We were recently booked to play at Froyle Park for the wedding of Jenna and Dominic. Froyle is a 17th Century Jacobean manor, which has fairly recently opened as a wedding venue.
It’s part of the same group as Northbrook Park nearby.
This booking was a little different, as the bride had asked whether it would be possible to have a violin and guitar duet for her bridal entrance. She had chosen the song by Extreme, ‘More Than Words’. We were only to happy to oblige, and in addition to violins, viola and cello, we packed a guitar for the bridal entrance. Amy and Anna played a duet of Extreme’s More Than Words, and Ruth provided harmonisation on viola.
We enjoyed playing Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis, and Charles Aznavour’s She for the signing of the register. The newly weds exited the ceremony to Queen’s Crazy Little Thing Called Love.
We then moved across into the drink reception room, and set up in the corner and played some of our upbeat tunes while people enjoyed wine and canapes.
The wedding was on the 23rd December so it definitely had a Christmassy vibe to it, and Jenna and Dom had ordered a snow machine to create a snow scene outside for the group photos. We can’t wait to see how those photos came out!
