Wedding ceremony music Ottawa ON: Duo d’Amore-violin and cello duos, string trios and string quartets

Hits: 1752

Our string quartet performed for Alain and Stephanie’s classic wedding ceremony and reception in two of Ottawa’s exceptional wedding venues: The Notre Dame Cathedral and Chateau Laurier. For the ceremony, the clients selected a classic and traditional ceremony music, some of which we shared the performance with the church organist. After performing a number of classical pieces for the prelude, the quartet started performing Bach Air on the G string for the entrance of the bridal party, switching to Pachelbel’s Canon in D as the bride walked up the aisle. These two parts of the ceremony are always the most dramatic, as the bridesmaids and bride make their entrance and the music has to be perfect—combined with the guests sense of expectation and history in the making not to mention the beautiful church, we are always honored to play a part, musically speaking. We also performed another piece by Bach, actually Bach-Gonoud, the famous Ave Maria during communion. For the signing of the register the strings played Bach’s Arioso, and the Church organist performed the recessional. Following the ceremony, the string quartet relocated to the nearby Château Laurier where they performed selection of light classical music.

Sandra and Joseph’s wedding ceremony at Kanata United Church, October 20, 2012, violin and cello duo, Kanata ON

I just wanted to write you a quick note and commend you and your musicians for a fantastic job at our wedding. I was only able to catch half the show myself but from what I heard from my guests, it was amazing. Thanks again for helping to make our BIG day spectacular! Sandra, bride

Sandra and Joseph’s wedding was very traditional and beautiful, and the music perfectly complimented the ceremony. In our initial correspondence, the bride already knew that she wanted to walk down the aisle to Pachelbel’s Canon, and chose a number of additional songs to complement this selection. Particularly nice was the addition of an additional choice at the end of the ceremony. Although we always perform music as the guests exit, in this case the bride and groom chose a wonderful selection by the baroque composer Charpentier. This was a great choice, as it is always nice to see clients that are looking after their guests on the wedding day.

Processional: Clark: Trumpet Voluntary
Bride's Processional: Pachelbel: Canon in D
Signing: Bach: Jesu Joy of Mans Desiring
Bride and Groom's Recessional: Mendelssohn: Wedding March
Guests Recessional: Charpentier: Prelude from Te Deum

Stephanie and James’s wedding ceremony at the Orchardview Wedding and Conference Center, September 29, 2012, violin and cello duo, Ottawa ON

Stephanie ad James has a classically beautiful wedding ceremony held at the outdoor ceremony site at the Orchard View wedding and conference center in Ottawa. Prior to the start of the ceremony our violinist and cellist performed a selection of light classical music as guests were taking and taking their seats. When it was time to start the ceremony, the string duo started with the first of the bride and grooms music choices: Bach Air. This music was performed as the bridesmaids walked down the aisle. For the bride, we played Pachelbel Canon in D. The signing of the marriage register was set to Vivaldi’s Winter from the four seasons—a popular choice that works well for shorter signings. The recessional was Charpentier’s Prelude from Te Deum and rounded out a wonderful ceremony.
