Here is lovely review posted to Weddingwire by Stephanie (the bride) from a wedding ceremony and cocktail reception at the Markham event centre on May 19, 2019.
Our experience with Duo d’Amore was outstanding. It was a last minute decision, not even 10 days before the wedding. They’ve made sure everything would be set up perfectly and gave us recommendations to help with the music selection. They created a truly magical atmosphere. This was the wedding of our dreams and they were the final touch, everyone absolutely loved them. Thank you so much !!

This was such a beautiful wedding, held at Wedding Musicians Toronto: Arta Gallery. Tatiana + Jeff’s wedding at the Arta Gallery, October 17. Award winning Toronto/GTA string ensemble.
Our string quartet performed for Alain and Stephanie’s classic wedding ceremony and reception in two of Ottawa’s exceptional wedding venues: The Notre Dame Cathedral and Chateau Laurier. For the ceremony, the clients selected a classic and traditional ceremony music, some of which we shared the performance with the church organist. After performing a number of classical pieces for the prelude, the quartet started performing Bach Air on the G string for the entrance of the bridal party, switching to Pachelbel’s Canon in D as the bride walked up the aisle. These two parts of the ceremony are always the most dramatic, as the bridesmaids and bride make their entrance and the music has to be perfect—combined with the guests sense of expectation and history in the making not to mention the beautiful church, we are always honored to play a part, musically speaking. We also performed another piece by Bach, actually Bach-Gonoud, the famous Ave Maria during communion. For the signing of the register the strings played Bach’s Arioso, and the Church organist performed the recessional. Following the ceremony, the string quartet relocated to the nearby Château Laurier where they performed selection of light classical music.

This wedding held at Canoe restaurant in Toronto was just perfect—a wonderful setting, great ambiance and great music, and of course the couple looked great too.
We performed a modern selection of ceremony songs, from Somewhere over the Rainbow to Lucky by Jason Mraz, and our violinist and cellist in the string duo received many positive comments for their beautiful performance.
