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!

 

Cocktail Hour:

A Thousand Years – Christina Perri
Con Te Partiro – Francesco Sartori and L. Quarantotto

Hanna + Azhar’s wedding ceremony and cocktail reception at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club, May 23, 2015, violin and cello duo, Toronto wedding musicians

This wedding took place at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club, on Toronto Island, and Duo d’Amore was excited and honoured to be a part of such a beautiful day. To add to the beauty and seamlessness the event was flawlessly planned by Shealyn Angus of Bliss Events (whom we work with as often and possible). From the musical side of things, which is of course our specialty, we had the opportunity to work with the bride in choosing the music for the ceremony:

Bridesmaids Processional: Bach Air 

Bride: A Thousand Years

Signing: Bach Jesu Joy of Mans Desiring

Recessional: Beautiful Day

Theses selections work really well together, as the classical selections played and compared and contrasted with the more modern songs, to give the whole ceremony an air of tradition, complemented by a more modern sound. After the ceremony, the string duet gracefully switched locations to where the cocktail reception was taking place, and continued to play. Just before their departure, the bride thanked them for a great job.
