Projection mapping

Use projection mapping technology to display dynamic visuals, patterns, or animations that synchronize with the quartet’s performance. This can create a captivating and immersive visual experience for your guests. Work with a professional projection mapping team to design and execute the visuals. The technology is still quite new, and you would be one of the first to use this in a wedding ceremony!

Digital Invitations

Instead of traditional paper invitations, consider sending digital invitations via email or using online invitation platforms. You can design interactive invitations that include animations, videos, or even virtual reality (VR) experiences.

Wedding Website

Create a wedding website where you can share all the details about your ceremony, reception, and other wedding-related information. Include RSVP forms, a guestbook, and an interactive map to help your guests navigate the venue.

Live streaming

Set up a livestream of your ceremony for those who are unable to attend in person. This can be particularly useful for guests who are located far away or unable to travel. Choose a reliable streaming platform and test it beforehand to ensure a smooth experience.

Social Media Hashtags

Create a unique wedding hashtag and encourage your guests to share their photos and experiences on social media platforms. This allows everyone to easily view and save memories from your special day.

Digital Guestbook

Instead of a traditional guestbook, provide a digital alternative. Set up a touchscreen device or tablet where guests can leave personalized messages, photos, or videos. This can be a fun and interactive way to capture memories from your guests.

Interactive Ceremony Elements

Incorporate interactive elements during your ceremony. For example, you could use a digital screen or projection to display personalized vows, photos, or videos. Consider integrating touchscreens or tablets at each guest’s seat, allowing them to participate in real-time polls or share their well wishes.

Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR)

Embrace the immersive experience by incorporating AR or VR elements. For instance, you could create an AR photo booth where guests can take interactive photos with virtual props or characters. Alternatively, you might offer VR headsets for guests to experience a virtual tour or a 360-degree video of your wedding venue.

Drone Photography

Hire a professional drone operator to capture breathtaking aerial shots of your ceremony or reception. Drone photography adds a unique perspective and can provide stunning visuals for your wedding album or video.

Custom Wedding Apps

Consider developing a custom wedding app for your guests. The app can include the schedule of events, directions, virtual seating arrangements, a photo sharing feature, and other useful information. This provides a centralized hub for all wedding-related details.

What string ensembles do you offer?

The solo violin

The smallest bowed string instrument in the violin family is the violin. It is also the quietest instrument, but that does not mean that it cannot produce a sound. Don’t forget that violin soloists regularly perform with a 50-100 piece orchestra, in a large hall seating 2000 or more people, and the solo violin can be heard over the entire orchestra, and at the very back of the concert hall. How? This comes down to the skill of the violinist, and positioning. This is why at wedding ceremonies for example we often are quite picky about the exact spot where our violinists and ensembles perform, no matter if the string ensemble is outdoors or indoors a single violinist is a great choice.

Duo d’Amore’s solo violinist is a great option for those who want live music but have a smaller budget. The solo violinist performs classical pieces, contemporary pieces, and a mix of both. Their music is perfect for wedding ceremonies, cocktail receptions, and intimate dinners.

The solo cello

Like the solo violin, a solo cellist is a great option for slightly smaller wedding ceremonies and receptions. Larger than the violin, it is very resonant, and can play an equally wide range of music. Clients that hire the solo cello and solo violin for weddings and events often have a guest list of under 50, but not necessarily so.

The violin and cello duo wedding music

The violin and cello duo, or string duet, is made up of one violin player and one cello player, and is our most requested string ensemble for hire. Having both the violin, which is able to play soaring melodies, and the cello which is able to anchor and often accompany, while having an even larger sound it is no wonder that this is our most popular string ensemble. I like to imagine that the violin is like the right hand of the piano and the cello is the left had of the piano, together they can play almost anything, and that is another reason that it is our most popular ensembles.

Duo d’Amore’s violin and cello duo is a popular choice for weddings. The duo consists of a violinist and a cellist who play together, creating a beautiful, harmonious sound. The duo’s repertoire includes classical pieces, contemporary pieces, and a mix of both. Their music is perfect for wedding ceremonies, cocktail receptions, and dinner parties.

What size of group/event would you recommend for a violin and cello duo string ensemble?

The short answer is we often recommend the violin and cello duo for between 50-150 guests, but when mic’s, we have performed for over 600, so it all depends. The more that we know about the type of event that you are hosting, the easier it is for us to recommend a string ensemble that will sound the best and fit with the wedding or special event that you are planning.

The String Trio

The string trio is made up of the violin and cello, with the addition of a third filler instrument, such as a violin or viola.

What size of group/event would you recommend for a violin and cello duo string ensemble?

This larger string ensemble is suited for events with over 200 guests, and larger venues in general. With a slightly larger sound than the violin and cello duo, but not as large or rich sound as the string quartet, the string trio fits right in the middle of the string ensembles that we offer.

String quartet wedding ensembles

Our string quartet is the largest wedding ensemble that we have for hire. The string quartet has a long and rich history. It dates back to the classical period of music in the 18th century. Additionally, during this time, composers such as Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven wrote some of the most famous string quartet works. In the 19th century, the string quartet continued to be an important genre, with composers such as Schubert and Brahms producing some of their most notable works in this format. Also, during this time, the string quartet also began to be used for more private, intimate occasions such as weddings. For all of these events, timing and tempo are crucial. We would be happy to consult with you on planning any one of these.
