Wedding Music Toronto- Elizabeth and Bruno’s wedding August 24, Copper Creek Golf Course, violin and cello

Our violin and cello duo performed a beautiful wedding ceremony and cocktail reception on the terrace at Copper Creek Golf Course in Vaughan.  As the guests arrived before the ceremony, we set the tome by performing a great selection of classical music, continuing on to the ceremony itself with a traditional theme:

 

Wedding party processional: Bach Air on the G-string
Bride processional: Pachelbel Canon D
Signing: Bach-Gounod Ave Maria
Recessional: Clarke Trumpet Voluntary

One of the things that we really enjoy is being able to tailor the length of songs to fit the portions of the ceremony, and classical selections work very well to create a custom, seamless beginning and end to the various songs. As we transitioned from the ceremony to the cocktail hour we then started to play much more upbeat selections from our extensive pop repertoire.  This is something that adds a really unique and exciting touch, having the strings play both classical and then great pop arrangements, and it is something that the bride, groom and their guests will always remember. Our thanks to photographer Samantha Ong for her beautiful work!

Wedding Music Toronto- She Said “Yes” Marriage Proposal at the CN Tower, Toronto

 I was thrilled with Duo D’Amore from the planning, to the execution, to the immediate follow-up. My overall experience was phenomenal and the performance itself was unforgettable. The violin and cello duo played a custom arrangement that I had requested in advance; it was nothing short of amazing. The price was a bargain, as well. I would highly recommend Duo D’Amore to any and all who are interested in a memorable musical experience!” Eli M.

 

What can we say—this was a great event, and everything came together flawlessly! Eli hired us to perform for an hour at Lookout Level of the CN Tower[embed=video] and as we had arranged, our players would receive a cue to start playing, as he proposed to his girlfriend. She said “yes” and the rest is history! We were honoured to be a part of this fantastic experience!

Wedding string quartet Toronto: Gary and Adora's wedding March 31, 2018, Tyndale University Chapel

 

"It was a pleasure working with you. Your team was amazing" Adora and Gary

 

What a beautiful wedding and look at the gorgeous Church! We had  a great time working with Gary and Adora to plan the ceremony music, and were able to come up with a unique playlist of songs that represented exactly the way they felt about each other and about the wedding day as a whole. Asyou can see from the following playlist, the string quartet performed a mix of classical music, and more modern music. As our largest ensemble performing in such a beautiful, large and resonant space of Tyndale Chapel University Church was ideal, and they we able to fill the Church with the full, nuanced sound of the string quartet!

Thank you Duo d'Amore for adding such a special touch to our wedding ceremony last June 16, 2018. Our guests were so amazed on how you guys played during our ceremony. The string duo was excellent and the music they played was so beautiful. Thank you Matthew for such an awesome experience, you are so accommodating of my request and very efficient in communicating.  We will definitely recommend you.” Maricar, bride

 

It was a real pleasure communicating with Maricar for her beautiful wedding at St Catherine of Siena Church in Mississauga. She hired Duo d’Amore’s most requested ensemble (our violin and cello duo) to perform for her wedding Mass, and chose a great selection of both classical music and popular music to fit the portions of the mass. If you are reading this because you are planning a wedding, it is good to note that St Catherine of Siena Church was very accommodating to different genres of music. Some catholic Churches have a strict list of music that couple s can pick from, and in this case the bride and groom had the opportunity to add some modern flair alongside the classical pieces.
