Katherine + Marc’s wedding at Ellis Chapel, April 18, 2015, violin and cello duo Cambridge wedding ceremony musicians

Ellis Chapel is a beautiful little church, tucked out of the way between Cambridge and Kitchener Waterloo in the country. Every time we perform here it is magical, in a peaceful way. This wedding started out with guests arriving to light classical music, which filled the chapel and made everyone feel welcome and at ease. The first part of the ceremony where there is a specific point to highlight music is when the bridesmaids and wedding party walk up the aisle and stand at either side of the bride and groom. For this (there was one bridesmaid) the violinist and cellist performed a great rendition of Christina Perri’s A Thousand Years, and transitioned into the brides walk down the aisle. After the vows comes the signing of the register and this is a great spot for more contemplative classical music, such as the Bach Gounod Ave Maria, which fits perfectly. As the ceremony concluded with the officiant pronouncing the couple as husband and wife, the exuberant La Réjouissance from the Royal Fireworks was performed amidst clapping and cheering from the guests.
