18 Mar WEDDING MUSIC FOR PINK WEDDING AT DURBANVILLE HILLS WINERY
We love playing wonderful wedding music for our many same-sex clients. Their weddings are invariably classy and elegant affairs in the best taste. This picnic wedding was no exception. Anthony and Anthony said their moving vows in a secluded, leafy courtyard, both dressed in white, in front of an intimate gathering of friends and family. We, wedding musicians, were playing as a Duo (flute and violin, a popular combination for small, intimate weddings.) As the guests assembled, we set the tone with uplifting light classics and movie theme tunes such as ‘The Mission’. Guests are always delighted to listen to our brand of live musical entertainment, we see their happy smiles and are thankful for this gift of music which we have been given. For the Wedding March, the two Anthony’s had a friend sing them in most beautifully.
After the Ceremony, everyone relaxed on glamorous throws and co-ordinated cushions in this lovely shaded courtyard, protected from the wind, in front of Durbanville Hills Winery in the Durbanville Winelands. After generous libations of wonderful champagne, Stephanie and her team brought out a procession of stunning picnic baskets, decorated with purple flowers. The contents more than lived up to the decor, consisting of a most generous and succulent assortment of cheeses, salads, bread, quiche, fruit kebabs, pate`, chocolate truffles and Turkish Delight.
The courtyard was filled with the soothing sounds of trickling water and birdsong. With our strolling gypsy serenades, it made a wonderful setting for a romantic Cape Town wedding. The guests loved especially our lively Jewish items from Fiddler on the roof, and after the picnic was finished, the most musical guests joined us in singing the Pachelbel Kanon in D! They did an excellent job with us on this famous and beloved Baroque piece. Much later, when everyone was in a merry mood, Ant did a Marilyn Monroe impersonation as he threw his bouquet to the guests, which was received with great hilarity. Throughout, Stephanie, the Banqueting Manageress at Durbanville Hills and her staff provided a faultlessly smooth and unobtrusive service, ensuring that everything ran smoothly and happily.
