessica’s Wedding on Saturday 17/9/16. You all helped to make the day truly magical with the wonderful arrangements both of the pieces that we had chosen & the other selections from your repertoire. Many of the guests commented & said how much they enjoyed the music & I have been asked for your details by friends of ours whose daughter is getting married next year, as they were very impressed with your performance too!

Hi Rachel and Martin,

 

I wanted to say “thank you” for the beautiful music played at my wedding last Saturday. I was so nervous I only remember snippets of it but I do recall it sounded lovely. Many people said to me how perfect it sounded. I’m sorry I never got chance to say hello on the day, but you all did a lovely job, so

 

Thank you very much.

String Trio for a wedding in Groombridge Place

Premiere String Quartet were recently engaged to provide music for a wedding ceremony and reception in the beautiful surroundings of Groombridge Place, on the border of Kent and East Sussex. We are always pleased to perform at a venue local to us and as some of our members are based in Tunbridge Wells as well as London this venue is ideal for us to perform as a String Quartet, String Trio, String Duo or even a solo violin or cello!

Groombridge Place was voted South East England’s ‘Favourite House’ by Country Life Magazine and is world famous as the setting for the BAFTA award winning movie based on Jane Austen’s classic novel, ‘Pride and Prejudice’, featuring Keira Knightly.

The ceremony itself was held in the amazing Baronial Hall where we performed a selection of classical music for string quartet as the guests assembled.  The bride and groom’s choice of music worked really well for the ceremony, including Pachelbel Canon in D and the Flower Duet from Delibe’s “Lakme” (made famous by the British Airways advert). Often people want something upbeat for the exit but they asked for a more serene piece which worked beautifully – Haydn Serenade Op 3 No 5.

As the guests moved outside for drinks and canapes on the lawn we relocated to underneath the portico to entertain them with a mix of classical and lighter music, overlooking a couple of amazing vintage cars belonging to the relatives of the bride. After the guests returned to the Baronial Hall to continue the day we packed away and prepared for the 10 minute drive home – an unusual but welcome finish to the booking!

String Quartet for Party in Eastbourne

It’s always nice to play some music to add atmosphere to a party – usually we are booked at the beginning of an evening event to prevent any “dead air” as the first guests arrive and create a transition to the later part of the evening with some of our lighter music and pop arrangements for strings. This particular evening was no exception – we were booked as a full string quartet to begin the evening’s entertainment for a 60th birthday party at the  Sovereign Harbour Yacht Club in Eastbourne, East Sussex.

intro-club intro-rss

As we arrived the band were finishing their sound check – allowing us to set up in plenty of time to begin as the first guests arrived. We had been asked to play the full range of our repertoire so began with some well known classical pieces. These included Pachelbel Canon in D, Mozart’s fantastic Divertimenti, and some of our new arrangements of Vivaldi Concertos. Moving through our repertoire we played Tangos, Show Tunes, Gershwin numbers and more, leading to some of our new contemporary songs arranged for string quartet. John Legend, Coldplay, Clean Bandit, Katy Perry, Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams all featured in our set. As the band got ready to play we played a special classical arrangement of Happy Birthday. The party was in full swing as we left – only wishing we could stay and enjoy the fun!

String Duo in Syon Park

We were recently engaged to provide strings for a wedding at Syon House in West London. It is a venue we have played at many times and the Great Hall is fantastic to play in due to the wonderful acoustic (with guests in!).

The-Great-Hall-set-for-a-wedding-ceremony-at-Syon-Park-a-unique-wedding-venue-in-Middlesex-near-London-featured-on-the-Gay-Wwedding-Guide

We accompanied the guests’ assembly with some well known music for strings. The Bride had asked for some special Processional music including an arrangement of Carrying You from Laputa – The Girl Who Fell from the Sky, a Ghibli animation with music composed by Joe Hisaishi:

Being a huge fan of Ghibli movies I was only too happy to oblige making an arrangement for strings of this wonderful piece!!

The end of the ceremony in Syon House is always extra special as family and witnesses go into a private room at the back of the hall for the signing of the register, allowing for the bride and groom to make a bigger exit.

Following the ceremony the guests were invited into the gardens for a champagne reception accompanied by the Wedding Strings. We played a mixture of classical music along with our latest contemporary music arranged for strings. The last piece was a special request from the bride for the Groom – the Theme from Game of Thrones! One of our new arrangements of music for strings.

Premiere String Quartet hope to return to Syon House very soon!

String Trio at Mountains, Hildenborough

Premiere String Quartet recently performed for a fantastic wedding ceremony and drinks reception at Mountains Country House in Hildenborough, Kent. It was a relatively local wedding for us as we are based in Tunbridge Wells. Hidden away behind Hildenborough station this is a really stunning venue with a permanent marquee to hold the wedding breakfast. We arrived very early to rehearse some special requests for the ceremony, including The Balcony Scene from Romeo and Juliet by Craig Armstrong which the bride really wanted to walk in to. We have been asked to arrange pieces especially on many occasions and the couple were great film music fans – more about this later!

Following the ceremony we moved through to the bar area as guests milled about both inside and outside but with a lovely acoustic the music carried very well. At this point we moved on to some of our more popular songs for string trio. We have recently updated out repertoire list to include a lot more contemporary string arrangements and could include something for everyone! As the drinks reception due to a close we relocated to the marquee to play some music for the wedding breakfast. We played the guests in and then accompanied the bride and groom’s entrance with All You Need is Love. It was now time to focus on the couple’s requests for Movie Music arranged for Strings including Star Wars, Jurassic Park and some Disney arrangements. It was a really lovely wedding and a chance for us to try out lots of our new pop songs for string quartet mountains@2x2. mountains_country_house_marquee_country_wedding_venue_kent_3

String Quartet in London – Venues

Having recently taken a new booking at Syon House in West London we have been looking back at some of our favourite venues we have played in London. Our smaller ensembles can suit different venues better, for example we played a smaller wedding for only 20 people at the Dorchester Hotel where only a string duo would have been able to fit in the space. Of course if you are having a very large number of guests you may prefer the sound of the string trio or full string quartet for a wedding or corporate event.

Here are some of the venues we have performed at in London:

The Ritz, Piccadilly

The Dorchester, Park Lane

Syon Park, Chiswick

Stationer’s Hall, London

Plaisterer’s Hall, London

Vintner’s Hall, London

Tower Bridge, London

Vinopolis, London Bridge

String Duo in Kent

On Sunday Premiere String Quartet were booked to provide a String Duo for a special birthday lunch at one of our favourite venues, the Spa Hotel, Tunbridge Wells. A total of 35 people attended this lovely occasion which was held in the Yorke Suite. The string duo provided ample sound for the numbers in attendance and a larger ensemble may have been too much sound for the occasion. We had been asked by the client to provide a mixture of music from across our entire repertoire as there were people of all ages attending so we began with some of our classical arrangements for Viola and Cello including Massenet’s Meditation. As the party moved over for lunch changed to some of our new pop music for strings, concluding with some modern pop arrangements for strings including music by John Legend and Clean Bandit.

Strings for recording sessions

Premiere Strings have provided string parts for many projects at studios in and around London, most recently at Angel Studios and Abbey Road. Here is an example of our work, composed by the very talented Kevin Penkin and recorded with a string quartet using overdubbing to create a more orchestral effect.

We have performed as a string duo, building up parts to give an entire string section effect, however we can also engage top London strings to provide a full string section for recordings to give a more ‘live’ feel.

We are skilled arrangers so even if you don’t have the parts written down yet we can help you to realise your music.

If you require a String Quartet in London or further afield please get in touch to discuss the options available.

Check out our website www.premiere-string-quartet for more information.
