I messaged Jessica when I came across a post from her asking for a Wedding DJ in the Gippsland area, this was a year prior to her wedding date. From then she was such an easy going client to discuss all the vitals for her big day !
Throughout the planning faze we discussed many facets including Music, Photo Booth layouts, template design and MC announcements.
I knew I was in for a treat when she requested that I was to perform on top of a truck bed (see above).
I could not be prepared for how amazing the venue was, Bonnie Brae Barn was next level incredible from all the old signage and country style flair to how Jess complimented the venue with her choice of decoration.
The venue was incredible and I can honestly say after performing at majority of the top venues around Victoria Bonnie Brae is now up there as one of my favourites ! Bravo.
The Ceremony was held outside on the lawn in front of the barn doors, the weather was perfect.
Between Ceremony and Reception the guests enjoyed refreshments and nibbles outside of the barn which was just as impressive as the inside, lots of mis matched lounge suits and seating areas with plenty of visual delights.
Once it was time to get the reception underway (5pm) the guests were reluctant to leave their comfy positions outside, which was fine the evening temperature and sun position made it a very desirable spot to be and lucky enough the bridal party were out for photos until 6pm.
Once 5:40pm hit I wrangled in the guests with the inside bar now being open (spirits included) and the opening of the photo booth. The plan worked perfectly, all guests made their way inside just in time for the announcement of the bridal party.
Bridal Party Enters - Footloose - Kenny Loggins
Groomsman and Flower Girl - Jake & Audrey
Groomsman and Flower Girl - Nathan & Olivia
Groomsman and Bridesmaid - Anthony & Liz
Groomsman and Bridesmaid - Adam & Kelly
Bestman & Maid Of Honour - David & Michaela
All applause was held until after the Bride and Groom made their big entrance and that was a very well thought out plan as the bride had chosen such an incredible song with deep lyrics which she requested be heard and not inhibited by the applause.
Bride and Groom Enter - Falling Like the Stars - James Arthur
Not long after the Bridal Party had completed their entrances the buffet style dinner was ready.
A very tasty carvery meal was well prepared and from all the empty plates well received by all guests.
Post dinner a few speeches ensued from the Best Man, Maid of Honour and an extra special speech from the Father of the Bride.
After the Bride and Groom returned from their sunset photos it was time for their first dance as husband and wife - I Don't Dance - Lee Brice. The newlyweds had a routine for the whole song which they pulled off perfectly, well done.
We then went into the Father Daughter dance which was Maid of Honour Michaela's time to shine as she sang over the top of the original and did a fantastic job !
Open dance- floor was now on as the 'formal' part of the evening was now complete and all guests had a great turn on the dance floor as it was not empty for the 3hrs until last song and last drinks was called.
To round out the night ' On Top Of The World' - Image Dragons proved to be the perfect song to round out the perfect day :)
Congratulations Jess and Anthony, all the best for the future ! I had an incredible time and thanks for having me.
