 This wedding ceremony highlighted many of the elements that make wedding ceremonies a joy to perform at. As the f=guests were arriving, the violinist and cellist performed a modern set of music that was lively, upbeat, fun with a few slower songs mixed in as well. This prelude created some of the wow factor for the guests, as a number were somewhat surprised (in a good way!) to hear such modern music performed on the more classical violin and cello. Once all the guests had taken their seats, we were given the cue to start the music for the bridesmaid’s processional, which was Bach’s Air. This is a perennial favorite for the bridesmaid’s music, as it creates a lovely and fresh mood to start off the ceremony. This music contrasted very well with the brides processional that followed—the famous Pachelbel Canon in D. The signing music was a hybrid piece, part of which was written by JS Bach in the 18th century, and was almost “remixed” in the 19th century by the French composer Gounod. This is an absolutely stunning piece of music in it’s own right, and like the bridesmaids music, it too is a popular favorite for the signing of the register. The recessional was the up-tempo, and regal Clarke Trumpet Voluntary, and it capped off the ceremony with wonderful energy and fanfare.
