The Untapped Potential: How Guest Arrival Music Sets the Tone for Your Entire Wedding. Expert advice from our award winning string ensemble. String duos, trios and quartets performing across Canada.
“It was absolutely lovely – Duo d’Amore were very good. Thank you so much!” Kim and Reinhold
Working with Kim and Reinhold to make sure their wedding was spectacular was amazing, and easy! They wanted a ceremony that was, in Kim’s words “elegant and understated, simple and beautiful.” Using our website as a guide and listening to our samples, they came up with wonderful wedding ceremony music selections, and found the whole process to be easy. Here is the ceremony music they chose for the violinist and cellist to perform:
Bridesmaids processional: Bach - Air on a G string
Bride's processional: Bach - Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring
Signing: Vivaldi - Winter from Four Seasons
Recessional: Handel - La Rejouissance
All of these selections really work well in a room like the Spanish Ballroom, letting the sound of the violin and cello fill the room, and really bloom. Great music for a great couple!

Wedding ceremony musicians Vancouver: Duo d’Amore-violin and cello duos, string trios and string quartets
It’s always nice to be surprised by your clients, and this wedding, we were very surprised and excited by the choice of music, and the overall professionalism and coordination on the day of the wedding. In discussing the ceremony music with Jennifer and Christopher, they came up with several interesting choices for the prelude as the guests were chatting and taking their seat before the start of the ceremony, and for the ceremony itself. The music ranged from the baroque period with an arrangement of the theme from the Goldberg Variations originally written for keyboard, and moved dramatically (thoughwith a lot of style) to Mark O’Connor’s Appalachia Waltz for the bride’s processional. The signing music was the famous and romantic Intermezzo from the opera Cavalleria Rusticana by the Italian composer Mascagni. As the bride and groom exited our string players performed the minuet from Boccherini’s Quintet in D.
Saint-Saens The Swan (solo cello)
Bach's Air on G String
Eine Kleine - mvt 2
Bridesmaids: J.S. Bach-Goldberg -Variations Aria
Bride: Mark O’Connor - Appalachia waltz
