Megan and Jim’s wedding ceremony at the Eglinton Grand, violin and Cello duo, August 3, 2013, Toronto ON

“You have been so great to work with in planning our music and I appreciate it!” Megan, bride

Once again, we were honored to take part is such a beautiful wedding ceremony. This ceremony really reflected the bride and groom, as they worked hard to choose music that reflected the both of them: modern but with a real sense of occasion and style. We performed Secrets by one republic for the bridesmaids, followed by a great rendition of A Thousand Years by Christina Perry. This song is sure to become a wedding classic and we are so pleased when clients ask us to play this as it works so well. The couple also had a unity candle and a signing of the register where our violinist and cellist performed All I want is U2 by Bono/U2, and we finished off with Today by the Smashing Pumpkins! What a great mix of music!

Annie and Alex’s wedding ceremony at the AGO, violin and cello duo, July 20 Toronto ON

This wedding ceremony had class, style and beauty written all over it! We always enjoy performing at Baillie’s court in the Art Gallery of Ontario. “Baillie Court is located on the third floor of the newly constructed south tower and is accessed by three guest elevators. With Douglas fir finished, sound proof and retractable air walls, Baillie Court can be divided into three separate and distinct event spaces. A custom designed ceiling grid houses a range of lighting, sound and other in house features.”

Annie and Alex chose a program and selection of traditional classical music, that really seemed to fit with the modern venue and the style to their ceremony, from the first notes of Pachelbel Canon to the last strains of the Mendelssohn wedding March as guests were clapping and celebrating the newly married couple.

Ceremony songs:
Bridesmaids: Pachelbel Canon
Bride: Wagner Wedding March (Here Comes the Bride)
Signing: Vivaldi: Winter from the Four Seasons
Recessional: Mendelssohn: Wedding March
Wedding Venue: AGO
Ceremony Music: Duo d’Amore-string duos, trios and quartets

Hits: 1380

“Duo d'Amore's performance was spectacular. It was the perfect musical touch for our antipasto and reception... wonderful performers and very professional.” Sabrina

Once again, a very satisfied client and a great performance at the courtyard of the Liberty Grand in Toronto. We are always excited to work hard to make sure that we provide the best service possible, and we are so happy when clients fell the same way. Thanks and congratulations!

Danielle and Vince chose our violin and cello duo to complement their ceremony, and add to all of the beautiful décor at their wedding ceremony at the Rosewater Room, at 19 Toronto St in Toronto. Our musicians have performed here many times in the past and everyone had a lovely time. For the prelude music the clients wanted something that was a bit different, modern music centered around the songs below, with Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream played just before the men took their spots , prior to the start of the ceremony. The ceremony music was quite traditional, which was a nice complement and mix along with the modern music head during the prelude, fifteen minutes before the start of the ceremony.

Prelude:
Teenage Dream
All You Need is Love - The Beatles
Beautiful Day - U2
Cinderella Waltz - Disney
Here Comes the Sun - The Beatles

I Think I Wanna Marry You - Bruno Mars
Whole New World - Disney
Ceremony:
Bridesmaids: Pachelbel Canon in D 
Bridal: Wagner Bridal Chorus
Signing of register: Ave Maria
 Recessional: Mendelssohn Wedding March
