I hired Duo D’Amore’s string trio for my wedding ceremony and I can still hear their beautiful music in my head. The entire experience from booking to the actual performance was top notch. Matthew was quick to reply and to answer any questions I had regarding the music and experience. He also offered helpful advice when asked. The musicians arrived early to set up and were professionally dressed. Their music was absolutely perfect for the ceremony and I had many guests ask me for their information so they could hire them in the future. My only regret is not taping it so I can listen to it again. I highly recommend Duo D’Amore!Allison

Edmonton quartet wedding ensembles
One of the most popular offerings of Duo d’Amore is their string quartet. A string quartet consists of four musicians who play the violin, viola, and cello. The quartet is a versatile ensemble that can perform a wide range of music, from classical pieces to modern arrangements of popular songs. The string quartet is perfect for weddings, cocktail receptions, and other events that require elegant, sophisticated music.

Wedding ensembles Edmonton
In addition to their string quartet, Duo d’Amore also offers other wedding ensembles, including a violin and cello duo, a string trio, and a solo violinist and cellist. These ensembles are perfect for smaller weddings or events that require a more intimate musical setting. The duo and solo performances are also more budget-friendly than a string quartet, making them a great option for those who want live music but have a tighter budget.
Solo Violin -wedding ensembles Edmonton
The solo violin Edmonton
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 Edmonton
Like the solo violin, a solo cellist is a great option for slightly smaller wedding ceremonies and receptions in Toronto and the GTA. 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 Edmonton
The violin and cello duo, or string duet, is made up of one violin player and one cello player. This is our most requested string ensemble for hire in Vancouver. 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?
We often recommend the violin and cello duo for between 50-150 guests. 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 in Vancouver, the easier it is for us to recommend a string ensemble that will sound the best and fit with the event that you are planning.

The String Trio Edmonton
The string trio is made up of the violin and cello, with the addition of a third instrument. Often this is 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, the string trio fits right in the middle of the string ensembles that we offer.
Wedding String quartet Edmonton
Our string quartet is the largest wedding ensemble that we have for hire in Vancouver. The string quartet has a long and rich history. This dates back to the classical period of music in the 18th century. Composers such as Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven wrote some of the most famous and enduring 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. During this time, the string quartet also began to be used for more private, intimate occasions such as weddings.
In the 20th century, the popularity of the string quartet for weddings continued to grow. More and more couples sought out the beautiful and timeless sound of classical music for their special day.
