We always like performing at Strathmere Inn, as the staff are so nice and accommodating, and Alex and Tanya’s wedding was no exception. We started the ceremony with the U2 classic All I want is you—this made the bride’s entrance quite special, as it is easy to make a grand entrance with this music as the soundtrack. For the signing of the register, our violinist and cellist performed Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling In Love. The ceremony ended with raucous applause to Beautiful Day, also by U2. We also performed an interesting variety of upbeat music during the cocktail reception following the wedding ceremony.

Our string ensembles work hard to play for many events in Ottawa, and apart from a few venues just outside the city, the Museum of Nature is among the nicest venues for a beautiful wedding ceremony. This ceremony was being held on the second floor of the Museum the Queen's lantern room, and was classic from start to finish. For the processional our violin and cello duo performed Pachelbel's Canon in D, leading onto a soft and contemplative rendition of Bach’s Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring as the license was being signed, and ending on a joyful note with Charpentier Prelude from Te Deum.

Duo d’Amore performed a beautiful ceremony and cocktail reception at the herb Garden in Almonte, ON. This venue is just a few minutes outside of Ottawa, and made for a tranquil and memorable occasion. Pachelbel Canon in D was performed as the bride walked in the lush grass towards the groom, at the elegant, white Victorian gazebo. Bach’s Wachet Auf and Handel’s Hornpipe followed for the signing and recessional. After the ceremony, the cocktail reception was held outdoors. Our violinist and cellist performed under the porch area of an old log cabin, and received many enthusiastic comments from the guests. One again, it was a pleasure to perform at such a lovely outdoor wedding ceremony and reception. Congratulations Shandi and Ryan!
