Wedding String duo in Chiddingstone Castle

images

Premiere String Duo played at a wedding yesterday at Chiddingstone Castle for Elaine and Jack. The weather was grey and rainy but this did not effect the lovely atmosphere of the wedding. Chiddingston Castle has a beautiful Orangery where the ceremony was being held. The String Duo performed well-known classical pieces as everyone arrived, Air on a G String, Pachelbel Canon in D and Flower duet. These were all pieces the bride had selected before hand. The Orangery is in the ground of the castle which is a beautiful setting for a wedding, it has a glass roof which protected the guests and musicians from the rain. After the ceremony the guests moved into the castle for the drinks reception. The string duo played a mixture of classical and pop arrangements including Coldplay Scientist, What a wonderful world, Greatest Day take that, Make you feel your love and rolling the deep by Adele.The Wedding String Duo concluded their music when all the guests went into the wedding breakfast.

A Wedding in Newnham College, Cambridge

sidgwick_jc_small.jpg-cb8560dbdf6bc8ad587c0bec3993e57d[350x227]Premiere String Trio performed at Kelly and Hindley’s wedding on Saturday in Cambridge. The wedding was held in Newnham College, Cambridge. The wedding ceremony was performed inside one of the buildings and the drinks reception within the fantastic grounds of the college. Cambridge University has some wonderful colleges perfect for a wedding, the grounds are always beautifully kept. Before the ceremony the string trio performed a variety of classical repertoire including Pachelbel Canon in D, Vivaldi Spring and an arrangement of Nimrod from Enigma Variation. We have adapted a lot of string repertoire to work well for String Trio so you can get an ensemble that projects well but for a more reasonable cost. In the drinks reception we continued with Classical pieces on request from the bride and guests in the wedding. The String Trio performed pieces by Vivaldi,Telemann, J.S Bach and Elgar. We have recently arranged Brandenburg Concerto’s for string trio and Vivaldi Violin Concerto for string trio.

Wedding at Gravetye Manor

Premiere String Duo performed at Gravetye Manor in West Hoathly, West Sussex last weekend for Emily and Russell’s wedding. The weather was bright and sunny perfect for this spring wedding. The guests arrived early into the ceremony room where we performed a selection of classical pieces including Pachelbel Canon, Elgar Salut d’Amour and Handel’s water music. The bride walked down the aisle to Faure’s Pavane and we played 2nd movement of Double Violin Concerto by J.S Bach arranged for Viola and cello and Romanza from Eine Kleine Nachmusik for the signing of the register. After the ceremony the newly married couple exited the ceremony room to La Rejouissance from The Royal Fireworks by Handel. The weather was beautiful so we were able to move easily into the gardens for their drinks reception, we were able to find a shaded spot perfect to protect our instruments. We then played a selection of pop music including an arrangement of Your Song by Elton John, No woman No Cry by Bob Marley and our new arrangement of Rolling In the Deep by Adele. A few days later we received this wonderful testimonial from the couple

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.
