Wedding cocktail violinist cellist Toronto

This wedding took place at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club, on Toronto Island, and Duo d’Amore was excited and honoured to be a part of such a beautiful day. To add to the beauty and seamlessness the event was flawlessly planned by Shealyn Angus of Bliss Events (whom we work with as often and possible). From the musical side of things, which is of course our specialty, we had the opportunity to work with the bride in choosing the music for the ceremony:

Bridesmaids Processional: Bach Air 

Bride: A Thousand Years

Signing: Bach Jesu Joy of Mans Desiring

Recessional: Beautiful Day

Theses selections work really well together, as the classical selections played and compared and contrasted with the more modern songs, to give the whole ceremony an air of tradition, complemented by a more modern sound. After the ceremony, the string duet gracefully switched locations to where the cocktail reception was taking place, and continued to play. Just before their departure, the bride thanked them for a great job.

Violinist Cellist String Quartet Montebello QC

Chateau Montebello is a rustic yet high-end venue, perfect for a wedding indoors or outdoors. We have performed here many times, and it is always a treat. Pamela and Guillaume had their ceremony outdoors just in front of the gazebo. Just before the start of the ceremony, we performed a selection of pop songs (Wonderful Tonight, Top Gun Anthem, Nothing Else Matters, and Fields of Gold, which really set the mood for this wedding. As the ceremony started our musicians performed a new classic: Pachelbel canon for the bridesmaids (instead of the bride) followed by the rich sounding flowing music of A Thousand Years. We love the trend for adding pop music in wedding ceremonies, and this is such a classy way to do it! These songs really work well. For the signing of the register the violinist and cellist performed Bach’s Jesu Joy, which added a timeless feel, but injected a bit of energy and pulse which ultimately was paired nicely with the traditional wedding march to conclude the ceremony, as the couple walked out as husband and wife!
