Songs for ceremony

 I have been looking for processionals songs that consist of just two violins I am having a more traditional wedding, and just don't know where to begin with the songs.
 Any suggestions?

Thanks

    If you're hiring professionals who frequently play in weddings they probably have something in their repitoir. Otherwise, try just Googling "violin duet," then checking various YouTube videos to see if you like the sound. There are some lovely concertos, but you run into the problem then of requiring either piano or orchestral accompaniment.

    Mozart did a duet for two violins that could be quite nice as a processional if played properly...

    There are plenty of traditional tunes that a violin duo can play, including:
    "Canon in D" - Pachelbel
    "Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring" - Bach
    "Spring" from Vivaldi's "Four Seasons"
    "Air" from Orchestral Suite No. 2 by Bach
    "Air" or "Alla Hornpipe" from Water Music by Handel

    As PP said, ask your musicians, they should have plenty of suggestions if they play weddings regularly.
