This wedding, held at the Gardiner Museum, was both modern and classic, in equal measure, both as an event in itself and musically. Music was very important to both Kyle’s and they chose a very unique and interesting collection of ceremony songs for their ceremony. As for the instruments, they also chose a unique selection: solo cello, which was quite a bold choice, but it worked very well with their song choices.

During the prelude, the very classical and romantic The Swan was performed. This is an absolutely gorgeous piece of music, written by the French composer Saint-Saens as part of a collection of works scored for various instruments, of which the Swan is one of the most famous components. You can read more about it here

Going from strength to strength, the processional was the prelude from Bach’s Cello suite number 1, and this piece is also a first class solo piece for the cello. During the signing of the register, the tone changed to embrace for contemporary music, with All I Ask of You being performed. And as the couple walked out during the triumphant recessional, the theme from Rhapsody in Blue was performed. All I can say is that we were so delighted to make Kyle and Kyle’s wedding memorable, tying the ceremony together with beautiful music.
