Wedding receptions and ceremonies in Northamptonshire: Sedgebrook Hall Hotel

Yesterday our string duo played for a small, intimate wedding at Sedgebrook Hall Hotel in Northamptonshire. There were only twenty five people present and this made the occasion especially personal and affecting. Our appearance was a complete surprise to the groom and the guests; it had all been arranged in secret by the bride, who had spent the last few months playing her husband-to-be recordings of different pieces to discover what he liked best, without him realising  she had an ulterior motive.

As the guests arrived we played baroque –  Bach, Purcell, Vivaldi and Handel’s Arrival of the Queen of Sheba – then the couple  walked into the room to the accompaniment of Wagner’s Bridal Chorus. For the signing we performed Pachelbel’s Canon followed by the Flower Duet by Delibes and we ended the ceremony with Widor’s Toccata. This was the first time we had performed  Roger’s very technically demanding arrangement of this work and I think it’s surprisingly effective for string duo.

Luckily the weather was beautifully sunny and during the drinks’ reception we chose lighter music and ended with another surprise for the groom: a performance of One Day Like This, his favourite song. The bride and groom drew close  while we played  and then started dancing gently together. Music is what feelings sound like.
