We may be a Classical Duo, but when it comes to playing for weddings, anything goes. The most important thing is for us to perform your favourite song or piece of music.
Nowadays there are really no rules when it comes to wedding music. But we have seen trends coming and going and indeed returning over recent years.
Music at your Wedding
There was a time when almost every bride wanted to walk down the aisle to Pachelbel’s Canon in D. Indeed many still do and this remains one of our most requested pieces to perform at a reception or drinks ceremony.
In the last 12 months we have seen a lot of requests for John Legend’s All of me as well as A Thousand Years by Christina Perry. The classic Elvis song Can’t Help Falling in Love is also consistently popular with wedding couples.
Apparently one of the trends set to grow during 2021 is the folk genre. These timeless songs, think of Londonderry Air, Greensleeves, Scarborough Fair, Loch Lomond etc, have always been popular and not just at weddings.
But you might be surprised at what other songs are classed as folk. The Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel, Woodstock by Joni Mitchell and Heart of Gold by Neil Young. Indeed some circles regard Neil Young as one of the best folk rock artists of all time.
We have been recording lots of songs for our Soundcloud Profile recently and over the next few weeks we plan to record a few folk songs, some of which will also appear on our website on the ‘Listen‘ page. So far we have come up with the following songs as prospective ones to record. If there are any we have missed or any you would like us to record for you then please let us know by getting in touch.

Down to the River to Pray
What Child is This?
May it Be
Hope has a place in a lovers Heart
Blowing in the Wind
