Ottawa Wedding Music

Highlighting Duo d'Amore's live classical and pop string performances at wedding ceremonies and cocktail and dinner receptions in Ottawa including Chelsea QC, Gatineau QC, Kanata, Merrickville, Metcalfe, Montebello QC, Nepean surrounding areas. We perform indoors and outdoors in venues ranging from hotels, golf courses, churches, cathedrals, chapels, inns, restaurants, gazebos, parks, gardens, historic sites, museums, schoolhouses, orchards, 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.

As much as we enjoy performing outdoors for weddings in the summer, it is a real pleasure to perform indoors at church. The other pleasure of the day was helping to make Matthew and Karina’s wedding really special. During the prelude, we selected a number of mellow pieces of classical music, including Bach Air, which somehow has a light summer feel to it. For the attendants Duo d’Amore performed Pachelbel Canon, followed by a special arrangement of an interesting song requested by the bride and groom: Moments with Oliver, which they were thrilled to have performed by the violinist and cellist. The next piece that we performed was Meditation from the Opera Thaïs, by Massenet, and it provide a contrast with the brides processional. Rounding out the ceremony we performed Bach’s Jesu Joy.

Attendants processional – Canon in D
Brides processional – Moments with Oliver
Signing of the registry – Meditation from Thais
Recessional – Jesu Joy of mans desiring

Rhiannon and Ben chose pop music for their ceremony and we were happy to accommodate, as always. The ceremony took place in the Adam room of the Chateau Laurier. The bridesmaids walked down the aisle to “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perry with the bride following with “Kissing You”, otherwise known as the Theme from Romeo and Juliet. As the signing can sometimes take five or six minutes, two songs were chosen for this part of the ceremony: “I Won’t Give Up” and “Yellow” by Coldplay. Bruno Mars’ “I Think I Wanna Marry You”, was heard as the recessional.

Sandy and Pawel’s wedding ceremony at Blessed Sacrament Church, violin & cello duo, August 3, 2013, Ottawa ON

The bride and groom were married in the spacious and striking Blessed Sacrament Church in Ottawa. As we have performed at this venue in the past, the ceremony flowed effortlessly. One of the nice things is we were able to include quite a bit of music. As performing music is our passion, and we want to fill the service with music, we thought that the choices and the order of songs worked our perfectly.

1. Vivaldi Winter from the Four Seasons
2. Mouret Rondeau
3. Trumpet Voluntary - Purcell

4. Trumpet Voluntary - Clarke

 

During mass:

1. Bridesmaids: Bach Air on the G string

Rockcliffe Park Pavilion is an ideal spot for live music, especially a wedding ceremony! Our violin and cello duo performed two songs for the processional—one for the bridesmaids (Trumpet Tune) and a separate song for the bride to make her grand entrance (Pachelbel Canon). When the time came for the signing of the register our violinist and cellist performed the wedding classic Ave Maria (the Bach-Gounod version) and quickly switched to Mendelsohn’s wedding March as the newlyweds walked down to aisle.

Processional:

Mothers and Bridesmaids: Purcell Trumpet Tune

Bride: Canon in D

Signing: Bach-Gounod Ave Maria

Recessional: Mendelssohn Wedding March
