On Saturday 21 September Duo Decadence went to play Wedding Music at a beautiful Spanish wedding ceremony at Warwick Wine Estate between Paarl and Stellenbosch.
Warwick, with its breathtaking views, made a stunning wedding venue on a typical winters day during Spring in Cape Town. An icy wind could not mute the excitement amongst the guests and everyone waited with great expectation on the arrival of the most beautiful bride!
We played while the guests arrived and waited upon the the bride who entered on “Canon in D”. She left the ceremony on “You Raise Me Up”.
As this was our first traditional Spanish Wedding, we enjoyed some of the customs traditionally associated with Spanish Weddings such as the rice being used instead of rose petals or confetti or bubbles. Since early Roman times grain has been associated with the wedding ceremony. By throwing rice at the bride and groom at a wedding, guests symbolically wish them a lifetime full of blessings like fertility and happiness.
As with most cultures, the wedding rings are a significant part of the ceremony and it is also a symbol of the union between the bride and groom. Although some people may be accustomed to wearing wedding rings on the ring finger of the left hand, Spanish wedding traditions are different. The bride and groom wear wedding rings on the right hand.
At Warwick, the acoustics were absolutely stunning and the violin and clarinet instrument combination sounded lovely inside the small cellar-like reception area. Definitely one of our favourite venues in terms of sound. A huge thank you to Linda for organizing everything to the “tee” and for welcoming us in such a warm manner – always lovely to work with you!
We are having a small break next week-end before we’re off to our next gig with Cape Wedding Trio on 5 October. Looking forward to play again at The One&Only Hotel at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.
