Rockbeare Wedding with Exe Valley String Quartet

What a lovely day for an Easter wedding at the beautiful Rockbeare Manor with the Exe Valley String Quartet - one of our regular venues. Congratulations Laura and John on your wedding day. Very contemporary feel with a film flavour as well. 'A Million Dreams' to enter, 'Somebody to love' (Queen) and You only twice (OO7) for the signing and 'Dont stop believing' to exit. We also got to play some of our new tunes including Shotgun and Jurassic Park!

Exe Valley Strings at stunning Bovey Castle

I spent the afternoon today with the amazing Exe Valley String Quartet at Bovey Castle playing for their open day.  We play at this beautiful wedding venue just on the edge of Dartmoor a lot as we are on their recommended list of suppliers.  This is a 5* venue with all the trimmings as you can see from the pictures.  We played in the stunning Cathedral Room where all the big weddings take place.  This is a venue where we play a lot of our classical music repertoire which is always lovely.  We had lots of people complimenting us on our playing and lots of visitors finding out how to book us for their weddings later this year and in 2020.  This is a special venue for the quartet as in May 2017 we were selected to play for the wedding of Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black which is still up there as a highlight for us as an ensemble.

The Moorland Hotel Wedding Fayre

 

I spent the afternoon in the very beautiful surroundings of Haytor on Dartmoor.  I was playing at the wedding fayre at the Moorland Hotel right opposite Haytor rocks!  I took the piano, violin and electric violin and played a wide range of musical genres.  It was nice to play some of the music that I dont normally get asked to play.  Bohemian Rhapsody on electric violin went down very well with the locals!!  Thanks to Chic Elite for hosting the wedding fayre.
