Kitchener-Waterloo Wedding Music

Highlighting Duo d'Amore's live classical and pop string performances at wedding ceremonies and cocktail and dinner receptions in Kitchener-Waterloo and surrounding areas including Cambridge, Elora, Fergus, Guelph, Heidelberg, New Hamburg and  St Jacobs. 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 and community Halls. A full range of string ensembles: solo violinists and cello players, string duos, string trios and string quartets.

Our string ensemble has performed at the Cambridge Mill for many years, but it was our first time performing in the brand new chapel, which is beautiful. The music the clients selected for the ceremony was an all classical program, combining traditional wedding music, with a slight twist at the end that everyone enjoyed. Before the ceremony stated our violinist and cellist performed a mixture of light classical music for the guest seating. With the start of the ceremony, the first piece performed was Bach’s Air on the G string as the bridal party walked up the aisle. This is an excellent choice for the bridesmaids, as the music is well known, as well as light and flowing. The bridal processional was the even more famous Pachelbel Canon in D, and we were happy to perform it as the bride walked up the aisle. Then came the exchange of rings, vows of the ceremony and the kiss. To make the marriage official, the couple signed the register and we performed another piece by Bach called Jesu Joy of Man’s desiring. Like the bridesmaids music, this piece also has a very nice flow to it. As well it is quite long, but always interesting which makes it a great choice for the signing. The recessional was Vivaldi’s Spring from the Four Seasons, which is always a delight, but especially in October, and even more so for a wedding ceremony as it symbolizes the couple’s rebirth of love for one another through marriage.

Katherine and Daniel’s wedding ceremony at Whistle Bear Golf Course, September 28, 2013, violin & cello duo, Cambridge ON

This wedding had everything going for it: a beautiful couple, a wonderful ceremony at Whistle Bear Golf and Country Club, great weather at the end of September, and of course amazing live music from the Duo d’Amore’s violinist and cellist.

The ceremony music was a particular highlight of this wedding, and the couple chose the ceremony music very well. While the signing and the brides processional were both classical selections, the re was also a modern element to the ceremony as well, s both the music for the bridal party and the recessional were pop hits. This added a nice touch, and blended everything together nicely. We could not have asked for a better day!

Krista and Tristan’s wedding ceremony at Hauser Hall, September 28, 2013, violin and cello duo, Heidelberg ON

This wedding took place just outside of Waterloo, in the small town of Heidelberg. The venue is the Hauser Hall, and it is the perfect venue for more intimate weddings and events with around 100 or so guests. For this ceremony we performed a mixture of classical and pop music, with slightly more pop music than classical, and the guests really enjoyed our performance. As guests we arriving and being seated, we performed mostly light classical music, a s we find that this sets a calming mod, and as the music is on the quiet side, guests have the opportunity to get settled and converse with one another in a pleasant atmosphere, At the start of the ceremony we performed Mouret Rondeau, which immediately adds a very stately presence and is the perfect signal that the wedding has officially started. The next point in the wedding ceremony where the violin and cello duo performs it typically during the signing. As this is a great time for reflection, not to mention photos, the music for this part of the wedding is a bit quieter, and the couple chose Everlong by the Foo Fighters. After the quiet music during the signing we switched to something loud, and exciting for the recessional, and ended with the popular Here Comes The Sun by the Beatles.

Processional: Mouret Rondeau

Signing: Foo Fighters-Everlong

Nicole and Jay’s wedding ceremony at Waterloo Park, solo violin, July 6, 2013, Waterloo ON

 “Everything was awesome, thanks again!” Nicole and Jay

Nicole and Jay requested Pachelbel’s Canon to be performed as the bride walked up the aisle to meet the groom. For everything else she left it up to us, and we chose a number of selections to fit alongside it. The park is a great location for a wedding, as it’s very centrally located, not to mention gorgeous!

After performing in over 1000 wedding ceremonies, it’s so great to be surprised and delighted with performing music. Not just new music, but music arranged in a particular way, perhaps used for a different part of the wedding ceremony that is not so common. This wedding was full of surprises. With music by Enya, The Verve, Guns N’ Roses and the theme to Anne of Green Gables this wedding gave us an exciting surprise and a playlist we won’t soon forget!
