Wedding Ceremony DJ Sydney

Wedding Ceremony & Reception | 29 March 2019 | James & Jerome | Ecco Ristorante, Drummoyne, Sydney

by

James and Jerome met just over thirty years ago. They share a love for ballet, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, travel and Kylie Minogue and today, they were making it all official, exchanging vows and becoming husbands.

It was a beautiful Sydney afternoon as family and friends gathered on the deck at Ecco Ristorante in Drummoyne with a stunning view of Sydney Harbour as a backdrop. Shortly afterwards, to the sounds to Pachelbel’s Canon in D, exquisitely played by Jasmine Strings, James, Jerome and their Wedding Party proceeded to walk down the aisle. What followed was a beautiful ceremony, which was wonderfully officiated by Kathyrn Breusch. The ceremony included heartfelt vows from both James and Jerome. Before we knew it they were married and pronounced husband and husband!

This was followed by drinks and canapes whilst guests congratulated James and Jerome, chatted, caught up and enjoyed the spectacular view. Not long after, everyone was seated, the wedding party were introduced and welcomed with great applause, with the biggest applause for James and Jerome. Guests were then served a delicious entree.

Next was the cake cutting, a presentation of a gift to James and Jerome and a dance off where one of the guests whom was celebrating a birthday was inconspicuously made the target of a fun prank, in a nice way of course. Lots of fun for the participants, guests and Ian our birthday boy!!

Guests then enjoyed a delectable main meal before we proceeded with the speeches. James, Jerome and Jerome’s sister Lesley all made lovely speeches, but the highlight was a little surprise that Jerome had planned for James. Jerome is a huge ABBA fan and he approached me about doing his speech which included sound drops of particular ABBA songs. We discussed a number of ways to execute this, but ultimately went for the option which would flow better and eliminate any potential hiccups. This was a HUGE hit with all the guests and of course James.

Below is Jerome’s speech with the red text being where the drop from the ABBA song occurred:

My dearest James,

Mamma Mia! Here we are, on our wedding day proving that when it comes to love – The Winner Takes It All. It was fate that brought us together thirty years ago when you said, “Take A Chance On Me“. You really did Rock Me. In no time at all we began Knowing Me, Knowing You and once we worked out The Name Of The Game, we had fallen well and truly Head Over Heels. I feel like a Dancing Queen whenever you Lay All Your Love On Me. You make my heart go Ring Ring and all I have to do is send out an SOS and you’re always there to Gimme!, Gimme!, Gimme! support, advice or a shoulder to cry on. Today I have truly met my Waterloo and I could not wait to say I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do. All that’s left is to ask – “Voulez-Vous?”

You can hear Jerome’s speech here:


Guests then gathered around the dance floor as James and Jerome danced their first dance together as husbands. It was a choreographed dance to “Give Me Your Love” by Fame – once again enjoyed by all the guests. With no formalities left, all there was to do was dance the night away….and dance they did!!

Before we knew it, it was time to farewell James and Jerome and the celebration came to an end. James and Jerome’s wedding represented them totally, there was no pretense, just authenticity. It was a lot of FUN and from the comments I received as guests were leaving, everyone had such a wonderful time. James and Jerome, thank you for the trust you placed in me – it was a privilege to play a part in your wedding day which was thirty years in the making. May love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!!

Wedding Ceremony | 18 November 2018 | Hannah & Alok | Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney

by

I had the honour and pleasure of providing ceremony coverage for Hannah and Alok in the Rose Garden and Pavilion Area of the Royal Botanic Garden in Sydney on this perfect Sunday morning.

It was a very intimate ceremony officiated by Married By Meera under the Fig Tree and the stunning arbour created by Jewel Phon Flowers. It was also a pleasure to work with Sarkodie Photography and Faure Valletta Photography.

It is very rare that I cover Ceremony only, but am very grateful to have been able to witness the love that Hannah and Alok have for each other. May love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!!

Wedding Ceremony & Reception | 20 February 2016 | Jenna & Aaron Conway | Pier One Sydney Harbour, Sydney

by

The love story of Jenna & Aaron began whilst they were both deployed at sea in the Royal Australian Navy. As circumstances would have it, they had been on the same ship for around five months and had not run into each other. It was not until they were in Tokyo, that they met in a bar and felt very comfortable with each other that the spark was ignited, they had their first kiss and this relationship commenced.

A week later, they went on their first date – bowling, movie (which Jenna fell asleep in) and dinner. Since they were on the same ship, they met for dinner and a coffee regularly and the relationship commenced to blossom. By the time they got back to Sydney 4 months later, they realised that they were in love. It was not until Jenna was posted to Perth around four months later that they both knew that they could not live without each other.

At the end of March 2014, Aaron placed a ring inside a Kinder Surprise, knowing that Jenna always craved chocolate after dinner, organised Thai food for dinner and when Jenna returned from her afternoon Gym ritual, he knew she would ask for chocolate, which she did. This plan almost backfired on Aaron as Jenna could not feel/hear anything in the Kinder Surprise and thought it was empty, but was surprised by an engagement ring. A shocked and speechless Jenna eventually said yes and here we were overlooking beautiful Sydney Harbour at Pier One as Jenna and Aaron became husband and wife.

It was an absolutely perfect day for this lovely couple. A beautiful ceremony, officiated by Angela Blattman before Jenna and Aaron signed the official documents and were pronounced united in marriage. Congratulations all round, a group photograph and Jenna, Aaron and their wedding party were off for photographs by MM Photos, around the city.

Meanwhile, guests were treated to refreshments and canapés. A little while later we welcomed our newlyweds and their wedding party. A delicious entrée, speeches by the two dads, Mark and Brett, the father daughter dance, main meal, a few words from the best man, Adam and Aaron, a couple of fun activities, dessert and it was time for the first dance. This was a beautiful moment which I am certain that Jenna & Aaron will treasure forever. It was then party time!! and as you can see from the photographs and video below, they certainly did party!

All too soon it was time for the Mother Son dance, the farewell circle, a farewell dance and it was time for Jenna and Aaron to start the rest of their happy ever after as husband and wife.

It was an amazing wedding with an awesome couple who truly adore each other. It was a wedding which was filled with many personal touches and whilst the circumstances which led them to me when probably not the most ideal for them, I am so pleased that the universe decided that our paths should cross. It was not only a pleasure, honour and privilege to have been asked to take part in this lifetime event, but a whole heap of fun. Jenna and Aaron, thank you for selecting me as your wedding MC Sydney and also as your wedding DJ Sydney. May love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!

Wedding Ceremony & Reception | 28 November 2015 | Melissa & Daniel Stilloni | 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!!!
