Wedding Ceremony & Reception | 4 March 2017 | Dryridge Estate, Megalong Valley, Blue Mountains

by

Following a week of rain leading up to K & M’s wedding and rain forecast for their wedding day, this beautiful couple, who have requested privacy, but graciously allowed me to share some location and décor photographs, took it all in their stride, made some slight allowances and let the day unfold without any fuss or stress whatsoever. Rain did fall throughout the day, sometimes heavy and sometimes creating a misty haze of water, but it did not dampen this couple’s resolve to have the best wedding day ever.

In the lead up to the wedding K & M also experienced their venue being sold and having to deal with finding an alternate location for their wedding only a couple of months from their wedding day. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise as their replacement venue of Dryridge Estate, located in the Megalong Valley in the Blue Mountains was so lovely. Dryridge Estate which is nestled in the beautiful Megalong Valley in the Blue Mountains, surrounded by towering sandstone escarpments, Dryridge Estate is a stunning boutique vineyard which has recently added facilities for weddings and private functions.

Minutes before ceremony time we made the call to risk conducting the ceremony outside under the tree overlooking the vineyards. Except for a few drops here and there, the ceremony proceeded without incident and K & M were married. A quick group photo before the rain came down with guests just making it to the protection offered by the Marquee. Meanwhile K & M and the photographer braved the elements for photographs around this picturesque property.

Well what a truly wonderful evening it was!! K & M commenced proceedings by performing a choreographed dance on entry to “Cantina Band” from Star Wars by John Williams before guests joining them for a short dance set. This was followed by a delicious buffet where we released the tables one at a time after each table had participated in a selection of various activities ranging from Bride & Groom Trivia, Singing For their Supper and Guessing the Song. All this was interspersed with lovely heartfelt speeches, the Newlywed Game and the Cake cutting before everybody hit the dance floor again. Dancing continued until the end of the evening and ended with on a high with everyone singing and dancing to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody.

K & M’s wedding was lots of fun, intimate, personal,  relaxed and overflowing with love. It was an extreme honour and pleasure to have been given the opportunity to play a part in their lifetime event. They are an awesome couple who are so deeply in love. They created a wedding that was a joyous fun celebration.. and I LOVED every second of it. Thank you for the trust placed in me as your Blue Mountains Wedding DJ, Blue Mountains Wedding Ceremony DJ and assisting as your Blue Mountains Wedding MC – I will cherish the experience and memories. May, love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!!

Wedding Reception | 14 January 2017 | Deckhouse, Woolwich, Sydney

by

Whilst rain had been forecast, it ended up being a very warm, beautiful sunny day for A & D’s wedding. This beautiful couple have asked for privacy, so whilst there will be no photographs of them or their guests, they have graciously permitted me to to share some décor and location shots of their amazing wedding! A & D chose Deckhouse to celebrate their wedding. Located in the Sydney suburb of Woolwich right on the foreshore at Woolwich Dock, Deckhouse has a lovely setting, is tranquil and hidden but with spectacular views up the harbour to the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the city skyline.

The wedding was filled with plenty of smiles and laughs for many reasons, but mainly because A & D are a fantastically cool couple with beautiful friends and family. There were tears, there was laughter, there was dancing, there was fun and there was the odd beverage. What else can I say about their day? It was a great wedding with a great couple.

A + D thank you for giving me the utmost honour of investing your trust in me as your Wedding MC Sydney & Wedding DJ Sydney. It was such a pleasure to be a part of your day and I enjoyed all our telephone conversations, our meetings and helping you both create your wonderful wedding day. I feel blessed to have witnessed a love that is deep, meaningful and honest; to have witnessed a family that loves you both and will be there if you ever happen to need them. Love is the strongest power…. It has the potential to make impossible possible… My wish for you both is that you are blessed with the power of love for life and always enjoy happiness and togetherness in your life. May, love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!!

Wedding Reception | 17 December 2016 | Cortney & Hil Yin Choi | The Tea Room QVB, Sydney

by

Cortney and Hil’s first encounter occurred in 2011, but it was not until 2012 that they started to interact more and a relationship began to develop. Cortney and Hil are a beautiful couple and their wedding celebration was full of family love, warmth and many emotions.

Following their ceremony earlier in the day at Barker College, Hornsby, they chose to celebrate at the Tea Room in the Queen Victoria Building, Sydney. With the room looking stunning, thanks to the lovely ladies from Decorations By Jelena, the fantastic wedding cake by Pretty Parties and the photographic and videographic skills of the team from Hugo Photography & Film, it was such a great celebration. Surrounded by family and friends, we were so privileged to witness a deep tender love that has grown despite the difficulties that these two have faced due to distance, as one was studying in Townville, Queensland and the other in Melbourne, Victoria over the past four years.

From our first meeting in the first week of this year, I could see that Hil totally and utterly adores Cortney, the way he always has his arm around her, the way he looks at her with loving eyes, she is his angel and he treats as such. Just as equally Cortney adores Hil. When they are together, they are rarely separated and Cortney just radiates joy. Together they are an awesome couple who are very deeply in love and work hard to ensure it remains that way.

During the reception there were many emotional moments for both Cortney, Hil, their respective parents, siblings and those nearest and dearest. All the speeches throughout the evening were meaningful as well as entertaining and was enjoyed by all the guests.

Around five weeks before the wedding I received an email from Hil with the subject of “Secret Song”. As nearly all my dealings in regards to the wedding had been with Cortney and her mum, Jeanie, the fact that I was receiving an email from Hil and that subject line had me more than a little curious. On opening the email, I discovered that Hil was planning to surprise Cortney by singing her a song during the wedding reception. It also asked whether I was able to provide two wireless microphones, patch in a guitar and requesting suggestions as to when would be best to sing the song. I replied with all the information he needed and asked that he confirm certain details. As I subsequently learnt during the best man’s speech, Hil is not one for returning texts and if he does, they tend to be very, very brief. This also appears to apply to emails, or so it seems – as when I did receive a response about five days prior to the wedding, it did not contain enough information for me to ensure that I was up to speed on the finer details of exactly how this was going to executed.

On the day of the wedding I came prepared with everything I could think I needed to pull this off, but was not even sure if it was going ahead – until minutes before the doors were to open to commence seating the guests, when in strolls a gentleman with a guitar. Quick patch in, tune, determine the levels and we were set. During the evening, in those rare moments when Cortney was not by his side, he was frantically going over the lyrics to the song and then following the cutting of the cake it was time for him to sing. Personally, I thought it was a beautiful moment, there are some photographs below that I managed to capture, but take a listen yourself to Hil singing Ed Sheeran’s “Tenerife Sea” to Cortney, aided by his friend, whose name I unfortunately didn’t get, on guitar and the best man, Gideon on backup vocals. The applause at the end of the song certainly verifies that it was quite a performance and a special moment.

As mentioned above, it was truly a beautiful wedding and I enjoyed every moment of my involvement in it. Cortney and Hil, thank you so much for the trust you placed in me and the honour and privilege you gave me in allowing me to play a part in this very special day as your Wedding DJ Sydney and for part of the evening, your Wedding MC Sydney. I hope you enjoyed every moment of your amazing wedding day. Based on everything I learnt about the two of you in the lead up to your wedding, you are completely perfect for each other! Your love will continue to grow even stronger with each passing day and I see nothing but a life filled with love for the both of you. Have a fabulous time on your honeymoon in New Zealand!! May, love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!!
