Toronto wedding string trio: Casa Loma

The mother of the groom contacted Duo d’Amore looking for music for her sons wedding ceremony at Casa Loma. Deciding between a violin and cello duo,  string trio and a string quartet, they couple chose the string trio. The trio is midway between the duo and quartet, and it’s a slightly more full sounding ensemble than the string duo, which works well in a space like the beautiful conservatory.

For the prelude prior to the ceremony, we typically a selection of classical pieces, and this worked out well as the clients requested that we perform selections by Vivaldi, Bach and other composers whose music is light and airy. This type of music really helps to set the mood as guests take their seats, and again in such a beautiful location, the music really adds to the whole experience.

During the ceremony, we performed Pachelbel Canon in D as the bride walked up the aisle, and more modern music for the signing of the register. When there is slightly more upbeat pop music as opposed to classical, we always advise our clients to choose two songs rather than one, as signings can last as long as 8 minutes. Having two songs that work well together just provides that extra bit of insurance that there will be enough music to last for the whole signing, and keeps the guests entertained with something special that they might not expect. For the recessional we performed the very popular Marry you by Bruno Mars for a beautiful conclusion to a beautiful wedding ceremony.
