Alicia + John’s wedding ceremony at Starling Lane Vineyard July 9, 2016, Victoria BC wedding ceremony music

Our string ensembles have had the pleasure of performing at Starling Lane Vineyard several times in the past, and we are happy to be back. Working with Alicia on choosing the music was a pleasure—one of the songs that she particularly wanted during the ceremony was Bridge over Troubled Water, and were extremely happy to be able to incorporate this songs during the ceremony. The signing portion was the perfect place to perform this song, and it was followed beautifully by the recessional music with concluded the ceremony sin such a lovely way.

Kristina and Dean’s wedding ceremony at The Beach House, June 7, 2014, violin and cello duo, Victoria BC

“Thank you! Your musicians were wonderful, and we are grateful that they could work in a composition of You Hand in Mine which was beautiful, and exactly how we pictured Kristina's walk down the aisle. Take care, and thanks again!” Dean & Kristina, bride and groom

This Victoria BC wedding combined classical elegance with a custom modern arrangement, and a fun upbeat recessional, for an amazing combined effect. Our violinist and cellist had a lot of fun performing these musical selections at The Beach House, and that really came through in the performance, as it created a great vibe, hovering between traditional classical music, and an unexpected modern twist, something that, not to brag, but we are very good at!

It was a true pleasure for Duo d’Amore to perform, and we look forward to returning to this beautiful location in the future. Our congratulations to the bride and groom, as well!

Bridesmaid processional: Bach - Air on the G String

Bridal processional: Exposions in the Sky - Your Hand in Mine

Kim and Reinhold’s wedding ceremony in the Spanish Ballroom of the Rosewood Hotel Georgia, violin and cello duo, April 26, 2014, Vancouver, BC

 

 “It was absolutely lovely – Duo d’Amore were very good. Thank you so much!” Kim and Reinhold

 

 

Working with Kim and Reinhold to make sure their wedding was spectacular was amazing, and easy! They wanted a ceremony that was, in Kim’s words “elegant and understated, simple and beautiful.” Using our website as a guide and listening to our samples, they came up with wonderful wedding ceremony music selections, and found the whole process to be easy. Here is the ceremony music they chose for the violinist and cellist to perform:

 

 

 

Bridesmaids processional: Bach - Air on a G string

Bride's processional: Bach - Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring

Signing: Vivaldi - Winter from Four Seasons

Recessional: Handel - La Rejouissance

 

 

All of these selections really work well in a room like the Spanish Ballroom, letting the sound of the violin and cello fill the room, and really bloom. Great music for a great couple!

We really enjoyed working with Carly and Brendan, as there was a spirit of fun and excitement around their wedding, which seemed to be captured in the music for the wedding day. One thing that they decided upon that has worked well in the past is they let us pick part of the music as a surprise. For the songs they selected, they picked a great mix of upbeat pop and contemporary songs as well as a classical favorite that added a great touch to complete the ceremony. Congratulations.
