Melissa and Matt’s wedding ceremony, June 15th, St Anthony’s Church, Ottawa

We often perform at St Anthony’s Church on Booth St in Ottawa, and Melissa and Matt’s ceremony was another beautiful event. Many guests arrived early for the ceremony, so we started to play a selection of additional music prior to the start of the wedding ceremony. When the ceremony started, the flow and timing of everything was incredible. As wee knew the number of bridesmaids that were walking down the aisle it was easy for us to end the first piece of music which was Charpentier’s Prelude from Te Deum at exactly the right point, right when the final bridesmaid took her place. Similarly for the rest of the ceremony (most importantly the bridal processional) everything else went exceptionally well, as our playing filled the warn acoustic of the Church. The signing was the popular Bach Gounod Ave Maria, which was followed by The Wedding March by Felix Mendelssohn.

Tessa and Ben’s wedding, June 15th, Rothney Astrophysical Observatory, Calgary AB

We had a great time performing at this wedding, and the location was fantastic! Combining this with the couple’s unique and non-traditional pop arrangements of some of the ceremony songs, this was a ceremony to remember!

When Tessa and Ben sent the selections to me, I was struck by how nicely they had combined popular film music with well known classical music, and how well the arrangements sounded for the violinist and cellist. And if you’re having your ceremony at an Observatory, the Imperial March music from Star Wars is a must!

Bridesmaids Processional: Storybook Love from the Princess Bride
Bridal Processional: Handel: Arrival of the Queen of Sheba
Signing: Edelweiss and Vivaldi Winter
