Stephanie and James’s wedding ceremony at the Orchardview Wedding and Conference Center, September 29, 2012, violin and cello duo, Ottawa ON

Stephanie ad James has a classically beautiful wedding ceremony held at the outdoor ceremony site at the Orchard View wedding and conference center in Ottawa. Prior to the start of the ceremony our violinist and cellist performed a selection of light classical music as guests were taking and taking their seats. When it was time to start the ceremony, the string duo started with the first of the bride and grooms music choices: Bach Air. This music was performed as the bridesmaids walked down the aisle. For the bride, we played Pachelbel Canon in D. The signing of the marriage register was set to Vivaldi’s Winter from the four seasons—a popular choice that works well for shorter signings. The recessional was Charpentier’s Prelude from Te Deum and rounded out a wonderful ceremony.

Ashley and Sean’s wedding at St Mary Immaculate Church, September 29, 2012, string trio, Richmond Hill, ON

Duo d’Amore’s string trio of violin, viola and cello performed for this wedding ceremony at St Mary Immaculate Church. As the ceremony was Catholic, our musicians were able to perform the great standards of the wedding repertoire and really fill the Church with the beautiful, full, expansive sound of the string instruments. After the prelude music, we performed Bach Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring for the five bridesmaids, switching to Pachelbel Canon, after the bridesmaids had taken their place at the front, and as the bride walked down the aisle for her processional. Signing music was very well chosen, as it was the classic Ave Maria. The recessional music is always bright lively and upbeat and for the is the couple walked out to Mendelssohn’s wedding March.

Amber and Ryan’s wedding ceremony at Triwood community center, Collingwood hall, September 29, 2012, string trio, Calgary AB

Amber and Ryan and a lovely wedding at the Triwood community center. They hired our string trio to perform a selection of classical baroque music for the major parts of the ceremony, and then added a modern song at the end, which is trending at the moment. (and it’s a great idea!). The Community center has a great space to perform in, and because of the wood ceiling and the concrete floors this created a very live acoustic for the musicians and of course the guests. Once again, Duo d’Amore was thrilled to be a part of such a gorgeous wedding ceremony. Congratulations Amber and Ryan.

Ben and Patrick’s wedding ceremony at Langdon Hall, September 29, 2012, violin and cello duo, Cambridge ON

Ben and Patrick’s wedding at Langdon Hall combined the historic and classical elegance of Langdon Hall with modern and contemporary wedding ceremony music. As guest were arriving our violinist and cellist performed a number o pop songs to set the mood for the ceremony. Ban and Patrick chose a variety of great music and the guests really appreciated hearing the string ensemble play something that was a bit out oft the ordinary. For the start of the ceremony, the grooms walked down to the theme from Gabriel’s Oboe by Enrico Morricone. This is a lovly touch and worked so well. The signing music was River Flows In You by Yiruma, and this was a little more relaxed and as the title suggests, it had a very nice flow to it. The recessional was more upbeat and changing from the more modern, was actually classical, and Handel’s Hornpipe from the Water music was a great choice to finish the ceremony—it is bright happy and has lots of energy. Congratulations!

Prelude:

Make You Feel My Love - Adele
I will Remember You - Sarah McLachlan
Hallelujah – Leonard Cohen
Halo – Beyonce

Ceremony:

Processional: Gabriels Oboe, Theme- Morricone
Signing: River Flows In You – Yiruma
Recessional: Hornpipe from the Water Music – Handel
