Ryan & Darcie, Gellifawr 2023

Gellifawr Woodland Retreat | 17th February 2023


We were absolutely honoured to be part of this special day, filled with so much love, emotion and positive energy. Ryan, Darcie, all of their guests and all of the suppliers were absolutely wonderful and creating the soundtrack for their ceremony and drinks reception was a pleasure!

 


When Ryan and Darcie got in touch in 2022, we knew that this was going to be a special wedding and one we would be grateful to have been a part of. The pair entered a competition to win their wedding through The Dancing Daffodil, run by the incredible Rachel Jenkins, who sold tickets to the raffle to raise money for Olivia Finch's Fight, a charity supporting the care of young Olivia Finch.


After winning the raffle, filled with tears of excitement, they got in touch straight away and knew exactly what they wanted for their music.


In the surroundings of the beautiful Gellifawr Woodland Retreat, our string quartet provided the soundtrack for the most gorgeous ceremony, oozing with love and covered in breathtaking blooms from The Dancing Daffodil.



 

Song Choices



Ryan and Darcie had a lot of special songs to choose from that meant a lot to them and their families, and Ryan and his best man/ brother requested for us to play One Day Like this - Elbow whilst guests were being seated and they awaited the ceremony's start. Ryan, his brother and all of their family sang along, cried a little bit, and were so grateful for our rendition of a song that was really close to their hearts, it was truly a special moment.


For bridal entry, the couple chose Somewhere Only We Know, and boy, were there some tears in the room when Darcie made her entrance to this emotional string quartet version of such a beautiful song!


Once the emotional ceremony was concluded, the string quartet played Bittersweet Symphony as the guests celebrated and headed out of the ceremony room - it was incredibly atmospheric and we were all even a little emotional ourselves!


 

Onto the drinks reception . . .


From the ceremony, we headed into the bar area to set up for the drinks reception, where we played upbeat arrangements of popular music for string quartet from Coldplay to Bastille to Rihanna and everything in between. The atmosphere was unbeatable and Ryan & Darcie's guests were so complimentary of the string quartet.




 

Their words, not ours . . .


"The Quartet were absolutely fantastic throughout our special day, playing stunning twists of modern songs for our ceremony and drinks reception. They really are sensational, if you're thinking of booking you will not be disappointed"
