We would highly recommend Strings Attached.
It’s hard to remember now, but there was a time a few months ago when the weather was warm, the flowers were blooming and the wedding season was at its peak. The end of June is always a lovely time for a wedding, but this day at Askham Hall was absolutely spectacular!
This was a perfect example of the kind of wedding where Strings Attached can really shine. A hybrid of a string quartet and an acoustic band, they are equally at home singing pop covers as they are playing instrumental versions of the classics. That’s why Heidy and David asked for violin and cello during the outdoor ceremony, with the full band coming together afterwards for the drinks reception. It was the perfect balance of refined elegance and casual fun.
For the entrance of the bride, Ben and Ellie played a beautiful instrumental cover of Moon River, which went down a treat. Before the ceremony and during the signing of the register, they performed various instrumental tunes as background music. Later, with Alice on keys and lead vocals and Pete on guitar, we played a set of upbeat acoustic covers while guests sipped Pimm’s and fresh coconut water! The entire day was a gorgeous blend of British and Indonesian culture.
We hadn’t been to this Penrith wedding venue before, but Askham Hall absolutely blew us away. It’s a beautiful old building that’s incredibly grand but also feels intimate and homely. The grounds are stunning, and made the ideal place for a ceremony and drinks reception on a sunny day like this, especially with live acoustic music providing the soundtrack.
Here’s a review that the happy couple sent us after the wedding. Congratulations Heidy and David, we’re so glad we could make your day extra special!
We just want to say a massive thank you to Pete and the team from String Attached for performing beautifully at our wedding reception. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the music and it created a lovely atmosphere. We really loved the instrumental song that they played for the ceremony. Pete has been very responsive and helpful throughout the booking process. We would highly recommend Strings Attached.
