Reviews:



"Fabulous to deal with, completely reliable and punctual. Price was reasonable. The music was phenomenal and unique: our choices as well as their choices pre and post ceremony. Barely saw them on the day of as I was the bride hiding in the back but was able to hear all the wonderful pieces which got me excited and emotional to walk down the aisle to my husband. Perfect day with perfect music."

February 2014

"Thank you so much Matthew for being such an important part of our special day!! The duo did a fantastic job, we and the guests were so impressed! Matthew worked with us in advance with the program - sharing expertise and customizing the selections to suit exactly what we were looking for. The website was easy to use and infomative - we had fun choosing our song selections. Everything was as promised and as expected!

“I could not have been happier with my ceremony music from Duo d'Amore. The violin and cello duo sounded amazing, and they conducted themselves like true professionals. All of my questions were answered right away, and I was even given the suggestion to have a certain song for the bridesmaids that fit perfectly with my wedding march. I highly recommend Duo d'Amore!”

Rachel & Brian, July 2010

“Duo d’Amore was a fantastic addition to our ceremony! The planning and lead-up to the big day was stress free and execution day of was second to none! Thanks for helping make our wedding more meaningful then we could have ever imagined!”

We were very happy with Duo D'Amore. We got a string duo (violin and cello) for our wedding last weekend. We had had the idea of having the theme from Zelda (beloved video game from our childhood with an awesome theme song) as our Recessional tune, but I wasn't sure how easy it would be to find musicians who would go through the trouble of making a custom arrangement for us, and I was worried such a thing might up the cost. Imagine my delight to find that Duo D'Amore included 2 custom arrangements with each booking! They did a great job, many of our guests recognized the tune and commented on it, we got a lot of love for that one haha! Matthew was incredibly responsive and often replied immediately to my inquiries using his smartphone which I really appreciated since it was new to me and I had quite a few questions at first. I don't think I ever waited more than 24 hrs for a response from him (usually far less) which I really appreciate in this age of quick communication! I also liked how their website gives advice for the musical selections with snippets/samples of music so that you know what to expect. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Duo D'Amore, especially if you want some awesome/ quirky custom arrangements :)

Matthew and the Duo d'Amore team were amazing. I requested mostly popular songs and the ones they didn't already play frequently they arranged specially for us, and they were perfect. They worked with our ceremony and full itinerary, their timing was perfect, Matthew was even kind enough to call a few days before to ensure everything was set and to walk through it with me on the phone. Great service and price, and all of our guests loved the touch they gave to the day.

We hired Duo d'Amore for our wedding ceremony and we could not be more pleased. We asked them to come 30 minutes early instead of 15 and they were happy to accomodate us. They were also able to play all of the songs we requested for the ceremony and did so beautifully! I teared up when I heard them start playing "Sunrise, Sunset." Thank you Duo d'Amore for making our wedding ceremony so special! We give them our highest recommendation and definitely suggest you book them for your wedding ceremony if you're looking for live music.

Their instruments sounded great and you could tell they are extremely talented. Some of my favorites were "Don't Stop Believing", "Time to Say Goodbye", "Here Comes the Sun" and "Bittersweet Symphony". This is the way to go. Classy and fun. Thank you Matthew and team!

We booked a violinist and cellist from Duo d'Amore for our wedding ceremony. Matthew was very responsive to phone calls and emails. They played all the songs we requested, even ones that weren't on their samples list! Their performance was beautiful and everything was perfect.
We also had them stay for about half an hour to play at the reception during cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, where they played some pop songs. We didn't get to see/hear this since we were taking pictures, but several of our guests said that they were great and the song selection was fun.
The price for live music is worth it, since you have to take into account the hours of training and preparation, including practicing the songs you choose. Highly recommend!

Duo d'Amore played as a string duo at my sons wedding......I was so proud to have given this as a wedding gift to the happy couple......and what a perfect gift it was.....I truly cannot think of the ceremony without Duo d'Amore.....

The music was exceptional....so emotional & a delight to the ears.....not a dry eye in the house! Lol! Just what I had wanted...

They were so professional & discreet.....they slipped into the venue as quietly as they slipped out......both of the musicians were so in sync with one another that during the ceremony they played music during the quiet moments that we had not previously discussed.....they just knew when to start & when to stop......
One could certainly tell that this was not their first rodeo! Lol!

Our guests are still raving over the beautiful ceremony accompanied with this amazing duo! I would highly recommend Duo d'Amore to anyone who would like to take their event from nice to spectacular!!!! Truly, money well spent with zero regrets.......I will definitely book Duo d'Amore for any future events!!!!!

We had two musicians at our wedding for our ceremony. They played beautifully and added such a nice touch to the overall experience. They were totally open to playing a song that wasn't on their list, which was fantastic. They were a little unresponsive during the planning process, but we were getting married in August, which is the peak of wedding season. Overall, it was a great experience and they sound fantastic.

The duo's performance was wonderful at our wedding in June 2013. They were also super easy to deal with and responding quickly to any questions I had. At a fairly late date they agreed to accompany a friend of mine who I wanted to sing Ave Maria during our ceremony. They made it work without hesitation and I couldn't have been happier. My favourite moment though was when they played La Vie en Rose as I walked down the aisle. It was a beautiful rendition and exactly as I had imagined it in my mind.

We requested quite a few special pieces that were not on the usual "wedding" lists. Matthew from Duo D'Amore assured us that his musicians could take care of them all - and they did, beautifully. Our ceremony music was stellar, the musicians were lovely and professional, and our guests were very complimentary. The only (very minor) issue was the slight worry caused by the long-distance - we were in Vancouver, and Matthew (who does all the booking) is in Ontario. A few more timely emails would have been appreciated and eased stress prior to the day. However, overall - highly, highly recommended. Thank you, Duo D'Amore!

We hired Duo d'Amore a sting duo for our wedding at the Old Mill chapel on October 13. The musician's were absolutely amazing!! I can not even express the feeling i had when i heard our wedding song coming down the isle. It brought tears to my eyes. It was absolutely perfect. We picked three custom songs. Nine inch nails - A warm place, Metallica - Nothing else matters, and Foo Fighters- Everlong.
The custom arrangements of these songs, were so beautiful, and fit each part of our ceremony wonderfully. The musicans were on time, dressed appropriately, and were very professional. I wish we had more time to visit with them after the ceremony to express our gratitude for there amazing work.

Commincation was a bit lacking during the planning process, but to be honest, the job they did at the ceremony makes up for that. I wish i could get a recording of there amazing renditions. I would give anything to hear those songs again.

To wrap this up for anyone looking for musicains for there wedding, Definitley book Duo d'amore. You wont be dissapointed!

Matthew and his collegue were absolutely amazing! Everyone loved the music, the songs were beautiful! They were also very flexible.

My bridesmaids got a bit ahead of themselves and walked in way too early (while the music for our mothers' entrance was still playing), and Duo D'amore made everything sound as if it was planned. No one (except my husband and I) even noticed.

I can't say enough good things about Duo D'amore. I'm so happy we booked them. If you're considering a string duet, trio, etc, I would HIGHLY recommend using Duo D'amore.

Duo D'Amore made our wedding dreams come true. I surprised my husband by hiring a string duo for our wedding ceremony and we were ecstatic with our music! Specifically, Matthew Hayes worked day and night to create a custom arrangement of Radiohead (my husband's favourite band) for our ceremony. The musicians were prompt, professional and perfect performers! We took full advantage of their Modern Repetoire and managed to have string duets of Sarah McLachlan (my favourite artist), Coldplay (Our favourite artist), and Radiohead (my husband's favourite band) as well as Adele, Josh Groban and Bruno Mars! The music at our ceremony was such a very special part of our wedding and we would highly recommend Duo D'Amore for any special occasion!

Duo D'amore went above and beyond my expectations when they performed at our wedding ceremony in October 2011. It was clear that they have done this many times and really did not need any direction at all - they were very intuitive and knew when to begin playing, when to stop etc... They are very talented musicians and the music set the perfect mood. I would highly recommend thier services.

Our wedding was slightly more complicated due in part to the logistics - as the we live east of Ottawa and the wedding was west of Toronto (by four hours) and Duo d"amore was in yet another location. This did not make a difference overall - Duo d'Amore was easy to get a hold of and most of the discussions took place between the couple, us as parents of the bride and the folks at Duo, via internet. The overall result was fantastic. The music was lovely and added a real sense of style to the occassion. I would not hesitate to recommend Duo d'Amore to friends and family.

The musicians provided by Duo d'Amore were amazing. We asked for a custom arrangement for our ceremony music, and they did a fantastic job. The arrangement sounded beautiful and exceeded our expectations. In fact, it probably sounded better than the original! Thanks again.

The music at my wedding was everything I wanted it to be. I had an arrangement written of a pop tune as well as some classical music I selected from Duo D'Amore's website. The quality of the playing was outstanding. The quartet members are so talented and professional. Many of my guests have since commented on the string quartet and wished they could have had them for their weddings. They made my special day all that much more memorable and I would recommend them to any bride.

Duo d'amore provided the perfect music for our wedding held at a vineyard. We were able to choose the music we wanted for the actual ceremony, and the celloist and violinist also played music beforehand while our guests were arriving, which was beautiful. If I had to do it all over again, I would hire them in a heartbeat!

We found the service by Duo d'Amore to be truly first rate for our ceremony. The process of booking, and selecting music was simple and intuitive. Our questions and concerns were addressed quickly and efficiently. On the day the music was first-class, the performers were professional and added a unique component to the ceremony. We could not have been happier with the experience of working with Duo d'Amore, and would highly recommend them to all.

Overall, we were quite satisfied with our experience with Duo d'Amore. Responsiveness in terms of email could have been better, but they were usually available by phone. The musicians did a nice job of arranging the custom music requested but did not have the most extensive repertoire. The music sounded beautiful and the guests enjoyed themselves.

I love the musicians that came to our ceremony to play, they were wonderful. Dealing with the main customer service wasnt the best as I had to call to find out if my money arrived, the pick what they play etc... which is fine, but I was told that they would call a few times for different reasons and they didnt.

The musicians were on time and did a lovely job. I had to confirm (which was fine) but perhaps a follow-up email or somthing to the bride or coordinator a week or so before the event would be a nice touch.

We had a duo for a 130-people ceremony, the music was beautiful and true to the samples online, we couldn't have asked for more! The selection suggestions were helpful, the musicians were available prior to the wedding and very professional. The fees were more than reasonable compared to other quotes we received from other vendors.

We held our wedding at the National Gallery of Canada, in Ottawa. When we were planning the event, we thought that live music would suit the space, which is very beautiful but stark. However, we had never before hired musicians. After lots of research on the Web, we decided to contact Duo D'Amore about booking a duo (cello and violin). We were not disappointed with our decision!

Matthew Hayes, the owner of the company, responded to us in a prompt and friendly manner. The price was attractive. The Duo D'Amore Website had sample music selections and that made it easy to choose our music, since we had rarely listened to chamber music. We chose songs that we had heard at other weddings and which we thought would suit our wedding.

Our wedding was a joyous occasion. The event had two parts. First, the musicians were hired to play at a pre-wedding reception for our guests. Waiters circulated with trays of hors d'oeuvres and there were bowls of non-alcoholic punch. We did not select the music for this portion of the event. The second part was the marriage ceremony. We chose the 3 songs needed for the ceremony itself.

Afterwards, everyone commented on how classy it was to have live music and many people told us how much they had loved the music. We thought that the music was perfect! Although we told the musicians how much we loved the music, we think it was clear to them by the many happy faces that their efforts were appreciated!

We would definitely recommend this company to anyone planning an event - it worked out perfectly for us and made our wedding memorable.

I could not have been happier with my ceremony music from Duo d'Amore. The violin and cello duo sounded amazing, and they conducted themselves like true professionals. All of my questions were answered right away, and I was even given the suggestion to have a certain song for the bridesmaids that fit perfectly with my wedding march. I highly recommend Duo d'Amore!

I booked Duo D'Amore to play at my wedding in Ottawa. I was living in Halifax at the time. Matthew Hayes gave me confidence that the musicians would find the park location of the wedding and play at the service. They did both (beautifully). Air on G String made lovely processional march music. The musicians were professional (in appearance) and displayed excellent musicianship. A number of my guests are musicians and concert goers--they were very impressed by the exceptional skill of the musicians.

First of all this review is long overdue and I apologize for that. I would like to thank you and your musicians for exceptional service. We had a 20 minute delay at the church due to issues with our florist and I was so thankful that my guests had such beautiful music to listen to while they waited. I realize they had to play longer than what was expected yet never said a word to me. I was extremely grateful as the afternoon was stressful enough. I cannot say enough good things about my experience.
