Michelle and Jeff’s wedding ceremony at the Galt Country Club, violin and cello duo, May 25, 2013, Cambridge ON

After performing in over 1000 wedding ceremonies, it’s so great to be surprised and delighted with performing music. Not just new music, but music arranged in a particular way, perhaps used for a different part of the wedding ceremony that is not so common. This wedding was full of surprises. With music by Enya, The Verve, Guns N’ Roses and the theme to Anne of Green Gables this wedding gave us an exciting surprise and a playlist we won’t soon forget!

Iva and Mike’s wedding ceremony at Our Lady of M Bistrica Church, violin and cello duo, May 25, Calgary AB

Our clients were married at a beautiful Croatian Church in Calgary, and chose their ceremony music to fit the different parts during the ceremony. We really enjoy performing Charpentier’s Prelude at wedding, as this was no exception, as our string ensemble played this piece of music during the bridesmaid’s processional. Once the bridesmaids got to the front of the church, we performed Pachelbel Canon.  One of our favorite pieces (though somewhat less popular than Jesu Joy is Bach’s other composition, Arioso, which we performed during communion. Rounding out the ceremony was Mendelssohn’s Wedding March.

Bridesmaids: Charpentier: Prelude from TeDeum
Bride: Pachelbel Canon D
Signing: Bach: Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring
Communion: Bach: Arioso

Exit of Bride and Groom: Wedding March

Wedding Ceremony Music: Duo d’Amore-string duos, trios and quartets
