Autumn and Winter (Christmas!) Weddings…

With the new weather we are experiencing it feels like our summer wedding season is over! We have 3 more weddings this month, a few autumn weddings next month and then we are suddenly into Christmas weddings and events. We love playing seasonal repertoire and there is something rather special about having a Christmas Carol in for church weddings in place of a hymn. Please click on our Christmas repertoire to find out what we have.

HEAR US LIVE – Saturday 11th October 1-2.30pm at Granvilles Brasserie

We are very pleased to announce that Highly Strung is having their next HEAR US LIVE session on Saturday 11th October 2014 at Granvilles in Stone, Staffordshire. Granvilles is widely regarded as being Staffordshire’s best know live music venue.

Calling all brides & grooms (new & old!!), clients, colleagues, family and friends to come along and hear us play – and why not request a song….

We will be playing 1pm-2.30pm and we will be free to talk to you afterwards.

Goosedale Conference and Banqueting & Ringwood Hall weddings this weekend

We have 2 weddings this weekend – the long awaited wedding of Nat & Adam at Goosedale and a summer Saturday wedding at Ringwood Hall.

Hope this beautiful weather holds :-)

June is upon us….

We have just finished a busy weekend of weddings – a beautifully intimate wedding at the George in Stamford on Friday, a wedding at Malmaison in Birmingham on Saturday and a wedding (plus a groom’s 60th birthday) on Sunday at the Priest House in Castle Donington.

The rest of the month is equally as busy for the quartet with weddings at the West Retford Hotel, a few weddings at Mosborough Hall, Ardencote Manor, Swinfen Hall, Morley Hayes and a reception for a clinical society at Nottingham University.
