 We have performed at St Anthony’s Church many times, and it is a lovely location to get married, and the staff at the church are always very helpful, not to mention kind and appreciative of our music!

Lisa and Alexandre’s wedding ceremony there on the 28th of September was a very classic wedding ceremony with songs that are often performed at weddings. We love performing at weddings like these! It’s amazing how many times we have performed songs like The Wagner Bridal Chorus and Ave Maria to name a few, and it is always amazing that each time is different, and each wedding demands a lot of attention and unspoken communication with the musicians as we perform to make sure that songs begin and end at the most appropriate time. This is one of the joys of performing weddings, and we love this aspect of matching our playing and watching the guests and the bride and the priest who we have worked with in the past to deliver not just a solid performance, but one that is in tune with the surroundings, the type of wedding and the wishes of our clients. This is just one of the elements that make’s Duo d’Amore special as a wedding ensemble in Ottawa, and we are luck and fortunate to work with clients who trust us, trust our ability and know that we love what we do, and that this feeling comes out in our performance, our attitude and is transferred to the guests and everyone at the wedding to add to the joy associated with a marriage.

If there is a trend in the wedding industry, I would say that more and more couples are going outside of the box, and customizing and choosing elements of the wedding, whether flowers, attire, venues, readings and specially music that combines classic elegance with elements of contemporary and popular culture. While there are many more decisions for the clients to make, the result is often spectacular, especially of they have a wedding planner or in our case Duo d’Amore who can help guide them in choosing music so that it has the right fit for the client and for a wedding ceremony. In this respect Danielle and Dany did an excellent job!

Looking at the two modern songs by Enya and the Verve, they have a classical feel to them, but also are different enough to add a bit of additional excitement to the wedding ceremony.
