When I was fourteen I played at my first wedding, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Over the past six years, the nervous energy before each wedding has turned into pure excitement, and I count myself luck to have been able to share in over 50 couple’s special days.
From the pre ceremony, through to the first dance - providing the soundtrack for your special day is an absolute privilege for me, and something I love to do. With sweet love songs to embrace the romance of the day, to more upbeat covers following the ceremony to keep things pumping - it is my goal to set the perfect atmosphere, and to follow the natural progression of the day.
I like to arrive at the venue at least 45 minutes before the wedding starts, and my fee includes supply of a top quality sound system. I can also arrange a microphone for the celebrant to use during the ceremony, if asked in advance.
If you’d like me to choose the song list for the day, I am happy to do so. I’m also a coffee fanatic and love a good yarn, so I’m all about coffee dates to discuss the details of your big day! I am happy to take requests for your ceremony songs, but I’m also able to offer guidance regarding what songs have worked best at past weddings.
Below I have attached a few of the most popular ceremony songs, most of which will link to my live performances. From singing the bride down the aisle, to the signing of the register, and finally to the couple’s celebratory walk back down the aisle - here are a selection of my favourite songs for the occasion:
Happy - Pharrell
Marry You - Bruno Mars
Signed, Sealed, Delivered - Stevie Wonder
Following the ceremony, I will generally provide 2 x 50 minute sets whilst guests mingle and enjoy the middle part of the day.
The first dance is such a special part of the day, and I love being able to sing the newly married couple a song that is personal to them. I am happy to learn whatever song the couple may request for this part of the day.
I’ve had the privilege of playing at events, functions and weddings all throughout New Zealand and in Queensland, Australia. I have performed at some of New Zealand’s most beautiful venues, including the following:
