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!).

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

On Saturday 11th March we were asked to perform for a large wedding at Ascot Racecourse, in the Grandstand. It’s amazing to get such a great view of an iconic venue from the 6th floor – as well as being able to perform some great music in String arrangements. We began the day performing for the reception as the guests arrived, a mixture of classical and pop arrangements before moving on to the ceremony area. Pieces ranged from Disney Songs to Moon River and the guests seemed to be having a lovely time. We finished our part of the day by moving downstairs and performing another mixture of music for strings which seemed to be popular with the mix of guests.

Another Wedding at Chilston Park

Last week we were asked to provide a String Duo for a wedding in Chilston Park in Lenham, Kent. Being one of the most popular wedding venues in Kent we always enjoy returning to perform here. Again the ceremony took place in the Orangery and as the couple had invited quite a few guests we were seated at the front of the ceremony room. Even though it was freezing outside the ceremony room was nice and warm, especially with 87 people in there! The ceremony music was a mixture of classical arrangements as well as modern covers for strings. The music for the drinks reception was again a selection of our string arrangements of modern songs for string duo. While the guests made the most of the dry weather to have a few photos taken we entertained everyone else before they made their way to the weddimg breakfast.
