On Saturday we had the delight of playing at Indi and Polly’s wedding at Northbrook Park, near Farnham. Polly and Indi were really lucky with the weather and had a nice sunny day.
Northbrook Park is a charismatic country estate with a Grade II listed country manor house set in 120 acres of park land. This place looks really cool as it has plenty of unique styled rooms for the couple and their guests to stay in. There were also some impressive courtyards and walled gardens. There is a stunning lake too. The highlight of this venue is the collection of exotic peacocks that roam the grounds freely. We loved watching the peacocks mingle with the guests. And I think the guests loved it too !
We played in the Vine Room for the ceremony, a lovely bright and airy room. It was a great acoustic for us to play in too.
Polly was traditionally late for the ceremony, and we entertained the guests with a variety of light classical pieces such as Bach’s Air in G, Delibes Flower Duet, some Dvorak and others.
Polly entered with her father to the sounds of Pachelbel’s Canon. For the signing of the register, we played Vivaldi’s Spring, and Greensleves.
Once the couple had collected their certificate, we played them out to the main theme from the BBC 1995 version of Pride & Prejudice, having been reliably informed that Polly was obsessed with this when she was younger (~ me too !)
We then moved into the courtyard while the guests were having drinks and canapes. This was probably a bit of a surprise for Polly has Indi had called us up a few days before to the wedding to ask if we could stay a bit longer as a surprise for Polly seeing as the weather was looking so good. We entertained the guests with a selection of our varied repertoire. We played The Killers Human, Cantina Band from Star Wars, Stand By Me, and many many more!
THank you for booking us !
