A Beautiful Day at The Old Hall, Ely

It was wonderful to be back at @theoldhall in Ely at the end of July, our first time back since before the first lockdown! We couldn’t resist taking a few snaps of the outdoor ceremony area and grounds – just beautiful! 😍

The Bride asked us to learn a new song for her entrance music, Latch by Sam Smith, we played A Thousand Years by Christina Perri, Perfect by Ed Sheeran and You Are the Reason by Callum Scott for the Signing of the Register and then we played them out to This Will Be Everlasting Love by Natalie Cole. They stopped halfway back up the aisle for a quick group photo and the Bride and Groom couldn’t help having a quick dance to our music. Congratulations guys!

Don’t Play – Anne-Marie x KSI x Digital Farm Animals – Violin & Cello Cover

📸 *video contains flashing images* 📸 Talk about exploring new ways of making music… Everything you hear on this track has been created by us on a violin, cello & electric cello. This is the first time we’ve used our instruments to record a ‘drum track’ for a song. It’s been a very exciting process, to explore the acoustic sounds of the violin & cello in combination with different microphones and electronic effects. If anyone is interested in how we went about creating these percussive sounds on our instruments please do get in touch!

Afterglow – Ed Sheeran Cover (Violin & Cello Wedding Version)

🎻🎶💕 Afterglow – Ed Sheeran Cover (Violin & Cello Wedding Version) 💕🎶🎻

When we first heard this song, we felt an instant connection to the music and lyrics. We felt it was such an emotional song, with many of the lyrics being applicable to the current situation. Immediately we wanted to reach out and connect with all of those individuals who are struggling at the moment; aren’t we all in some way holding on ’til the afterglow? So, as musicians who are stuck at home, we decided to reach out in one of the only ways we can at the moment: by playing, recording & videoing the song. With such luscious harmonies (which lend themselves very well to the violin & cello) it was the perfect song for us to explore further our layered recordings. When making the video we thought it might be interesting to include some clips from ‘behind the scenes’, showing more of our process and how we put the track together with all of the different parts. Also, a debut for our green screen – yay! 😁

Stuck with U – Violin & Cello Cover Ariana Grande & Justin Bieber

Feeling a bit emotional 🥰 Thank you Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber for this amazing song 🙏 Times are difficult and it’s even more important to focus on the positive things in life. We feel incredibly privileged to be able to spend the time ‘stuck’ together making music 🎶

It’s hard work for musicians and other creatives right now, aside from the difficulties caused by losing most of our income, we thrive on performing to audiences and making people happy – it’s one of the things that drives us, and it’s been taken away. BUT, continuing to make music together is keeping us going, and we hope to bring a little happiness to others in the process! 😊

So, do us a favour and give our video a share. Send it to your friends, send it to your family, send it to any key workers you know to brighten their day. Stay safe everyone, we’ll get through this ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜💖

For any brides and grooms struggling to think of music for their big day, we think this could be a really special choice. We can see a lot of brides walking down the aisle to this in the future, it would make amazing entrance music or even a great first dance song.

The Adventures of The Chapel Hill Duo: 2

The Chapel Hill Duo at the Cupid's Autumn Weddings fair at the Springfields event centre.
It’s Wedding fair season and we’ve got some top tips on how to make the most of the Weddings fairs you attend.

This week has certainly been quieter than the last, but by no means less exciting. The one Wedding we played at took place at The Knights Hill Hotel near Kings Lynn, we were booked to play during the Wedding Breakfast and as evening guests arrived.
