Andrea + Adam wedding ceremony at The Old Courthouse, June 21, 2014, violin and cello duo, London Ontario wedding musicians

Wedding ceremonies are full of planning and preparation, excitement and when the weather also cooperates, you get a beautiful ceremony like Andrea and Adams. This is something special, which does not always happen!

The music helped to create a wonderful atmosphere for the guest throughout the ceremony. I spoke with Andrea during the planning process, and she decided on the following ceremony music selections. Below each selection, I have made some notes on why these particular selections worked so well as performed by the violinist and cellist at The Old Courthouse in London.

 

Bridesmaid Processional - Moon River

This is a unique choice for the bridesmaids to walk down the aisle to. It really helps to create a calm mood, with a bit of sentimentality and wistfulness. The song provides a nice contrast (old vs. new, slow vs. medium slow) for the bride’s processional.

Processional - A Thousand Years

A new classic! A Thousand Years is really easy to walk to, and has a bit more drive to the music, something that is important to highlight the brides walk down the aisle.

 

Signing - Can't Help Falling in Love

With the previous selections, this works beautifully, as we slip back with a retro fell, but with timelessness as well.

 

Recessional - All You Need Is Love

This song is best described as being super fun and upbeat, and is a fantastic choice for the recessional.

Andrew and Agata’s wedding ceremony at Pine Knot Golf and Country Club on August 18, 2012, violin and cello duo, Dorchester ON

This was a beautiful wedding ceremony, with an interesting story to go along with it!

We arrived early to setup, and actually had a bit of a hard time trying to find our exactly where to setup. The bride and groom were being married by the arbor down the terrace, and there was not a great spot, or shade for us to position ourselves where we could both see what was happening during the ceremony, or for the guests to hear us very well. We must have looked at 3 or 4 spots, and I was not too happy with any of them. That’s when we looked up, and though about the possibility of setting up on the terrace, above the ceremony. We tried it and had a perfect view of the ceremony. We also tested out the acoustic, and made sure to have the f holes of the violin and cello pointing towards the guests so that the sound would sound full and rich. The amazing part is because many of the guests entered from around the side of th building, no one knew that we were there until we started to play. Many guests were so surprised and delighted to see and hear us play. Truly a memorable wedding!

For the ceremony music, we worked alongside a piper who performed at various points in the ceremony.
