Duo d’Amore Wedding research in England and Italy 2014

As many of our clients know, I spent the past few weeks on a wonderful trip through parts of central Italy including Rome, Florence and Perugia, as well as additional time in London England. Besides the amazing food and wine in Italy, I had the great opportunity to do a good deal of research into wedding trends and ideas for 2015, as well as spends a good deal of time looking at and playing some wonderful violins, made by Italian violinmaker Filipo Protani. England was more focused on weddings, as I attended a wedding outside of London, and had the good fortune to visit a wonderful exhibit called Wedding Dresses 1775-2014 at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

As with all trips, it’s always very nice to come home again. I am really excited to be refreshed and renewed for an amazing 2015!

Despite the fact that more and more people are choosing to add pop music to their wedding ceremony for a modern feel (which we love!) I was thinking about the untapped possibilities of non-traditional classical music as part of the wedding ceremony. There are so many amazing pieces that run the gamut from romantic soaring melodies, catchy upbeat tunes to more quiet dignified music that can add an incredible degree of interest and personalization to your ceremony. Maybe music that guest and you have never even heard before, but something that just fits perfectly with what you have planned. This is one of the things that I, Matthew the owner and violinist of Duo d’Amore excel at. Why? Because If a classical music nerd, an audiophile and a fantastic resource. I love nothing more than to have an in-depth conversation with clients about the style and mood they are trying to create for their wedding or event, and then coming up with an incredible, interesting and above all exciting playlist.

Please call or email me, and let me know how I can work hard to make your wedding even more memorable, more tailored to what you want, and the mood that you want to create then you ever imagined.
