    Easy going and enjoyable

    Duo D’Amore was the perfect touch for our vineyard wedding. Matthew was amazing to work with and was very accommodating. Bijan (Violin) and Sebastian (Chello) were exquisite for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Our guests loved the music, they were a huge hit!

    Perfect for our Ceremony

    Incredibly talented and perfectly professional. We selected our ceremony songs but allowed Duo D'amore to choose the pre-ceremony songs while our guests were seated and we couldn't be happier with the mood they set for us. We had two musicians play at our Ancaster Mill indoor ceremony and it was the perfect volume and presence needed.

    Wonderful Performance

    Duo d'Amore's performance was truly beautiful and helped to elevate the ceremony. We received a number of compliments from delighted guests. Matthew was incredibly accommodating, and helped guide me through the song selection process to ensure that the ceremony would go smoothly. They also offer a great selection of classical and contemporary songs to choose from.

    Hi Chris,

    It was great to be back at the University Club, and I am really glad that you enjoyed everything. Thanks also for the mention about our large repertoire of pop and classical music--it is always growing and we are fortunate to have one of the largest collections in the country!

    Warm regards,

    Matthew

    Thank you!

    The orchestra did all the songs according to plan. There was a mixup for where the Chapel/church was and the bridal party was late to arrive to the Chapel as well but they handled it gracefully and with much professionalism. Will definitely recommend them to anyone who is booking a wedding in the Niagara region!
