Best Wedding DJ Sydney

Wedding Ceremony & Reception | 28 November 2015 | Melissa & Daniel | Curzon Hall, Marsfield, Sydney

by

I have known Melissa her entire life and have witnessed her grow up to become a beautiful, family orientated, independent woman – accordingly it was a huge honour to have been given the priviledge of playing a part in her wedding day. Daniel is a friendly, and hard working young man whose love for Melissa is just obvious. They are both kind, humble and gorgeous inside and out. Together they are perfect!!

Whilst the weather forcast included a 40% of rain, there was only some very light rain at various times throughout the day it certainly did not disrupt any of Melissa & Daniel’s plans and actually made it somewhat cooler than it has been recently making it just perfect!

After they exchanged vows and committed themselves to a life together in Melissa’s parish church, they made their way to Curzon Hall in the Sydney suburb of Marsfield to celebrate with their family & friends. Curzon Hall is a heritage listed sandstone mansion which was built in 1899 and today is surrounded by three enchanting gardens featuring professional landscaping and water features making it ideal for their pre reception photographs.

The reception was held in a modern addition to Curzon Hall, which sits adjacent to the mansion. This room was simply and elegantly decorated with a stunning hanging floral arrangement being a feature. Guests enjoyed canapés and refreshment on the terrace on arrival before being asked to take their seats in the ballroom. A short time later we welcomed the members of the wedding party with the room erupting in loud cheers and a sea of white napkins creating excitement as Melissa and Daniel were introduced as husband and wife!

Two delicious entrees were enjoyed before we heard from the two very proud dads, a little bit of fun, before the main meal was served. Dessert followed, then speeches from the best man, Joshua and ending with Daniel. This was followed by the cutting of the wedding cake before Melissa and Daniel stepped onto the dance floor for their very first dance as a married couple – this was such a beautiful sight to witness, with both of them totally in the moment and virtually oblivious to anything else going on around them – it was a moment they will remember forever. I feel that some of my amateur images below managed to capture this beautiful and special moment that they shared.

It was now party time! With Melissa leading the charge, (she was literally on the dance floor for the entire dancing time) guests danced the night away. Before what seemed like no time at all, it was time to start wrapping up this beautiful celebration of love. The bouquet toss, garter toss, a lovely moment as Melissa and her dad shared a father daughter dance, a farewell dance where all the guests joined them on the dance floor and through a guard of honour to commence the rest of their lives together.

Melissa and Daniel’s wedding day was filled with the warmth and love of their family and friends. Perfect weather, gorgeous people and lots of laughter, certainly is a sure fire recipe for wonderful memories…..and their day had all these elements and much more in abundance!!!

Melissa and Daniel, it was a total joy and pleasure to have been given the opportunity to play a part in your wedding day as your Sydney Wedding MC and Sydney Wedding DJ. Congratulations on finding your true love! Remember to lean on each other’s strengths and forgive each other’s weaknesses and may every day you share deepen and strengthen your love as you accompany one another to your happy ever after! Wishing you both love and happiness always! May love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!!

Wedding Reception | 22 May 2015 | Tessa & Ulysses Svoronos | The Tea Room QVB, Sydney

by

“Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words” ~ Plautus

Sometimes it the most unfortunate of circumstances and when we least expect it, love can find a way of manifesting it’s presence. It all started with Tessa and Ulysses’ dads who were best friends. Uly even played with Tessa and her older sister when they were all kids. Uly was living in London when he received the sad news that his father has passed away suddenly due to heart failure and immediately returned to Australia for the funeral. It was at the funeral that Tessa & Ulysses met again. They only very vaguely remembered each other but it was the start of a beautiful love story that would eventually lead to their wedding day.

Following the funeral, Tessa looked Uly up on Facebook and following Uly’s return to London, they chatted via Facebook, with a shared love of food, they often cooked a meal together, via Facebook, and posted what they had cooked for each other to see. This eventually led to Skype dates and within five months of the funeral, Tessa felt compelled to go to London. She was met by Uly and welcomed with a “spin, dip & kiss” in front of a terminal full of people. At the end of the three weeks they knew they were in love.

On 3 May 2013, following numerous fake proposals in the week leading up to this day, Uly asked Tessa to be his wife and share the rest of her life with him. Fast forward to 22 May 2015 and here we were celebrating their marriage at The Tea Room Queen Victoria Building. This stylish venue with it’s custom designed Baccarat crystal chandeliers and beautiful Victorian ceiling, was the perfect choice for this gorgeous couple’s wedding reception.

It was an evening filled with lots of wonderful emotions – there were tears, there was laughter, there were more tears, there was a heap of fun and there was love; there was lots of LOVE! It was so beautiful to see just how much Tessa and Uly were adored by their family and friends and to see them join in and truly celebrate their marriage. Lots of guests dancing the night away, Tessa & Uly hoisted into the air (which was really so fitting as we had introduced them as Lord Ulysses and Lady Tessa at the beginning of the evening).

Tessa and Uly are a beautiful fun-loving couple with whom I instantly connected with. I loved meeting with them and hearing some of their stories about their journey which led to their wedding day. Love is not reflected in superficial prettiness. Love is creating
something together that will last long after you are around to see what it becomes. It was such an immense honour to have been given the opportunity to be a part of this historic moment in your lives. I feel so very privileged to have played a small part as your Wedding DJ Sydney & Sydney Wedding MC in creating some of the memories for your future. I know that your love will leave a legacy bigger than you ever imagined! May love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!!

Wedding Reception | 14 March 2015 | Ella & Andrew Xiberras | Castlereagh Hall, Castlereagh

by

While most will associate the work “click” with computers and the act of rapidly depressing and releasing a button on a mouse or other input device, in the case of Ella and Andrew it has a double meaning. This beautiful couple met on Instagram through their shared interest of all things fitness. Little did they know that the simple sharing of fitness photographs would be the start of a beautiful love story. Over the months that followed Ella and Andrew spoke every single day and it started to feel like they had known each other forever. So as they were “clicking” the buttons on the mouse, they also “clicked” as people and as each day passed, their hearts began to beat in unison and faster each time they spoke – oh, did I mention that Ella was located in the United Kingdom?

In September 2013, Ella jumped on a plane from the UK and flew to Australia for four weeks. There was no awkwardness at all, as they greeted each other with their very first kiss Both admit however, that there was some nervousness, with Andrew possibly somewhat more nervous than Ella. As it happened, Andrew was between jobs at the time and they were able to spend the entire four weeks together or as Ella termed it “the perfect month!”. Straight from the airport Andrew took Ella to the City and then on a ferry to Manly where they walked along the beach, enjoyed the sights and being together.

When Ella left following those four weeks, Andrew felt there was something missing in his life, that something was Ella and came to the realisation that he was in love. Similarly, Ella on her return to England confided in her mum that Andrew was the man she was going to marry. A few days later Andrew was busy organising plane tickets for Ella to return to Australia. In January 2014, after Ella having returned to Australia in December and Andrew having given Ella a Christmas present of a weekend away at a retreat in Lithgow, had, unbeknownst to Ella, organised the room to be decorated with rose petals, candles and wine and asked Ella to be his wife. Ella having no idea the proposal was coming, was initially overwhelmed with emotions, but she did say yes. A month later on 6 February 2014 they were married.

When I first met with Ella and Andrew, they told me how much she wanted the wedding reception they did not have on their wedding day and to celebrate with their family and friends. Ella told me how much it meant to her for her dad to walk her down the aisle. They told me of how they were wanting to expand their family. I am so happy that all these wants became a reality on 14 March 2015!

Ella & Andrew selected to have their vow renewal ceremony at Mt. Tomah Botanical Gardens in the Blue Mountains, where Ella’s dad George walked his daughter down the aisle. Their reception was held at Castlereagh Hall in Castlereagh, just north of Penrith and at the foot of the Blue Mountains. With gorgeous vintage styling , stunning views over horse studs and Penrith Lakes and a stones throw from Andrew’s parents home, it was a perfect choice.

Surrounded by love from their family and friends, Ella and Andrew had the most amazing day, they celebrated and everybody celebrated with them! When Andrew announced during his speech that they were expecting a baby, the entire hall erupted in applause which lasted a few minutes – everybody was overjoyed in the happiness that these two have found in each other. It also meant that their third want had also been achieved!

When it came time to party – my lord did they party!!! Just check out the photos and video below to see just how they partied! I am certain they would have kept going all night if we were allowed to. Ella and Andrew, it was such a joy, honour and privilege to be invited to be not only your Wedding DJ Sydney, but also your Sydney Wedding MC and to get to know you both, your beautiful loving families and a glimpse of your dreams for the future – which is all set to be very bright and filled with much happiness. May love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!!

Professional Photos of Katie & Scott’s Wedding | Coast Golf Club, Little Bay, Sydney

by

Three months ago today on the 16th March 2013 two beautiful people exchanged vows, professed their undying love for each other and become one ( happy three month anniversary Katie & Scott!!). I was so blessed to have been able to witness their ceremony and also be given the privilege of entertaining at Katie & Scott’s amazing wedding reception, both held at Coast Golf Club, Little Bay, Sydney.

It was also a great pleasure to work alongside Sue Taylor Photography (Global Sanctuary) who share the same ethos, dedication, commitment and attitude in every aspect of their profession and passion as I do – this is no doubt why they were declared the NSW winner for Wedding Photography in 2012 at the prestigious Australian Bridal Industry Academy Awards (ABIA). They were a total joy to work with and when I approached Sue Taylor, Global Sanctuary’s Founder & Managing Director about the possibility of sharing some images from Katie and Scott’s wedding day for this Blog, she did not hesitate for the slightest micro second. On receiving the images I was blown away with how beautifully everything was captured. Katie and Scott, who are an absolutely stunning couple anyway, look like they belong in a fashion magazine!!.(someone really needs to submit this wedding to a wedding magazine).

The essence of Katie & Scott’s wedding day celebration, the inner beauty of this special couple is beautifully represented and their obvious happiness captured perfectly. I was able to relive many beautiful moments from this very special day as their Sydney Wedding DJ & MC. Thank you so much Sue.
