Andrea + Adam wedding ceremony at The Old Courthouse, June 21, 2014, violin and cello duo, London Ontario wedding musicians
Wedding ceremonies are full of planning and preparation, excitement and when the weather also cooperates, you get a beautiful ceremony like Andrea and Adams. This is something special, which does not always happen!
The music helped to create a wonderful atmosphere for the guest throughout the ceremony. I spoke with Andrea during the planning process, and she decided on the following ceremony music selections. Below each selection, I have made some notes on why these particular selections worked so well as performed by the violinist and cellist at The Old Courthouse in London.
Bridesmaid Processional – Moon River
This is a unique choice for the bridesmaids to walk down the aisle to. It really helps to create a calm mood, with a bit of sentimentality and wistfulness. The song provides a nice contrast (old vs. new, slow vs. medium slow) for the bride’s processional.
Processional – A Thousand Years
A new classic! A Thousand Years is really easy to walk to, and has a bit more drive to the music, something that is important to highlight the brides walk down the aisle.
Signing – Can’t Help Falling in Love
With the previous selections, this works beautifully, as we slip back with a retro fell, but with timelessness as well.
Recessional – All You Need Is Love
This song is best described as being super fun and upbeat, and is a fantastic choice for the recessional.
