Our string duo loves performing at the Old Mill, one of our favorite, and certainly one of the most popular wedding venues in Toronto and the GTA, especially for our string musicians We performed at the Chapel, which is lovely and intimate, and were excited to perform a brand new recently completed song arrangement. As guests began to take their seats, we performed a selection of classical music to help create a nice mood, and them the guests know that the wedding would be starting shortly. For the processional, we performed a very beautiful violin and cello version of the Flower Duet from Lakme by Leo Delibes. This is to our knowledge the first violin and cello arrangement of this work and we were very excited to premiere it at this ceremony. The bride walked down to the Music of the Night from the Phantom of the Opera, which was also magical. The signing was the famous Wachet Auf, or Sleepers Awake, which was a nice classical piece for this part of the ceremony. Finally, Runaway by the Corrs was performed as the bride and groom walked their way back down the aisle. Prelude: Charpentier Prelude and other classical

If there is a trend in the wedding industry, I would say that more and more couples are going outside of the box, and customizing and choosing elements of the wedding, whether flowers, attire, venues, readings and specially music that combines classic elegance with elements of contemporary and popular culture. While there are many more decisions for the clients to make, the result is often spectacular, especially of they have a wedding planner or in our case Duo d’Amore who can help guide them in choosing music so that it has the right fit for the client and for a wedding ceremony. In this respect Danielle and Dany did an excellent job!

Looking at the two modern songs by Enya and the Verve, they have a classical feel to them, but also are different enough to add a bit of additional excitement to the wedding ceremony.

“The music selection worked perfectly! Punctual and everything went smoothly.

Thank you very much.” Alan, Groom

Duo d’Amore has hasd many foreign clients from countries all around the work, for wedding ceremonies, reception, public anrivate and corporat events, and it was especially nice to help Alan and Shizue plan the musical portion of the wedding. The Lake house was the perfoct, intimate venue for the ceremony, and we had a great time performing classicas such as Pachelbel Canon and La Rejouissance, and also the less well known but beautiful M'Appari Tutt'Amor by Flotow" arranged for the violin and cello duo.
