Kristen + Andrew’s wedding ceremony at Graydon Hall, July 16, 2016, Toronto wedding ceremony music

This wedding at Graydon Hall was absolutely stunning, and we were honored to be a part of it.  We had a really fun time talking about song selections for the ceremony, and we came up with an excellent grouping of songs to fit each part of the ceremony perfectly. The music was performed by Duo d’Amore’s string trio and we received many really nice comments from the guests.

Rachel and Rohann’s wedding ceremony Saturday May 21, 2016 at Sunnybrook Estates, violin and cello duo

 

“Thank you so much for all your help and your well wishes! The music was beautiful!” Rachel, bride

 

 

Rachel and Rohann’s wedding was simply inspiring-beautiful weather, gorgeous venue, and an incredible couple!  Amazing photos are available at: http://www.gillianfoster.ca/estates-of-sunnybrook-wedding/

There is something about a spring wedding that is just so life affirming, everything is green and fresh and wonderfully bright. The ceremony took place at the McLean House of Sunnybrook estates on the morning of May 21. This is a venue that we are very familiar with, and it was great to be back.  In speaking to Rachel about the music selections, she and Rohann came up with a very interesting, and eclectic combination of songs, which fit the parts of the ceremony extremely well:


Prelude: Here Comes the Sun: The Beatles
Marry You: Bruno Mars
Sweet Child o Mine: Guns n Roses
All You Need is Love: The Beatles
Viva la Vida: Coldplay

Processional (Includes Just Groom's Parents and Groom):
Can't Help Falling in Love: Elvis

Hanna + Azhar’s wedding ceremony and cocktail reception at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club, May 23, 2015, violin and cello duo, Toronto wedding musicians

This wedding took place at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club, on Toronto Island, and Duo d’Amore was excited and honoured to be a part of such a beautiful day. To add to the beauty and seamlessness the event was flawlessly planned by Shealyn Angus of Bliss Events (whom we work with as often and possible). From the musical side of things, which is of course our specialty, we had the opportunity to work with the bride in choosing the music for the ceremony:

Bridesmaids Processional: Bach Air 

Bride: A Thousand Years

Signing: Bach Jesu Joy of Mans Desiring

Recessional: Beautiful Day

Theses selections work really well together, as the classical selections played and compared and contrasted with the more modern songs, to give the whole ceremony an air of tradition, complemented by a more modern sound. After the ceremony, the string duet gracefully switched locations to where the cocktail reception was taking place, and continued to play. Just before their departure, the bride thanked them for a great job.
