A romantic atmosphere

First and foremost, a string ensemble can create a truly romantic atmosphere. The soft, melodic sounds of the instruments are perfect for setting the mood.

Versatility=unique!

Secondly, a string ensemble is incredibly versatile. They can play a wide range of music, from classical to contemporary, and can even arrange songs to fit the ensemble’s instrumentation. This means that couples can choose music that is meaningful to them and their relationship. Examples include the traditional wedding march or a song that has special significance to them. This versatility also allows for a string ensemble to be used throughout the entire wedding, from the ceremony to the reception, providing a cohesive and elegant soundtrack.

Truly timeless

Thirdly, a string ensemble is a timeless choice. The sound of a string ensemble has been used in weddings for centuries and will never go out of style.

Intimacy

Another unique aspect of a string ensemble is the ability to create a sense of intimacy. The soft, melodic sounds of the instruments can fill a room without overwhelming it. This makes it perfect for a more intimate setting. This is especially true for smaller weddings where the sound of a string ensemble can add warmth and elegance without overpowering the space. It’s also a great option for outdoor ceremonies as the sound of the instruments can carry well,without overpowering the natural surroundings.

An element of surprise

Finally, a string ensemble can add an element of surprise to a wedding. Many guests may not expect live music at a wedding. They will be delighted to hear the beautiful sound of a string ensemble. It’s a unique and unexpected touch that adds a special element of surprise and delight to the day.

Solo Violin -wedding ensembles

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

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 in Stratford ON.

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, dating back to the classical period of music in the 18th century. During this time, 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.

Popularity

In the 20th century, the popularity of the string quartet for weddings continued to grow, as more and more couples sought out the beautiful and timeless sound of classical music for their special day. In addition to classical music, the string quartet also began to incorporate popular songs and pieces from other genres, such as jazz, folk, and even rock and roll.

Duo d’Amore’s wedding ensembles are not only perfect for weddings and corporate events, but also for other special occasions such as anniversary parties, birthday celebrations, and holiday parties. They are available for hire throughout Vancouver, BC, and can travel to other locations as well.
