Hilary and Joseph’s wedding ceremony at First Unitarian Congregation, November 2, 2013, violin and cello duo, Ottawa ON

"The music was beautiful, perfectly timed, and really was just the right addition to our ceremony. Thank you for making it so easy and well-coordinated!" Hilary and Joseph, bride and groom

The music choices for Hilary and Joseph’s wedding were excellent, and the couple really chose well. The duo chose a variety of classical music during the prelude as guests were chatting and taking their seats. For the processional, as Hilary had a very small wedding party (just 1 maid of honor) the short and cheerful Prelude from Te Deum by Charpentier was a natural fit. The signing music was Bach’s Sleepers Awake, which is actually a less common choice, but one of our favorites to play. The violin and cello each have distinct melodies that weave in and out while maintaining a great pulse. Switching to modern music for the recessional is always fun, and it brides the gap between the church ceremony and the reception to follow; for this section, our violinist and cellist performed Here Comes the Sun, for a beautiful and happy finale to the wedding ceremony.

Krista and Tristan’s wedding ceremony at Hauser Hall, September 28, 2013, violin and cello duo, Heidelberg ON

This wedding took place just outside of Waterloo, in the small town of Heidelberg. The venue is the Hauser Hall, and it is the perfect venue for more intimate weddings and events with around 100 or so guests. For this ceremony we performed a mixture of classical and pop music, with slightly more pop music than classical, and the guests really enjoyed our performance. As guests we arriving and being seated, we performed mostly light classical music, a s we find that this sets a calming mod, and as the music is on the quiet side, guests have the opportunity to get settled and converse with one another in a pleasant atmosphere, At the start of the ceremony we performed Mouret Rondeau, which immediately adds a very stately presence and is the perfect signal that the wedding has officially started. The next point in the wedding ceremony where the violin and cello duo performs it typically during the signing. As this is a great time for reflection, not to mention photos, the music for this part of the wedding is a bit quieter, and the couple chose Everlong by the Foo Fighters. After the quiet music during the signing we switched to something loud, and exciting for the recessional, and ended with the popular Here Comes The Sun by the Beatles.

Kristin and Jamie’s wedding ceremony and reception at the Rosewater restaurant, October 13, 2012, violin and cello duo, Toronto ON

“I just wanted to send you a note thanking you and the musicians who performed on my wedding day. They were FANTASTIC - I heard such great compliments about their music. Clair De Lune and the Beatles "Love" both sounded so beautiful. Everything sounded perfect. Thank you again, it was wonderful working with you.“Kristin, bride

This couple chose a great mix of music—starting with classical music from the baroque period to set the tone of the event during the bridesmaids and bridal processional. The signing music moved ahead to the romantic period with Claude Debussy’s Claire de Lune—a piano piece arranged for the violin and cello duo. As it is soft and flowing it worked very well during the contemplative signing of the register. As the couple exited the Rosewater room, the violinist and cellist performed the bright and contemporary All you Need is Love by the Beatles, and to round out the wedding, performed two pieces by Handel that juxtaposed the Beatles in a great way, as both of these songs are quite loud, upbeat and fun.

Processionals: Bach-Gounod: Ave Maria and Bach: Air

Signing: Debussy: Claire de Lune

Recessional: All you Need is Love

Guests exit: Handel La Rejouissance and Hornpipe

Lidia and Allessandro’s wedding ceremony, September 15, 2012, string trio, St Hyacinth Parish Ottawa ON

This wedding was wonderful, but at the same time quite rare, as it was church wedding with an unusual selection of ceremony music. The ceremony started out with popular selections, which many churches do not allow, and moved into the more familiar classical music that is typical of a church wedding ceremony. We really enjoyed playing the ceremony, and received many positive comments.

Bridal Party: Beatles: All You Need is Love

Bride: Halo Beyonce

Signing: Bach Gonoud Ave Maria

Preperation of the gifts: Bach: Wachet Auf Sleepers Awake)

Communion: The Prayer
