Luton Hoo Weddings – Ariella Strings

This year Ariella Strings have had the honour of playing for quite a few weddings at Luton Hoo Hotel where we are the recommended, professional string quartet.

Luton Hoo Hotel  is a 5 STAR Spa Hotel on the border of Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

Weddings here are excellent – the staff are amazing and the venue is gorgeous. Our couples who choose to get married here are treated to a 5* professional and friendly service. Nothing is ever too much trouble!

It is always really interesting to see a venue dressed in completely different schemes with the personal stamp of each couple!!  I thought I would share photos of 3 of these weddings (iphone snaps)!

This amazing venue has just won the National Wedding Awards 2016 “Wedding Venue of the Year (Countryside)” Congratulations to each and every member of the team who work so hard to make sure all their couples have the wedding they dream of!

From the moment couples book Dodmoor as their wedding venue, they are treated to the most amazing service. All the team members are caring, friendly and professional and attention to detail is second to none. Nothing is ever too much trouble and everything is done with a smile!

This wedding has to be one of our favourites so far – we were booked to play for the Kathryn and Nic’s ceremony, drinks reception and also their wedding breakfast (afternoon tea!)

Luton Hoo Wedding Supplier

Our string quartet enjoyed a gorgeous Luton Hoo spring wedding on 19th March. The wedding season is starting to hot up now!  Our string trio was also out playing for a wedding at Kelmarsh Hall with Eluned and Mike so ‘Team Ariella’ had a very busy day!  I was joined by Liz, Emily and Anne at Luton Hoo and we had a great time playing lots of jazz and pop!

The String Quartet was booked to play for the drinks reception and part of the wedding breakfast of Clayton and Jean.

Ariella Strings are a Luton Hoo Wedding Supplier and we know the venue and staff very well. Today we were very lucky to be joined by another of Luton Hoo’s recommended suppliers – Nigel Crump Photography.  We have worked with Nigel many times over the years and can recommend his services.

Clayton and Jean had a Church wedding and were continuing their celebrations at Luton Hoo. We were provided background music for their guests arriving and while they mingled over drinks and canapes!

I thought I would share some photos of the day…………………!
