Eden and Graeme’s wedding ceremony at The Ranche, violin and cello duo, September 7, 2013, Calgary AB

This wedding was perfect, in a very unique way—it rained throughout the ceremony! This might not be some people’s definition of a perfect wedding, but in this case it was. The bride’s family is Scottish, and as the photographer Shannon Yau so elegantly put it on her blog: “the fog mixed with the rain, the tartan, and the bag pipes – it couldn’t have been more perfect.” Our string musicians added an additional layer of elegance and mystique that the venue (The Ranche) and weather had supplied for the wedding.

Alice and Geofrey Flores’ wedding ceremony at the Chapel of the Old Mill Toronto, violin and cello duo, September 6, Toronto ON

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
