Is there anything more perfect than listening to a London jazz band on a 30-degree English summer day? This happy couple couldn’t have chosen a better setting for their celebrations.
This beautiful summer wedding at Inverforth House was serenaded by Silk Street’s 1920s London jazz band, Silk Street Jazz. The spacious grounds and unbeatable sunshine made it a garden party their guests will never forget.

An English garden party like no other
Inverforth House is a palatial, Grade II listed house overlooking Hampstead Heath in north London. It was built in 1895 and still holds onto most of its original 19th Century features. The manicured lawns and white pillars are an unbeatable backdrop for wedding photos.
This was a big wedding that managed to retain a lot of intimacy. 250 guests were hosted in the house for the ceremony and under a large marquee in the garden during the reception. They were entertained all night by a live band and gospel choir.
On the menu were elegant canapés (served in classic China tea cups!) and champagne, followed by beef and watercress salad in the evening.
Silk Street Jazz play toe-tapping jazz classics
Silk Street Jazz is one of Silk Street’s most popular acts and a London jazz band with serious performing chops. Their upbeat dixie jazz fills the room and is truly authentic. Just like this happy couple, you’ll love their repertoire of jazz classics. A wedding as lively as this needed music to match!
On the day, Silk Street Jazz’s line-up included musicians playing the banjo, clarinet, sousaphone, trombone, and singing live vocals too. The band performed as guests arrived at the front of house, setting the tone for the whole day. They also serenaded guests on the lawns after the ceremony while they played a few games of croquet and enjoyed their champagne.
