Katherine and Daniel’s wedding ceremony at Whistle Bear Golf Course, September 28, 2013, violin & cello duo, Cambridge ON

This wedding had everything going for it: a beautiful couple, a wonderful ceremony at Whistle Bear Golf and Country Club, great weather at the end of September, and of course amazing live music from the Duo d’Amore’s violinist and cellist.

The ceremony music was a particular highlight of this wedding, and the couple chose the ceremony music very well. While the signing and the brides processional were both classical selections, the re was also a modern element to the ceremony as well, s both the music for the bridal party and the recessional were pop hits. This added a nice touch, and blended everything together nicely. We could not have asked for a better day!

Lisa and Alexandre’s wedding ceremony at St Anthony’s Church, September 28, 2013, violin and cello string duo, Ottawa ON

 We have performed at St Anthony’s Church many times, and it is a lovely location to get married, and the staff at the church are always very helpful, not to mention kind and appreciative of our music!

Lisa and Alexandre’s wedding ceremony there on the 28th of September was a very classic wedding ceremony with songs that are often performed at weddings. We love performing at weddings like these! It’s amazing how many times we have performed songs like The Wagner Bridal Chorus and Ave Maria to name a few, and it is always amazing that each time is different, and each wedding demands a lot of attention and unspoken communication with the musicians as we perform to make sure that songs begin and end at the most appropriate time. This is one of the joys of performing weddings, and we love this aspect of matching our playing and watching the guests and the bride and the priest who we have worked with in the past to deliver not just a solid performance, but one that is in tune with the surroundings, the type of wedding and the wishes of our clients. This is just one of the elements that make’s Duo d’Amore special as a wedding ensemble in Ottawa, and we are luck and fortunate to work with clients who trust us, trust our ability and know that we love what we do, and that this feeling comes out in our performance, our attitude and is transferred to the guests and everyone at the wedding to add to the joy associated with a marriage.

Krista and Tristan’s wedding ceremony at Hauser Hall, September 28, 2013, violin and cello duo, Heidelberg ON

This wedding took place just outside of Waterloo, in the small town of Heidelberg. The venue is the Hauser Hall, and it is the perfect venue for more intimate weddings and events with around 100 or so guests. For this ceremony we performed a mixture of classical and pop music, with slightly more pop music than classical, and the guests really enjoyed our performance. As guests we arriving and being seated, we performed mostly light classical music, a s we find that this sets a calming mod, and as the music is on the quiet side, guests have the opportunity to get settled and converse with one another in a pleasant atmosphere, At the start of the ceremony we performed Mouret Rondeau, which immediately adds a very stately presence and is the perfect signal that the wedding has officially started. The next point in the wedding ceremony where the violin and cello duo performs it typically during the signing. As this is a great time for reflection, not to mention photos, the music for this part of the wedding is a bit quieter, and the couple chose Everlong by the Foo Fighters. After the quiet music during the signing we switched to something loud, and exciting for the recessional, and ended with the popular Here Comes The Sun by the Beatles.

Processional: Mouret Rondeau
