Raylene + Trevor wedding ceremony June 21, 2014 at the Church of the Rockies, violin and cello duo, Canmore AB

I wanted to say thank you for playing at my wedding. It was absolutely beautiful and I loved having Metallica play walking down the aisle. Got a lot of comments. I didn’t have a chance to thank them after the ceremony so please do for me.” Raylene, bride

This ceremony was wonderful in a different sort of way, and that’s always exciting for us. The biggest difference between this ceremony and a lot of other wedding ceremonies that we perform at in Canmore or across Canada is that we performed Metallica's Nothing Else Matters in a church. That really does not happen too often so it was quite a fun experience for us, the guests and the bride and groom.

After the processional in the wedding, comes the vows, and just after the vows comes the next portion where music is typically performed: the signing of the register. From Metallica, what music was chosen for this: something else unexpected—the very traditional Bach-Gounod Ave Maria. This works perfect for the signing, as it is both long enough (as signings can last up to 8 minutes) and it is also more laid back. This laid back quality is just what is needed to contrast with the more upbeat recessional. Speaking of the recessional, this often takes place just seconds after the signing, as the officiant introduces the couple. For Raylene and Trevor’s recessional the violin and cello players performed Clarke’s Trumpet Voluntary, to end the beautiful ceremony at the Church of the Rockies  with traditional and non-traditional elements.

Wedding ceremony musicians Canmore AB: Duo d’Amore-violin and cello duos, string trios and string quartets

 

Hits: 1894

Our last wedding ceremony was just a month ago in September at the Nordic Centre and it was good to be back. Our violinist and cellist performed an interesting program of music for this wedding that included a mix of more popular and modern songs with more traditional music s well. We started to play as guests were arriving and being seated. The first song that the string ensemble performed was for the groomsmen as the walked in. Although this part of the ceremony typically happens in silence Bittersweet symphony was a natural choice of the opening of the wedding ceremony. The bridesmaids walked to The Rose by Bette Midler, and the bride came in to the famous Pachelbel canon in D. The signing continued with classical music (this is always a great idea) and we performed Bach’s Air on the G string, followed by Viva la Vida by Coldplay for the recessional.
