I’m sure that Lesley and Ian had a great time planning their wedding, as we had a great time speaking with them as well as their wedding planner, Tara O’Grady from Bliss events, who was a pleasure to work with!
Leanne and Ian hired Duo d’Amore’s string duo to perform for their ceremony. As the guests were arriving and taking their seats, we the violinist and cellist performed a mixture of classical and popular selections.
Prelude from Te Deum – Charpentier Only Time – Enya Hallelujah – Leonard Cohen Trumpet Voluntary – Clarke Trumpet Tune – Purcell Dante’s Prayer – Loreena McKennitt
During the ceremony, we performed Bach Air on the G String as the bridesmaids walked up the aisle and Bach’s Wachet Auf for the signing. For the Processional and the Recessional, Leanne ad Ian hired Ian Laing, an accomplished piper which is always a nice touch.
As the guests were exiting the Church, we had a great opportunity to resume playing a number of upbeat and celebratory pieces of music taken from both our classical and modern repertoire.
