Wedding MC Sydney

Wedding Reception | 6 March 2021 | Caitlin & Kosta | Curzon Hall, Marsfield, Sydney

by

Caitlin and Kosta are a beautiful couple who are just perfect together. They are caring, gentle, hilarious and fiercely loyal to their family and friends.They first met in 2016 when they were in the same class whilst doing their Honours at University and became good friends.

Their feelings for each other began to grow and around a year later Caitlin and Kosta went on their first date. The location was a Sushi Restaurant in Chatswood. By the end of that date they had shared their first kiss. Not long after, they both realised that they were falling in love.

On 2 September 2020, on a weekend away in the Blue Mountains, with the excuse of celebrating Caitlin’s Birthday, Kosta had created a picture book with photos and memories of their time together and on the last page….was his marriage proposal to Caitlin. There were some happy tears, but the answer was a resounding, YES!

Now no global pandemic was ever going to stop these two getting married and celebrating with their family and friends when they wanted to 🙂 . So here we were just over six months from Kosta’s proposal and Caitlin and Kosta said “I Do!!!”. It was the most perfect day. Not too hot, not too cold, everything was just right and one way or another, everything just all fell into place.

Caitlin looked absolutely stunning and Kosta scrubbed up pretty well also 😉 , but beyond the appearances, for me, it was the deep connection that they shared. A love that has been growing over the last few years, a love that has made them much more beautiful people. It was such an honour for myself to be invited to preside over the reception as their MC.

In the end, it was a wonderful evening as we celebrated their love and their lifelong commitment…..and despite the COVID restrictions, we were blessed that dancing restrictions were eased just before their wedding and a maximum of 30 were permitted to dance at any time, which everybody adhered to. This meant that there was no problem with the Greek Dancing or the normal dancing, which was a concern as the wedding date was approaching.

From all accounts everyone had a wonderful time at a wedding which was elegant, fun and full of happiness. Thank you for granting me the privilege of being your Sydney Wedding MC – you both touched my heart and it will never be forgotten. Caitlin and Kosta, as you start this new journey in life, may every day hold wonderful shared experiences!. May you always find in each other the love, laughter and happiness that only best friends and partners in life share!

Wedding Reception | 1 June 2019 | Deana & Matthew | Le Montage, Lilyfield, Sydney

by

Just a very short post this time round on Deana and Matthew’s amazing wedding. There were so many elements that made Deana and Matthew’s wedding as amazing as it was – this needed my complete attention throughout the reception to ensure everything flowed as seamlessly as possible and unfortunately, there was very little time that I could spare to take more photographs, but please enjoy those that I managed to capture. I have also included a few photographs taken by the talented Phao Photography (these images are appropriately watermarked and should not be confused with my images which contain no watermark).

Deana and Matthew are a beautiful couple who are perfect together. They are caring, gentle, hilarious and fiercely loyal to their family and friends. They celebrated the first hours of their marriage at Le Montage, located in the Sydney suburb of Lilyfield which was lavishly adorned with stunning florals by John Emmanuel Floral Design.

Right from the start of the reception, everybody was there to celebrate and help them have the time of their lives, and what a time we had!!!

The guests cheered, clapped, laughed, sang, danced, enjoyed a beautiful meal, danced some more and kept on dancing right through to the end of the reception!

Deana and Matthew, THANK YOU for trusting me to be a part of your truly amazing day, it was a privilege to see the beautiful beginning of your forever after .. You are both awesome! May love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!!

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!!!

The Grounds Of Alexandria, Sydney

by

In December last year I was pleased to be able to provide some assistance to facilitate my friends and DJAA colleagues from G&M Event Group in Brisbane provide entertainment for a wedding at The Grounds of Alexandria in Sydney.

The Grounds exposed brickwork, hanging leafy garden, fountain, concrete floors, farm animals and a garden of seasonal vegetables and herbs provides quite a unique and stunning space for a wedding ceremony and reception – an indoor garden of sorts! Situated near the city centre, in the suburb of Alexandria, it surrounds a refurbished 19th century pie factory. Today it is home to a café celebrated for its specialty coffee.

The wedding was for Alexandra and Christopher and the location gave their wedding a very chic, indoor garden wedding vibe, which totally fitted in with who they were! Earlier in the afternoon, their ceremony was also held on the grounds with the fountain as the backdrop. Officiated by Josh Withers, the ceremony was very personal, meaningful and one of the best ceremonies I have had the pleasure of witnessing.

It was a beautiful evening in a wonderful location and everybody had an absolute ball! The dance floor was packed all night, testament to the ability of Glenn and Ben from G&M DJs. It was an honour to have been able to provide assistance and witness Alexandra and Christopher’s love!

The Grounds of Alexandria is a wonderful location for a wedding, an oasis in a city of concrete, tar and steel. If you are looking for a great venue for your ceremony and reception, you cannot go far wrong here!

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!!!
