Sopwell House – Great Gatsby

On 24th October Ariella String Trio were booked to play for the wedding of Jon and Victoria. The venue was Sopwell House in St Albans. We have played at Sopwell House quite a few times, it’s not too far from where we live. It was lovely to be back. Thanks to all the staff at Sopwell for looking after us so well!

I just had to share this wedding with you as the theme was Great Gatsby and the venue was dressed brilliantly!!

The wedding ceremony began at 4.30pm with us playing for the guests who were assembling from 4pm. The music for the ceremony was all classical and Victoria walked in to the traditional Wagner Bridal Chorus.

After we were all set up I nipped to have a look at the room where the wedding breakfast was going to take place and it was simply amazing! LOOK!!

Real weddings – Dodmoor House

On 3rd October 2015 Ariella String Trio had the pleasure of playing for the wedding of Nicky and Lee at one of our favourite wedding venues, Dodmoor House.

We are very privileged to be one of the recommended suppliers for Dodmoor House – we know the staff and venue very well and can’t recommend them highly enough!

Although it was Autumn we were lucky with the weather and it wasn’t too cold! All the guests were able to enjoy their drinks outside and we had lots of requests for pop and rock, especially Metallica!!!

Our Bride and Groom, Nicky and Lee, were absolutely lovely – a real pleasure to work with and they had chosen some fab music! Their guests thought it was amazing that we were playing all sorts of pop and rock music!

Here are some photos I took of the wedding – some lovely work from the wedding suppliers the couple had chosen. We are really lucky to get to see the finished results of each of our couples’ months of planning!

The beautiful cake was created by Shelly from “La Belle Cake Company” who we have had the pleasure of working with many times!

Venue dressing was by Gems Celebrations – Wedding and Event Hire. We work with this company often and I am always blown away by how they transform venues! Totally professional, this company is no.1 on our recommended list!

 

I must admit to being a little biased about this as purple is my FAVOURITE colour!!

The flowers were beautifully arranged by “By Arrangement Floristry” 

The photographer was Rob Lunan of Welcome Photography  – lovely to finally meet him!

We were very well looked after by Delicious Catering a company we had never worked with before but our sarnies were LOVELY!! Thank you!

Of course, no wedding is ever complete at Dodmoor without the lovely Geoffrey who loves us to fuss her! She is a great favourite especially with the children at weddings!

Sometimes, at weddings and events, we get to see some really unusual sights! Thought I would share this lady’s handbag with you! I have a friend who loves PUGS so I took this photo for her! Hope you enjoy!!

 

Until next time…………………!!

Horwood House Spring Wedding

On 28th March Ariella string trio was booked to play for the wedding of Gemma and Wendy at Horwood House in Buckinghamshire.

After our usual quiet winter period this wedding was the first of the 2015 spring season, so it was lovely to kick off playing at Horwood House where we are the recommended string group.

We were greeted by Toastmaster, Stuart Holton who we have worked with many times. He was there to make sure the day ran smoothly.

Gemma and Wendy are a lovely couple who had been an absolute pleasure to work with in the run up to their big day. The Bridal party entrance music was the very romantic “She” from the movie “Nottinghill” – a lovely choice.

Most of the suppliers the couple had chosen were local to Horwood House and we have worked with them many times. We do love it when we work with suppliers we know and trust!
