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!
