What happens during a free live wedding music demo?  🙂 This is where we meet the bride and the groom and work out your wedding music for the ceremony and/or pre-drinks ceremony.  We discuss the songs on which the bride would like to enter and leave the church, also possible music for signing the register.  We often decide beforehand where the musicians should set up – front or back of the church/chapel?  Are we staying in one place for the pre-drinks or are we moving?  All depends on the venue – if we should move it would take less than 5 minutes so it takes no big gap out of our playing time.

Most of our bookings are for 2 hours which allows enough time for the wedding ceremony and pre-drinks.  Normally couples make use of our duo for providing music when entering the church on the Wedding March, during the sign of the register and for leaving the church.  Because we do not ‘work’ ourselves to death during this booked hour, we offer the couple free music before the service starts while guests arrive.  We arrive at the venue at least 30 minutes before the service starts to set up, warm our instruments and tune.  The music prior to the service creates a relaxing atmosphere and get people to be more talkative.   As soon as we start making music, most people start talking and that is always a sign that everyone is relaxed and excited.

Why live classical wedding music?  With our instrument combination on violin and clarinet, we can reach where the DJ cannot reach with power points to provide music.  The acoustic sound simply creates a wonderful enchanting atmosphere.  It creates memories, not visual only but also ….music is the language of memory.  Often people stop in the foyer while we play and just listen for a few moments, sometimes even stop by for a short greeting and little conversation.  This is what your guests will remember – the food and the music!

Duo Decadence is available 7 days a week, including mornings.  We are also available for weekday weddings which has become the latest ‘trend’.  You can reach us via the contact-us page on the website or phone us on 0836054423 or email Elanie on elanie.lagrange@gmail.com
