This wedding at Graydon Hall was absolutely stunning, and we were honored to be a part of it.  We had a really fun time talking about song selections for the ceremony, and we came up with an excellent grouping of songs to fit each part of the ceremony perfectly. The music was performed by Duo d’Amore’s string trio and we received many really nice comments from the guests.

String quartet wedding music Ottawa

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.
