Manor House Music consists of some of the UK’s finest wedding musicians, having performed for over 700 weddings, corporate events and private functions as a string quartet and string duo. We combine a high quality of musical performance with a large repertoire of dynamic arrangements and a desire to work closely with clients to ensure that every detail is just right for your event.

The group offer a vast range of music suitable for most types of wedding entertainment. Our rock and pop music for string quartet and duo has amazed guests with its sheer power and rhythmic intricacy, bringing alive many of the greatest hits of the last six decades or so. We are equally at home in sets of jazz and light music, film and T.V. favourites, through to folk, traditional Jewish and even Viennese music. We also provide a service where a special piece of music can be arranged specifically for your occasion.

We realise that every wedding day is unique and that each one will require special musical planning. Some couples favour a more ‘hands on’ approach, selecting each individual piece of music to be performed, whilst others are happy for us to put together a programme of music to suit their needs. Whichever approach you prefer, clients can be assured of a high standard of musicianship, making the music a memorable feature of your special day, from the bridal entrance music through to the wedding breakfast.

As well as performing as a wedding string quartet, the group also provide a string duo - ideal for clients seeking a more affordable option whilst retaining a high level of performance. We offer a 250-strong selection of music, all of which sounds surprisingly full, capturing the essence of each piece perfectly.

Although we are a Buckinghamshire string quartet and duo, we regularly travel to play for weddings throughout the Home Counties, the South East of England, London and the Midlands, providing music for wedding venues in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, London, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, Berkshire, Surrey, Hampshire, East Sussex, West Sussex, Kent, Suffolk, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Warwickshire and Leicestershire.

Our string duo starts from £360 for two hours of playing and the cost of a string quartet starts from £630, again for a two hour booking. We are also able to spread our playing over a greater period of time (such as 2 hours playing spread over 3 hours), which is ideal in situations where continuous music isn't required. This is charged at an additional £20 an hour for the duo and £40 an hour for the quartet.

Whatever your requirements may be, the group will work with you to make the music a real highlight of your event.

Hi Vaughan, thank you so so much for playing at our wedding in September this year, you both played absolutely amazingly, it was everything I could've hoped for on my wedding day and more!!
All my friends and family commented the whole day about the beautiful classical music you played during the ceremony and everyone loved the recent pop/rock music played during the meal.
I will be recommending you to anyone and everyone!
Thank you once again for making mine and my husbands wedding day that bit more special!

Hi Vaughan

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for yesterday. You both played beautifully and it really made the party. We had so many wonderful comments and everyone including my Mum really enjoyed it. Mum especially enjoyed 'her' song! We could not have asked for more.

I cannot thank you enough and would not hesitate to recommend you to family and friends. If we ever need music again for an event I will be in touch!

Thank you so much,


Naomi Monk

Thank you for performing at our wedding, you were wonderful and all of our guests are still talking about how fantastic you were.

Vaughan from Manor House Music was incredibly kind and helpful, we had a number of lovely phone conversations where we talked through our music choices, he put me at ease by guiding me in making selections appropriate for the church and the venue.

We had the string quartet throughout the day and this was utterly perfect for us, I wish I’d had more opportunity to stop and listen. Our guests who were able to take the time, were extremely complimentary.

Thank you once again for a beautiful performance that will always be remembered.

Manor House Music Q&A

Manor House Music Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

I love the reactions of delight from brides and grooms when they hear the string quartet or string duo perform for their special day. I love the guests who seemingly stop in their tracks.....only to recognise a favourite rock or pop song played by an unexpected combination of instruments (I'll never forget one wedding where a gentleman's jaw literally dropped when he heard us strike up Guns 'n' Roses 'Sweet Child O' Mine!). And I love the interaction with guests, many of whom have a specific memory triggered by a piece of music we've played.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I played for my sister's wedding back in 2004 and she didn't want any classical music. When I asked her what she did want, she replied 'Abba'! I couldn't find any sheet music for any of the Abba songs for string quartet so arranged them all myself. Now I've arranged over 350 pieces of music, everything from Beyoncé to Buddy Holly to the James Bond theme! It makes for a varied playlist which clients have great fun choosing from and as such, each event becomes a unique musical occasion.

Why should our clients choose you?

We are committed to making each event and wedding a special occasion and pride ourselves in our efficient response to enquiries. We can help clients with every aspect of their music selection for their special day and pay great attention to detail, so nothing is overlooked. We perform with energy and a high degree of accuracy, bringing the music alive with a repertoire of some 800 pieces of music that give clients a fantastic range of music to choose from.
