We often perform at St Anthony’s Church on Booth St in Ottawa, and Melissa and Matt’s ceremony was another beautiful event. Many guests arrived early for the ceremony, so we started to play a selection of additional music prior to the start of the wedding ceremony. When the ceremony started, the flow and timing of everything was incredible. As wee knew the number of bridesmaids that were walking down the aisle it was easy for us to end the first piece of music which was Charpentier’s Prelude from Te Deum at exactly the right point, right when the final bridesmaid took her place. Similarly for the rest of the ceremony (most importantly the bridal processional) everything else went exceptionally well, as our playing filled the warn acoustic of the Church. The signing was the popular Bach Gounod Ave Maria, which was followed by The Wedding March by Felix Mendelssohn.

Strings for weddings Woodbridge: Rita and Kevin

May the 18th was a popular day for a wedding, and Rita and Kevin has a lovely one! They were so easy to work with and it was just wonderful working with them. Their ceremony, which included communion, was the picture of elegance, traditional and class. In our correspondence and discussion of what music they would like at the wedding, the couple used our Sample Programs on our Quote page, and chose with Classic Mass option, adding the famous Wachet Auf, or Sleepers Awake by Bach. The entire program looked like:

Bridesmaids processional: Bach Air
Bride’s processional: Pachelbel Canon in D
Signing: Bach-Gounoud: Ave Maria
Communion: Bach: Wachet Auf
Recessional: Mendellsohn: Wedding March

Besides the Pachelbel, this was a real Bach fest! Bach ‘s music works so well because it is both comforting, as many of the melodies are well known, but also because the music is so well written, and it provides lots of interest for the guests, it is easy to walk to and it is endlessly tuneful and happy. The last music on the program was Mendelssohn’s wedding March, and it resounded as Rita and Kevin’s walked out followed by their family and friends. Congratulations!
