Weddings

The Denver String Ensemble plays a wide range of musical styles.

Wedding by the sea

Deciding on which pieces to choose for your ceremony, cocktail hour and wedding reception is a supremely personal choice and you will want pieces that have special meaning to your relationship, or carry a message that you wish to deliver to others on your special day. The duration of each piece is not a concern when planning your service. Most quartet pieces are between three and five minutes long and thus fit perfect within each section. Otherwise most classical music contains repeats or recurring phrases which sound excellent if attenuated at a cadence point. For example Pachelbel's Canon is based on a cyclical baseline which means we can always time the bridal entry to perfection! We take our cues directly or by liaising with the Priest or Celebrant prior to the ceremony, so there is no input needed from you on the day. We have added below some information and advice to help you with your wedding music. Please take a look and let us know if you have any questions.
