Hamilton Burlington Ancaster Wedding Music

Highlighting Duo d'Amore's live classical and pop string performances at wedding ceremonies and cocktail and dinner receptions in Hamilton and surrounding areas including Ancaster, Brantford, Burlington, Dundas, Puslinch, Stoney Creek, Waterdown. We perform indoors and outdoors in venues ranging from hotels, golf courses, churches, cathedrals, chapels, inns, restaurants, gazebos, parks, gardens, historic sites, museums, backyards, ballrooms, wineries, waterfront, beaches, waterfalls and community and banquet halls. A full range of string ensembles: solo violinists and cello players, string duos, string trios and string quartets.

We were very happy with the performance. I loved having it a part of our big day. Thank you so much. Heather, bride

We had a great time discussing the music selections with Heather for her wedding, and were able to assist her and Philip to create a wonderful soundtrack to their ceremony. The wedding was held at the beautiful Paletta Mansion overlooking Lake Ontario. The music for the ceremony was predominantly made up of classical music selections, except for the signing which was a wonderful departure into a duo of modern songs by Christina Perri and the Beatles. The music was heightened by the wooden floors and the acoustics of the room, bringing a warmth and depth to the sound of the violin and cello.

Danielle and Ryan’s wedding ceremony at the Grand Olympia, February 16, 2014, string trio, Stoney Creek, ON

Our string trio of two violins and cello performed at this wedding held in the Stoney Creek Room of the Grand Olympia in Stoney Creek. The setup of the room was particularly elegant, with the venue obviously thinking a great deal about how to make use of the features of the room. As the space was long and narrow, there was a perfect opportunity to create an aisle for the bridesmaids and the bride to walk down. For the processional we performed the wedding classic Pachelbel canon. For the signing we moved into a more modern song, Today by the Smashing Pumpkins. Originally the bride and groom had also selected a classical piece to be performed if the signing went overtime, but the smashing pumpkins song was the perfect length and ended at just the right moment. The recessional, when the bride and groom walked down the aisle at the end of the ceremony was Don't Stop Believing by Journey, and as it was upbeat, lively and fun, was a great finale to the wedding ceremony.

Processional: Pachelbel’s Canon in D
Signing: Today by Smashing Pumpkins

Lija and Eddie’s wedding ceremony at Liuna Station, violin and cello duo, February 1, 2014, Hamilton ON

We love performing at Liuna station. This heritage building has a huge foyer and it’s a perfect venue for a wedding ceremony and reception, but also for the music, as the sounds fills the room. Eddie and Lija chose an excellent grouping of music for their ceremony. A highlight for us was the sand ceremony, as when we have seen these take place in the past, there are usually two people (typically the bride and groom or mothers for example) hat tip two vessels of sand into a single vessel. This symbolizes the strength of the couples bond and relationship, and it would be as difficult to separate these grains of sand, as it would be for the couple to separate. It’s really beautiful and powerful symbolism. What made this part of their ceremony different is that have a group of ten participating in it, which made it extra special.

This was our first time performing at St Joseph’s Church in Hamilton, and it was a fantastic experience. The church is located in the trendy Locke St., with its interesting shops and great restaurants. Something that made this wedding additionally special for us and of course the guests and bride and groom is that we were able to work with the organist, Stillman Matheson to make the music for the ceremony really stand out. For the ceremony we performed out beautiful list of Romantic Selection that the clients chose from the Guide to Wedding music and Sample programs that we have on our website. Many couples have found it a helpful resource to use when choosing wedding ceremony music, and I’m glad it helped our clients. The program for the wedding ceremony was:
