 “Thank you for the beautiful performance! “ Veronique, bride

This was our first time performing at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church in Ottawa for a wedding ceremony. The couple booked the violin and cello duo to perform for their ceremony, and as they had a full mass, they were able make a great use of Duo d’Amore, as we performed at a number of different points in the wedding ceremony. The couple selected very traditional music for the wedding and were very happy with our performance. Congratulations!

 We have performed at St Anthony’s Church many times, and it is a lovely location to get married, and the staff at the church are always very helpful, not to mention kind and appreciative of our music!

Lisa and Alexandre’s wedding ceremony there on the 28th of September was a very classic wedding ceremony with songs that are often performed at weddings. We love performing at weddings like these! It’s amazing how many times we have performed songs like The Wagner Bridal Chorus and Ave Maria to name a few, and it is always amazing that each time is different, and each wedding demands a lot of attention and unspoken communication with the musicians as we perform to make sure that songs begin and end at the most appropriate time. This is one of the joys of performing weddings, and we love this aspect of matching our playing and watching the guests and the bride and the priest who we have worked with in the past to deliver not just a solid performance, but one that is in tune with the surroundings, the type of wedding and the wishes of our clients. This is just one of the elements that make’s Duo d’Amore special as a wedding ensemble in Ottawa, and we are luck and fortunate to work with clients who trust us, trust our ability and know that we love what we do, and that this feeling comes out in our performance, our attitude and is transferred to the guests and everyone at the wedding to add to the joy associated with a marriage.

Rockcliffe Park is a great location for a wedding ceremony in Ottawa, and our string ensemble loves to perform here. Brenda and Brian’s wedding was elegant and refined and not overdone or fussy—the decorations were sparse, but everything had it’s place and was there for a reason. The music for the ceremony was on the one hand, classical and sophisticated, while at the same time is was also somewhat intimate, as well as being full and rich. The processional began with Handel’s Air from the water music—quite a stately beginning to the wedding, which flowed right into Bach’s Jesu Joy from the water music. These two songs work very well together, as the contrast between them makes them even more interesting. The signing music was another piece by Bach, and to complete the ceremony our string players performed the loud and energetic Trumpet Voluntary.

Processional:

1. Handel - Air from Water Music

2. Bach - Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring

Signing:

Bach - Wachet Auf

Recessional:

Clarke - Trumpet Voluntary

We were quite exited to perform for this wedding ceremony at the very popular Pavilion at Rockcliffe Park. This wedding ceremony perfectly evoked the new attitude to wedding ceremony music, not just in Ottawa, but across the country. Because of the more inclusive and related rules of Churches and in this case officiant, brides and grooms can choose from a much wider ranger of music, to reflect not only the occasion or event, but themselves as a couple.

This wedding began in with very traditional music: Pachelbel canon for the bridesmaids, and attendants, followed by Wagner’s Bridal Chorus (here comes the bride). From the signing onwards, the theme shifted to a modern outlook, with A Thousand Years by Christina Perry and Viva la Vida by Coldplay, with many great and enthusiastic comments from the guests.
