We were very excited to visit the lovely Bijou Weddings venue Silchester House last Saturday and to return Danesfield House. Silchester House is an intimate venue we were asked to play Pachelbel for the Bridal entry, Kissing you by Des'ree for the Signing of the registers and the ever popular Queen of Sheba for the Recessional. We loved the Dinosaur reading by Edward Monkton that had been picked for the ceremony.


We then played a outside under the shelter of the gazebo whilst guests enjoyed their champagne.


At Danesifeld we performed for the wedding breakfast in the Beautiful Versailles Suite as a string duo, following on from our string quartet performing for the wedding ceremony earlier that day in Beaconsfield.

Our string duo paid it's first visit to the Great House in Sonning last Saturday, performing a mix of classical repertoire for guests during the champagne reception. It was lovely to see a few familiar faces and we had a great time performing music by Pachelbel, Bach, Handel and Mozart.


We occassionally perform as a duo and it worked really well in this case with an intimate setting and a relativel small wedding party meaning that even as a duo we could clearly be heard.
