Marie-Eve and Marc’s wedding ceremony at The Cove, May 31, 2014, violin and cello duo, Westport ON

“Everything was more than perfect! Thank you so much!” Marie-Eve, bride

This was a picture perfect outdoor wedding, as you can see from the photo and if you look at the photos from the very talented Amy Eaton. The weather at The Cove in Westport was perfect, the ambiance, flowers, music—just everything. Marie-Eve and Marc were extremely easy to work with, and they selected warm, spring like music that especially complemented the ceremony. To start the string duo performed Christina Perri’s A Thousand years. In this arrangement the violin has the melody while the cello accompanies, and it is a very effective song for the processional at an outdoor wedding. The signing was Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen, which brings the excitement down considerable, but the romance up a few notches (which of course is important in a wedding ceremony). To conclude the ceremony, the very popular and also romantic by with a bit more of a beat, Somewhere over the Rainbow.

Processional: A Thousand Years, Christina Perri

Signing: Hallelujah, Leonard Cohen

Recessional: Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Katrina and Jeremy’s wedding ceremony at the Fairmont Chateau Montebello, violin and cello duo, April 26, 2014, Montebello QC

This wedding ceremony took place in the tent on site at Chateau Montebello, and the day way lovely! We worked very closely with the wedding planner, Roxanne to make sure that everything was organized, all the t’s were crossed and I’s dotted, and the ceremony was lovely. We performed light classical selections during the prelude before the wedding ceremony. The song selections for the ceremony were very traditional, which makes for an elegant yet warm atmosphere.

 

Processional: Pachelbel Canon

Signing: Bach-Gounod: Ave Maria

Recessional: Mendelsohn: Wedding March

Alaina and Patrick’s wedding ceremony at St Philip’s Roman Catholic Church, January 11, 2014 in Goulbourn ON

 You guys were fantastic and made the ceremony perfect. Thank you very much and we will recommend you to our friends. Alaina and Patrick

The bride and groom were looking for an upbeat and fun selection of music to accompany their wedding ceremony, and they chose a number of great songs, which Duo d’Amore had a great time performing.

As the guests were arriving, they selected songs that many guests would know, by John Lennon (Imagine)

And Louis Armstrong (What A Wonderful World) to more modern pop songs like Eric Clapton’s Wonderful Tonight and Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing. This really set the mood for the ceremony

For the bridesmaids processional, the Beatles Here comes the Sun was performed, followed by the very beautiful A Thousand Years by Christina Perri. This worked so well, and I am sure that A Thousand Years will be come a wedding ceremony classic. I also enjoyed the paring of this song with the previous song. Both songs are quite different and do a great job of letting the guests and family know that the bride is about to walk down to aisle.

For the signing the couple chose two songs: My eyes adore you and Somewhere over the rainbow, and the recessional, as the bride and groom were exiting was Bittersweet Symphony, which is loud and has a strong beat which is perfect for the end of the ceremony.

Prelude:

Time to say goodbye

What a wonderful world

Wonderful Tonight

Don't stop believing

Imagine

Hallelujah

Ceremony:

Bridesmaids Processional - Here comes the sun

Bride Processional - A thousand years

Signing - My eyes adore you and Somewhere over the Rainbow

Recessional - Bittersweet Symphony

Jennifer and Richard’s wedding ceremony, December 21, 2013, violin and cello duo at Strathmere Inn, North Gower ON

“Great music provided for our wedding ceremony, thank you! Jennifer, bride

Although summer weddings are beautiful, it is always nice to perform at a winter wedding ceremony at Strathmere Inn. This was made even more special and classic by the classical music selections the couple chose for their ceremony. Starting with the maid of honor and flower girls and continuing on to the bridal entrance, the duo performed Pachelbel’s Canon in D. The signing was many people’s top choice: Bach-Gounod’s Ave Maria, and was followed by the sprightly Clarke Trumpet Voluntary. Our thanks and congratulations to the beautiful couple as well a Strathmere Inn, and the stunning photos by photographer Andrew Van Beek.
