Wedding String Trio Burlington ON. Andrea and James’s wedding ceremony at Spencer’s on the Waterfront, string trio September 21, 2012, Burlington ON. There is no question that the city of Burlington has some beautiful venues, but we and our clients always fall hard for Spencer’s. The venue’s angled glass room is very modern, while the service and the attention to detail from the staff has been honed for years, so it’s no secret that we love to perform here.
Ceremony music-classical and pop
The clients requested a mixture of classical and pop music during the wedding ceremony, with classical coming to the forefront. The bridesmaid’s processional was Bach’s Sheep May Safely Graze, and this piece is a beautiful way to ease into the ceremony. As the bride walked down the aisle, the music shifted slightly to a Bach’s Air. This song has a wonderful octave leaps in the bass, which helps to anchor the sound and give the song a great footing to support the soaring and smooth upper line played by the violin. Of course, all of this is accentuated and highlighted by the beautiful acoustic in the room. Still sticking with Bach, the next time the string trio performed in the ceremony was when the papers were being signed. Bach’s Jesu Joy is a natural fit in keeping with the ‘Bach” theme.
Fun, upbeat exit song
As the couple exited just after the officiant announced their marriage, we performed the upbeat and exciting (also very popular) Viva la Vida by Coldplay.Wedding planner: Jackie Scott at Spencer’s

What ensembles do you have for hire?
Listing our Burlington ON string quartet and wedding ensembles
The solo violin
The smallest bowed string instrument in the violin family is the violin. It is also the quietest instrument, but that does not mean that it cannot produce a sound. Don’t forget that violin soloists regularly perform with a 50-100 piece orchestra, in a large hall seating 2000 or more people, and the solo violin can be heard over the entire orchestra, and at the very back of the concert hall. How? This comes down to the skill of the violinist, and positioning. This is why at wedding ceremonies we often are quite picky about the exact spot where our violinists and ensembles perform, no matter if the string ensemble is outdoors or indoors a single violinist is a great choice.
Duo d’Amore’s solo violinist is a great option for those who want live music but have a smaller budget. The solo violinist performs classical pieces, contemporary pieces, and a mix of both. Their music is perfect for wedding ceremonies, cocktail receptions, and intimate dinners.
The solo cello
Like the solo violin, a solo cellist is a great option for slightly smaller wedding ceremonies and receptions in Burlington, Niagara, Toronto and the GTA. Larger than the violin, it is very resonant, and can play an equally wide range of music. Clients that hire the solo cello and solo violin for weddings and events often have a guest list of under 50, but not necessarily so.
The violin and cello duo
The violin and cello duo, or string duet, is made up of one violin player and one cello player. This is our most requested string ensemble for hire in Vancouver. Having both the violin, which is able to play soaring melodies, and the cello which is able to anchor and often accompany, while having an even larger sound it is no wonder that this is our most popular string ensemble. I like to imagine that the violin is like the right hand of the piano and the cello is the left had of the piano, together they can play almost anything, and that is another reason that it is our most popular ensembles.
Duo d’Amore’s violin and cello duo is a popular choice for weddings. The duo consists of a violinist and a cellist who play together, creating a beautiful, harmonious sound. The duo’s repertoire includes classical pieces, contemporary pieces, and a mix of both. Their music is perfect for wedding ceremonies, cocktail receptions, and dinner parties.
What size of group/event would you recommend for a violin and cello duo string ensemble?
We often recommend the violin and cello duo for between 50-150 guests. When mic’s, we have performed for over 600, so it all depends. The more that we know about the type of event that you are hosting in Burlington, the easier it is for us to recommend a string ensemble that will sound the best and fit with the event that you are planning.

The String Trio
The string trio is made up of the violin and cello, with the addition of a third instrument. Often this is a violin or viola.
What size of group/event would you recommend for a violin and cello duo string ensemble?
This larger string ensemble is suited for events with over 200 guests With a larger sound than the violin and cello duo, the string trio fits right in the middle of the string ensembles that we offer.
Wedding String quartet
Our string quartet is the largest wedding ensemble that we have for hire.
One of the most popular offerings of Duo d’Amore is their string quartet. A string quartet consists of four musicians who play the violin, viola, and cello. The quartet is a versatile ensemble that can perform a wide range of music, from classical pieces to modern arrangements of popular songs. The string quartet is perfect for weddings, cocktail receptions, and other events that require elegant, sophisticated music.
