Wedding Violinist Cellist Niagara at the Hare Wine Co. This was an absolutely beautiful wedding ceremony! The weather forecast was calling for rain throughout the day. We were lucky that it rained just before and after the wedding. But it stopped during the ceremony. The other interesting think about this wedding is the song selections that the couple chose. Them did an excellent job mixing some well known classical music with pop music. Our violinist and cellist were able to seamlessly integrate these songs into the ceremony, starting and ending the music just perfectly.

Wedding Ceremony music program:

Prelude: Theme from Disney’s UP

The theme from Disney’s “UP” is a magnificent choice for a wedding. It encapsulates the essence of love and the enduring bond between two souls. Its gentle melody evokes feelings of nostalgia and warmth. This resonates with couples and guests alike as they celebrate the start of a new chapter in their lives. Moreover, its uplifting notes inspire hope and optimism. This reminds everyone present of the power of love to overcome obstacles and soar to new heights. The theme from “UP” transforms any wedding into a truly magical and memorable experience, leaving hearts filled with joy.

Processional: Wachet Auf and Canon for bride

“Wachet Auf” by Johann Sebastian Bach is a splendid choice for a wedding party. This is due to its jubilant and celebratory nature. The lively rhythm and majestic harmonies of this classic piece evoke a sense of festivity, setting the perfect mood for dancing and revelry during the reception. Its triumphant melody inspires feelings of love, hope, and anticipation. This maks it an ideal accompaniment for the joyful union of two hearts.

On the other hand, Pachelbel’s Canon in D is a timeless masterpiece that is often chosen as the processional music for the bride’s entrance. It exudes an aura of grace and beauty, perfectly complementing the bride’s radiant presence as she walks down the aisle. The gentle progression of chords in the canon symbolizes the journey of love. This builds anticipation and excitement as the bride approaches. Truly an enchanting and unforgettable moment for everyone in attendance.

Signing: Make you Feel my Love and Your Song

“Make You Feel My Love” and “Your Song” are both exceptional choices for the signing of the register during a wedding ceremony. Especially when performed by Duo d’Amore’s violin and cello duo. These pieces offer a tender and intimate atmosphere, perfectly suited for the solemn yet deeply emotional moment of signing the register.

“Make You Feel My Love,” originally written by Bob Dylan and popularized by Adele, expresses profound devotion and unwavering commitment. The soulful melody, accompanied by the rich harmonies of the violin and cello, creates a poignant backdrop for the couple as they officially declare their love and commitment to one another. The interplay between the instruments adds depth and emotion to the music, enhancing the heartfelt sincerity of the moment.

Similarly, “Your Song” by Elton John is a beautiful declaration of love. It captures the essence of the couple’s unique bond. The gentle, melodic lines of the violin and cello delicately intertwine. As the couple signs the register, the dulcet tones of Duo d’Amore’s performance create an atmosphere of tenderness and intimacy, allowing them to fully immerse themselves in the significance of the moment.

Recessional: Best Day of My Life

“Best Day of My Life” is an excellent choice for the recessional. This is because of tit’s fun and upbeat. The song’s infectious rhythm and catchy melody create an atmosphere of celebration and joy.

As the couple and their guests exit the ceremony venue, the energetic and uplifting vibe of “Best Day of My Life” sets the tone for the festivities to come.

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 large sound. Don’t forget that violin soloists regularly perform with a 50-100 piece orchestra. This is in a large hall seating 2000 or more people, and the solo violin can be heard over the entire orchestra. How? This comes down to the skill of the violinist, and positioning. And 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

The violin and cello duo, or string duet, is one violin player and one cello player. And this is our most requested string ensemble for hire. As well, 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 all types of events. 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.

The String Trio

The string trio is made up of the violin and cello, with the addition of a third instrument. And most often this is a violin or viola. We recommend this ensemble for 150-200 guests.

The String Quartet

Our string quartet is the largest ensemble that we have for hire. We often recommend the string quartet for large gatherings, receptions and events with 200 or more guests. The string quartet is one of our more versatile ensembles, as we can perform everything from Bach, Beethoven and Brahms in the classical spectrum, to pop, jazz, folk, Top40 and beyond.
