Gemma & Daniel @ Centennial Homestead, Sydney NSW

Gemma and Daniel congrats! You guys were an absolute pleasure to work with and we were so honoured you chose us to play music on your wedding day. We wish you all the very best for your life together.

Their beautiful ceremony was held at St Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Paddington and the reception at Centennial Homestead in Centennial Park, Sydney.

Live music during the ceremony

I played solo acoustic music live for the ceremony, then Jake and I played as an acoustic duo so guests could enjoy live music during canapés and through dinner. Jake was MC and we both DJ-ed for the second part of the reception.

There is something really special about being involved in a wedding from start to finish. We create a relationship with guests and the bride and groom and feel part of the wedding and we absolutely love this. We intuitively tap into the mood and flow of the evening and work that into how we play and MC.

Bride entry: Sea Of Love by Cat Power

Testimonial
“When we stumbled upon Larissa and heard her voice, we knew she would be perfect for our wedding. We weren’t disappointed, her voice gave us Goosebumps. Larissa made organising everything leading up to the day so smooth and easy in such a stressful time. We were so indecisive about what songs we wanted and she was nothing but accommodating, learning new songs for us with short notice however making it sound like she had known them for years! Our first dance topped off the night, with Larissa singing our favourite song live and making it a such a special moment for us to remember. Our guests all couldn’t stop raving about how much they loved Larissa and how beautiful her voice was on the day, in the church all the way through to our reception. Jake her husband, was so lovely and easy going also, acting as our MC and DJ for the night and helping our night to run smoothly. As a team they were so professional and fit in so well with the vibe we wanted for the night, live and easy listening music for the first part of the day followed by some upbeat music to dance to towards the end of the night. We highly recommend them both.” – Gemma + Daniel, 2018
